Kayla Hannaford


My passion is not just creating imagery, but creating artwork.

A tangible, beautiful product that can be held, displayed and enjoyed every single day.

I truly pride myself in offering a boutique, full-service experience. 

There is something so beautiful about truly serving my clients and watching their vision become reality. 

Delivering a piece of artwork that will last lifetimes.

As all photographers do, I started by handing my clients a disk of endless images that they will never sort through let alone print. This huge mound of memories that may never be viewed again; especially if the disk got lost or days got busy.

I was doing my clients a disservice, I wasn't delivering them a final product.

My love for tangible art really appeared when I bought my first home, I had these blank walls that made me feel nothing. Such a strange thought - a wall evoking an emotion, but a painting of flowers from a home store just didn't work for me.

It started with one piece, a canvas of my puppy.

All of a sudden I got a little chuckle when I saw her little face in the morning.

I was hooked. These beautiful happy moments that were frozen in time on my walls, gave me a smile every single day.

I want to do this for other families, I want to spark a smile on a rainy afternoon or tear drop when your child goes off to school. I want to give families the gift of a lifetime; true artwork.

Stunning Custom Artwork

The Consultation

We will chat on the phone so I can learn more about yourself, your family and how we can best serve you. Each session is custom curated to fit you. We will chat about all details from the outfit to the must have poses or groupings. We will also select a location. Is it park, the beach or in the studio?

The Session 

The session! This is the best part, we will have the best time! Wether your goal is a newborn session, family portraits, a headshot session or boudoir we will create something beautiful and have an amazing time!

We have everything you need in studio for newborn sessions + so many amazing maternity gowns!


The Ordering Appointment


We sit down and view all of the portraits that we created together. Here you can select stunning artwork for your home, an incredible acrylic cover album or a package of digitals. However your family would like to preserve their memories; we offer many options.

We then chat about edits you may love.

We understand that we are not for everyone, but the people we are for will experience customer service like no other. Endless customization options, the ability to view their portraits in size on their walls digitally, snacks, wine & the guarantee that we create something they LOVE.


Editing Approval


We email you a copy of your edited portraits for approval. Once approved they are sent to the most incredible lab and made into timeless, heirloom quality artwork for you to hand down through generations. Each piece of our wall art comes with a lifetime guarantee and a certificate of authenticity.


The Final Artwork


Enjoy. These memories are important right now, but the true value of a moment  is not realized until the moment has long passed. What we create today, will allow you to relive that moment in time tomorrow. Or allow your kids to admire the lines in your smile, the kindness in your eyes, or the laughter you shared many, many years after you and I are gone. We are not creating a fleating post on facebook,

we are creating art.
