Hi, I'm Kayla.

 I'm a photographer and art director. When I'm not in Memphis pursuing my degree, I can be found in the mountains of Crossville, Tennessee. 

 I strive to interact with others, create conversations and connections. I believe that magic exists in the smallest of things — in nature, in people, in oneself. I want to use my artwork to encourage and empower others.
