This beautiful family of five met me in downtown Greenville for their lifestyle family photo session on a warm summer night! These three might be the sweetest, most loving siblings I’ve ever met. I’ve always had a soft spot for families of 5 – I’m certain it’s so much work, but dang – look at […]

Sweet little Everett, it’s been an […]

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 […]

It’s always a little nerve wrecking when you are asked by another talented photographer to document their family! Jenn is an incredibly talented wedding photographer here in Greenville, so when she asked me to photograph her growing family, I was so honored.

I had the best time at the First Annual Courtney Malone Photography pajama mini sessions! So many sweet little faces came out to see me, have some cookies, read a Christmas story and listen to their favorite Christmas tunes.
