PORTFOLIO

NASHVILLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER 

an effortles EXPERIENCE DONE FOR YOU.

I know first hand that the days are fleeting and it seems all we are left with are distant memories. My desire is to capture the season of life you are in in the most authentic way to preserve those memories through beautiful heirloom artwork. I want you to look back on these photos and not only see images, but be reminded of how you felt in the moment. My style is joyful, authentic, and timeless, which I believe creates photographs that bring you back to the days that feel so far away. I hope to be the one to have this opportunity to create these memories for you!

And I can't wait to TAKE CARE OF YOU

I’m Courtney
