Hey! I'm Kalyn
Based out of Northern Virginia, as a military spouse, this is where we will be calling "home" until the Army tells us otherwise.
I’m a mother to three littles, wife to Alex, and I can easily tell you that my world revolves around my family. I love Jesus, iced coffee, jamming out to Elton John, Ed Sheeran, and The Beatles, exploring new places through travel, getting lost in a good book, finding hidden gem restaurants, and spending time with my favorite people. The simple things in life make me most happy!
My style is filled with natural light and lots of emotion. When photographing a session, I try to capture the moment as I see it unfold in an artistic way that is both real and full of life. It's typically a blend of documentary meets lifestyle. I like bright airy whites, vibrant colors, and movement.
Someone once told me this little piece of advice, "Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life." I now fully understand this quote. Photography has filled me with joy and made my job FUN!
I'm so grateful you found me and would be honored to be your photographer. Send me a message and let's chat!
A snapshot into my life

We LOVE working with Kalyn and absolutely loved our photo experience! We are huge fans! We used the photos for our Christmas card for the second year in a row and got so many compliments. She makes us look good!

I can’t say enough good things about Kalyn and the quality and quantity she provides. Working with Kalyn is worth every penny. She does a pre call phone session and takes detailed notes about you so that you feel comfortable and relaxed in her presence, it's as if we all really knew each other! She goes over outfits, location, and other details ahead of time, which I truly appreciate. I will definitely be booking Kalyn again!

Kalyn did a fantastic job on our newborn photos!! Scheduling with a new baby is never easy and when we needed to reschedule, she was super flexible. Kalyn is professional, friendly, and a true baby whisperer! She made us feel so relaxed and at ease and easily captured such beautiful shots of our new family of 3! Can't recommend her enough. She's also super responsive and even made herself available before the shoot to help me with outfit ideas too!

We did our maternity session with Kalyn and she was so easy to work with. Her price is very reasonable and she was incredibly accommodating. Most important of all, the photos turned out to be gorgeous!!! They are simple, classy, and just simply so beautiful. We couldn't be happier and we just booked the newborn and grow with me package.

Working with Kalyn was an absolute dream! We had our Christmas pictures taken with our 4 month old daughter. I was nervous how our daughter would be and if we would even get any good pictures but Kalyn has a great eye and captured such beautiful pictures. She is so sweet and understanding. The session was so fun and we couldn't have asked for it to go any smoother. We've found our family photographer!

We had a fantastic family photoshoot with Kalyn. She was lovely to work with, made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and was efficient - much appreciated with an infant! She provided us with a great variety of gorgeous family photos, and we are still receiving compliments on them!

Kalyn was amazing to work with. She is so calm, kind and genuinely caring! We did newborn photos during the pandemic outside and she was super accommodating so we could still capture this precious time. Her photography is beautiful, and I’m so thankful for the gorgeous photos we will cherish forever.

Where to even start?! Kalyn is a true professional and an amazing photographer. I truly cannot think of a more kind and caring person. She was extremely easy to work with, her communication was timely and open, she answered all my questions and really guided me on how to bring my vision to life. She created a shot list, Pinterest board, helped design my outfits, researched and scheduled the location, and even brought some of her own props and clothing for me to use! Since I had the branding photo shoot done my instagram, website, and sales page have enhanced 10x! They have taken off...and I truly know her photos have been one of the sole reasons behind this! They look SO professional and really speak to what my clients are attracted to! If you are looking for someone to make your brand vision come to life.. Kalyn is hands down the best choice!
