I want you to feel
welcome just as you are—
messy, imperfect, flawed,
or perfectly put together.

At the end of the day you see the beauty in the mess and the significance of the moments that you feel like you are just surviving. This is the beautifully messy, authentically perfect life that
you once dreamed of.

Life is messy. Emotions are raw. Parenting is hard, marriage is work and the monotony of day-to-day life is exhausting. Yet, these middle moments are the ones that make a life. They’re the ones we want to remember and seek to capture as best we can with our phones.

At the end of your lifetime, these are the moments that you’ll want to remember. Whether you’re beginning life or in the trenches of toddlerhood, your authentically beautiful life is a story worth capturing.

YOU GET ONE LIFE...EVERY DETAIL IS WORTH CAPTURING.

I drove 500 miles just to let Courtney take my Senior portraits. BEST decision ever! It was
almost impossible to decide which ones to print and frame. I love them all!"

"best choice ever!"

When I first saw our photos, I cried. I couldn’t believe how perfectly she captured our family
and the excitement of having our second child. These photos are priceless."

"priceless!"

Lauren, Family session

"Working with Courtney was a breeze. She was able to capture actual smiles from my boys
without having to bribe them! Our photos look amazing hanging in our hallway."

"SIMPLY AMAZING."

Whatever your story plain portraiture is out and you deserve to look & feel fantastic!

As a mama of three and a wife of almost 13 years, I know how mundane and exhausting the hours can become. Sometimes, you look around and start to believe that there’s nothing of any real significance happening under your roof other than the exhaustion setting in. I get it, mama. Let me come show you just how beautiful and how remarkable your story—your life—truly is.

Your life, your home, your perfectly imperfect story. Sometimes it just takes an outside perspective to help you see that you’re life and all of its quirkiness, messiness, and upheaval is perfect
just the way that it is. These are the moments that you’ll miss; this is the legacy you’ll leave behind. Let’s capture it in all of its beauty.

day-in-the-life sessions

Too often we think that “adventures” need to happen in faraway places with an exorbitant budget when in reality, the adventure is already happening around you. Even the simplest moments can bring the biggest adventure.

Setting up a tent for a weekend campout, intense rounds of family UNO matches, a trip downtown for Ice Cream cones., or the excitement surrounding that new puppy your kids have always wanted—no matter the moment, there’s a story there that's worth telling.

Everyone loves a good portrait, but who says that portraiture has to look like something from the 90’s Sears catalog or include Khaki pants and white button-downs?

What will our session be like? What can I expect?

Created by potrace 1.15, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2017

Wait, you’re not going to tell me how to pose at all?! That makes me a little uncomfortable!

I can completely understand that. It can feel awkward to just “be yourself” while someone is pointing a camera at you and taking your picture. It’s our second nature to turn and smile for the camera. My job—my goal—is to make sure that you not only feel comfortable but that you also have the chance to be authentically you. 

I want you..to be  authentically you!

That's completely up to you! My mantra is to keep it authentic. Be you—busy, chaotically, creative you. Whatever you decide, you won’t get any judgment from me. As a mom of three kids and a dog? I assure you I know what a messy house, a “lived in” house, and a home filled with love look like.

your home should represent you.
