Gleaming Moon Photography specializes in outdoor & studio portraits in Des Moines, Iowa.


Welcome Everyone! 
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Jessica Kennebeck and I’m the photographer behind the camera. Growing up, I always had some kind of camera…Disposal, 35mm film, Polaroid, Cellphone(😂) and of course my Nikon DSLR and currently NikonZ6📸. I’ve always had a passion for being creative. Whether I’m painting, crafting or capturing moments, I feel my absolute best when I’m being imaginative. Some fun facts about me: my sign is Taurus♉️ and I’m obsessed with my growing collection of house plants. I married my 8th grade crush, John. He’s a sign/antique collector and my best friend. We tied the knot in 2017 and I became a stay-at-home Mom to our two incredible kiddos. 

✨🌙Thank you for joining me on this journey and for supporting my small, woman-owned business! It’s truly a dream to capture the moments that gleam.🌙✨
