I am a specialist in capturing you, as your truest self, in your safest space.


Hey hi,

I’m Kaihla Tonai



Life feels at its fullest when we are given the unrestricted, whole-hearted permission to be ourselves. Over the course of the last decade, I’ve learned first hand how disheartening it can be to not be given the space to be who we truly know ourselves to be. This realization has since been the very foundation of my business.

I am an educator and a freelance photographer specializing in elopements and couples.

I believe that by giving my couples the honest space to feel comfortable with yourselves and the relationship that you share, is the only way to capture still images that truly emote the safe dwelling space that you both have found within the arms of one another. 


a completely FREE educational email series with the intention of shaking loose from the limiting business beliefs and giving you the space to strengthen your roots in a healthy and sustainable way.

Over the course of the coming weeks, I’d like to share with you my honest and unfiltered thoughts on some widely apparent and limiting business beliefs that are constantly showing up in our lives and business that lead us to believe that we are not enough. 

It’s tempting right?
This idea of needing more.
Being more.
Making more.

It’s easy to get so caught up in having more; but what if I told you that what is right in front of you is already enough. 
Who you are is enough.

If you have one client, or ten clients, or one hundred clients, that is enough. 
You don’t need more, you simply need to learn how to show up in an honest and heartfelt way to those who are already here supporting and encouraging you. 

“More” is a never ending mental mindset of never being enough, and the harsh truth is that it’s a mindset that you will never be able to catch up to or outrun.
