Swimming together talking about the little fish swimming by.  Loud laughs and tickles on the couch. Tired cuddles. Bear hugs and peekaboo over your shoulder.

Your moments, memories, loved ones, and emotions are pieces of your life and story. It's not just a pretty photo to share on social media but a place that feels like home and reminds you of every part of your life and the seasons you were in. To document these moments is to preserve a piece of you and your loved ones so you can look back on them over time and remember what it felt like to be there, how it felt to hug your loved ones close and the parts of you that are irreplicable. 

When time has passed and loved ones aren't near, these are the moments and photos you will have to feel that warmth again.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.

Birth Story


($1525 value)

Maternity, Fresh 48 & Lifestyle Newborn


Documenting all the moments of birth with the arrival of your little one. We set a date for your Maternity session and then stay in communication to document within the first 48 hours of being born and then a few weeks later at home in your new life together as a family. 

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.

Renee + Spencer

Kya is the best photographer around! 

She makes every session super fun and enjoyable! She’s got great energy and knows how to get her clients to show genuine emotion and feel as comfortable as possible- she ROCKS!!!

Christina + Logan

We will forever use Kya for every special occasion, she is the best! 

Kya is amazing! She took our maternity and family photos, and each picture turned out absolutely perfect. She also makes every session we had with her super comfortable and fun!

Madison + Jacob

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!

Set the date
& planning here

It all starts with a discovery call

Let's grab a virtual drink and chat about who I am and who you are and your vision. One of the most important things is making sure we click and vibe with each other so it feels more like friends vs just a vendor.

You celebrate with your dream photos

Locking your date in my calendar to your questionnaire and guide to help with all the planning and feeling more at ease about your session leading up.

Documenting all of the magic the day of your session to all the behind the scenes editing I do and the teasers of your day to you getting an email that your full gallery is ready and the celebration begins.


I don't want to be another vendor; I want to be your friend with all the knowledge to help you have the best experience but can still laugh and fully be yourself. Storytelling is the art of letting you be fully present while I guide and give you the time to be fully embraced in the magic.



Process and how I work with you

Comfort is key! My major recommendation is to wear something clean and comfortable that makes you feel confident and badass but still allows you to move and be present in the moment. I have a free guide as well to help!


I do not photoshop but if you have a blemish that is temporary I can make that vanish, if it's not forever then I can do a little touch up. I do not give my RAW images. I will deliver you high resolution edited images that capture the moment and feeling of the day. This is where my magic happens.


I am located in Metro Detroit. I do travel within most of Michigan. When you inquire just make sure to mention where and I will let you know the total cost so everything is upfront and clear right away.

HOW MANY PHOTOS will I recieve?

All galleries are delivered with an online gallery and this is where you can download, favorite, save and share with loved ones. How many and how long depends on the session type and hours I am with you, I don't limit the amount of images, it could be anywhere from 6-8 weeks and from 60-200+ photos. If you are curious based on your session don't be afraid to ask! 


I require a 25% non-refundable retainer at the time of booking + signing your contract. The remaining payment is due 2 weeks from your session date. I accept online payments through Honeybook. Payment plans can be set up as well at no added cost. 

how does payment work?
Do you offer payment plans?

If you need to reschedule just let me know asap and we can figure out a new date that works for us both. If the weather is bad I am still up for it pending on severity. Living in Michigan means it can change so quick. But if we need to reschedule we will get in touch and talk about the next steps.

What if we need to reschedule? or if the weather is bad?
