My Free




Yes, you read that right.

I’ve created a coloured Lightroom preset that I use on the majority of my work, and I want to give you free access to being able to use it too.


The Listening 

—a podcast for those who riot through their quiet

Through the Listening, I ache to prove that there is a space for you to show up, as the big wonderful quiet mess that you are, and that you don’t need to alter what you have to offer in order to make a difference in all that you do.


Hey hi,

I’m Kaihla Tonai



I’ve resisted being myself for a very long time—in life, as well as business—because I didn’t feel as though it could ever be enough. Comparison, fear of failure, and a missing practice of gratitude held my own potential at bay.

After more than six years as a self-employed creative entrepreneur, I know that I’ve made a lot of mistakes.

But if those mistakes taught me one very important thing, it’s that you don’t need to alter what you have to offer in order to make a difference in all that you do.

Opportunities for Creatives

From online learning to in-person gatherings, there are so many learning opportunities to come. I’m still working on my 2019 workshop guide and additional offerings, but in the mean time, come and explore my latest blog posts, snoop around my freebies, or sign up for workshop and mentoring updates.
