Hey there, I'm Kendri, Your new favorite third wheel.
Oh, hi!!! I just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself. My full name is Mckendrianna Purdy, but you can call me Kendri. I am the owner and photographer of Purdy K Photo. I am 25 years old and have been taking photography seriously since 2017. From 6th grade on, I started packing around my grandmas digital camera, Taking pictures of my friends at school was one of my favorite things to do. A few years later I started using my moms DSLR for self portraits and photos of my friends. I am a lover of Oregon's stunning sunsets, foggy mountain mornings, and beautiful beaches, lakes, and rivers.
How I got here?
Shortly after I graduated high school, I gave birth to my first child. My mother gifted me her older camera -the same one I used to use as a kid- to capture photos of my own family. I immediately starting practicing, having my brand new baby as the best model! Just a couple years ago I purchased my first full frame professional camera. I recently upgraded to a mirrorless camera and now shoot with two camera bodies. I have spent countless hours invested in education and practicing my technique.
I feel blessed to be where I am today.
Today I am a mother of three amazing and equally wild children that keep me on my toes. Two boys and a girl. I am married to the most supportive husband around, he’s truly my biggest fan. We also have three dogs, a golden retriever, a blue heeler, and a little scruffy mutt. AND Two cats, When I’m not behind the lens, or on my laptop, you’ll find me hanging with my kiddo's!
Fun Facts About Me

"To me, Photography is an art of observation.
It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place...
I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
Kind Words from Amazing Humans
Kendri captured exactly what I was envisioning for my maternity photos! She was so cool and chill about my husband and I getting in the nude for some au naturel photos and made us feel so comfortable. We're grateful she was able to drive out to an amazing waterfall to capture us in such a beautiful area. So so happy with her work and would highly recommend to anyone! ♡
Shout out to Kendri with Purdy K Photo!
My due date is technically September 13th and We had a maternity shoot scheduled for Tuesday but I just found out yesterday I will be induced on Sunday!
She came out that same evening and rocked an awesome shoot and even came out to my house to do it!
I know she does amazing work and I can't wait to see our pictures! I will definitely use her again for family pictures once our little man arrives!
I've shot with Kendri multiple times and each time has been amazing! She's so easy going and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. The quality of pictures is amazing and I never get tired of going back and looking at them. 110% reccomend!
