Hi, Im Cayla! I am the go to maternity and empowerment photographer. I am a Fiancé, a Mama, a Sister, a Bonus Mama and an all round good time.
My biggest achievement in my life is giving birth to my second daughter via a VBAC. Since then, my whole vibe and vision has been to empower mamas to take control of their pregnancy and life.
MORE ABOUT ME
I live in Southland, New Zealand but I am originally from Western Australia, along the beautiful coast where we see the sun set over the ocean. I lived there for 30 years before packing up and coming to my favourite place in the world.
New Zealand, My new home. My forever home? We will see, only time will tell... Our plan is just to see where the road takes us and not put any pressure on ourselves.
My Fiancé John proposed to me in New Zealand by a beautiful waterfall on our way to Milford sound back in 2018... I am waiting patiently for our wedding to take place... *wink wink babe* ( I know he will read this hehe)
I have two gorgeous daughters Amara and Malia and one beautiful bonus daughter Niwareka.
Raising girls is bloody hard work, don't believe anyone who says other wise! The reward is worth it though, knowing our girls know the standard of love and kindness they should receive and not accepting anything less. Teaching them to test the boundaries, make mistakes, defend themselves, speak their mind, to be honest, kind, caring and loving to everyone.
but I wouldn't be against them holding off their attitude till they were older... that would be really nice for my sanity!
WHY AM I HERE
I am here for so many reasons, but all of them include the women and Mama's.
Time is precious and you have a story that deserves to be told. Whether its empowering you through your single boss b**** era, your pregnant and need some help showcasing how stunning you are or need some extra love and support, or you have just had your baby and you got tired eyes but a whole lot of love to show off, or you just want to update your family photographs because the kids are just growing up too quickly.
I want to be there for it all.
You deserve to be in the photographs, you deserve to have your story documented.
