Hi there, I'm kennerly
I have these old black and white photographs of my parents from when they were in college. The photos are precious and priceless. I loved looking through them when I was a child and I still have copies of them today. Perhaps that's why I'm so drawn to black and white photographs and why want my clients to have them along with their images in color. Whether in black and white or in color, photographs should evoke emotion and memories. They document our journey through life with our loved ones.
I also loved (and still do) poring over old photo albums from when I was little. Seeing my parents so young, myself and my brother as babies, our dogs, the homes we lived in... I'm so grateful that my grandparents and parents were picture-takers. You know the ones who you would roll your eyes at because they always had to take a picture at a family meal? Now my grandparents are gone, yet I have this tangible connection to them through photographs. I have a tangible connection to my past and my family's past.
Now I take loads of photographs of my own children because I want to remember their little features and expressions as they grow up. I'm sure you do too! But even more important than that is leaving behind precious memories for them. That is why I'm a photographer. That is why I love what I do. And that is why photography is such an important form of art. It captures moments in time of those we love the most and FOR the ones we love the most. If you feel like we would be a good fit and you connect with my style of photography, I would love to work with you! One of my absolute favorite parts of my job is getting to know my clients and watching them grow through the years. They mean so much to me and it truly is a privilege to serve them in this way. I hope I can serve you too!
what makes me different
Experienced with children
Before I was a photographer I was a teacher, but being a mom of four kiddos has given me the MOST experience interacting with children! And after years of photographing newborns and children, I have lots of tips and tricks! There is nothing I love more than getting those genuine belly laugh smiles on camera.
session prep &
I know how stressful it can be to prepare for a photo session. I have been there! Choosing outfits, getting the kids ready, and wondering what the session will be like... I have you covered! Before your session, you will receive detailed information on how to prepare and what to expect - including outfit selection!
In this digital age our photos stay on our phones and computers, but I want you to be able to hold your memories in your hands and see the color and clarity that my professional lab produces. That's why in addition to including the digital files in your gallery, I offer professional prints at affordable prices!
A little about me
Married My high school sweet heart
We were 16 and 17 years old when we started dating and the rest is history! We had our first date TWENTY years ago! There is no one I would rather do life with. We have been blessed with four precious babies both through birth and adoption, and I am so thankful to have my wonderful husband by my side as we navigate parenthood and dream about the adventures to come.
my favorite things
My little family
These ones right here keep me busy! When I'm not working, I'm doing all the mom things, chasing after little ones, and cleaning up after them. They wear me out... and are a joy and a delight!
