It has been a LONG time since this blog has seen any love from moi!!! You would think that this winter would have been filled with catching up on this piece, but no. This winter has been one for the books. Anyways, an announcement on that later, gators ;)
 
So, let me tell you a little bit about this family. First of all, they are awesome. Secondly, they are super tight. An thirdly, they are in LOVE with their new addition!!!!! I met mama 13-ish years ago during a really tough time in my life. She was the head DA on a case of mine where one of my best friends and I were hit by a drunk driver. Long story short, she kicked butt and he went to prison. Flash forward to the present and she is still kicking butt in the courtroom, married a really great guy, has had the good fortune of becoming a stepmom to two really beautiful gentlemen, and become a mama to one really sweet little baby boy :)
 
I hope that you all enjoy a little bit of sweetness from their session with me!

A Woodsy Summertime Maternity Session | Greenville, NC | North Carolina Maternity Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/11/woodsy-maternity-session-greenville-nc Remember when the summertime??? Sitting on your porch with a friend or a good book while enjoying some cold tea, driving down the road with the music blaring and the windows down while you pretend to be the best vocal artist ever, letting the kiddos run through the sprinkler after naptime??? Am I killin' some of you out there that aren't digging this cold weather?!!?!??! Weeeeeeeeeeellllllll, this session took place on probably the hottest day of the summer. We were sweating before we even started walking to our location! And while it was pretty muggy & buggy we kept our good attitudes and got some really gorgeous film and digital photos ... and some sweaty cloths ;)

Hope y'all enjoy few lovelies from this session and keep an eye our for their newborn session because I get to meet this sweet little fella in less than 10 days!!!!! 

xoxo

The Announcement of Baby Numero Dos | The Tucker Family | North Carolina Family Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/10/the-announcement-of-baby-numero-dos One little lady thinks that having a new baby sibling is "the perfect birthday present ever"!!!!!

This sweet little family tried for a while for this new baby and it just so happens that the timing worked out perfectly! They couldn't be happier to be a growing family and know that big sister, Alex, will be amazing at her new family title :)

Ashley grabbed a hold of my maternity and newborn special and threw in this mini session to document what their family was like before the newest addition shows up as well as get the perfect announcement for their friends and family!!! Since they are animal lovers and rescuers they also booked a spot for my Halloween mini sessions which are set up to help the Pet Food Pantry of Eastern NC! I'm so excited to have two more sessions with them next year and can't wait to meet this new little bambino as well as hangout with this silly little girl again!

Hope y'all enjoy checking out their photographs!

xoxo,
Court



















and of course a booty shakin' photo ;)

The Jimenez Family | Greenville, NC | North Carolina Family Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/10/the-jimenez-family-greenville-nc-north Earlier this summer one of my most favorite people got a family session for her sister and brother-in-law who were visiting North Carolina from San Francisco ... ummmmmmmm, probably the best gift ever! It might have taken a bit for the little gal to warm up but once she did she was a complete ham ;) The family celebrated that sweet little girls birthday just a few days before and the balloon remnants were still playfully scattered around the home making a lovely living room into a lovely, fun, and bouncy living room :)

Hope you guys enjoy their photos as much as they did!!!

xoxo,

Flora | Duke Gardens | Personal Post http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/6/flora-duke-gardens-personal-post It's been a while since I've just gone out and photographed for myself. I either get in a creative funk or I just plainly don't have time. Recently, though, I got a Pentax 645N I have been pushing myself to photograph my pets and some prettiness ... because those are gonna make me smile the most when I see them on the walls in my home ;) I need to fall back in love with photography every now and then and this camera as well as the raw beauty of film has me falling quickly :)

Had a little bit of time the other day while in Durham and took advantage of the natural lightbox that is a cloudy day. It was awesome. Pretty sure that some folks were waiting for me to fall in the pond because I was hovering to get the most perfect composition that I could with a prime lens.

Anyways, the photographs below are SOOC (Straight out of Camera) except were I removed a couple of leaves here and there using Photoshop because they were really annoying me.

Pentax 645N | Kodak Portra 800 | 75mm f/2.8

Thanks to Peace Camera for the Portra and to ASAP Photo & Camera for the super quick developing!!!

Also, the highly suggested option to add film to your sessions is going to be available starting this week!

xoxo

Baby Eli | Raleigh, NC | North Carolina Newborn Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/6/baby-eli-raleigh-nc-north-carolina Back on the blog is the Irons Family ... one of my fave families of all time :) I can't wait for Pirate football to kick-off so that I can see these sweet little fellas again!

There have only been one or two blog posts that I've done where all of the images that I show are black and white. While the color photos from this session are gorgeous I just felt drawn to the black and white pieces. This post doesn't even begin to cover everything that is their gallery, but are instead just a few of my favorites. Hope y'all enjoy :)

Dash | North Carolina Museum of Art | Raleigh, NC | North Carolina Family Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/3/dash-north-carolina-museum-of-art Reasons why this family rocks:

. they named their son Dash .
. they adopt rescue animals .
. Mom wore the cutest pair of flats that she got in Paris while on their honeymoon .
. Dad works for mucho nonprofits .
. they chose this location because this is where they got engaged .
&
. Mom would spend a lot of time walking this property towards the end of her pregnancy .

This family chose me as their photographer because of my use of color, but were admittedly in love with the black and whites from this session ... so was I ;) 

Y'all enjoy!

xoxo

Mary Charles and Kees | Wrightsville Beach, NC | North Carolina Maternity Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/3/mary-charles-and-kees-wrightsville Within less than a year I have had the honor of photographing this amazing couple's wedding AND their maternity session! They are both completely easygoing and full of love and laughter :) 

The day of their wedding there was the craziest summer storm that seemed to be engulfing all of eastern North Carolina. Well, all of eastern North Carolina except for the family farm in which they exchanged vows and became a family. Fast forward to their maternity session and the weather was supposed to be just as stormy as their wedding day. On the way to Wilmington the day before I just kept hoping and praying that the bad weather would hold off and let us have our session together. I even played all reggae the whole way down to ward off all of the bad weather energy ;) For real!  My friend and Mary Charles' stylist, Susan Chesson, and I as well as Mary Charles herself were checking the weather updates constantly up until the actual session and ya know what ... it was GORGEOUS!!!!! Maybe a little windy and cooler on the beach, but it was still an absolutely lovely day!

In just a few short weeks I get to meet their little boy and capture the newest and most precious moments in this family but until then enjoy some of the photographs from their Wrightsville Beach maternity session :)

xoxo 







This little series below is super adorable because as soon as Kees kissed Mary Charles belly their little boy kicked to let him know he loved him too :)














Mary Charles bundled up on one of Kees sweaters for the final portion of her maternity session!!! LOVE IT!

Spring Mini Sessions | Greenville, NC | North Carolina Childrens Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/2/spring-mini-sessions-greenville-nc Winter is close to being over and the sun is going to stick around a bit longer for us each day!!!!! Yay for any season of the year, but the one that causes seasonal depression ;)

I have set aside March 23rd in Greenville, NC for Spring Mini's and spots are super limited. The sessions run 15 minutes in length and come with the personal print rights for up to 5 edited photographs as well as a custom Facebook timeline cover. These sessions are not meant for newborns, kiddos that have just gotten ahold of their feet (a.k.a. runners), engagement photos, or bridal portraits. If you have more than 2 children or feel like your child would need more time I suggest booking two to three slots. These sessions are scheduled to take place outdoors, but an indoor location has been reserved in the event of rain. Again, spots are very limited and this will be the last mini session offered until the fall. Must be paid for in full since they are "first come, first serve" and gift certificates are available upon request.

For more info and to book your spot email me at:
courtkerrphotography@gmail.com

xoxo

A Couple of Snow Days with my Nieces | Personal Work | North Carolina Portrait Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/2/a-couple-of-snow-days-with-my-nieces On a snow day you get excited to sit in your pj's by the fireplace, eat comfort food all day, maybe go out in the white stuff for a couple of minutes, and watch all of your favorite shows on Netflix or Hulu ... right? Well, not my nieces. They expect a photoshoot. Fo' reals. These were obviously two separate snow storms because the oldest has blonde hair in some of them and is a brunette in others. I love these girls, but I don't have the time to let them change hair color and photograph them again in the same day :P

Can you tell that these girls have had a lot of time in front of the camera? They seriously do whatever I tell them to and most of the time don't need any direction at all. It's like they practice for these days or something ;)

Hopefully we won't have anymore snow shoots this winter, so y'all enjoy these and keep your eyes peeled for some lovely spring portraits!

xoxo

Baby Owen | Greenville, NC | North Carolina Newborn Photographer http://www.courtkerr.com/blog/2014/1/baby-owen-greenville-nc-north-carolina
LOVE this family!!!!!!!!!!! Gooch and I became friends back in 2000 when we worked at the same restaurant, Main Street. Y'all remember that place??!?!!?!? I met her husband, Kelley, there when he would come and visit her at the bar and watch racing, or hockey, or football, or any other sport you could name :) After Main Street we all (including my not at the time but right at this moment boyfriend) worked together at Chico's Mexican restaurant. Oh to be young and work in a college resturant :P Anyways, we have all stayed friends, of course, and I am so excited to have been able to have captured this new moment in their lives! This little guy couldn't have asked for any cooler and down to earth parents ;)

Love you guys and am so happy for your new addition!

xoxo
