Kia ora! I’m Kendra, and I’m in the 5th year of running my photography business.

I was born and raised in Tauranga and lived in Auckland for six years. That’s where it all started for me. I got a job straight out of uni in a big corporate role and realising I couldn’t exercise my creative skills definitely took a toll. My Mum suggested that I start making money from my photography, and here we are five years later!

Now I’m based in Tauranga once again, shooting events like the local markets and concerts, family shoots on our beautiful beaches, commercial shoots for cafes and other businesses, and more! I once worried I would be seen as a ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ kinda person, but I’m happy I didn’t settle into one photography niche, as I genuinely love it all.

My style is candid, celebrating the naturalness of the shoot subject(s) and acting as a visual communicator to tell stories. I’m currently running this business, working as a Project Lead for Venture Centre, an entrepreneurial support organisation, and as Project Lead and Photographer here at Creative Bay of Plenty.

If you’re keen for some fresh photos for your business and/or snapshots of special memories, I’m your girl! Also, keen for creative collaborations and projects, so make sure you reach out if you have something in mind.
