Welcome to my new website!

By | 2017-02-09T16:33:51+00:00 March 2nd, 2013|News, Portraits|2 Comments

I have been planning to re-do my website for the longest time.  I finally got to it, and I’m so happy with how it looks so far.  I am still working on adding new images, and putting some old images back onto the site since I am using a different gallery software, and the photos need to be a different size.  That is something I can work on without having the site down.

I would really love to have your feedback!  If you find things that are awkward, or don’t work, please let me know!  Those of you who know me know that building websites is something I do for others, and I usually have other people affiliated with the organization to bounce things off of as I work on it.  But since this is my own site, I only have friends, family and clients to let me know what I’m doing right, and what I need to work on.

We’re Back! | Orange County, CA photographer

By | 2017-02-09T16:33:52+00:00 August 16th, 2012|News|0 Comments

Yes, it’s true, Christina Kennedy Photography is back in Orange County, California.  My husband accepted a position back here at the beginning of June, and we had to quickly find a new home, get our house in Iowa packed up, and move. We arrived almost a month ago.  Since then, we have been busy unpacking, getting re-acquainted with friends, spending time with family, and getting the kids into activities and prepped for school.

We were very sad to leave our new friends in Iowa, but we are very happy to be back home!

I am booking sessions for September and forward, so be sure to contact me or call me at 888-280-4414!  I will be offering some limited mini sessions for the holidays in September and October, so be sure to follow me on Facebook, and sign up for my email if you’re interested in one of those sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Beautiful Baby | Des Moines Newborn Photographer

By | 2017-02-09T16:33:52+00:00 May 31st, 2012|Babies|0 Comments

Can I tell you how much I love the community of photographers that I’ve found right here in Des Moines?  Thank goodness for Facebook, which allows us to connect and talk shop virtually, day or night.  But sometimes we even like to get together and photograph people.   Recently, we gathered together at a local studio to photograph moms and their babies.  We had babies from newborn through to one year old.  Because of the shear volume of us that showed up, around 80 I’m told, it was very difficult to photograph all of the babies that we had, as they were all available individually for brief periods of time.   I was able to capture a few photos, but I thought I would share one of my favorites.

I would love to capture images of you and your newborn.  I can come to the hospital or your home, or both!  Please feel free to contact me.

Valentine’s Mini Sessions | Des Moines Child Photographer

By | 2017-02-09T16:33:52+00:00 January 4th, 2012|Promos|0 Comments

I have one day to shoot some mini sessions for Valentine’s Day!  You will get a 15 minute session, 5-8 proofs in a private, online gallery, 2 5″x7″ prints, and your choice of 32 mini Valentine cards or 24 4″x5″ flat Valentine cards.  The shoot is for up to two children.  All of this for only $99.  Each additional child is only $15.  Additional cards and prints will be available to purchase as well.  Sessions will be January 22nd, from 2pm to 5pm.  The location is tentatively at my home studio, but if the weather stays nice, we will probably venture outside!

If you’d like to see the cards I made for my kids last year, you can see them here.

I’ll post samples of the new cards soon so you’ll be able to plan your kids wardrobe!
