"Five stars just doesn't do Courtney justice."
The McCormick family
The journey to bringing home your baby is my favorite thing to photograph. From pregnancy, to the hospital and finally home, I offer lifestyle sessions that capture this precious and fleeting time in a natural and authentic way.
Courtney is amazing! The photos are positively perfect!
The schaeffer family
your growing little one
The images from your studio session are intended to help you capture and savor the tiny details that makes your little one uniquely them - so very perfect in every single way. By minimizing distractions and maintaining a simple, authentic approach, the result is beautiful, timeless images that will stand the test of time.
The CMP Experience
At CMP, it's our goal to make every session stress free - from a low pressure, playful session environment to premium services like complimentary wardrobe items for moms, and premium options like hair and make up. It's our goal to make session day as enjoyable and as easy as possible!
"Courtney was absolutely incredible to work with."
The tollison family
We arrived with both kids crying and I just knew the session wasn’t going to go well. Courtney was so kind and patient and made my 2 year old feel comfortable almost immediately. She also had the magic touch with my newborn. She made the entire experience stress free. I can’t believe how many great photos she was able to capture. We will treasure them forever!
All sessions, except for in home newborn or Fresh 48 newborn sessions, take place in the beautiful, newly renovated 400 sq. foot CMP studio. Every detail of this space was planned to offer beautiful natural light and modern comforts, making the perfect backdrop for your session.
"We had such an incredible experience with Courtney!"
The MItchell Family
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!!
is unique to you
Every family's story is unique and beauitful. Our focus at CMP is capturing the connection, joy and love of your family, free of distractions like props and elaborate sets. Our philosophy is that pure and simple will never go out of style, and every image is created with capturing connection in mind.
Lifestyle newborn photography captures the precious miracle that is bringing your baby home. It creates tangible memories of those first few days, captures the detail of the room you’ve so lovingly prepared for them, and shows how tiny they are in your arms. My approach is family focused, using natural elements of your home as the most perfect and natural backdrop for capturing memories.
I love studio newborn work, and take a unique approach to creating timeless, natural newborn portraits. Using a pure white backdrop and a white swaddle wrap, I let baby lead the way. My philosophy is that it doesn’t take anything more than your baby to create a beautiful newborn portrait, and I use this philosophy to create timeless, pure and beautifully simple images of your baby in their natural state.
Hospital sessions, also known as "fresh 48" sessions, capture the sweet and fleeting first hours of your baby's life in a beautiful, artful way. These sessions take place while you are still in the hospital during the first 48 hours of life. These sessions are available at Greenville Memorial Hospital and Patewood Memorial Hospital, pending the lifting of restrictions on visitors due to COVID-19.
