Kendyl – OU Senior, Class of 2018 – Norman Senior Photographer


God’s timing is funny. I definitely would not have imagined moving into my first home the day before my senior season begins at full speed, but here we are! Kendyl was my FIRST 2018 graduate and she couldn’t have been a better gal to kick off the chaos with!

Kendyl – OU Senior, Class of 2018 – Norman Senior Photographer

Kendyl was a dream – she was so laid back, easy to work with, and that smile is contagious! I follow all of my girls on Instagram after booking so that I can get to know them a bit…Kendyl was always so personable on social media that it felt like we were already friends by the time we got together to shoot! She was also way ahead of the game and booked with me super early! I so appreciated that because it signaled to me that she was on top of it, excited about working with me, and valued the precious moments on campus!

I never would have thought this before meeting her, but I swear Kendyl looks SO much like Miley Cyrus! Slash Hannah Montana with that gorgeous blonde hair! Please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks that!! She mentioned she had been told that before when she was younger, but I saw it so much in her face! She’s got the fun-loving attitude too & loves to have a good time!

Kendyl will graduate in May with a degree in PR…she is a MASSIVE OU fan and I am confident that her passion and love for the Sooners will not be fading anytime soon – she’s known for throwing the horns down in pictures more often than actually smiling! I LOVED that about her! It sounds like we had a lot in common too – we both experienced a similar situation at the start of senior year of college. I just really resonated with Kendyl and was honored that I got to be her photographer!

Thanks for being the dream Kendyl! And shoutout to her roommate, Katelyn for assisting us at this shoot (and KILLING IT on her makeup!!)
