I'm Kourtni, your friendly neighborhood photographer, movie buff, baby whisperer, Diet Dr. Pepper junkie, and mom to 4 crazy kids.  As a fellow mom in the trenches, I TOTALLY get how stressful family pictures can be. 

And that's why I've got you, my friend.  I'll give you all the tools you need before your session so you can actually ENJOY your favorite people during your session!  I'll play with your kiddos, share a snack with your toddler, and I MIGHT even get your husband to smile... for real.

My advice for each session is to "LIVE IN THE MOMENT."  Because those little moments -- the hugs, cuddles, giggles, and tickles -- are actually the big moments in this thing called life.

I would love to capture your family's moments {big or little} so you can cherish them for a lifetime.

A Fresh 48 is the perfect way to announce your little one's arrival!  This session takes place within 48 hours of baby's birth, typically at your hospital or birthing center. It focuses on baby, but I love when Mom and Dad get in the shots too! A Sneak Peek photo will be texted to you within 24 hours of your session to share with friends + family!
