Your Photographer, Kelli Summerford Well lets see.... I was born in 1980 and raised in South East Louisiana, I have lived in Manhattan, the mountains of Southern Cali, the Desert of South Cali, the beautiful beaches of Alabama and the middle of no where Alabama.... I now reside back home in New Orleans. I married a Culinary Artist (chef) in 2009 and we have 2 small boys together born 11-07 and 5-11. So even though this is my only job I earn money at, I am a full time wife and mother as well, which any other mom knows is enough by it's self. I always had a talent and a passion for all forms of Art and have won awards for my paintings and pencil drawings (portraits) in the past... I still enjoy painting, jewelry making and other crafts in my spare time. ( Not that I ever have any..lol) I always enjoyed taking photos and looking at photos especially old family pictures. I started Photography as a full time profession around the time I got married. I could not believe the prices the photographers charged, the hoarding of copy rights and most often bad work and thought.... I could do this well..and make people happy.... So I did! At the end of 2017 I have shoot 220 weddings. Of coarse portraits just come along with that and I have a lot of fun doing them. I am quite blessed to be doing what I enjoy and still find time for my family, plus I get to contribute in a huge way to one of the happiest days of some couples lives (Often babies come along and rank pretty high..lol). Unfortunately I am not super woman so I don't overbook myself. So book early!!
