How We Bring Your Story To Life

After you've secured your session date in my calendar, you will receive a detailed questionnaire so I can learn all about you and your family. We will have a phone meeting to determine further details like selecting the perfect location, tips and tricks to make your experience enjoyable and ultimately bringing your dream photography session to life! You will also receive a Style Guide and access to my curated Pinterest Board to help select the perfect wardrobe. 

We'll have a pre-shoot consultation to plan your dream photo session.  

Step one: We plan it!

This is the fun part! After the planning session, you'll feel confident that all the details are in place so you can just show up and let me take care of the rest. This is not a 'smile and stare at the camera' shoot... be prepared to dance, play, snuggle, laugh and enjoy the experience! We will spend a good 1 - 1.5 hours together capturing all the feels.
Extended family sessions are 2 hours in length.

Yep, taking photos should be FUN. And, your shoot day will be!

Step two: We shoot & have fun!

Within 2-3 weeks of your photoshoot, you’ll receive a link to your custom 'first look slideshow' that showcases all your beautiful storytelling images from your session. You will
then decide which collection you'd like to purchase.
Each collection comes with a set of hi-resolution digital images available for immediate download, and an artwork credit to use in the gallery store. Lab quality prints and heirloom products are available and shipped directly to you.   

Grab your favourite beverage and get ready to view your images.

Step three: The reveal!

"AMAZING
photos! We can't thank you enough for bringing our love to life! 

"Kendra made my dreams come true when she suggested a sunflower field for our session. Sunflowers are my favourite flower and bring me so much joy. My experience working with Kendra and the thoughtful planning and delivery of my images was perfection.
I will cherish and hold onto these memories forever."
— Aisha A. 

"Our portraits makes me relive the magic! Kendra made the experience so enjoyable."

When you choose Portraits by Kendra as your photographer, you're not only hiring a photographer with 9 years of professional experience, you're also hiring a photographer who sees and feels the moments through the lens of a mother. 

My children and family are my world, and I know first hand how fleeting this precious time is. I am just as invested in capturing these memories of your family that you will look back on and hold near and dear to your heart.

Lifestyle sessions are laid back and have a more relaxed approach. I create a fun, entertaining and comfortable experience for children and encourage their personalities to shine bright while capturing them in the moment.

Your photo experience is a time for you to be with your family – laughing, snuggling, playing, and just being in the moment. And my job is to capture your joyful connection through the magic of my lens.

I'm Kendra — lifestyle storyteller, wife & mama of two.

that's what I want!

Freezing those precious moments in time, and actually having
fun during your photoshoot!

Let's capture your story!
