Who is Ken?

Even as a kid, Ken enjoyed photography. Back in the days before cameras were digital, Ken had his own darkroom, where he developed his own photographs. Over the years, the digital camera became his equipment of choice. One of Ken’s sayings is, “I started in photography before there was a delete button on the back of the camera.” Today, Ken uses current digital technology to produce amazing photos. Over the years, he has discovered that he most enjoys photographing kids. He has developed a style of candid kid photography that showcases the personality of each child.

Ken enjoys working with kids of all ages. Young kids don’t pose, they don’t always listen, and they sure don’t want to be in a formal photo session! With young kids, Ken takes a candid approach, capturing your child’s curiosity and innocence from moment to moment.

Older kids, such as high school seniorsand teenagers, want that special high-end pose. They want to feel confident and be remembered in a beautiful way. Ken has developed an approach that works with kids’ photography of all ages. He helps them all feel comfortable and relaxed, then captures great photographs. Ken creates photos that will be cherished for a lifetime!

Understanding You and your Kids!

When you work with Ken and his staff you will soon realize your vision is their goal. They get to know you and your family. They spend more time before your photography session than they do at the session itself. Helping you prepare for your photos and creating a common goal allows you to relax. You can then enjoy your photography session. When everyone is dedicated to the goal, fantastic results can be produced. 

A Few Accomplishments

Many of Ken’s general photography is purchased on an ongoing basis for use in commercial work. His work can be seen in Nursery Management Magazine as well as Co-Serv magazine. Some of his best kid’s photography and landscape photos are proudly framed and displayed in homes throughout East Texas and beyond.

Approach to Kids Photography

Ken’s approach to kids’ pictures pays off, as he knows how to get the best out of each kid or young adult. Clients have stated “Ken is so great with my kiddos!” and “he knew exactly what to do to make this special moment a complete success”.  It doesn’t matter the age; he makes everyone comfortable and relaxed.   Another client said “even got my 18-year-old to smile. A huge accomplishment!” Ken says “if anyone is nervous at a kid’s picture session, I am not doing my job”. This is why Ken and his staff feel it is so important to properly prepare, thus creating outstanding kids’ photography!

We had the pleasure of working with Ken for our newborn shoot. He was very patient with us and our little one. (our little man refused to sleep majority of the shoot) Ken did a fantastic job of capturing so many precious moments for us to choose from. Highly recommend him!
