I AM KENSIE, WELCOME TO MY CREATIVE SPACE. THIS IS WHERE I BECOME A VESSEL AND SHARE STORIES AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE PEOPLE AROUND ME.
Growing up I had a passion for the written word. I devoured books like my life depended on it. I am also a pretty decent student. After graduating from high-school I received a degree in business marketing, minoring in technical writing from Angelo State University. I then continued my education; getting a master’s in curriculum and instruction. It was during that time that I accepted a position as a middle school writing teacher. After a rough few years teaching, I stepped away to pursue a wild dream of making money while preserving memories for people.
The first step in that daunting process was to learn, and I firmly believe… if you are going to learn something, learn from the best. I loved the portraits of a baby in a prop that almost looked like a piece of art. So, I contacted a photographer in Nashville and asked her to mentor me and show me how to do what she had been successfully doing as a career. I flew to Tennessee and the rest is history. Almost 10 years later I was drawn back to Tennessee to learn from someone I’ve admired for many years. She taught me to go deeper and search for the presence and meaning in someone’s story.
Where I am today is a cumulation of hard-work, grace, and a strong desire to never stop learning. I have been blessed with two beautiful children and we live on a small plot of land in West Texas.
