Experience

Reviews from our clients, details about our process, and what exactly makes the CMP difference.

"I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Courtney!"

 Her calming energy and kind spirit are comforting and encouraging - even when your little one is literally climbing all over you in your family photo session. She has helped capture memories that my family and I can share for a lifetime. There is no way to fully articulate the gratitude I have for the ways in which she has created space for my family to make and capture memories. Her work is priceless - so is she!

"We had such a wonderful experience with Courtney!"

We had such a wonderful experience with Courtney for our daughter's heirloom portraits. She is genuine, kind, and made us feel right at home during our session. I loved that she was able to capture my daughter's bright personality in less than 10 minutes and was blown away by the images. We can't wait to work with Courtney again when our second is born!

"I loved working with Courtney for my daughter’s heirloom portraits."

I loved working with Courtney for my daughter’s heirloom portraits. She was so patient, kind, and fun. My 2.5 year old loved her too. When leaving she said “Mama me like Courtney.” She wanted to stay and “play” more.

"The pictures she took of our family are absolutely gorgeous!"

I couldn't say enough good things about Courtney. The pictures she took of our family are absolutely gorgeous, every single photo (and there were A LOT!!) She made every member of our family completely comfortable with her fun and playful personality, posing everyone so perfectly and naturally. Courtney was a joy to work with from beginning to end. She captured the love and joy we all have for my daughter so beautifully and I am forever grateful to have these pictures. Courtney truly has a gift as an incredibly talented photographer with just the right personality for bringing out the love and happiness in families.

Frequently asked questions

what is Lifestyle photography?

Lifestyle photography is a style of portraiture that aims to capture images rich in story and emotion. It is people and connection focused, and aims to capture it’s subject as authentically is possible.

What's the best age for portraits?

I recommend ages 1-4 as the most ideal ages for portraits, but have photographed children as young as 9 months, and as old as 12 for these special heirloom pieces!

What types of newborn sessions do you offer?

CMP specializes in studio newborn sessions, as well as in home lifestyle sessions, and on location hospital Fresh 48 sessions. Please inquire for complete details!

where is your studio located?

The CMP Studio is located in the heart of Greenville, SC about 1.5 miles outside of downtown Greenville. We are close to many local restaurants and amenities, and easy to access from I-85.

When should we book our newborn session?

Most families book their newborn session early in their second trimester. This helps me ensure I plan my schedule appropriately, and have plenty of availability around your due date.

What should we wear?

I send all of my clients pre-session detailed planning information, which includes tips for choosing clothing that photographs well, as well as tips for coordinating outfits among your family. 

Do you offer mini sessions?

CMP offers two annual session events - a Mother's Day event in Spring, and a holiday session event in the Fall. These sessions are reserved for past clients as a thank you for investing in the big moments!

When do newborn sessions take place?

Because of the simple and natural style of these sessions, we can capture your new family anytime from birth to three months! My typical recommendation is anytime from one to four weeks after your newborn arrives. There are no “rules,” however, as you often hear about for older babies. It’s never too late to capture this sweet time in your life!
