My first love is lifestyle photography. I use photo-journalistic, raw, organic light model when shooting. It renders more candid shots and completely natural expressions. I call it life in "e-motion" or beautiful chaos! With my clients, I strive to collaborate, and capture the uniqueness of your family- not a storefront, contrived one. I use minimal direction, but lots of support. This vision and model makes me a great fit with some families, but not all. It’s always best we gab to ensure we are a good fit!
Most people know me simply as, Kerri.
I bounce like a cat but run like a giraffe. Picture (see what I did there?) a spider on roller skates. I run 5K's for charity but, I wasn't built for speed- I'm okay with that.
I work hard, but play harder. I work bizarre hours and my off-time sacred.
I'm silly and smart, witty and quick to offer a smile. I'm confident and happy with my age (they are not "grays" I'm simply sprouting glitter). I'm headstrong and astute; passionate and kind. I'm goofy, giggly, and have a smile that goes from ear to ear. Think Cheshire Cat! I sing off key- but at least I give it a try.
I'm always a work in progress - always will be.
I've got a handful of the best girlfriends a girl can ask for. They are worth their weight in gold, so I'm a rich woman. I've traveled to 17 Caribbean and Central American countries (many a few times over), my favorite being Bermuda... She owns my heart. I try to go back every single year.
I love the color blue and really dislike red. I love potato chips, but hate cupcakes. Yuck, yuck, yuck!
I "sea" a salty pattern... Maybe I am an ocean girl at heart? Though snow is my absolute favorite thing in the world, the beach (preferably a tropical one) is a very close second.
I try to watch sun rises and sunsets every day that I can. It's a bonus to see both in the same day!
I love to cook and I'm crafty to a fault. I'm a bit like McGiver and can rig just about anything; it goes with working off the cuff.
I'm very allergic to bees but I love them anyway! I'm not "girly" and certainly not grossed out by much of anything... Once you scroll down you will realize why.
I’ve had a pretty exciting life as a Paramedic (this is the why) and a Patient Advocate. I cherished my time as an Alzheimer’s educator; however, Mom has been the best "job" of all! I'm the biggest champion to a tween, hockey loving daughter and toddler son who's into... Well... Everything! I know just how you feel when you say "my kids are everything to me" or, "they grow up so fast!"
I've been happily married for nearly 20 years, to the love of my life. He's my air, my earth, my ground, my solace and my best friend. I understand the starry eyed love, life is going too fast, and how did we get "here?" I understand and see the quiet "I love you to the ends of the earth looks" couples share. I also understand tired, life is too hectic, "do I really have to do this?" quiet exchanges... You know, the ones only between you and your partner?
Like you, my family has always been, and always will be, my entire world.
Since late 2010, I can be found behind one of my cameras, delving into the best hobby turned career. With some years under my belt, and lots of local, fabulous colleagues, I always try to stay fresh, creative, and inspired!
