behind the lens
Hi friend, I'm Kendra!
I'm a photographer, wife, mama, artist, minimalist-in-progress, lover of coffee + brunch, an expert toddler wrangler, and a 20-something just trying to juggle it all.
By day I pick up messes, take photos, brew another coffee, and do another load of laundry.
By night I edit photos and dream bigger dreams and write about my life here.
I've been married to my wonderful husband since 2013 and I've had the privilege and blessing of being a mom since 2016.
Behind The Lens
I am probably best known for my a fresh and creative perspective and my sunny-yet-very-introverted personality. I love serving the world by creating meaningful art, telling people's stories in an authentic way, and spreading joy around!
Most days you can find me at home with coffee and a good book, listening to podcasts while folding laundry, hugging my 4 month old son, or chasing my 2 year old around the house and yard.
I am passionate about helping women love themselves, inside and out. I enjoy traveling and experiencing other cultures, MOPS (mothers of pre-schoolers), cooking and enjoying good food, all things Joanna Gaines, shopping in Target alone, and encouraging myself and others to keep pursuing their biggest dreams.
My Style + Vision
I serve people who are looking for personal, lifestyle portraits that are as unique and precious as they are. I am lucky to remind them how valuable and loved they are as individuals.
My photographic style is often described as emotional, authentic, detailed, and oh-so-real. I dig candid moments: kids jumping on the couch, super-sloppy dog kisses, tears of joy on wedding days, and spontaneous tickle-fests. I love to create heart-warming imagery that people truly treasure because it speaks to who they are.
My editing style is deep, warm, and film-inspired. I also love dramatic black and white images. Sometimes I will break out a film camera if the moment calls for it. I’m in the process of creating lightroom presets for easy editing, and they’ll be in my shop coming November 2018!
A few things I love
If you're dying to get to know me more, here's 5 things you may not know about me:
My husband and I met on Facebook, and we have a super crazy engagement story. Please ask for details, it’s a good one!
I love all things Joanna Gaines. She's one of my favorite #girlbosses and I love seeing how she has balanced her multiple businesses with being a wonderful mom and wife. Watching Fixer Upper is definitely one of my "soul-food" items and fuels my creativity.
I binge listen to podcasts all the time, and should probably write a blog post with my favorites soon.
Coffee, mmm… yes. I take my coffee in the form of a good latte. I do like some flavor, but not all the sweetness! Brown-sugar clove lattes are my current favorite.
Breakfast + brunch are my absolute favorite meals. When we go out for dinner, if there is breakfast on the menu, odds are I will be ordering it.
