Spartanburg Photographer | Greenville Photographer | Abbie again :)!!!

I told y’all there were too many that I liked from this session so Abbie would be on the blog again this week!!!  If you missed the first set of her photos be sure to take a look because well… she’s awesome!!!!

Abbie is like me, she would much rather be behind the camera than in front of it.  But let me tell you… she did amazing in front of it, and I’m so glad she was up for it :) :)! She’ll probably hate me when I find some new location or have an idea for a shoot and I bug her to get back in  of my camera… but y’all can you blame me for asking her?

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Photographer | Senior PhotographerSo often people will ask me “do I smile or not smile”, and my response 99% of the time is SMILE, I LOVE LOVE LOVE smiles and smiling photos!!! But after a few sessions with people that can totally pull off the non-smiling face :) I am starting to really LOVE it and actually found myself telling Abbie to not smile (which if you’ve been in front of my camera you know how much I love smiles… which I still do, but if you can rock a serious face :) I may just start mixing it up a tad!!!!).

Greenville Photographer | Spartanburg Photographer | Abbie

Y’all I’m so excited to introduce you to Abbie!!  Abbie contacted me a few weeks ago because she’s interested in photography & was looking to do an internship.  She’s about to be a senior in high school and has her sights on going to school for photography after she graduates next year!!  After visiting a few colleges Abbie decided to google Greenville photographers and I was one of the photographers that popped up & she took the leap and contacted me.  I am so glad she did!!  I met up with her & her mom a few weeks ago to make things final and as of a few weeks ago Abbie became a Kendra Martin Photography intern & I’m so stinking excited to have her!!

Spartanburg Senior Photographer | Greenville Photographer | Eli

I met up with Eli & his girlfriend Brittany on a BEAUTIFUL, April, Sunday evening in Spartanburg a few weeks ago.  When we first moved to Spartanburg I’d been told about this little area but this was the first time I’d had an opportunity to actually photograph a session here & I LOVED IT!!! Granted, I don’t think Eli & Brittany were fond of the gnats that swarmed us at one point but other than that it’s an amazing spot & I’m looking forward to the next time I get to visit this little area!!!

I loved getting to hang out with these Eli & Brittany!!  Most of the session was of Eli since he was (that’s right I can say was because at the time he hadn’t graduated yet… but as of a week ago today he  became a college graduate!!) a senior but I did take a few of him & Brittany as well(those photos will pop up later this week, so stay tuned!!!).  I so enjoyed getting to hear about Eli’s hometown, his family, soccer (he played at Upstate), his plans for the future, and just him in general.  Eli is such an awesome young man and it was truly an honor to photograph him!!!

Spartanburg Photographer | Greenville Photographer | Q&A with Kendra

Over the years I’ve been asked by both photographers & clients why I do not specialize in a particular area of photography….  So today I’m going to answer that question :)!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Spartanburg Senior Photographer | Greenville Senior Photographer

Some of you will read this and be like specialize? Photographer’s specialize? And the answer is yes, there are photographers that ONLY photograph weddings, or seniors, or newborns, or xyz…. If you’ve followed me for any length of time you’ll notice that I definitely photograph all those different “specialties”… I haven’t (and I say haven’t because who is to say in x amount of years that I don’t choose to specialize in something… but for me as a photographer right now this is my answer to this question…)… I haven’t chosen to specialize because I love photographing love!!!

Kendra Martin Photography | Greenville Wedding Photographer | Spartanburg Wedding Photographer | Ellery Farms

I love engagements, I love wedding days… I love the “soon to be”, I love newborns, I love families, and I love watching families grow and then photographing those kids as they go off to do their own thing… So yep, I love love.. All types of love. Not just “we’re getting married love” but all the love that comes from every stage of life. I love the relationships I build with my clients. I love that brides are already thinking about the future and tell me “we can’t wait for you to photograph our family as we grow”… Well I can’t wait either, because I seriously adore the relationships and friendships I’ve created over all the different stages of life.

Kendra Martin Photographer | Greenville Newborn Photographer | Spartanburg Newborn Photographer

I can’t imagine just photographing newborns and not watching them grow into 5 year olds, or high school juniors, that I then photograph as seniors… and then as college seniors and then as brides… I LOVE my clients and I love getting the opportunity to document them for so many different milestones… so yeah, you may see me focus on certain areas in photography at times but right now I don’t want to stop photographing all kinds of love!!!!!
