It is with great pleasure that I recommend the photography services of Kerri Cotter and Kerri Cotter Photography.  I have known Kerri for 14 years and since the start of her photography career, I have hired her on numerous occasions for family portraits, sports / action photos and professional marketing photos.

Kerri’s professionalism, talent and dedication are always apparent.  She works with each client prior to a shoot to determine exactly what they are looking for with their photos.  She prepares prior to each shoot, evaluating various locations and she works tirelessly during and after each photography session.  Kerri is extremely easy to work with and makes her clients feel at ease and relaxed, so the experience is enjoyable and the results are quality images and remembrances of special occasions and milestones.  Kerri makes sure she always “gets the perfect shot”, capturing the expression and personality of all her subjects. Her action shots express her love of sports and dance and she has the amazing ability to document those special moments during a game or recital.  After a photo shoot, Kerri shares her expertise and knowledge with her clients, assisting with the photo selection process. Kerri’s goal of customer satisfaction is always achieved. Her creative talents and love of photography are obvious on whatever type of project she is working.  She is willing to try new things and think outside the box.  Her innovative ideas are what set her apart from others.   Her natural ability and keen eye for detail are evident in all of her work.   As a local businesswoman, Kerri shares her experience and passion for her profession.  She works with high school interns who share her love of photography.  In addition, Kerri contributes to career breakfasts and job shadow programs at the local high school and contributes to various charities, further sharing what she loves to do and giving back to the community where she works and lives.

I have seen Kerri’s business transform from a sports oriented photography niche, to a multi-faceted photography business.  She continues to grow her business and expand her training to stay current with new techniques, products, and technologies.  The name “Kerri Cotter Photography” is becoming established within the Westford community and beyond and Kerri continues to work toward expanding the business she loves and has developed over the years. Without question, I will continue to look to Kerri Cotter Photography for all my personal and professional photography needs. Ann Miller, Westford

Kerri is a true artist behind the camera. She has a fantastic sense of atmosphere and lighting, which allows her to create unforgettable photographs. I have hired Kerri several times for family photo shoots and a large family reunion. Kerri is the ultimate professional and a pleasure to work with.  Kerri is great at directing her subjects to pose naturally and she gets the perfect shot every time. I give Kerri my highest recommendation and look forward to collaborating with her again soon. Bill Taussig, Needham

I have hired Kerri Cotter Photography on 3 occasions and couldn’t be happier with her work. Kerri photographed both my sons for their senior portraits and they came out wonderful. Kerri has a special way about her that makes the kids feel comfortable, relaxed and natural in front of the camera. Kerri did a studio photo shoot of my daughter and her friend. The girls had a fantastic time that included wardrobe changes and fans blowing their hair! The portraits came out absolutely beautiful! Kerri is so easy to get in touch with and responds promptly. She is very accommodating and flexible with scheduling appointments. Not only is Kerri a incredibly talented photographer she is a wonderful, caring person! Donna Previte, Westford

Kerri Cotter did a professional photo shoot session with myself and a colleague for a book cover.  Kerri ran the session in a very efficient, professional and relaxing manner and made something that both my colleague and I find very difficult to do into something very easy (and even fun) to do. Kerri’s photography was of the highest quality and she is our go-to photographer for any future projects.  I was also very impressed with Kerri’s marketing skills the how she runs her business.

Kerri Cotter has photographed all three of my children to create precious keepsakes for our family.  She has also been my business photographer for many years. Kerri photographed my two son’s Senior High School portraits, which sit prominently on our mantel.  Her artistic photography skills coupled with her warm and fun-loving personality put my children at ease.  The resulting photographs truly capture each of my son’s personalities.  She also created a wonderful montage “poster” of sports photos she took of my son during his Senior hockey season.  After playing hockey for 12 years, he was thrilled to receive this keepsake that still hangs framed on his bedroom wall many years later. Last month my daughter attended her first high school formal dance.  Kerri was hired by another family to take photos of the children with their dates and their families, at a pre-dance celebration at this family’s home.  Kerri easily managed 20 teenagers and their families as she organized them into a variety of groups and setups, resulting in stunning photographs.  Again, Kerri’s warm presence and sense of humor put the children at ease to create very natural looking photographs.

Kerri has also photographed my 5-member real estate team for many years.  It is not an activity that my team would normally enjoy, but Kerri makes it fun!  Our individual head shots and team photos appear on more than 100 real estate websites.While it is obvious that Kerri’s education from Boston University’s Photography program gave her a strong foundation for her photography skills, it is her connection with her subjects that makes her stand out from all other photographers.

I just had to write you a note to say thank you for the work you’ve done for me in my personal life by taking Megan’s senior portrait and professional life by taking the winning shot for my book covers. You’re easy going style made me so comfortable when I am usually not very comfortable with being photographed. The photo shoot was actually fun with lots of laughs!  We will definitely use you again when we decide to update our photo. My daughter was also very comfortable and the backdrop of the meadow was just gorgeous.  We love her senior portraits and are happy that we chose you as her photographer. Thank you for your professionalism and for the fabulous photos. Nadine Briggs, Westford
