K.Hendrix

Kimberly Hendrix

A free spirit

We met 9 years ago, when I was 18, working as a hostesses in West Hollywood. We were both dreamers with dreams that had not yet come true. Hungry for our art and more than ready to ditch our restaurant jobs. She was in the early stages of her first fashion line and I was all over the map with my goals but had a passion for photography. I had one film camera and one lens and zero knowledge of anything. But she must have believed I was capable because she asked me to shoot her first look book. Our friend and fellow hostess, Valerie, was our model. Somehow the three of us pulled off something pretty special. I still love looking through the images. Their imperfections so beautiful. So fitting. Like a time capsule of our lives. The grain, the scratches on the film, the laughing (we couldn’t stop cracking up), the feeling…

Kimberly had found her calling. Her talent and career kept rising higher and higher from there. Eventually, her work was published in magazines such as Vogue and InStyle, was worn down red carpets and runways.

She had formed the brand K.Hendrix and it was on fire.

The love Kimberly put into each piece was what made her work so unique. Everything was recycled, full of life and charm, never “perfect”, always beautifully flawed. The flow of material, the design of sequins, the cut and style…encompassed a style all her own. I would be able to spot anything she touched.

Even though Kimberly moved across the country and became a busy and successful fashion designer, she always made time to collaborate with me. She happily (and generously) shipped any piece to LA and cheered me on like she always had. We were bonded by our beginnings. I’ve loved shooting her work so much that I never even tried to shoot another designers work. I always wanted her beautiful pieces in any project of mine.

Sometimes she would fly over to LA and we’d meet up for a fun day. She would talk about her children, life in Florida, exciting new projects and dreams. We had believed in each other from day one. Before anyone knew what we had. Before anyone cared. When we were just broke dreamers. Our own style and talent hadn’t even been fully developed or realized.

I wish I could forget when she told me she was dying from cancer. I couldn’t accept it and wouldn’t let it sink in because I wanted to keep hope alive. I was sure I would see her again.

Kimberly was not only an AMAZING designer, she was a vibrant person.. full of life and energy. She was a BOSS and got shit done. She didn’t just day dream. She made it happen. She was generous, supportive, strong, silly and light hearted. Even when she told me of her condition, she was cracking jokes. Trying to break it to me easy and not dwell on sadness. She LOVED her children and for them I am most sad. I hope they always feel how much she adored them.

I want to celebrate her beautiful soul and work…which are so very intertwined. Below are some of my favorites from our collaborations over the years.

We will love and miss you always.

K.Hendrix Forever

Road Trippin // Pt.2

Today is Pt.2 of our Road Trippin blog post. If you missed Pt.1, check it out here!

We continued our adventure and explored……

Coral Pink Sand Dunes

Horseshoe Bend

Antelope Canyon

Monument Valley

I got up a little earlier this morning and wrote out a detailed guide for anyone who wants to travel to these awesome places. And then Chrome just had a terrible moment and shut down unexpectedly and *POOF* it was all gone. So, for now, these photos will stand alone and tell their story.

If you are jonesin for a little trip, check back soon and I’ll get more info up. Or feel free to message me.

We loved the Navajo culture, people and land and are grateful for our experiences.

These were some of our best days EVER!

We would love, love, love to shoot a wedding or elopement in this part of the world. Putting that into the universe and to all the lovebirds out there!

Photos by Laura, Kayla and Adrian.

Road Trippin // Pt.1

Kayla and I love being a photography duo. But we are much more than that. We are best friends and also cousins….and roommates. And yet listing all that, doesn’t even really explain it.

I am older by a couple years but that didn’t stop us from being attached at the hip when we were kids. It was a soul connection from day one. I called her Kayla Bug and she called me Baby Laura. We daydreamed together as kids, lived in our imaginations, ran through forests and explored rocky beaches, gazing into tide pools and daring to touch the crabs. We would sneak out at night and climb onto the roof to look at stars and ponder our lives together. Always wanting the same dreams. Not knowing one day we really would share them together. I lived in a small town in Washington State and she lived in a small town in California. We always longed for more visits and sometimes she would cry when we said our goodbyes. When we were apart, she would receive my hand-me-downs and proudly wear my old things, we would sometimes write or talk on the phone but mostly just wish we could spend more time together. As we grew older, we were still always just as excited to be together. Still daydreamers. We’d grab our sweet Julia Rose (Kayla’s little sis) and take a raft to Rattlesnake Lake, where we all laid out, eating cheese and crackers, drinking ginger brew with our legs in the water. We are so much more than a photography duo.

Our futures were so connected, so intertwined. All our wonder has led to this. And it’s better than we ever imagined.

We love what we do and we love doing it together. We still spend nights, laying up on the roof, dreaming big. But now there is a glass of wine (or two) involved and we make our dreams plans.

Laura Goldenberger Photography is ever growing, ever changing and evolving. We are so excited for this year, so grateful for our rad clients and so inspired to take our craft to the next level.

Now that I’ve given you our story, I wanted to share a glimpse into our lives. We LOVE to travel and find so much inspiration in doing so. We wanted to take a little road trip but we didn’t have much time and wanted to keep the budget as small as possible (because we have some bigger trips coming up). So we grabbed my boyfriend, Adrian, booked some cheap motels and loaded up the car for a road trip. We stocked up on Trader Joes + Whole Foods goods, rented books on tape from the library and brought one digital camera, one film camera and one polaroid.

It ended up being one of the best trips of our lives.

Today I am showing part 1 of our adventure. I also thought I would leave you guys with some info about our trip in case you should plan to visit after seeing this (and you should). I found a little challenging to find great guides when I was planning so here’s my contribution:

TRAVEL GUIDE 

First stop was the Grand Canyon. It was just as beautiful and incredible as you think it will be. Kayla dropped her phone into. Goodbye forever phone! There are hikes you can do such as Skeleton point on the South Kaibab trail, we also hear it’s nice to go to Zuni Point but we were pretty tired from a very early morning and were happy to just explore the rim trail. We ate from our supplies that day and stayed at Red Feather Lodge. The lodge was cheap enough and close to the Grand Canyon so it did the job.

The next day we headed to Zion National Park for two nights. Put this place on your bucket list right now. Pictures do not to it justice. I felt disappointed with every photo because it just cannot capture the magnitude of it. You just have to go see and experience it.

We are outdoorsy, and love to hike, so Zion is a paradise. Our favorite was Observation Point. This is one of most incredible hikes we have done to date. It’s 8 miles round trip, has areas of cliffside trail (which can make anyone a little dizzy), is extremely scenic and has a huge payoff at the end with the best view in Zion. You can read more about it here.

The Narrows kept coming up as a favorite hike of many. We did attempt it very briefly but you have to trek through water and it was FREEZING. We learned very quickly this was not a winter hike even though it was a hot day. That water burned it was so cold. So if you come in the summer time, it seems that is also a must do.

Angel’s Landing was the other major hike we kept hearing about. But upon further investigation, I decided it wasn’t for me. It’s a very intense experience for anyone with any remote fear of heights. Though I was tempted, I decided Observation Point was a better choice. If you can handle your heart beating out of your chest on a hike, you can learn more about it here. It looks incredible!

There area also lots of pretty, little hikes you can check out such as Emerald Pools Trail and Riverside Walk.

Zion has such a cute town, right outside, called Springdale. We loved everything about it! We stayed at the cozy Pioneer Lodge, it felt like a cabin, fit our budget and was centrally located. We had a great dinner at Amigos, coffee and lunch at Cafe Soleil and a huge breakfast at Oscar’s Cafe which was ideal before hiking all day. We also had a memorable conversation with the lady working at Zion Rock & Gem and I finally got a salt lamp and picked up some cool gems.

Next stop was Bryce Canyon. Such a unique and gorgeous place! We hiked Peek-a-boo trail and highly recommend it. It’s 5.5 miles of the heart and soul of the canyon. We also drove around the park and stopped off to see the lookouts and walked along the rim for a bit. But you really gotta hike down into it to fully experience the beauty. We did a full day of this and then headed to our motel. We stayed at America’s Best Value Inn + Suites in Tropic, Utah. It wasn’t as close to the park as the other motels had been but it was a little adventure (and most importantly cheap). When we got there, our key was in an envelope on the door waiting for us. We got situated and then went to go grab dinner somewhere. Okay…so there is NO where to get food in the off season. Do not show up to Tropic without some rations. It was 7pm and there wasn’t a grocery store or restaurant open for miles. Luckily we still had some grub from Trader Joes that held us through the night. Breakfast was also not an option because everything was still closed. I went to check out and even the motel wasn’t open so I just left the keys in the room. I’m sure in the on season, people open their doors but it felt like staying in a ghost town. So if you happen to travel through in the winter, you best bring some snackies and water.

Pt.2 will be on the blog tomorrow!

Photos by Laura, Kayla AND Adrian (teachin my man to rock it out) ENJOY!

Alex + Jordan’s Palm Springs Wedding

Jordan y Alex

Family and friends came from far and wide to celebrate in Palm Springs. It was a beautiful blend of cultures who all shared the LOVE of family and excitement to see these two make it official.

They were married at the Henry Mancini Estate and got the party started at the Saguaro Hotel.

We loved their choice of color and style! It’s bright, happy and perfect scheme for the desert. Sure to inspire many!

Congrats to such a wonderful couple!
