I believe there is beauty in the chaos, in the snuggles, in the full-body laughs, and in the tears. I want to capture it all. Just as it is. You only have to love your people out loud.



Lexington KY Photographer

Families, maternity, newborn & seniors

We take our time for breaks, snuggles, and lots of play. Each session is unique and captures all that messy, beautiful, love.

Everything is meant to be relaxed, the polar opposite of what you may have come to expect when family pictures are on the agenda. Even when there’s a little bit of that magical chaos, we know that’s when we get the good stuff. Resulting in honest images that are full of life and tell YOUR beauty-filled story.

"I cannot say THANK YOU enough. I am so in love with these pictures..."

"I just wanted to...thank you for the incredible pictures. They really are amazing. I have to admit...that seeing your finished product made it all worth the while. Thank you.”

Professionally Printed


Your family’s love is a work of art to be surrounded by for generations to come. Celebrate your family with original art work, whether choosing framed wall galleries, large showpiece prints, or archival albums, you can be assured to come away with art you and your family will adore forever. Personally I love something to hold in my hands that tells the full story, like an album, and something to display my absolute favorites on my walls. 

"I love Priscilla so much. Her photos capture the beauty and love of each family. We have worked with her for years and I cannot express how great it has been to see my family grow through her photography."

I believe deeply in branding and commercial photography that tells a story and connects your gifts, your message, and your product to your people. The people who connect with you are going to be those who become your most loyal supporters. Your brand, your images, are going to set the tone for it all. My purpose is to be a mirror to your joy, your love, your passion, and your dream. To be your cheerleader as you bring your gifts to the world.

"Cilla elevates everyday moments into art!"

"I have lost track of how many sessions I have used her for, both personally and for my business. She has brought her incredible skills to projects that have spanned from my home and my studio, all the way to France and Italy (yes, I've had her travel with us---it's hard to settle for anyone else once you've seen the world through Cilla's amazing eyes!) Can't recommend her highly enough. She puts her whole heart in what she does and it shows! She's 10+ stars :-)"

your session is not about me.

Truly. I am only a mirror to the love you share in front of my camera. What I do is provide an open heart that saves space for your family to just be. To breathe it all in. No need for the perfectly posed hands. Just you and your loves and your passion.

We take our time. No rush.The pressure is off.

I find that the number one concern before a session is that the kiddos will be wild or won't sit still for pictures. Perfect! They don't have to. 

"that was much easier than I thought it would be!" 

...is the number one comment overheard (often from Dad's) at the end of a session. Everything is meant to be relaxed and easy-going, the polar opposite of what you may have come to expect.



Like what
you see?

Let me tell the story of the love you give.

If you’re looking for authentic, love-filled, often joyful images, but a well-organized and easy process, you’re in luck. Let’s chat and see if we are the perfect match!
