Hi, I am Kinzie Payne.
I am a Redlands local often found at a local coffee shop, in the gym, or at the beach. I am your typical Californian girl and more. I grew up in Calimesa, graduated from Yucaipa High School (Go T-birds!), and have been living in Redlands for the past couple of years. I love it here, and I have a deep appreciation for the beautiful people who make up our community.
I aim to create a collaborative space between myself, as a photographer, and those in my community. I want to create new memories with you, capture those moments, photograph different milestones in your life, and produce something that will make you smile every time you look at it.
One of my favorite things about being a photographer is creating friendships with my clients! We won't be doing any awkward posing and forced smiles at our session. Lot's of fun stories, laughing, and genuine emotions coming your way. You may even forget you're taking photos for a minute :). I know you are going to tell me that you are awkward and don't know what you're doing, but thats why you have me! There is nothing to worry about, just come and have some good conversation and some fun times! The only awkward one there will be me. You will probably see my clumsy self trip over my own feet a few times lol.
“An amazing experience with Kinzie! She knows how to keep things candid and is a natural at bringing emotions out. Her eye for the scenery and backdrops is sharp with a penchant for the right influence depending on your needs. She also has great ideas if you don’t know what you want. Highly recommend to see her! She’s also very silly and goofy which helps keep the energy fresh. I never felt uncomfortable at any point.”
