Behind the Lens

I'm a lover or all things light and bright who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection in a simple, timeless, beautiful way.

say hello

I'm Courtney

...a lifestyle family, newborn and portrait photographer. My husband Jim and I live in Greenville, South Carolina with our puppy, Eddie, our daughter, James, who was born in November of 2016, and our son, Riley, who joined us in August of 2019.

My own journey into motherhood inspires my work and dedication to documenting the beauty of family every single day. I photograph the families that invite me into their lives in the same way I photograph my own; with love, passion, and attention to the tiny details and split seconds that we wish we could relive again and again. Each image is infused with story and purpose, and rich in the love that binds your family together. 

It is my hope that the photographs from your session capture the essence and sweetness of who your family is in that exact moment. That upon looking at your images 20 years from now, you'll instantly smell the sweetness of your newborn's skin, you'll feel the weight and warmth of holding your toddler in your arms, and you'll feel the simultaneous pride and tug at the heartstrings of watching your child achieve their newest milestone. These are the things that we'll want to remember, and I'm so honored to document them for you.   
Thank you for trusting me with the immense responsibility of documenting your family story. I can’t wait to meet you. 

Mom of two, lover of light,  travel, and capturing the beauty of every day life.

my favorite things:


being a mom

My daughter, James, is 5, and my son Riley is 3! They keep me on my toes every single day, in the very best way.



Our family loves to travel together - it's a toss up as to our favorite between the beach or the mountains!



I took up sewing as a hobby in 2020, and have made over 50 garments for my kids, including this sweet little Jon Jon.



I started doing portraits by total accident in 2018, and as they say, the rest is history. I love creating these works of art!


My husband

This guy. My husband, Jim. Believe it or not, he's as hilarious as he is handsome.



I'm a sucker for details - these little hands and feet were inside mama's belly just one week before. I'll never get over that!
