More about Kendra:

My name is Kendra Swalls and I am a serial entrepreneur (admitting it is the first step). In 2012 I had the crazy idea to start a photography business, while I was teaching full time AND 6 months pregnant! I would love to tell you that my business took off like a rocket, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. In reality my business took a lot of time, hard work and patience. I had several failures along the way that I learned from, and that helped me appreciate the success that eventually came. In 2017 I was able to leave my teaching job to run my photography business full time. At the same time I found my second passion in helping other women start and grow their own businesses.
