....taking the pictures and printing them, too. These photos are meant to be placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years & years to come. Nothing brings me back to the moments that pass too soon more than walking by them and reminding me that littles don't keep, but the pictures do.
The most important thing to me and what I am by far most proud of is my family. I'm a mama to my three littles Maddox, Decker and Sadie. They are without a doubt my reason for photography. I married my best friend Tyler in 2015 at the most gorgeous, intimate winery in Paso Robles. Speaking of wine, my three drinks of choice are coffee, water, and wine (in no particular order). We just recently moved from California to Tennessee. We left the place that we have always called home to rewrite what home means for our little family! I am lucky enough to stay home with my babies where my day job never stops. I hardly watch TV, but when I do it's either Fixer Upper or the Bachelor(ette). We all have our guilty pleasures, right? Besides wearing my mama and photography hats, I'm an amateur DIYer and love spending my weekends doing some sort of home project. Although I am a major introvert, I cannot wait to meet you and become friends!
IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU
1 PETER 4:10
"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace”
....it's not too often we are in the pictures, too. Our phones are filled with pictures of our littles in their everyday moments, but when was the last time that you, mama, were in the pictures too? I know that our littles are going to want pictures of us in them when they are older. And sometimes it's nice to be out of our "mom uniform" in the pictures!
It wasn't until I became a mother that I fell in love with photography. I learned all too fast that my babies were growing and changing before my eyes and photos of them were all I had to preserve those precious memories. I have learned that photos are the only way to capture every season I am in as they pass by. My biggest desire with family photography is for my families to look back on these pictures and not only see images, but be reminded of how they felt in the moment. I want to capture those moments that when they see the photograph hanging on their wall, they can't help but stop because they are brought back to the days that feel so far away. Our littles don't keep, but photographs do.
THE HEART BEHIND IT ALL
"Our session with Courtney was so effortless and the final results were beautiful and something I will always treasure. She was able to capture our family in the most perfect, genuine way and knew how to handle our busy toddler."
"The pictures Courtney took are some of our favorites that we will cherish forever. She knew how to make my family comfortable, helped us smile naturally, and we loved our experience with her! Book her now! You won’t regret it."
"Courtney was so patient and effortless in dealing with our kids and getting them to cooperate. I loved her eye for posing us naturally!! I was obsessed with every photo and people compliment them all the time when they see them hanging in our house!!"
"We had a wonderful experience with Courtney. She let our toddler play and explore all while capturing many sweet moments of our family which turned into dreamy pictures!"
"Courtney was wonderful to work with. I had two children under three years old including an 8week old. She remained calm and encouraging the entire time. Having these beautiful photos to look back on are magical and Courtney made that possible."
