Dan spent the majority of his earlier years penciling mini-masterpieces and, unlike most photo success stories, did not receive a “hand-me-down” camera from his great grandfather at the ripe age of two. The coming of Daniel’s photographic age came much more in his own style: when he realized that the click of a button produced an image much faster then a pencil ever would. Five years and two degrees later he re-located to the Boston area ready to tackle the industry. Specializing in commercial work and headshots, Dan can usually be found with a business professional or brand in front of his lens.

Kendra grew up in a small town in Indiana where she tackled everything from ceramics and sculpture to painting and drawing. She first heard about the Hallmark Institute of Photography from a high-school internship at a local photography studio and, upon graduating, moved to Massachusetts to attend. One year later she and Dan moved to the Northshore area and opened Lightshed Photography Studio. A wonder with children, Kendra can usually be found getting the perfect shot of a sleeping infant or giggling two-year old.

Professional Photographers Dan and Kendra St. JohnDan & Kendra met at the Hallmark Institute of Photography and have been a photographic team for over a decade.
