i create art out of real families' real memories

Kindred Photography captures unforgettable memories for adventurous and creative couples and families, turning them into exquisite high-end art pieces. I love to photograph the every day, unposed moments that make up your real life, whether that be your wedding day, welcoming a new baby, or your children as they grow.

I'm Kelly Warkentin

The artist behind Kindred Photography. I believe:




Experiences and the people we share them with are far more important than things. 

Imagination and creativity should never be stifled

Asking questions and challenging the norm is how we grow

As a mom of two trained in photojournalism, I help families preserve real memories because I know how quickly the early days of my children's lives faded into hazy memories of sleep deprivation, diapers and baby rolls.

With a passion for connection and living in the moment, I aim to turn your every day moments into gorgeous art, so you can see the beauty in your life displayed in your home. Because when these memories fade, all we're left with is photos, and sometimes an iPhone just won't cut it.

what I stand for

interesting things about me


I spent most of my life thinking I wasn't creative after my Grade 2 teacher suggested a "how to draw" book on my report card. Learning photography at 19 finally changed that.

When I'm in a really good mood I belt out Disney songs at the top of my lungs and dance in the kitchen.

I drink two to three cups of black coffee every day and truly believe I'll just stop functioning without it.
