meeT Makayla

Owner/Lead Photographer

"Hello friend! I'm Makayla; owner of Makayla Madden Photography! 

I'm 26 years old, a 5' nothing hippy at heart who loves yoga & gardening & the Lord. If you're familiar with the enneagram I'm an enneagram 8, & am often told I'm intimidating & too passionate- but I promise I'm a total dork & goofball! I've been married for 6 years to my high school sweetheart, and am incredibly excited to say our first baby is on the way!

While I've been shooting for over a decade and knew I wanted to be a photographer since I was 2 years old, in 2015 I took the leap and went full time with photography. The past 7 years have been a dream as I've been able to watch this business grow- now with several team members and associate shooters- and that I've been able to live out my dream doing what I always wanted to do- loving on people and empowering them through photography.

Regardless of who you work with on my team, rest assured that you will only ever receive the best of the best care. We can't wait to meet you!


meet kim

Family Associate Photographer

"Hi, I'm Kim! I'm Makayla's Associate Family photographer, and so glad to be part of her team! In my spare time you can find me getting lost in a bookstore or sitting in a coffee shop sipping a half-sweet, no whip mocha.  I’m a huge fan of Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and Gillian Flynn, but I’ll read just about any book you put in front of me. I love escaping into someone else’s story for a couple of hours. I love road trips to beautiful places, and they’ve taken me to places such as the Grand Tetons, the Outer Banks, and Nova Scotia, just to name a few!" 


It is with a heavy heart I announce the passing of my dear friend Kim on 12/29/22. I was so honored to have her part of my team. 
You can still inquire about family sessions with Makayla. 

meet Addie

Boudoir & Wedding Associate photographer

"Hi, I’m Addie! I’ve been a photographer for 8 years & have been specializing in weddings & portraits for most of that. When I’m not professionally third-wheeling, or scheduling hair & makeup appointments for clients, I’m either heading to the movies, finding the best boba spot in Boise, or hopping on a plane to explore somewhere new! I have a fish named Lazlo Alonzo Alfonso & almost constantly have music playing near me.

I’m SO excited to join the MMP team! Since going back to school in August 2019, after a few gap years my schedule & business have looked a bit different. Being part of Makayla Madden Photography allows me to still have all the fun photography & client interaction I love so much, while letting Makayla take over all the editing & backend parts. If you have any questions at all (celeb crush, fave musical artist, etc) let me know. ;)

Hope to meet you soon!"
