Introduction: I am so excited you are here! Whether I am capturing your sweet family, or celebrating a special moment in your life, like a graduation, birthday, anniversary or new baby, I'm so honored to help you create memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime. ​ I'm a natural light specialist because I believe that natural light, from the sun and its reflections, creates photographs that feel fresh, timeless and truest to you. I begin all portrait sessions two hours before the scheduled sunset during “the golden hour,” when the light is the dreamiest. Photography has been a passion of mine for several years and I have been working in this area since 2007. I began working with a professional photographer at the age of 13, and eventually received a bachelor's degree in fine arts from Siena Heights University, where I focused my attention on ceramics and photography, both film and digital. ​ I'm currently based in Portage, Michigan, but I am a travel bug so name the place and I’ll be there! ​ I know there is a lot to think about when coordinating and scheduling portrait sessions. I want to make your portrait session experience something you’ll look back fondly on for years and years to come. At the end of the day, though, the location you choose and the outfits you select won’t matter nearly as much as the memories you make together. Your future memories are the most important thing to me, and I want your session to be a time for you to just be yourselves and enjoy it. Have fun together. Laugh a lot. And I’ll take care of the rest!

Hemker photography does all my family photos. Korenna is an amazing photographer! She makes the photo shoot fun for everyone. My husband has never been into taking pictures he is usually uncomfortable in those situations but she makes the shoot a very comfortable and relaxed environment and gets a genuine smile out of him every time. She is also great with children always making it fun for them and also coming up with unique ways to get the perfect picture. I will always recommend Hemker photography! Her photos are amazing!

I love that she let me do me when it came to ideas, when I ran out of ideas she pull out her bag of goodies and jumped into action with her own ideas. I was floored with the level of awesomeness that came from this photoshoot. 100/100 would recommend her and I will definitely be back for another.

She is adventurous and accommodating. A true artist. Really captured my son’s personality in his senior photos.
