Barefoot Photography began with a dream. Not just a day dream, but a vision of what living life to the fullest means. The big picture actually came first, knowing the focus would and always will be to effect positive change on the people we meet. As a rule, our experience prides itself on attention to detail and being absorbed in the moment to allow the creative process to flow uninhibited. Quality over quantity is always appreciated here.
At Barefoot Photography, hearts are always open and dreams have no limits.
Jess and Kendra love to create an experience for you that's completely yours. Represents your essence. Speaks to who you are and who you want to be. We work with clients in all seasons of life, but before you even think about choosing the Barefoot Photography team to handle your life's most important moments, we think you should know who we are.
I'm a super creative person - in all sorts of ways. I sew, I cook and I love to make pretty things. The beauty industry has been the focus of my career ever since I went to beauty school after a year of college (let's face it, being a mathematician was not for me - true story, I really was a math major). I'm an entrepreneur to the core and have been the owner or manager of a business since I earned my aesthetics and cosmetology licenses in 2005. I incorporated photography into my skill set after moving to Louisiana in 2010. It was a perfect addition to the creative process I love to do. I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 kids (10 year old daughter and 7 year old son). I love living life to the fullest with my little family and my dream job!
I have a heart for people. I love to find joy in life's craziness and unpredictability. I had been pursuing a degree in speech therapy at ULL but I'm now pursuing a degree in advertising media which means I get paid to be on social media. #dreamjob I also have a background in journalism and an unquenchable passion for fashion. Working at Barefoot Photography is the perfect marriage of the two. I get to tell a story with clothes - your story, about how you're bold and confident and the complexities of your personality are shown within your outfit. It's the best. Also the best is being married to my best friend and being the mom to my daughter.
