Kenny was born in Elk Grove Village, Illinois but grew up primarily in Orem, Utah. He is the third oldest of eight children. He attributes his love of photography to his father. He grew up watching his father takes pictures and they would spend time late at night talking about good composition and proper lighting. He visualized images that he would someday take when he had a camera of his own. Kenny graduated from Brigham Young University with a marketing degree, which further strengthened his love for beautiful imagery and the effect it can have on people. After he graduated he moved to Idaho Falls, where he met his wife and got married. He currently resides in Idaho where he spends most of his free time taking photos and spending time with his family.
