SPOTLIGHT: Kayla Gaddy

Welcome to SPOTLIGHT! Each Tuesday I’ll be posting a quick interview with an awesome person you need to know. This week my friend, photographer Kayla Gaddy, swings by to answer some questions.


1. For those who don’t know, can you tell us a bit about who you are and what you do?

I am 27, a mother of two. Two of the greatest blessings I have ever been blessed with. I work in retail. I really love customer service. I love helping people feel good about themselves. I love photography. I get to do what I love while giving someone the gift of a memory that can be kept forever. I love my family. And my friends. They are my world. I try to be the best person I can be, and strive to be better every day.

2. Why do you do what you do?

The fact that life changes every day. We change every day as people. The world is big. It’s beautiful. And though things change in our every day lives, what I capture on my camera for someone can be kept forever. The memory will never change. And for me, that’s one of the biggest blessings. To have something you can hold on to forever no matter what.

3. What inspires you from day to day?

My babies. They amaze me. The beauty in every day. And my family. Their strength and love inspires me to be the best I can be.

4. Can you describe your process for us?

I usually offer 30 minute to hour sessions and weddings/engagements etc. I’ve joined a website called pixieset. It allows me to upload the images and gives the client the options to download their images straight from their laptop or computer. I also offer cds as well if they are interested.

5. How has that process changed over the years?

I’ve learned so much. My new Nikon D7200 has given me the chance to learn more about the lens’ and more about the controls. I went from shooting random family photos, and portraits to shooting mini sessions, and even weddings now!

6. Where can people go to find more about you?

Well, I have a Photography page called Southern Rustic Charm. And all of what I post on there, is on my personal page as well.
