Hi there!

My name is Kayla McDaniel. I am a wife, mom of four, and a portrait photographer based out of Riverside, California. I offer all types of portrait sessions, but I specifically love women's portraiture. I love photographing women through the most important times in their lives. Whether it be pregnancy, marriage, motherhood, or even just to capture a moment in time when they need help finding who they are. I work with my clients to design a photoshoot that represents them and then together we create beautiful heirlooms to keep and hand down to future generations. I would love to have the opportunity to create a beautiful portrait for you & your family. I promise it will be a photograph you will continue to love throughout the years.

Portrait sessions I offer.


Maternity is one of my favorite types of portrait sessions. It is always so beautiful to capture the glow of a pregnant mother. Pregnancy is such a beautiful time in a persons life. It should be captured as so. Your little one in your belly will thank you for capturing this time.


Motherhood is such a beautiful (and messy) experience. I love being able to capture a mother and her children. Moments of joy and laughter. The little moments filled with cuddles. I've had ladies bring their kiddos for a beauty portrait session or bring their newborns for a breastfeeding photoshoot.


During your beauty portrait session, you will experience a day of beauty. I love creating beautiful photoshoots for women that bring out their personality. This session is designed for you, to show your femininity and beauty. Just imagine these beautiful images being passed down to future generations. Your great, great grandchildren will love them.


I LOVE boudoir and all that is stands for. I believe every woman is beautiful and worthy of being seen in whichever way she wants to be seen, especially moms. These beautiful everyday women who sometimes forget themselves, deserve to feel empowered in their own skin

“Working with Kayla was so easy! She offered an in-home session, which was such a great way to capture memories in our newly purchased house and made my husband and me feel even more comfortable. All of her suggestions fit our style and vision of the family photos we wanted and we had fun in the process! She was receptive to our ideas and incorporated different poses along with candid photos throughout the session (and made sure to include our dog!).”
