I am absolutely thrilled about the prospect of being chosen to document your special moments.
At Sharla Kay Photography, I understand that selecting a photographer is more than hiring someone with a camera; it's about building a connection, creating memories, and hopefully, becoming a friend along the way.
I'm excited to give you a little tour so you can learn more about me - the process of working together -
and my collections!

 I am looking forward to the opportunity to document your special moments, creating a bond through photography in the beautiful surroundings of Waco, Texas. Let's begin this journey together!

Hi Friend! I'm Sharla!

I'm so excited to "meet" you! =) 
I'm Sharla - Aka The Baby Whisperer!  

As a mother, I get to experience first-hand my kids’ ever-changing features, blossoming personalities, and the beauty in their infinite expressions. I’m amazed at how quickly these little people change and grow, and I’m so grateful to be able to capture as many of these moments as possible.

Their infancy stages now seem like a very distant memory even though it really wasn’t that long ago. As I look back at their newborn photo sessions, I’ve come to the realization that these portraits are even more special to me than I could have imagined.

My children taught me the most important lesson about photography:
The value of a meaningful and beautiful image of your child grows exponentially over time. It never stops. It’s a moment that’s gone, but a memory that you get to keep forever.

This is exactly what I hope to give each of my clients. I want you to be able to hold onto tiny glimpses of your children growing up. It’s these seemingly ordinary instances that will ultimately become some of your most treasured memories.

A breakdown of sessions:
A newborn session is an in studio session. I currently schedule newborn sessions Monday - Friday from 10am-1pm. While newborn sessions don't always last the full 3 hours allotted, sometimes little ones need more time to settle in to a nice deep sleep.

Family, milestone, and maternity sessions take place at a location that you and I agree upon prior to your session. These sessions are usually 45 minutes to an hour long, and the ideal time to do this type of session is the last hour and a half of sunlight. (studio session allow more flexibility) 

While I am happy to offer my clients sessions that do include digital images, it is my hope that you will print your photos as well. Seeing my clients portraits hanging on their walls, as preserved memories makes me so happy. I use professional print labs and can stand behind their quality and colors, and would love to work with you to come up with beautiful portraits that you can enjoy for years to come in your home.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about scheduling a session.


My business isn't about pictures, it's about people. It's not about saying cheese, it's about catching your personality. It's not about transactions, it's about relationships. And it's not about one day, it's about a lifetime. I can't wait to connect with you and tell your story.
