I believe in the beauty of the ordinary every day. That the moments that are the most important in our lives, are often the most unsuspecting. Since it's humble beginning in 2015, my photography business has been dedicated to capturing families and their stories in a true and authentic way. Whether you are welcoming your first child or your family is complete, it is my passion to document your story.
I'm so glad you're here. I'm Courtney, a lifestyle family, newborn and portrait photographer. My husband Jim and I live in Greenville, South Carolina with our puppy, Eddie, and our daughter, James, who was born in November of 2016.
Since our humble beginning in 2015, my photography business has been dedicated to family in every stage of life. From birth and beyond, it is my passion to document your family's story.
We had such an incredible experience with Courtney! We utilized her for our newborn photos and I did a lot of research beforehand. Not only did I love her work, the natural light and the creativity behind her shots, but I found that her being a mom of a 9 month old really contributed her ability to capture what other moms would want in a photograph. Not only that, but she GETS it. Newborn photos are taken within days of your little ones arrival, so it was extremely beneficial to have someone who exuded patience and understanding with you and your family. Courtney took her time and really made sure we were all comfortable along the way. We couldn't be happier with our pictures! We have beautiful memories that we will be able to cherish forever. Thank you, Courtney! We love you!!
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Courtney. As others have mentioned, she is an incredible person and photographer. Her calming energy and kind spirit are comforting and encouraging - even when your little one is literally climbing all over you in your family photo session. She has helped capture memories that my family and I can share for a lifetime. There is no way to fully articulate the gratitude I have for the ways in which she has created space for my family to make and capture memories. Her work is priceless - so is she.
Choosing Courtney Malone Photography for our first child's Newborn pictures was one of the best decisions my husband and I made in preparation for our little girl. To be honest, when the day came for Courtney to come photograph us I started to wonder if I had made the right decision to take newborn pictures just 6 days postpartum but it turns out Courtney was just what I needed that day. Courtney's relaxed and gentle way provided me with the comfort I needed to relax and enjoy that special moment. Courtney captured our new family so perfectly and we will forever cherish the pictures she left us with.
Courtney was great to work with & our newborn lifestyle session was perfect! She kept in touch with us leading up to the birth of our daughter and was very flexible with setting up our session. She is so pleasant to work with and not only do we love our pictures but our family & friends do too! I can't wait to work with her again in the future & have her photos in our home for the years to come.
“As I sit here rocking our newborn back to sleep on our first night home I am overwhelmed by emotions and love (and hormones of course). I didn’t like this picture at first because it was 36 hours after a long induction and a quick 4 minute emergency c-section…not to mention I wasn’t looking my best. But this morning I feel different about it. I am so unbelievably happy, in love and grateful for our healthy newborn and Courtney captured that perfectly. ”
I couldn't say enough good things about Courtney. The pictures she took of our family are absolutely gorgeous, every single photo (and there were A LOT!!) She made every member of our family completely comfortable with her fun and playful personality, posing everyone so perfectly and naturally. Courtney was a joy to work with from beginning to end, and our pictures were turned around so fast. She captured the love and joy we all have for my daughter so beautifully and I am forever grateful to have these pictures. Courtney truly has a gift as an incredibly talented photographer with just the right personality for bringing out the love and happiness in families.
Courtney is an amazing person and photographer! She has taken our family photos several times and each time has captured my kids perfectly. She makes everybody feel very comfortable and knows how to relate to kids. She takes the time to engage them in topics that interest them, which is so helpful! I highly recommend her!!
Working with Courtney was such an incredible experience!! She was such a professional, but also maintained a personable connection that made our newborn session feel so intimate. Our three-year-old son was not at all in the mood to be photographed, but she was incredibly patient and understanding and was somehow still able to get some beautiful shots of all of us. We will definitely be calling Courtney for future family sessions!
My husband and I were so pleased with both the experience of working with Courtney and the resulting images. Courtney came to our home for a newborn session. She totally gets how intense those early days with a newborn can be. Her warmth and kindness allowed her to enter that intimate setting and capture our family at ease. She had the pictures edited and back to us in a timely manner and the results exceeded our expectations. We look forward to having Courtney document more of our family moments!
