Hi, I'm Courtney.
I'm so glad you have found your way to my little home on the web. I'm a photographer, graphic designer, and most importantly a mom to two sweet kiddos. I'm obsessed with newborns. family stories, helping mamas to better learn how to use their cameras to document their own motherhood journeys, and am constantly seeking to understand the wild and crazy ride that is motherhood.

How to Achieve Light and Airy Indoor Light Every Time

October 24, 2023

This video is for you if you are a lifestyle newborn photographer that LOVES light and airy light indoors – but you can’t always figure out exactly how to achieve that look! In this video, I’m going over three basic lighting principles that create that beautiful, light and airy light that flatters skin tones and perfectly illuminates your subjects. My teaching philosphy is this – if you have a repeatable system, there’s no way to mess it up! Step by step processes are key for setting yourself up for success and achieving a consistent look. If you know exactly how to identify the light you love and troubleshoot it right out of the gate, you will ALWAYS get the look you want.

Check out my video below! If you want MORE lighting help, or struggle with inconsistent light on location in your clients homes, I’d love to help you conquer that as well, and we do just that in my signature course, The Lifestyle Lighting Framework. You can learn more about the course here!
