Hi friend, I'm Courtney. Thanks for stopping by!
I'm a twenty-something mama from Plain City, OH and what started out as a hobby, capturing daily photos of my two kiddos (Rowan David and Lyla Belle), has turned into so much more! I could not be more grateful to God for the direction He has taken me.
Photography sets my soul on fire. I love the creativity. I love getting to know new people. I love capturing moments that are meant to be captured, but often aren't. And I'm still having that *pinch me* feeling that I get to have this much fun "working." I was a teacher before deciding to quit my job to stay home and raise my babies, and pursue photography. I absolutely love that I can still work with kiddos and use my creative side in a different way!
“Your photographer will probably capture the last best photo of someone you really care about. They'll be thinking that with every click of the shutter. How precious life is and how precious it is to be able to give someone this gift.”
Why invest in me?
As I get older, I cherish photos more and more—especially as a mama. We spend money on so many things that fade: toys, clothes, shoes, cars...the list goes on. But as I get older I realize I need to start investing my money and time into things that truly matter...my family and my relationships. Getting photos done--whether it be engagement photos, family photos, milestone photos, you name it--captures precious moments in time...ones you will never ever get back. The missing teeth, silly smiles, a fresh new baby, an aging grandparent. A lot can change in a year and I will always cherish my photos that I have...to look back on, tell stories about, and show to my babies who may not remember what all went on when they were younger, or a family member who is no longer with us. Photos are so much more important than we may realize and I would be honored to capture these special moments in time for you!
“We had such a great afternoon with you! I think this is one of the only times I’ve been comfortable in front of a camera, and I have you to thank for it! We love these photos, and will definitely be in touch for more whenever we consider family photos.”
I could eat tacos with chips and queso for the rest of my life!
Aside from photography, I love homemaking. I enjoy making a space--outside and inside-- that our family truly looks forward to coming home to. I want it to be a safe haven from the outside world.
I lived in New Zealand for a short time and student taught at an all-boys middle school!
dream photoshoot location?
In a peaceful garden or any place there's mountains.
favorite place in ohio?
Slate Run Historical Farm
Ahhh I have so many favorites depending on what genre I'm in the mood for. BUT if I have to choose one to watch over and over it would have to be Legally Blonde. I mean who doesn't love Elle Woods?!
