Amanda + Kendra

 

Amanda Martin

“If I had to think of just one word to describe myself, the first one that comes to mind is: goofball.  I like to joke and have fun, and make people laugh until their ribs hurt, as often as I can.  I’m ALWAYS a glass half-full kind of person, and I tend to see the bright side and beauty in even the worst situations.  From a very young age, I knew that if I wasn’t able to create something unique on a daily basis, I would never be truly happy.  I found photography as a full-time job in 2005, and my love has grown more and more for the field every day since.  I go to sleep at night, and wake up in the morning with thoughts about my next series of images, every single day.  It’s not JUST the creating that I love; it’s also the people. I have made some of the best friends that I have ever had in my life, just by photographing them, or photographing with them.  Booking a new session or wedding is like a gift that I get to unwrap, and the prize inside is always a brand new friend!  Other than meeting people and photographing them, other significant things in my life are music (I am SUCH a huge nerd about it), my two beautiful children who are 12 and 8, traveling as much as I can, and a serious love for anything buffalo chicken related.”

If you would have told me I would co-own a business by the age of 22, I wouldn’t have believed you. Here I am, now 23, and own a business with Amanda. One word you could use to describe me is fashionable. I am always up to date on what the trends are and I like to think my style is pretty awesome, but I might be bias. Growing up, I’ve always had a positive outlook on any situation I am put in. In high school, I started traveling for my off-road racing and motocross job, which turned my photography from a hobby to my profession. It wasn’t until I was 17 that I realized I wanted to branch out. There is something about people that I love capturing how a person really is. At the end of 2013, I made the bittersweet decision to “retire” if you will from the motocross and off-road racing industry. But, this is where my heart is at.A day in the life of Kendra consists mostly of my dogs, to be completely honest. They are my babies, Bailey Jo and Casey Mae! I do have my boyfriend of nearly two years who is three and a half hours away from me at Purdue – Boiler up!! It’s hard, but we make it work with visiting. Communication is KEY! My favorite food is Chipotle. I just cannot get enough of the corn salsa. It’s my weakness. I would tell you my favorite song, but I have way to many. That list would go on for days! I will say I am a big Mumford & Sons fan along with Lana Del Rey. It’s my favorite editing music – nice and relaxing!!
