About Kendra Swalls

Nice to meet you!

Hi! I am Kendra Swalls owner and photographer behind Paisley Layne Photography. I am a boutique-style portrait and wedding photographer serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I specialize in high school seniors, women’s glamour and wedding photography.Photography has always been a part of my life. Growing up my walls were covered with snapshots of my family and friends, and I never left home without my camera. There was something magical about a photograph. The ability to freeze a moment in time and go back to it anytime I wanted captivated me.In college I studied elementary education but took a few film photography courses “just for fun”. Following college I began a career teaching elementary students but my love for photography never dulled. In 2009 my husband bought me my first DSLR for Christmas – a Canon Rebel t1i and in 2011 Paisley Layne Photography was born.When I am not behind the camera you can usually find me at home spending time with my family, watching movies or playing outside.

Life is an awfully big adventure …
