About Kendra

 

I am a stay-at-home mother who spends the majority of my time chasing my adorable children. My family is the greatest thing in my life! I am also very passionate about my faith, animals, reading, and chocolate milk. Another thing I like that seems to surprise people is rock music. Sometimes a mom has to have something to help her keep some sanity when she spends the majority of her time with children under 4.

My love for pictures started when I was very young. My mother always had her camera out and was filming us or taking our pictures. This was back in the 90's, so cameras weren't the easiest things to tote around like they are today. My siblings and I still love to sit around and watch family videos at holidays, or flip through our photo albums and laugh at how high our mother fluffed our bangs. 

I attended school at Utah Valley University and graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Digital Media, with a Cinema Production emphasis. I love to use my film degree in my photography and my videos, and look forward to giving you images that your family look through in 20 years and reminisce about fun memories, or the silly fads of the day.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
— Dr. Seuss

This is one of my favorite quotes. Time is fleeting, and things are always changing. I started photography to preserve the memories of NOW before they are gone. Pictures and videos are very important to me, and I am constantly doing them for my own family so I can always remember how we have grown. My daughter has a silly laugh we call her 'Frenchman Laugh', and she will squish her cheeks when we would ask her where they are. My little man is growing quickly and is no longer a little baby. I try to capture their journey and always want to remember their little quirks. Even if the only time I get to talk about them is to embarrass my kids as teenagers at Thanksgiving.                             

 

 

I have had my images featured on the Summerana Photoshop Actions for Photographers Weekly Top 10 blog twice in 2018. You can see the blog posts below.

My images have also placed as Finalists in the annual Shoot and Share contest two years in a row. That means they made it to the top 3% of over 400,000 images submitted by thousands of photographers!
