Behind The Lens: Welcome to My First Blog! 

May 1, 2024

Yay! It’s finally here! I’m beyond excited to share my new blog with you! Adding a blog to has been on my bucket list for a while, and what better time to introduce it than with my refreshed website?

And in case you’re new here, I’m Kendra Foerster, the photographer behind the lens at Portraits by Kendra. I’ve been photographing in the Kitchener-Waterloo region for over 11 years, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share my passion with you.

Photography Tips, Tricks and More:

I’ve got lots of fun things to share with you, and not all of them are photography-focused either. But I’ll be kicking it off by answering some of the most frequent questions I get asked during photo sessions, like “What do I do with my hands?” I’ll be sharing lots of great tips and tricks to ensure you feel comfortable, confident, and special throughout your photo session with me.

Showcasing Clients:

And what I’m really excited about is showcasing you! I can’t wait to feature my clients and share a behind-the-scenes look at some of my most memorable shoots.

About Me and My Journey:

As you may know, I left the corporate world in 2021 and launched Portraits by Kendra full-time, and I’ve never looked back. I’m so fortunate to be following my passion and focusing on areas of photography that bring me joy. 

What I love to shoot:

Headshot and Lifestyle Photography are a big part of my business, but did you know that I also do Custom Sessions and specialize in Brand Photography? With my background in marketing, advertising, and communications, Brand Photography was a natural fit for me. Ask me about how I can help your business stand out online with a cohesive visual branding story. I promise you’ll not only be excited to showcase your new, beautiful, and strategic imagery that reflects your business across all your marketing channels, but you’ll also enjoy and have fun throughout the process.

  • I love snuggling on the couch in the morning with Oliver, my Havanese pup, while enjoying a warm cup of coffee before my kids wake up.
