I hope you guys have had an amazing month!! I can’t believe September is just a few short days away!!!  I know that most of my 10 things about Kendra posts are pretty random… but I feel like this one is even more random than usual!!! Hope you enjoy!!

1. I used to LOVE going to back to school in the fall!  Alright, I didn’t so much love it when it was my first day at a new school… but I did love the start of the school year!!!!

2. Speaking of school I have felt the calling to home school miss Kenzie.  We started last year with preschool and it’s been a lot of fun!  A lot of work, but such a joy to watch her learn and grow!!  Looking forward to this home school journey.

3.  When we lived in Texas we started a garden!!!  We had to abandon the garden with our move to South Carolina, but hey we (and I mean Gary) started it and did a lot of awesome & hard work.  He says he wants to do one here in SC… but I have a feeling our rabbits, squirrels, birds, and other backyard animals would eat it all!!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Senior Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer | Senior Photographer_0010Kenzie may have not been the happiest kiddo for this session but I sure do love this set of photos Olivia took of us last fall… thank goodness Kenzie decided to be happy for a few :)!!! Olivia, so glad we were able to be in front of your camera for these!!!!

4.  Kenzie is getting a play set!!  It’s been a lot of fun to dream this one up and Gary build it ;)!!!

5.  I have TWO instagram accounts.  One of personal stuff and the other for photography/my everyday life.  If you don’t follow the photography one you should!!! You may be missing some awesome stuff!!!!!!!

6. I LOVE COOK-OUT MILKSHAKES… for those of you who are not blessed to live in the south (NC, SC… maybe GA I don’t know if y’all have them) or blessed to live somewhere that cook-out has arrived… ohh man you are missing out.  These things are amazing.  AND I am 100% boring… I have ALWAYS (since like middle school or elementary school when I was first introduced to cook-out) ALWAYS had a penut butter fudge milkshake… YUM!!!!! And for those of you who wonder if I drink it or use a spoon… I totally let it sit for a few minutes so I can drink it because it’s a milkshake and I want to DRINK it!!!!!!!!!!  If you’re ever over here on the east coast and see a cook-out… you should totally stop!!!!

7.  I DO NOT HAVE FACBOOK ON MY PHONE!!! Which means, if you message me on Facebook, I’m NOT going to see it for maybe days, or weeks, or months!!!!!  It became a time sucker for me a few years ago so off it went!! If you need me (especially for photography) EMAIL me:):)!!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Senior Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer | Senior Photographer_0009I was back in Texas for the arrival of my nephew a few weeks ago.  While there my friend Aubrey took a few photos of Kenzie & I .. and a few of me so I had some updated head shots!! We soo loved our time with you!! Kenzie keeps asking me… “is Aubrey going to take our photos again” and my response is “I hope so sweet girl!!” :)!!!  So glad God placed you in my life 4+ years ago!!!!

8.  I love laying in a hammock!!!

9.  I love the color pink…

10. JCREW…. I love all things jcrew… I love the fact that it’s timeless & classic… and soo me.  I have WAY too many jcrew cardigans in my closet!!!!!!!

:)Well that was random and fun!!! See y’all in September!!! And if you’re interested in the last 6 10 things about Kendra posts click here….

I love your new headshot! Super cute, girlie. And I didn’t know you were going to homeschool! Check out this link – the top 3 or 4 articles are all about homeschooling. My friend Melissa has rocked it with her girls! http://houston.citymomsblog.com/?s=homeschool&submit=Search

It’s been so much fun getting to know Abbie over the last few months & I’m so looking forward to getting to know her more until next year when she heads off to college.  I didn’t realize how much help an intern could be until she came along and now I’m already thinking about what I’m going to do next fall!!!  😉 Abbie was totally awesome a few weeks back when I asked her if she’d meet me so I could try out a new photography gadget… I’m still not sure I like the gadget 😉 or not… If I do end up starting to use it I’ll blog about it, but if not it was fun to have her back in front of my camera for a super quick senior photography session!!

Abbie, thank you for all your hard work so far!!! No we need to get a camera in your hands ;)!!!!  Hope y’all enjoy this quick session!!Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Senior Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer | Senior Photographer_0002

When ­­RJ first wrote contacted me about photography his first question to me was “1st – Did you really move to SC??!!!” and my response was yes, but I’ll be back in the Houston area over the next few months… from there everything kind of fell into place and when I was back in the Houston area for my sister’s baby shower & to take her maternity photos I met RJ in and around the Sugar Land area to take photos for his upcoming CD he’ll release later this year.

It was truly an honor to photograph another artist. RJ had a vision for the type of photos he wanted & had total faith that I would deliver (and for that I can’t thank him enough)… and at the end of the day I think we both walked away with images that we love. I have had this session ready to go for a while but just haven’t shown them off because I was waiting for the “right” time to blog them… well I think after being in Houston for the 10+ days it made it the right time & I am so excited to share these images with you guys!!!

RJ is a musician & it was so fun to document him for something that he’s put so much heart into. I’m looking forward to the release of his album!!! RJ, thank you for trusting me and wanting me to be the one to take these images for you. I’m so glad the timing worked out & even though it was crazy MUGGY & HOT the evening of your session it was a lot of fun!!!!

I HATE surprises… LIKE REALLY HATE SURPRISES… BUT I sure do love surprising other people!!!!  When James’ mom contacted me in the spring about taking engagement photos of Emily & James when they were in South Carolina for a wedding (they live in Texas) I totally was on board.  #1 because well I love documenting love.  #2 because I actually photographed Emily’s High School Senior photos a few years back when I was living in Texas… and one thing I’ve said over and over is how much I’d love to be able to document my senior girls when they got married so this just made me all sorts of happy!!!  But it also meant I couldn’t chat with Emily about the session at all.

Turns out Nancy (James’ mom) was going to keep the surprise from both of them until they pulled up and saw me…. unfortunately due to some kinks in the plan she had to tell Emily the day of the session so she would know there was actually a reason for them leaving Charleston to come to the Greenville area!!!!  Emily said when she found out she was soo excited & I’m pretty sure she still was when she pulled up and we hugged!!!!  So fun to see a familiar Texas face here in South Carolina!!!!

Emily & James will be tying the knot next year in Texas, but ohh what a joy it was to document the two of them for their engagement photos here in South Carolina (even if it was crazy hot… and let me say, it was hot for SC standards… not TEXAS hot, because two days later I was hit with crazy Texas hot and there is a difference… a BIG difference).  I loved getting to catch up with Emily & get to know James… but more than that… I LOVED getting to see these two interact because good gravy they are super sweet to each other!!!  I so enjoyed being around Emily & James… from the way they bantered, to the way they held hands, to the way they looked so adoringly at each other… ahhhh it was such a fun Sunday evening!!

Nancy, thank you for wanting me to photograph these two!!! I loved being part of such a fun surprise!!!  Next time you’re back in the Greenville area please bug me because I’d love to see you!!  Emily & James, I’m so glad y’all were excited about the session!!!  I had the best time with you two!!! Looking forward to hearing all about the wedding planning & to y’all becoming husband and wife!!! To everyone else…. I hope y’all enjoy a few of James & Emily’s engagement photos!!!
