intimate storytelling photography

hello, I'm Kerlyn!

I have two cool dudes, one is thirty and the other is three! I am a firm believer in God and love his grace and goodness in my life. I rock boots all the time, hate my toes, constantly am wanting to chop my hair, and dig traveling with my tribe. My son has ASD (autism) and I am a passionate supporter of all his needs and cannot even begin to express how much he has inspired my work! I love The Office, indie folk + alternative music the most, and adore spontaneous moments. Life is messy and beautiful and I love telling those stories through visual art!

My passion + why it's matters

OH YEAH, I'm that person/artist/planner that is there every step of the way. From offering a client wardrobe, choosing magical locations, planning your timeline, CREATING a one-of-a-kind experience for you, and just generally being that person you come to about anything. I take all that on (and more) because I want the best for YOU every step of the way!
I am a curator of intimate moments and adventurous storytelling, whether its next to a waterfall or even if that's in your own backyard. My passion is to tell your authentic story and to create an experience from beginning to end that leaves you feeling something more as a mother, as a couple, or as a family. I want to help foster the goodness that is already there and capture photos that truly encompass everything in your life - vulnerable moments, laughter, each soft touch - through my artistic view. I believe in memories upon memories, beyond the digital world...having a tangible piece from the moments made together are just as important as the time spent making them. In my work I capture the authenticity of your feelings that you are unable to put into words and the details that make up your magical life!
