hello! i'm kaley.

i'm so happy you ended up here.

making photographs is what i was meant to do - it's a life i am so thankful for. 

my inspiration stems from human interaction, simplistic living, family heirlooms, life's oddities, minimalism, earth tones, backyard gatherings, hands, local makers, artists + dreamers, foggy days, travel, motherhood, natural light, movement, symmetry, nostalgia, windblown hair, imperfections, the desert and the color white.

i find beauty in the mundane, i find wonder, whimsy and honesty from the life you are living and all that surrounds you.

fun fact: you may notice a lot of hands in my portfolio. i feel as though hands (along with eyes) are so expressive and i tend to gravitate towards them.

this is a collaboration.

i want to document your biggest day, your every day, the day you feel the most beautiful, the most alive, the most maternal, the most thankful.

the details which are often overlooked - a vintage armoire, the remanence after a family breakfast, the trimming of flowers, window sills, reflections, all of it. i document what makes my subject who they are--what they like to do, what they like to read, grow & make.

every story is special,

every story is original.

i believe in living your best life with the ones you love most.

who do you love?

let's celebrate it.
