Hey! I’m Kayla Kohn, a momma to two wonderful girls and married to my highschool sweetheart. I photograph newborns and families here in the heart of the country – Kansas. I never thought I would be a photographer but sometimes your gifts find you. I served in the Air Force for 9 years where I finished my second enlistment as an Air Force Photojournalist (yup, it’s an awesome job in the military.) That’s how I learned to use the camera on manual mode. It gave me my first experiences with camera gear, lighting knowledge and craft experience. My comfort level in being able to grab my camera and go out and get the photo is all because of the way I learned to shoot the camera — in random situations and locations covering stories and shooting from the hip.
My transition into family and newborn photography was seamless and natural. I had my second daughter at the same time that I had just finished 3 years of photojournalism and got out of the military. I continued to use my skills I learned to photograph my girls. Then I started photographing friends and family. Now, it’s your turn.
xoxo – Kayla K
HOW MUCH DO PORTRAIT SESSIONS COST?
All of my sessions (newborn and family) are $375 and include 15 hand-edited digital images. After you receive your proofing gallery, you will have the option to upgrade your collection to more images. Most clients spend $527 on the middle collection, which includes 30 images, 7 5x7s and a 5×5 keepsake photo book. You get to choose which images you want in your collection.
WHERE DO FAMILY PORTRAIT SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Family portrait sessions are photographed outdoors using sunset golden light. So, youR session will be scheduled the hour and a half before sunset and last 45 minutes to an hour. All sessions that are photographed outdoors (family portrait and maternity) are photographed at my farm on 40 acres near Overbrook, Kansas. It’s private and easy for everyone! Outdoor sessions may be requested with a different location, with a driving fee added to the session price.
WHEN DO NEWBORN SESSIONS OCCUR?
In-home Lifestyle Newborn sessions are best done within the first 1-3 weeks after delivery but I like my families to have lots of time to settle back in with their new little one so I hope to do them most of the time in the second week.
Fresh 48 sessions are photographed usually the next day after the baby is born around 11 am.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
If you’d like styling advice then lets chat. Always avoid logos and loud prints. Neutral and complimentary colors are in. Avoid matching everyone the same. One easier process is to pick moms dress FIRST! and then build everyone else to compliment her.
HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED?
I typically book one to three months in advance.
