My experience in photography comes not only from one on one training, but also hands on experience from being in the business for over 5 years. This is so important, especially when working with newborns, due to safety issues that don't exist in other types of photography. 

As a Mother myself, I know how much time and effort goes into planning a photography session and how intimidating it can feel to get in front of the camera—especially right after giving birth. With my KDP Experience - I design my session to help you feel comfortable, relaxed, and beautiful in front of my camera, you will receive beautiful images from a stress-free portrait session. You will not only get amazing professional portraits, you will get an experience with memories that last a lifetime.

I didn’t know much about newborn pictures, but I am so thankful that Kendrah was suggested to me by another photographer (who doesn’t do newborn pics). Kendrah was so gentle with my newborn and catered to my style and interests. At one point when I was looking for a photographer, I thought just professional photographer would do, but after my experience with Kendrah, I would highly recommend using her business and NOT going with just a regular photographer. I was so impressed with her studio, professionalism, and (more importantly) her gentle handling of my week old baby. We loved our experience!

We started using Kendrah Damis photography with the arrival of my daughter in August of 2019. I was beyond impressed with the photos. To say I was happy with the service is an understatement. My daughter was fussy and just not having it that day. Kendrah was patient and kind. She was professional and understanding.
Fast forward to yesterday. It was time for my daughter's first birthday session. Kendrah suggested a cake smash for the session. I was a little leary to be honest but I trust her opinion so I did it. Seriously!!! If you haven't booked with her are missing out on the best talent around. She is so easy to work with and pours her heart into everything she does.
My family and I are forever clients and I highly encourage anyone to contact her first. Her pricing is fair and worth every dime. You not only receive pictures but you receive an experience using Kendrah Damis photography ♡~Kiersten

Kendrah Damis does more than just capture an image, she captures magic. The magic of a newborn's first fleeting smile, the magical feeling of holding your baby in your arms.
It doesn't matter if you're a postpartum wreck, or your toddler is screaming in the background, she stays focused and knows just how to spot those tiny moments of magic that you were too distracted to see.
She is truly an artist, and the art she gives you will be something you cherish for a lifetime.

I have shot with Kendrah for a few years, and was especially excited to book maternity with her. She captured every bit of the beauty during my session.
My husband who is shy in front of the camera said he never felt more comfortable. Kendrah has a way of making anyone feel like a long time friend and you almost forget there is a camera clicking.
The turn around for my photos was quicker than I had anticipated but no detail went unnoticed. Her editing skills are incomparable to others in the area.

Kendrah is not only our go to photographer, but she has become a friend along the way. I had the opportunity to meet her several years ago after seeing some of her work shared on social media and decided I wanted pictures just as beautiful of my own family. We decided to take the plunge and book a session with her, and we have never been disappointed! She is rather talented, but there is quite a bit of skill and hard work but into her sessions as well. It almost sounds odd to say "work" and it refer to "art," but she definitely puts her all into this passion of hers. She has been helpful when deciding what to wear, helping narrow down backdrops, and putting together a complete vision. On top of that she is thorough and her communication back and forth is spot on! She gets galleries delivered on time and answers any questions we've ever had. Having been with her through so many milestones at this point - children's birthdays, maternity, birth, and newborn & family sessions - Kendrah is almost like an extension of our family. She's the best!

Kendrah does such a great job! Our family started coming to her Aug 2021 for our newborn daughters photos and they were everything we could of asked for and more! She has currently done 3 sessions for us and I couldn't of asked for better photos of our family. I recommend her to everyone I know.

Kendrah did our newborn and milestone photos and she was nothing but professional and absolutely delightful with our children. My kids adore her! She was so patient and did an amazing job capturing our child’s first year. I would recommend her to anyone. Her photos are worth every penny.

We love having our family photos done by Kendrah! She's amazing and always gets our daughter to smile even when she wants nothing to do with the session! Our house is filled with important moments and memories that Kendrah captured beautifully for us.
