Cranberries and Tea Photography

When I was thirteen, I shadowed a local studio photographer and had a less than pleasant experience. I walked out of that building with the hairs on the back of my neck standing up, in realization that I was going to do it differently.

Not that I could do it differently. That I wouldThere was never a doubt that I was meant to do this.

From that point on, I paid close attention to the way that people talked about themselves. The way they viewed themselves. The way certain things made them feel and react and open up. Being someone who was always an observer made it easy to pay attention to the little details about people.

And I took that one day and ran with it, in hopes to change the photography industry. And that is still my constant goal.

The thing is this: somewhere down the line, photography became more about remembering what the moment looked like over how it felt. And that is a truly tragic loss. . . because there is far more beauty in the passionate than the pretty.

I started my business with the mindset of helping people bring out who they already are. Every step I take during a wedding or session is taken in your interest and yours alone. 

Your families, your dogs, the way you love - these are all things that are truly individualized to you. I do not photograph every couple the same, nor do I bring materials like styling boards or props to events - every material I use to create an image is found that day with you. All I bring is a camera and myself.

Judgments, insecurities, and expectations are left at the door: we're both here for who you are at this moment, not who you've been. This is you.

This is you.

Makayla has such a beautiful style and she is so easy to work with! The images she took during my event are BREATHTAKING and we were so happy to have her there! I would recommend her for ANY photography needs, as she is warm and inviting and does an AMAZING job (:

Makayla has a way of making you feel like you've known her your entire life. When you hire Makayla, you gain a friend. She is warm, energetic, adventurous, and authentic. I didn't have a single moment of doubt or hesitation during our engagement session. Makayla helps you create intimate and genuine moments. She doesn't direct you, she lets you be yourself and creates a really fun experience. We are blown away by the photos. She captured the essence of us. We will treasure these photos forever. We can't wait to have Makayla at our wedding, not only as our photographer, but as our friend.
