For families who just want to be themselves

See My Work

I get it. The idea of getting your family ready for a photoshoot feels overwhelming! That's why I keep our sessions fun, relaxed and easy.

I’ll guide you so you know just what to do, and I’ll keep your kids involved and excited and playing.

You get to enjoy the session, and receive a gallery of photos that show off your family happy, love-filled and just having fun.

"I loved every second of working with Lyla! Not only are her photos stunning, but she is completely supportive throughout the entire process - from helping style outfits to cultivating a calm and fun atmosphere for the photos themselves."

"Her photos are gorgeous and they truly capture the spirit of joy and humor we were feeling... it's such a gift to have pictures of us being sweet and silly with each other."

An artist at heart, bringing a fresh perspective to your family photos


As your local Philadelphia family photographer, I'm not here to get the photos that JCPenny can take. I'm here to create family heirlooms, to make art out of your love for each other. I grew up in Elkins Park, went to art school at Tyler (when it was back at the EP campus as well as after the move to North Philly), and have an affinity for all the local spots that Philly and Montgomery County have to offer. Whether you're looking for a sunset family photoshoot in the rolling hills of Wissahickon Valley, a couples photoshoot in romantic Curtis Arboretum, or newborn photos in the comfort of your own home, I'm here and ready to make some magic.
