I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina, in the shadow of Grandfather Mountain and with the whistle of Tweetsie on the wind.  What inspiration to a future photographer!  I now reside on Oak Island, North Carolina.  I consider myself lucky to have experienced the many diverse places that North Carolina has to offer!

I started my photography as a hobby in 2000, while working in a camera shop in Raleigh, NC.  In 2008, one of my friends had more faith in me than I did in myself and "flattered" me into shooting her wedding.  One wedding led to two, two weddings led to other family portraits and events, and the rest is history, or rather, a business.  Thanks to the encouragement of my family and friends, and also thanks to an unforeseeable change in my life, I officially declared "fercott photography" as a business in 2009.

The name "fercott" was given to me as a nickname in high school (I wonder if the guy knew what he was starting at the time!).  It comes from the last syllables of my name, the "fer" from Jennifer and the "cott" from Indicott. Match it up with the rhyming phonics of "photography" and the name is a no brainer!  Thus, "fercott photography" was born.

So that I don't get bored, I keep busy with other careers and hobbies.  I was a dental hygienist at the office of Kurt Scheetz, DDS, in Southport, NC.  I also worked in the library at Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, NC.  My hobbies include kayaking, cooking, traveling, hiking, and most important to me, hanging out with my four-legged "kids", Fontana and Brownie.
