Im Courtney Ashcroft, mama to Watson and Palmer, golden hour chaser, and your new biggest fan. I fell in love with photography throughout the years capturing photos of my littles, I thought damn I’m pretty good at this, and took my passion to new heights and decided to take that leap and put myself out there fully, and I’m oh so glad I did because here you are!

As a mom myself, I understand the importance of capturing those core memories that pass by all too quickly. Whether it's a baby's first smile or a family's laughter during a photo session, I love being able to freeze those moments in time and create lasting memories for my clients! I am here to capture the beautiful chaos that is this life!

I'm Courtney!

get to know me.

When I’m not behind the camera, you can usually find me with a messy bun and coffee in hand. I’m a self proclaimed golden hour chaser, mama, and sushi lover. I have a passion for capturing life's precious moments and love nothing more than taking advantage of the natural light and depth the golden hours can bring to photographs. When I’m not capturing memories, you can find me scouting new locations to create more magic!

My gaggle of boys and I had a shoot with Courtney last Fall. She was able to immediately engage with my littles and keep them entertained. We managed to get so many great shots and I’m so grateful for her amazing personality and talent.  
I cannot wait for our next shoot with Courtney. We’ll be using her exclusively for all our family photos from now on!

What a pleasure it was to be photographed by Courtney! My daughter & I had the best time during our session; Courtney truly put care into our session from beginning to end. She was sooo sweet with our little girl, and she went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. The photos turned out so beautifully, and we will truly cherish the memories forever! Anybody would be lucky to have Courtney as their photographer!

My fiancé and I have never had a photoshoot done before and felt awkward about the experience. Courtney was incredibly thoughtful and understanding about our feelings and uneasiness. She made us feel so comfortable during the entire process and made us laugh our nerves away. She created a space that allowed our personalities to shine through in the photos she took and guided us through poses we wanted to try, as well as gave suggestions. Her energy and smile are contagious and her skills as a photographer are outstanding. I never knew we could look so amazing in photos! Thank you Courtney for everything!

I booked Courtney through a referral and I'm so beyond happy I did. I've always hesitated getting professional photos done but she surpassed my expectations. Courtney shot a Mommy and Me session and I loved the results so much I booked her two more times: my daughter's first birthday, and portraits. I will definitely book Courtney for all my future photography needs!
