McKenna Ehat, Muck to some, Miss McKutenss to others, born and raised in Orem Utah. Youngest in the line of an artist family, she found her niche in photography at a young age, going through her jr. high and highschool years posing in front of camera for her brothers, or making others pose for her behind camera. Through those years she dreamt of living in and photographing England and continental Europe. In 2006 she made that dream a reality by moving to Germany as an Au-pair for a year.
McKenna loved Europe so much she remained in Frankfurt for three and half years, even after her time as an Au-pair ended. She found work as an assistant in the HR department of Nestle, and later as a pre-school teacher/daycare provider, whilst also starting her own portrait photography business in the Frankfurt am Main area.
McKenna is now back in her home town of Orem finishing her education in the Integrated Studies Program at Utah Valley University, where she is studying Art and Visual Communications. Eventually McKenna will find her way back to Europe where her heart truly lies, though is content (for now) living and expanding her mind in Utah.
