y journey as a professional creative has undergone many transformations, but after 10 years I have found my sweet spot when I opened the doors to Kara Layne  

& Co - a branding, design and photography studio. A place where small businesses can get exactly what they have been looking for. Working as a brand stylist, helping fellow business owners build their brand identity and online presence as well as create a first impression that is unforgettable is something I don’t see myself tiring of anytime soon. 

Working with big companies over the years as a commercial photographer as well as time spent as a visual director, I have brought that expertise, processes and attention to detail to my clients I have the opportunity to work with and the results are amazing to witness. There is something about creating something out of nothing that is so exciting. To take a client’s vision or idea and build a visual identity out of it, to tell a brand’s story through intentional design and beautiful imagery? The process, the collaborations, the passion… it’s magic.

Outside of everything I do at Kara Layne & Co, I am also a content creator and blogger (you can visit Haus of Layne here to get a look into my other passion). I am the wife to a bearded gentleman who also happens to be an entrepreneur and the mother of five to the most amazing and beautiful kids you’ll ever meet.

I feel deeply and laugh heartily. I believe that life is too short to play it small and I also believe in dessert before dinner. I like my mornings late and my evenings cozy. I wish somebody would bottle up the smell of a rainstorm in the desert because it puts my soul at ease every time I smell it. 

Whether we have the opportunity to work together or not, the one thing I hope for is that you feel inspired while in this space. And I hope that we have the opportunity to connect soon!
