Greenville Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer | This is me!!

As someone who is a pretty private person I know that in today’s world & owning a business means that I should put a little more out there than the average person. I say should because at the end of the day people are paying me to capture some of their most intimate moments and so if I was them… well I would want to know who on earth is this lady behind the camera & this business!!

I try my best with #fridayintroductions & on my about me page on my website as well as in blog posts and IG posts to let people into my life and get to know me!! I don’t do the best job with IG stories because let’s be honest… I am a business owner that works from home and stays home with my girls so most days I’m in day 3-5 unwashed hair and sweats and life is chaos and I know nobody wants to see that (if you do… well then let me know!!). I am going to continue doing a little here and there so y’all can know who I am and get a glimpse of my life!! At the end of the day I want anyone who reads my blogs, sees my posts or sees me on stories to know that I live a crazy life and even if I post beautiful images my life isn’t always beautiful!! It’s a beautiful, crazy mess and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!!!

Kendra Martin Photography

Over the next few weeks I’m going to blog a little about who I am… what my back ground is… how this photography thing happened and I am soo excited about it. A few years ago I did 12 months of “10 things..” and you can find them by clicking here. And on birthday’s & mine and Gary’s anniversary I hop on and share a little. But it’s been a while since I’ve really written anything personal and thought it was about time I start writing again…. Because I LOVE to write!! I may not be eloquent and I totally write like I talk (drives my mom NUTS) but it’s me and I want y’all to get to know me!!! So this first post doesn’t end up a book I’ll give you my “elevator pitch” of me today!!

I am Kendra and I am a wedding & portrait photographer located in the upstate of south carolina!!! I am married to my high school sweet heart and mom to two sweet little girls!! We have two fur kiddos – daisy & boone!! I love Jesus Christ and know that I am a sinner saved by His grace. I am a “PK” = preacher’s kid (good one I promise!!) and I don’t really have a “hometown” I consider home wherever we are!! I grew up in NC… went to college at UNCW, go Seahawks!!… got married, moved to Northern Virgina, then to Texas and then four years ago to South Carolina!! I am obsessed & have always been obsessed (ask my parents) with memories and document life… my allowance and babysitting money was spent having film processed!! I LOVE sweet tea, chick-fil-a, BBQ (which is pulled pork for those that don’t live in the Carolina’s), all things J.CREW and am pretty obssessed with shoes (may not own a lot but that doesn’t mean I don’t love them!!). You can often find me in workout clothes or wearing black because well I love to wear black. I am most at “home” when I am at the beach!! I love to read, eat sushi, watch netflix & sip a good red blend!! My family & friends mean the world to me and good gravy I can’t thank them enough for their love & support!!!

If you’ve made it this far… thank you popping by and reading a little bit about who I am!! Looking forward into going more into who I am and this business of mine that I love so much!!!!
