We forget about the world around us. We focus on your beautiful, messy, real moments. You can always be your true selves when I am with you. We embrace the chaos and have fun. We work in spaces that are comfortable for you and your family. That may be your home, a park near you, an urban setting, nature, or it could be a studio space with very few distractions.

We may get a few posed pictures but the truth is most of the time we are just hanging out and having fun. I am just the lady with the camera chasing your energetic child, chatting with your talkative child, hugging your huggers, sitting with your shy ones, and really just meeting your family’s every need. We don’t worry about time, we just go with the flow. That could be 30 minutes or an hour or sometimes a little more. I want to get to know you and your family and share your journey for years to come.

Knowing you and spending time with you is just as important to me as getting amazing pictures. I want you to be in a place to be able to show your true selves and always feel comfortable, safe, and confident when we are together.

When We Work Together

About Kendra, Mesa Photographer

My grandfather was always my true inspiration for teaching and photography. My grandmother was always the bright, shining star that showed me everyone deserves to feel important, loved and accepted in this crazy world.

My favorite two beings are my husband, Ramon and our pittie, Xena. We love to hike, ride our bikes, and travel. On the weekends you can find us visiting our favorite local breweries with Xena tagging along with us. Downtown Mesa is our favorite!

I fell in love with photography as a kid and have been taking pictures ever since. 

I am your compassionate, patient, down to earth photographer and former special education teacher. I grew up in Massachusetts and moved to Arizona for the sun then later met and married my husband. Together we live in Mesa, AZ with our favorite pooch, Xena. 

My Short Story

—Zoey, Special Education Teacher

Kendra is absolutely incredible. I have been using Kendra for 5 years - she started doing my special education students graduation photos. We became lifelong friends and now captures all of my baby girls milestones! She is so patient, kind and detail oriented. She is one of a kind. I will definitely be using her for all of my future photography needs!!”

—Jenna, Hygienist

"Kendra is an absolutely fantastic photographer. I have two littles and as many parents know, family photos can be dreadful. Kendra is extremely patient and ensures we get beautiful photos every single time. Personally, I’m a huge fan of mini sessions and she provides so many photos. I can’t thank her enough for capturing our family and making it a stress free experience."

—Jessica, Social Worker

"Kendra has been our photographer for years, capturing memories for our family including maternity, newborn, birthdays, family shoots and professional headshots. She finds gorgeous locations to shoot, but can even make the inside of our home look incredible when we do photos indoors! She is so kind and patient, especially with babies, toddlers and pets. She is also great with family members who may not want to have their photo taken initially!"

—Jill, Operations Manager, PD Workshops

"Kendra is a wonderful photographer. She’s basically our official extended family photographer at this point, having done birthday shoots, maternity shoots, newborn shoots, and more for both my sister and I. She’s very kind and makes you feel comfortable during her photoshoots (even if taking pictures isn’t your thing), and she’s incredibly talented—my maternity pictures in particular (taken at sunrise in the desert) are so dreamy."


"Kendra is the best there is. She's done my engagement photos, wedding, maternity, and newborn photos for me and I wouldn’t have trusted anyone else. She’s great at capturing moments without trying and forcing poses. Her edits are always perfect and she is so kind and amazing!"

—Kayla, English Teacher

"Kendra has always captured our most important moments from the first year that my husband and I dated almost a decade ago to our most recent family pictures with our now two year old. It's been really fun to have someone that's become an important part of our family's journey. She was even one of our witnesses when we eloped and didn't tell anyone!"

Whenever we travel, I have to find a favorite local coffee shop and a local brewery

Boston is my favorite city and my forever home

 I just might be a sitcom junkie and love all things true crime

I love to sweat it out a few days a week with hot yoga

Don’t be surprised if I show up in a baseball hat and sneakers for our sessions - they are my biggest collections!

You can most likely find me hiking on the mountain Sundays with my favorite friends
