...a lifestyle family, newborn and portrait photographer. My husband Jim and I live in Greenville, South Carolina with our puppy, Eddie, our daughter, James, who was born in November of 2016, and our son, Riley, who joined us in August of 2019.
My own journey into motherhood inspires my work and dedication to documenting the beauty of family every single day. I photograph the families that invite me into their lives in the same way I photograph my own; with love, passion, and attention to the tiny details and split seconds that we wish we could relive again and again. Each image is infused with story and purpose, and rich in the love that binds your family together.
It is my hope that the photographs from your session capture the essence and sweetness of who your family is in that exact moment. That upon looking at your images 20 years from now, you'll instantly smell the sweetness of your newborn's skin, you'll feel the weight and warmth of holding your toddler in your arms, and you'll feel the simultaneous pride and tug at the heartstrings of watching your child achieve their newest milestone. These are the things that we'll want to remember, and I'm so honored to document them for you.
Thank you for trusting me with the immense responsibility of documenting your family story. I can’t wait to meet you.
and growing quickly!

We had such an incredible experience with Courtney! We utilized her for our newborn photos and I did a lot of research beforehand. Not only did I love her work, the natural light and the creativity behind her shots, but I found that her being a mom of a 9 month old really contributed her ability to capture what other moms would want in a photograph. Not only that, but she GETS it. Newborn photos are taken within days of your little ones arrival, so it was extremely beneficial to have someone who exuded patience and understanding with you and your family. Courtney took her time and really made sure we were all comfortable along the way. We couldn't be happier with our pictures! We have beautiful memories that we will be able to cherish forever. Thank you, Courtney! We love you!!
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Courtney. As others have mentioned, she is an incredible person and photographer. 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
Choosing Courtney Malone Photography for our first child's Newborn pictures was one of the best decisions my husband and I made in preparation for our little girl. To be honest, when the day came for Courtney to come photograph us I started to wonder if I had made the right decision to take newborn pictures just 6 days postpartum but it turns out Courtney was just what I needed that day. Courtney's relaxed and gentle way provided me with the comfort I needed to relax and enjoy that special moment. Courtney captured our new family so perfectly and we will forever cherish the pictures she left us with.
In one short hour with two WILD toddler boys, she captured the most incredible moments and sweet faces. Courtney is such a calming and professional force. I am in love with the photos she took, and I will undoubtably use her to capture all of our future family moments.
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, and our pictures were turned around so fast. 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
Working with Courtney was such an incredible experience!! She was such a professional, but also maintained a personable connection that made our newborn session feel so intimate. Our three-year-old son was not at all in the mood to be photographed, but she was incredibly patient and understanding and was somehow still able to get some beautiful shots of all of us. We will definitely be calling Courtney for future family sessions!
It is my greatest passion to document growing families from birth and beyond. I can't wait to meet you soon!
