Hi.

My name is Kaylinn.

I was raised on a ranch in Colorado and now my home is in Atlanta. I’m a little bit  country, and I hope, a little bit rock and roll. My country upbringing made me understand the importance of community and trained me to be a fantastic problem solver. When you’re 60 miles from resources, you learn how to plan and how to get yourself out of a bind. Atlanta has given me the opportunity to learn from some of the best and then connected me to communities that have become, crew, clients, and often friends.  


I’m interested in editorial work that explores contrasts, family dynamics and the pull of roots. I love working with companies highlighting their product or service through the people doing the work or the story that brought it to be. I also specialize in people that hate getting their photo taken if what you seek is a corporate portrait. If any of these fit the bill or you just need help finding the story, I’d love to talk about it. 


My personal projects are my own struggle to understand and be understood. Right now that means working on a project on  family and roots, which I’m calling Digging up Roots and two ongoing projects:  Odd Couples and 18:An American Survey. You can see these projects and my  process on IG.  


Education:
