Studio sessions are a way to celebrate the pure and simply beauty of your brand new baby. This space allows us to capture the beautiful details of your newborn, and the qualities that make them uniquely them in a pure and simple way. Each baby is photographed on a pure white backdrop, allowing those precious features to shine through. The studio is located in the heart of Greenville, just a few miles from downtown, and is available for stand alone sessions, as well as in addition to a lifestyle session.
All Courtney Malone Photography sessions include an online gallery of your images, with complete access to easily download, share and print all of your professionally edited, high-resolution images, as well as a print release. We offer "all inclusive" pricing, so that every family goes home with their complete story and all session images. I also offer carefully curated heirloom albums and professional album design services, as well as deckled edge prints to transform your images into tangible treasures.

Sessions are ideally scheduled between 5 and 12 days of life, so that baby is still nice and sleepy for our session! Since studio sessions require a little more sleepiness, they take place on a tighter timeline than in home lifestyle sessions.
Sessions begin each weekday around 10am, as babies are usually happiest in the morning hours!
Most of my mamas book their newborn sessions early in their second trimester! This helps me ensure I plan my schedule appropriately, and have plenty of availability around your due date. I take on just 5 newborns a month, and have been known to book many months in advance! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you are interested in a session!
Once your due date is reserved on the calendar, you'll just plan to send me a note that baby has arrived as soon as you can! Ideally, you'll let me know baby is here while you are still in the hospital. I'll then respond with my current availability to bring you guys in!
Most of my sessions take place in the early mornings or evenings Monday-Thursday, with weekend time reserved for my own family. I do offer limited weekend availability at a premium rate, if a weekday just doesn't work for your family. Like most other jobs, I try to do most of my work during the weekdays, and reserve weekends for personal time with my husband and daughter.
This is such a wonderful question, and one I love to answer openly and honestly. Just like every relationship in life, you connect with some people more than others. My recommendation is to do your homework. Explore your options, study the work of your potential photographers. Do you resonate with the stylistic look and feel of the photographers work (i.e., a bright and classic style, or perhaps a darker moody style)? Do you resonate with the emotions and feelings captured in the images? Do you resonate with the photographer’s about page and the factors that inspire their work? These are important things to consider when choosing your photographer, because it is important that they can invoke connection and feeling to capture your truest, most authentic self.
Studio newborn sessions include my time and talent for your session, artistic editing of your final images, and an online gallery with print release. We believe that all of your images should go home with you to be enjoyed again and again, and offer all inclusive pricing.
