I'm Makayla, it's nice to meet you! Fresh Air Connoisseur. Professional Netflix Binger. Uncontrollable Laugh-er. I have this crazy idea that the smallest details tell the biggest story. I'm lucky enough to cuddle with the same writer every night, along with our punk of a puppy, Chaucer. I hand-knit blankets as an excuse to procrastinate sometimes and I don't have a single strict rule during sessions (except to be yourself. That's the golden one). I won't neglect to photograph your necklace that has been worn for generations, or the way your tables are carefully crafted together. My philosophy is simple : you do something amazing, like laugh or kiss. And I capture it. Every small element comes out during your session in ways that you never imagined possible. I get to know you, your family, and the things you can’t live without - and I do it all in the comfort of your home, coffee shops, or killer bagel restaurants (I'm open to suggestions). I take every piece of your personality and create a personalized session that doesn't involve forced smiles or awkward posing. Your session is you. Honest. Authentic. You. Do you have a love for sweaters and boots, and just cannot get over this new coffee you tried? Maybe you thrive on quiet forests or love every single minute of your crazy life. Let's have a session there. In your backyard, in your studio, down the street at Caribou. It's the perfect place for us. I'm ready when you are.
