Hi! I'm Kalena. I'm a portrait photographer based in Kansas City, Missouri who specializes in natural light, outdoor photography. If you're looking for a photographer to take your family photos, maternity photos, or senior photos, I'm your gal! I'm located in KC but I also frequently travel to surrounding areas for photo shoots. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
The first step starts when you fill out the contact form here on my website or send me a message on social media. I will send you an email and we will pick out a date and location for your photo shoot. If you need help picking out a location, I can send you a free location guide for all the best spots in Tucson and beyond. One thing to keep in mind is that I schedule all portrait sessions to start about an hour before sunset for the best golden hour lighting.
After we decide on a location and date, I will email you a contract and invoice for the 50% non-refundable retainer. Once the contract is signed and the invoice is paid, your date will be officially locked into my calendar and we will be all set! I will be available to assist you with wardrobe selections and answer any outfit questions. If you ever have any questions or need to reschedule your session, just send me an email and I'll respond promptly.
On the day of your portrait session, we will meet at the location and I'll guide you through the whole photo shoot. My photography style relies on prompts to give movement and authentic, candid moments to your photos. If you need help posing or knowing where to put your hands, I will be there to help you out. After your session, I will work on editing your full gallery. Once the photos are finished, you'll receive an email with a link to an online gallery where you can view and download all your photos with a print release.

I would first like to say that she is such a kind person and has a beautiful personality. She made my boyfriend and I feel comfortable during our shoot and guided us the whole way. When we were uncertain how to pose she would tell us how to. It was such a fun experience. Let’s not forget how AMAZING my pictures came out. She captured the beautiful sunset in our pictures and the happiness me and my boyfriend felt. I’m absolutely in love with my maternity pictures.
Kalena did an amazing job on our family session. We absolutely LOVE our gallery and will definitely be reaching out in the future when we are in need of a photographer. She was very professional and made the process very easy.
Kalena did an amazing job with my daughter's photos!! Every single shot was beautiful and captured my daughter's personality. Kalena was professional, sweet, and so much fun to work with. We will be using her again for some family photos!!
We had photos done with our 3 month old daughter. Kalena did a wonderful job creating beautiful family photos with a baby that was not very cooperative. Her use of the space and natural environment in the photos is just beautiful. She is a talented photographer.
"Kalena has always been very responsive with any messages. She has such a kind soul with a great eye to get the perfect lighting. She did our fall family pictures which turned into proposal pictures. Her pricing is great and affordable as well! We will definitely be having her take more pictures for us in the near future!"
Kalena has an amazing eye for photos. The shots she took of my kids are some of my favorite professional photos that we’ve ever had taken of them! She was kind and patient when my kids were being crazy (and when it started raining during our shoot). I highly recommend her for any photography needs!
We had our holiday photos taken by Kalena Photography. It was a seamless process—the photos were excellent and delivered in no time! I was so incredibly pleased with the quality and experience, we’ll definitely use Kalena Photography again.
"Cannot be more pleased with how our engagement pictures turned out! My fiancé and I tend to be a little more on the awkward side and she made us feel super comfortable and gave us lots of good direction on how to pose. She captures great candid moments and even let us incorporate our dog into a lot of the pictures!"
