I'm Kyla,

I want to create art for your walls that tell your brilliant love story...

When fresh starts feel awfully stale.

I love to write, and have always stopped myself because I'm the person who writes "hear" instead of "here" and "to" instead of "too," and the embarrassment of that was enough for me to say "Nah, I'm not good enough." 

I'm learning to push through, I'm throwing myself out there when I don't have the answers and it feel pretty uncomfortable sometimes. I figure it's easier for people to relate to someone going through the journey, than victorious on the other side. At least that is what I'm telling myself. 

Fresh starts have been on my mind, we see it all the time, but I find September and January are times we tend to focus on getting our ducks in a row, and often it feels messier than we ever imagined.

Fresh starts may not be where you are at either, maybe you are starting out your journey as a mom and it feels awfully stale, lonely, and anything but fresh. Maybe it's a big move, or a diagnosis, or starting the hard work of counselling and working through your crap. Starts don't always feel fresh, they feel raw, they feel heavy, and like anything new or that brings change, a challenge. I want to encourage you that, it doesn't have to be ok. We don't have to pretend the beginnings of change are the best, and that we are ready to move mountains that maybe in the end only get nudged,  but I do want to encourage you that the hard work is worth it, that out of pain beauty can rise. If I have embraced anything over the past few years it is that there is enough grace for little old me, so that means there is grace for you too.  Fall arms wide open into that truth.

Take on the day with compassion for yourself, and see where it goes from there. 



Hill Family

It turns out we are just blessed to know good people. Another connection from my parents who had us all in for dinner, and made us feel so welcomed and right at home. Pepper got to play with baby Olivia, and found herself with some pink car envy! 

This session happen as we watched the darkest thunderstorm clouds roll in, but that didn't stop love from being shown, and I consider myself lucky to have captured this family together, doing what they do best. 

Klager Family

If love, laughter, humor, kittens, horses, dogs, luge helmuts,upright bass', pretty light and thunderstorm clouds aren't your thing, than you may want to avoid this lengthy blog post. This family welcomed me in (and being friends of my parents, had them and me and my kids over for dinner the next night, talk about a warm welcome!) and gave little instructions, but to capture them as they are. This session was a gift, and I'm putting up a slew of photos to prove it.
