You've come to the right place & I am so glad that you are here!

documenting your story

a creative + timeless APPROACH to

Magic is all around us, and I am the Sherlock Holmes of photography, looking for those moments to capture at the click of the camera. Everywhere I look no matter at home or driving down the road I can find the magic in them and it's my job to do the same with your memories too. 





Specializing in

I have always been inspired by the little moments which lead me to photography. I love to find the magic in each story and document in a way that freezes time.

You'll find me daydreaming up new ideas, celebrating Christmas and Halloween all year, swimming in any body of water, cuddled up with Alex and our pup Fenrir, listening to the birds, gardening, racing in Mario Kart, at the library or watching British Bake Off for the millionth time. 


HI! I'M Kya liann A empath + adventure seeking Michigander READY TO document YOUR MOMENTS

Kya Liann

so excited to meet you!

The prompts are so fun and Kya’s personality makes the experience even more fun! 

My fiancé and I didn’t know what to expect, but we were blown away by the super fun and natural approach she takes. If you’re looking for a photographer that won’t make posing awkward, look no further.

Kya is such an awesome and bubbly person.

She is very easy to work with as well! I’ve been following her work on Instagram for a while and I’m thankful for the special photos that she captured of my fiancé and I with our animal babies.

Jennifer + Robby

Not only did Kya Liann fly thousands of miles to shoot my wedding, she was the best photographer for the big day. 

She was intuitive, efficient, and incredibly creative. I am overwhelmed with her attention to detail and her ability to capture such a momentous day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, our wedding would not have been the same without you.

Jessie + Kalama

She even was SO KIND as to bring a bottle of water for our dogs who were hiking with us for pictures.

She made the little things count and provided countless laughs which were beautifully portrayed in our photos. I highly recommend Kya as a photographer, whatever you’re envisioning, she’s on it! She possesses such a talent and truly has her clients best interests and visions in mind. We’re so grateful to her for making our engagement session dreams come true!
