About Me

Hi, I’m Courtney. I love people, photography & have a serious case of Wanderlust. I fell in love with photography as a young child when I “modeled” on the other side of the camera. Being the free-spirit/wild-4th child that I am, I never wanted to miss out on anything, so I began taking my camera EVERYWHERE. I was “that” kid at the parties growing up. Ha! I truly gained an appreciation for this art form back in college where I learned to develop my own film in the dark room. It wasn’t until 2009 that I finally jumped on the DSLR band-wagon & CKE Photography was born. Now, nearly 10 years later…here I am, more madly in love than ever before. Continually learning & growing & evolving. It just looks a little different now, since I am also a wife of 18 years & a mom of two teenagers (one who recently learned to drive!!! Eeek). Life continues to get busier with each passing day, but it’s what we do with it that counts. I try to capture the everyday around here just to keep things real & not let life pass me by. So there you have it. That’s a little about me.
