Thank you!

studio Portrait of a soldier and son

Thank you for booking a pre-deployment session with Kimberly Kendall Photography!


Free! This session is completely complimentary as a thank you for your service. If you don’t think you can make it please cancel so we can free up the time for someone else.

What you receive

The session will be approximately 10 minutes. Immediately after the session, you will pick your one favorite picture from either the back of my camera or my computer. I will send you the file by e-mail within a week. You will also be provided two 4×6 prints of that same image that you will be able to pick up at my studio. I will send out an e-mail later for pick up dates and times.


Your session will take place at my home studio on Fort Wainwright, at 1316 Bastogne Court. Google maps puts our address at the beginning of the street, but we’re actually at the end, on the left side of the cul-de-sac. Park along the side or the middle of the cul-de-sac (you can create your own space). *****There’s currently construction on our house, on our roof, but there’s still access to the front door. Sorry about the mess you’ll have to walk by!*****

Once you’ve arrived, please either knock or ring the front door. If you hear a dog bark don’t be alarmed, I’ll have her in another room so she won’t be around us. The studio is down the stairs in our basement. If I am with another client you may have to wait a minute or two because I won’t be able to hear the door if I’m in the basement.

What do I wear?

Your uniform, and for your kids, something that’s not distracting (aka no bold prints, letters, neon colors). Solid colors in earth tones are great choices but don’t stress about it, the purpose of these portraits is to capture your relationship at this time of your lives. You will be photographed on a black backdrop.

The example picture is of my husband and son and I just picked out the only clean nice shirt in his closet, and it was wrinkly, but that doesn’t matter 🙂

Your session

I will have you write your names down on a piece of paper when you first arrive and take a quick photo with that paper first so I don’t confuse families 🙂 Also, if you are OK with me using your images on either my website or Facebook Page, I will have a release form available.

Please be on time! I am scheduling these back-to-back so that I can give the opportunity to as many people as possible.

If you have any trouble finding my house, please give me a call at 907.888.8927.
