Working with Makala is always a fun time! She truly cares about her clients and takes the time to get to know them and is beyond genuine! The sessions always fly by because working with her is so fun and easy. Also, she has ADORABLE pieces you can wear for your session in her client wardrobe. How cool is that?! You will not be disappointed when booking with Makala!!

Hands down the best photographer we’ve ever worked with! Makala is such an artist and we wouldn’t want anyone else capturing our special moments! Not only is her work beautiful she has such a kind and sweet spirit!

Where do I even begin?! Makala is creative, spontaneous, patient, professional and flexible! From maternity pictures to newborn pictures, Makala made sure we have photographs that show what our family is all about. Her prices are fair and her love for what she does shines through! We are so thankful!

Hi! I’m Hali and my husband & I just had a maternity shoot in March 2020.

I’m the type of person that isn’t super knowledgeable or comfortable in front of the camera so when I was looking for a maternity photog, I wanted someone who not only was talented, but who would take a stranger and make them feel comfortable no matter what, especially being 8 months pregnant. Makala was definitely just that! She makes you feel so comfortable by physically helping with positions and was such a hype-man talking us up, taking away any awkwardness of being in front of a camera, and made me, personally, feel much more confident - It was just easy!

Prior to booking Makala, I had looked through her photos & fell in love with her style and talent instantly! I even sent her profile to my sister and we both just drooled over her work😍 After barely talking with her about what my husband and I were sort of looking for in a shoot, she sent me some inspo pictures that fit everything we talked about; I knew she actually listened and understood her clients instead of forcing a one style type of thing onto us - thank you thank you thank you!

1000000% recommend, seriously! I can’t wait for her to photograph my family in the near future!
