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 from family portraits to headshots, as well as more intimate portrait photography like Boudoir. I work with my clients to design a photoshoot that represents them and then together we create beautiful heirlooms to keep forever 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. I invite you to a complimentary consultation to design a photoshoot just for you.

Portrait sessions.


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.

Little ones

I believe in showing women their beauty and showing them that they are worthy of being seen. That does not stop at little women. From the age of about 8 years old, we start to have self doubt and look at ourselves differently. I love being able to fight against that by showing our young ones that they are so beautiful & unique just as they are. Embrace the freckles & the braces!


Family portraits are really some of the most important sessions you can think of. If we didn't take photographs with our families, what would future generations pass down? These timeless portraits are important for keeping your legacy alive. Give your great, great grandchildren something to love later in time.


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 see, 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!).”
