It’s been a wonderful year of following sweet Jack, and SURPRISE, he’s going to be a big brother very soon! This sweet boy has turned into the most precious toddler and I’ve loved following along for his newborn, 6 month and now one year session. Can’t wait to find out if he is going to […]

I’ve had the privilege of photographing this family two years in a row now, and they are a fun crew! Little Miss Lawson is all things a little girl should be – sweet but spunky! She has quite the personality and I had so much fun with her. You’ll notice that Lawson has her bunny […]

I met the Wheelers this past December for their first officialy photoshoot as a family of three! I about passed out when they pulled little Miss Gracie out of the car. Can you guys even believe that full head of gorgeous blonde hair!? And those blue eyes? I seriously could not get enough of this […]

It’s no secret that I am a huge lover of all things holiday and Christmas! If my husband would let me, I would have decorated our house weeks ago! To celebrate my favorite season of the year, I’m hosting a festive and fun morning of Christmas Jammie Mini Sessions! We’ll have cookies, Christmas music, and […]

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.

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.

I’ve had the privilege to photograph the Geppi family a few times, starting last year when they were just a few months pregnant, to maternity photos this Spring, and now with their 5 month old son William! We did their maternity photos at a cute little park that is right in front of their home, and did some shots in front of their house as well, and we revisited that same spot to get some quick Fall photos of their growing family!

This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous. There is nothing better than those first few days of fall when the air is cool, the mornings are crisp, and the changing of the seasons is upon us. Fall is absolutely my favorite season, and I am just so glad it’s here.

I got to enjoy the amazing weather we had this past weekend out at the Furman Rose Garden with Laura Anne and her boys Lee and Will. We spent some time exploring the garden, then went to see the ducks down by the water! The dreamy light and colors in their photographs are a major reason why I love this time of year. Aren’t they gorgeous?

I spent one of the last few Summer evenings of the year in downtown’s Falls Park with the Rickman’s last week, and we had so much fun exploring with Callie (4) and Ellie (2). These sisters are so darn sweet to each other, and were all about giving hugs and admiring the flowers together as we made our way through the park. 

While I am SO excited for Fall and all it brings (hello pumpkin everything, gorgeous light and leaves, and oh… the arrival of our baby!), it was so fun to get in one more session in the summer sunlight. Aren’t these guys gorgeous!? I think so too!

This is the second year I’ve been able to document the Warfield family, and my goodness how sweet it has been to watch Emerson grow!! She was just a tiny little babe at our shoot last Fall, and I can vividly remember our mid-session Cheerio break at last year’s session. She was very happy to share with everyone! If last year’s session was the “Year of the Cheerio” this year was the “Year of the Swinging Between Mom and Dad.” So sweet!

This sweet baby girl turned one this past weekend and we had so much fun celebrating. Blake was SUPPOSED to be a September baby, but made her debut 5 weeks early. She has had quite the year, and is thriving and growing right on track. I’ve had so much fun photographing her since day one!

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to photograph Keenan’s first birthday, and now just a few months later I was invited back into their home to document the first few days of the newest family addition, baby Henry, in all of his 5 day old goodness. Kasia and her family are moving out of […]
