Welcome to the KSP blog, a place where I share my work, wisdom, and a peek into my everyday life. I'm so glad you're here and hope you stay awhile!

Hi! I'm Kyla.

Liz and Tim’s Crane Beach summer engagement session filled my heart right up to the brim. They exude the kind of warmth and joy that leaves you feeling so encouraged from the moment you meet them. I met Liz virtually earlier this year and loved her right away, but this was my first time meeting Tim. He made the best first impression that a groom could make, waving excitedly with the biggest smile. He was grateful to be there and eager to make the most of their session. To make it even better, Liz and Tim have common bonds with two KSP couples. They are neighbors with Mary and Matt (stay tuned for their session so soon!) and Liz attended the same college as Kayla and Brian (go Stags!).

Their relationship is made stronger by the meaningful connections they have built with those around them and the roots they share. The roots of their love story are deep, going all the way back to high school. Tim was working an ordinary shift at work one day, putting in hours at his high school job. Until in walked Liz Avery – and his life was changed forever. They went away to college and grew individually for a bit, but their connection was undeniable. Over the years they always found their way back to each other.

Liz and Tim’s love story has the gift of time that so many people wish for. They will get to look back one day and remember the way they grew alongside each other from the earliest days. They’ll remember cheering each other on as they started their careers, selflessly served their community (she as a nurse and he as a police officer!), enrolled in grad school, and bought their first home. Someday, they’ll have photo albums filled with memories from traveling the world together, accomplishing the things that matter most to them, and sharing a life well-lived.

To Liz and Tim

You two are such a gift to me! And your engagement session was so good for my heart. I will never forget how thoughtful you are. You chose to speak encouragement over my dreams when I asked you about your own. Your love story is sweet as can be. I’m so grateful that I get to cheer you on through the next seasons of it! Soak up every bit of your engagement and continue to make the sweetest memories together. These days are ones that you will cherish forever! I cannot wait to celebrate your wedding day together next year and document every bit of that joy for the legacy you are building together.
