Hi, I'm Kyra.
I’m American but I have lived in six different countries and traveled to over thirty. The first time I moved was when I was five, to Senegal in West Africa. Down the line, my high school graduation was at the foot of the Giza pyramids. Seemed pretty normal at the time, but now I think – hey, that’s cool!
My English husband and I met onstage, acting in a play in Singapore (we played husband and wife). We have a son Jack Anthony and a daughter Phoebe Delilah. Jack is a super sweet, highly opinionated toddler with a profound love for buses and Phoebe is just a wee babe, whose smiles are frequent and euphoric. I am also a stepmom to two great kids, Maggie and Fred.
I have a BA in Theatre and Visual Art and a Masters in Teaching from Southern Oregon University. Fun fact: for a long while I was a secondary school drama teacher, first in Portland, Oregon, then in Nicaragua and then Singapore.
My friends and family are spread across the globe, but through photography, I have found a way to keep everyone I love with me at all times.
In my life, and in my photography, I am drawn to quiet, thoughtful, tender moments. I am energized by comedy and outrageous levels of silliness. I have a lust for travel and experiencing new places that is only surpassed by my love for being at home. I have lived a diverse life but my interests remain simple; I’m into hot coffee, hot weather, ceramic mugs, yoga, arts & crafts, home décor, garage sales, Baz Luhrman everything, home movies, the California coast, wind chimes, red wine, musicals, scarves, flip flops and getting absorbed in a TV series with my main squeeze.
I have been told I’m very calming.
