First, we will connect and pick a date and time that works for you and your family, and chat about what you envision and what your preferences are. Please feel free and let me know if you have any specific locations in mind! If not, I have lots of beautiful recommendations I can provide for you.

During the session, I'll guide you through various poses and activities that will help capture natural and candid moments. I'll encourage you to interact with each other and to have fun, which will result in genuine and beautiful images!
I am a mama of two, so when it comes to kids and their cooperation, I am here to help! Through my experience as a mama and a family photographer, we can create a relaxed and fun environment that is sure to bring out those big smiles!

After the session, ill carefully curate a collection of best images and provide you with an edited gallery that you can cherish for a lifetime.

Family photo sessions are so exciting, but I understand there are always some nerves, so lets give you an idea on what to expect!

The one thing I am so thankful for is my maternity photos I had taken during both of my pregnancies. Being able to look back on those times and the beauty of pregnancy is such a blessing. My kids also find it super cool to see photos of them in mama’s belly! It’s such a special time in life, lets make sure you document it. I find that the maternity shoots with best results are done at around 28-34 weeks of pregnancy, but of course it is up to you!

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!

kind words
