for family stories, photography for mamas, and reflections on the wild ride of motherhood

Hi, I'm courtney!

I'm so glad you have found your way to my little home on the web. I'm a photographer, graphic designer, and most importantly a mom to a sweet little girl named James. I'm obsessed with newborns. family stories, helping mamas to better learn how to use their cameras to document their own motherhood journeys, and am constantly seeking to understand the wild and crazy ride that is motherhood.

Somehow, someway, our sweet baby girl is 8 months old. 8 months sounds alarmingly close to 12 months, which means that she will be one soon! How can that even be possible!? I’ll be honest, it’s really been only the last two months or so that I truly feel like I am thriving as a […]

Hannah and I went to high school together, and I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her family in their new home on a recent visit to Tampa. Charley is just a handful of weeks older than my James, and he was such a little ham for his photo session.

If someone told me that I had to pick ONE kind of session, and it would be the only one I could conduct for the rest of my life, it would take me about .6 seconds to yell “Fresh 48”, and all the energy I could muster to somehow contain my excitement. This is what […]

Baby Audry might be one of the prettiest babies I have ever met. She was just about a week old when her mama, daddy, and big brother Sammy invited me into their home to document this precious time. I loved everything about her sweet, pink nursery and the way her proud mom and dad admired […]

This family invited me into their brand new home shortly after baby Brooks came home from the hospital. It isn’t always easy to adjust to your new role as a big brother or sister, but big brother Beckett was so loving and affectionate towards his baby brother. It didn’t hurt that he got a chocolate […]

I met this sweet family at last year’s Spring mini sessions, and this March I photographed their newest addition in their home. Among the MANY reasons I love photographing families, watching them grow is at the very top. Watching Emma in her new role as big sister and seeing her interact with “her baby” was […]

This session was given as a baby shower gift to this family, and I just love how thoughtful that is! Baby Cam was born this past January, and was just the sweetest little newborn. His grandmother was there for our session and had so many sweet little hats and clothes for him. You could see […]

On a Tuesday night in February, I eagerly sat at my computer counting down the seconds to 9:00pm when the quarterly registration of The Everyday Film Workshop opened. After finding Emily on Instagram and seeing her real, authentic photographs and films I was so inspired to learn this very special skill. Video has always appealed […]

It’s no secret that I am kind of obsessed with bows for my baby girl. In fact the first few things I bought for her were hair bows (and a pair of gold moccasins – because obviously I knew the essentials!). I’ve tried to put a bow on James every day so that she gets used to wearing them, as I hope she will wear them into her toddler years! There is just nothing sweeter than a baby girl in a little bow!

I had the honor of photographing Miss Isabella Grace at just 5 days old. This session was particularly special to me, because this little babe was present at my own daughters birth just a few months ago. How can that be? Because her mama is the incredibly talented Sabrina Fields, who was our birth photographer for James’ arrival. Isabella was nestled safe in her mamas belly for the 15 hours Sabrina was with us to document her James’ birth – how cool is that!?
