“Having Kaley take our photographs was one of the most special gifts I’ve ever received. She captured the depth of my love for my son and our unique relationship in a way I didn’t realize was possible. She has a way of disappearing into your landscape so that you are able to just be yourselves as she works, and because of that, her work is so authentic. She doesn’t create a fairytale that you can’t relate to, there is a certain grittiness that I love. She is not afraid of the mess. She captures an honest and pure tenderness— it’s as if those still moments come alive. They evoke so much emotion when I look back at them. She is a master of detail— a father brushing away a golden curl from his daughter’s eyes, tiny arms wrapped around the back of a mother’s neck— little things that you don’t realize are important until you see the image and think, “wow, I don’t ever want to forget what it felt like when he held onto me that way.”

“When I first saw the images Kaley created, I was immediately overcome with gratitude. I was in such a fog, raising my three babies, that I didn’t feel like I could grasp those moments, and that they were fleeting. You were able to grasp them for me. You gave me the gift of seeing the beautiful life I’d been given through photographs. I look back, and though I felt like I was drowning at the time, what I see now is a brave mama who kept going, kept thriving. You helped me see that, and I’m forever thankful for you.”

Kaley has such an ease and comfort about her that disarms any awkwardness of having your photos taken. She captured so much love in each frame. I can’t wait to look back on these photographs when I’m old and gray, and smile. I will forever cherish them.”
