I arrive with the understanding that I have accepted the responsibility and privilege to photograph a last hug, a first kiss, infants becoming toddlers, high-schoolers becoming college students, your child entering the world, walking down the aisle towards the love of your life, and every beautiful, difficult, emotional, and heartfelt moment in-between.

I do not just show up with my equipment and a job description.

serving wny and beyond

I am an unapologetically outgoing individual...
I have 2 children (1 son and 1 daughter) that have stolen my heart, after their dad did of coarse! Having my children took my business from a part-time side gig to a full-time vacation! They say when you love what you do you never work a day in your life so...vacation! It brought me to the realization of just how quickly life passes and how much I love being able to look back and relive their tiny moments. It encouraged me to prioritize the importance of memories in my business.
I find that my biggest joy about being a photographer is being invited to share some of your most intimate and special moments...

Meet Kayleigh

Photographer, mother, friends aficionado

kristi - bride

Kayleigh was absolutely the best vendor at my wedding! We got married on 9/26/20 (yes during the pandemic). She was easy to get ahold of, very responsive, patient, and accommodating as we re-planned our wedding TWICE! She ran around Buffalo with us as we wanted many different kinds of photos for our engagement shoot. She picked the most beautiful locations for photos the day of our wedding and they came out fantastic! 10/10 recommend for any occasion! I can't thank Kayleigh enough for being so great! Even some of our guests commented on how kind our photographer was as she was walking around after dinner asking guests to take photos!

"Kayleigh was absolutely the best vendor at my wedding!"

Kay was with us for the long hall on the day of our wedding and she couldn't have been more of a delight! She captured photos in sweet, artistic and fun ways! We could not have asked for a better person to spend our day with, nor a better photographer. She caught every moment and even was sure to get the ones we didn't think of !! Thank you Kay!!!

Kayleigh was so great to work with! She was available for us on short notice and she was early to the shoot. She made our pictures we took in the pouring rain look flawless! Would recommend to anyone 10/10
