My portrait experience ensures you get just that.

Serving your big milestones, the little moments, and everything in between.

Luxurious Heirlooms for a Lifetime


I get it. Taking photos may not be exciting for everyone. My goal is for you to leave our session feeling confident and excited for the gallery. Taking photos should be fun, not dreadful. 

Discover Effortless Beauty 
Artfully Preserved Authenticity

You will receive all of your high-resolution hand edited images in less than three weeks. Safely preserved in a private online gallery, your photos can be downloaded, printed, and shared however you wish. I offer printing and albums through my professional lab partner.

05. Presentation of Gallery

This day is all about you! Leave all the posing, lighting, and camera settings to me. You won’t have to worry about a thing.

04. Your Session Day

If you already have a spot in mind, let me know. I’m always open to your ideas! If you'd like suggestions, the booking questionnaire will help me come up with spots you’ll love whether that’s in nature, downtown, the football field, by a waterfall, in a field of flowers… we’ll make it happen.

03. Deciding the Location

After booking, I’ll send you my outfit guide which is full of tips, inspiration, and advice. Feel free to send me your outfit ideas and I’ll help you choose! 

02. Outfit Assistance

After contacting me through my website, I’ll respond as soon as possible within 48 hours. I’ll send over my senior or family guide with pricing and more information. Once I know which collection you’d like, we’ll decide on a date and time that works best for you.

The Portfolio




I would recommend Makayla to anyone looking for someone to capture those special memories!”

- Sarah Gilbert

“From the moment I inquired about getting photos taken she was timely, professional, and knowledgeable. Makayla was flexible with scheduling times. She was knowledgeable about great locations to take photos. The pictures turned out amazing. Makayla was quick to return the final pictures to us so we didn't have to wait. I couldn't be more pleased."



Yes! Though most of my senior and family sessions are based in the Fox Valley, I travel all over the United States and the world. I find the beautiful architecture and landscapes of Europe to be fascinating, the East Coast to be beautiful and peaceful, the West Coast to be full of life, and the Caribbean to be warm and inviting. 

Do you travel?

Yes! Once you receive your private online gallery, you’ll be able to purchase prints and albums directly from there. They’ll be delivered from my printing partner in Minnesota who creates gorgeous, long-lasting prints that you can’t get at Walmart, Shutterfly, Walgreens, or any other drug store.

Do you offer printing and albums?

Yes! Upon booking, you’ll receive my personal phone number so you can contact me with any questions you have, or to just say hi. My clients become my friends, and I’m so honored to be a part of such a joyful part of your life. 

Are you accessible?


I’m here to be your photographer, friend, and hype-woman. Let's make your dream photos a reality.
