Love Notes from Past Clients

"Courtney made us feel comfortable taking all the photos and did an amazing job capturing our big day!! Our friends and family said Courtney was friendly, kind, made them feel comfortable, and was great at organizing the chaos of a huge family.
Courtney caught some moments that we didn't even realize she got and those are some of our favorite pictures!" - Cheyenne

Xo, Courtney

My most cherished role, however, is being a mama to two incredible kiddos, Clara and Archer, aged 5 and 1. I've fully embraced the joys and challenges of being a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) while simultaneously donning the entrepreneur's hat. Yes, I proudly embrace the title of 'boss b*tch,' and it fuels my drive to excel in all aspects of life.

As much as I adore my role as a mom and entrepreneur, I have an insatiable wanderlust. Travel is my muse, and I've explored the enchanting landscapes of Alaska, the vibrant energy of NYC, the serene beauty of Maine, the tropical paradise of the Dominican Republic and Mexico, the rich culture of Japan, and the romantic vistas of Italy.
