Hello. I am Kayla, a Toronto-based photographer inspired by travel and cultural immersion, evocative faces and thoughtful design. Combining my naturalistic sensibilities with a keen eye for portraiture, I am passionate about producing images that are infused with the narratives of the subjects I capture.
From commissioned portraits of Hollywood’s A List to documentary photographs of Canada’s Syrian refugees and design shots from international hotels, I create work that is full of light and laden with storytelling.
My subject matter and photographic disciplines encompass:
People (portraits and lifestyle), events (galas, weddings, festivals), travel (landscapes, citizens, lifestyle) and hotels and restaurants (interiors & exteriors).
Professional Experience: My clients include The Hollywood Reporter, Swarovski, Toronto Life Magazine, Soho House Toronto, The Drake Hotel, Kit &Ace, The Brief, The Kit Magazine, Rose & Sons restaurant group and more. A full client roster can be found here. From FASHION Magazine and the Globe and Mail to Vogue Netherlands, my images have been published locally and internationally.
My published images are listed here, as is my own featured press, awards and nominations. My style of shooting can be described as raw, truthful and candid. I photograph subjects in their own environments and am passionate about capturing honest moments. My images are naturally lit, sun-soaked and vibrant in their colour stories and capture of contrast.
