A little about me

Hi, I'm Cayla!

I am a photographer with a strong love of adventure and authentic experiences. I love connecting with new people and making those around me smile (go figure, right?). I live in the Hudson Valley area of New York but will travel wherever you'll take me! When I'm not off galavanting with my camera, I am playing hopscotch with my 4-year-old or keeping my 1-year-old out of the dog's food bowl. Crime shows, party games, folk music, coffee shops, and singing with my family are my jam. I would also dare anyone to challenge me to a game of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. trivia ;]

If you'd like to know more, book a shoot, or just connect, please reach out! I would love to hear from you :]

My Style

I am not a "smile and look at the camera" photographer. While my job as a photographer is to capture a moment in a digital format, my real goal is to allow you to cultivate memories by participating in jokes, games, and conversation during the session while I stand back and snag a still of you in the frame. I am a mother myself and understand the beautiful balance that exists between chaos and patience. I want to help you celebrate your relationship or your family in a way that extends past the images that I deliver. My method of unposed or "candid" portraits are achieved in a natural light setting in a variety of outdoor and indoor locations.
