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.
So my last several posts have been filled with photos of our 7 month old Springerdoodle, and guess what!? This one is no different.
I’m totally obsessed with this little guy, not to mention I just got a new camera and don’t have actual human clients until this weekend, so Eddie has graciously volunteered to be my model as I get to know the new camera a bit more.
We took him to get groomed yesterday, and it was the perfect reason to take some practice shots. I mean… look at him!!! I don’t care who you are… he is adorable.
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!?
We have dedicated our business to capturing the beauty of family and motherhood in every stage of life, and adding birth photography has been a dream and goal for Courtney Malone Photography for a very long time. We are pleased to be offering introductory rates for May and June 2017 due dates.
Logan was the last babe I photographed in the hospital before welcoming my own daughter, and let me just say that after my own hospital experience, I have a new perspective on these precious sessions! Bless you mama’s who let me into such a life changing moment. The days in the hospital are blurry, at times overwhelming, and incredibly exhausting, but the sweetness and that falling in love feeling you have for your new baby are far greater than anything else.
What a humbling experience it has been to become a mother. Being a photographer that documents so much of motherhood and family life has been such an honor and gift to me since my humble beginning in the Fall of 2014, and becoming a mother myself has given me such a new perspective for this little business of mine.
We are excited to kick off the new year with the addition of some new services. First on the list, Newborn Keepsake Videos. These little videos will be recorded during your in-home lifestyle newborn session and capture the essence of those sweet newborn days, with clips of everything from you holding your baby, to those sweet little details of their tiny features.
The Courtney Malone Photography resident elf hopes you had a very Merry Christmas! We are soaking in another week or two of baby snuggles and gearing up for a big year ahead! Look out for some fun announcements for 2017. We’ll be offering a new suite of services to add to our existing love of all things newborns, kids, and families and can’t wait to meet you very soon!
Gosh, I love this family. Not only have I been photographing them since the humble beginning of Courtney Malone Photography, but they are very dear friends, who have become more like family to us.
In celebration of the fact that it is BABY MONTH and that we are officially full term at 37 weeks, I wanted to share a tour of our baby girl’s little nursery. I have had so much fun putting this room together, and often find myself just standing in the room admiring her little things, and soaking in the smell of Dreft and fresh diapers. Gosh, those smells are just so good.
On a gorgeous early fall day, I met the Fackler family at Furman for some fall photos and time spent exploring the grounds of the gorgeous campus. I love this spot for photographs, and since dad is an alumni AND works for the university, it has extra special meaning to this family of four.
