Meet Kayla

kayla francis

Hello! I am the owner of Stella Ella Ola Photography as well CEO, CFO, Lead Photographer, Creative Director, Head Editor, Marketing Guru, Customer Service Manager and Mentor.

I opened my business up in 2015. As of December 2019, I have photographed over 600 babies and currently design and make in house all of my maternity dresses for my clients to use exclusively.

I have been blessed to be trained by some of the the best photographers around the world. I have over 6 years of training and hands on experience and education. Safety is my #1 concern during every session. I am always looking to try new things and grow. I do specialize in Maternity and Newborn Photography but I literally shoot everything in small doses that my calendar will allow so one day me and my team can be a one stop shop for all your photography and videography needs.

When I am not busy at work…

  • I’m a mom (to little Stella and 2 big labs)
  • An entrepreneur
  • Maternity dress designer
  • Outdoor enthusiast
  • Night owl
  • Animal lover
  • Creative dreamer
  • Chocolate and coffee addict

I’m a natural light Portrait Photographer with a special love for capturing life!

I wish I could say photography has always been my career, but after I had my daughter, I developed a desire to capture every moment and every detail about her. It was at that time that I found something inside of me I never knew was there. I went to Brock University and Mohawk Collage for Kinesiology and Recreation therapy. I worked in long term care until I decided to take my passion and turn it into a full time career.

Portraiture that is both emotive and storytelling in nature. I tend to shoot outdoors as close to the golden hour of sunset as we can. I love to find magical moments in unique locations. Making a connection in everyday life and capture them for people to treasure for a lifetime.

Our children are only children for such a short time – they seem to race from newborn to baby to toddler to child to young adult in a flash. I want to freeze that time for you and create beautiful lifestyle and portrait images for you, your children, and your family to treasure for years to come!

Most importantly, I LOVE MY JOB! I am humbled that my clients choose me to share their special moments! I adore each of my clients more than they know and it would be an honour to be part of your memories as well!
