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. The best part about this day is that we were able to sponsor three children in […]

Gosh, you guys. This year has been so good to me. When the year started, I was still on maternity leave, still employed at my corporate job, and still VERY much in the thick of the newborn fog after the birth of my own daughter, James, back in November of 2016. I went back to […]

I feel like I say this with every session, but this evening was seriously so much fun with this family!

The lighting was just about perfect for my evening in Falls Park with this sweet family! Our lifestyle family photo session was so sweet, as we played with and captured all the sweet details of Marion at almost 9 months old. Downtown Greenville makes such a lovely backdrop for creating precious family memories!

Luke was such a trooper for his 6 month session, and had the BEST little expressions I’ve ever seen. He was so dang sweet, and is the perfect example of why I LOVE this age. Just look at him! So precious!

This sweet couple is waiting on their baby girl to arrive any day now! This brave mama met me at about 37 weeks pregnant on a warm (okay, hot!) summer day in Falls Park so that we could document this baby girl in her belly, and it was worth the heat! The park is so […]

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.
