Hi there! I’m Courtney…
I am a wife and mom… I have two awesome little girls that have beautifully turned our world upside down. And together, my Husband and I tackle every day by trial and error, grace and a lot of help from our family.
To be perfectly honest, I never would have thought that my fancy little Psychology Degree from Central Washington University would have landed me here as a full-time photographer… but here I am surviving and thriving!
I often describe myself as an extroverted introvert and I think that’s why I love this job! When I’m shooting I get to socialize, have fun conversations and meet new families, but I also get to recharge in my office for hours on end as I edit galleries.
I am self-taught.. Seven years ago I started my business not knowing a dang thing except that I quickly learned I LOVED it. Never did I think I would make a living or be able to support our family. I didn’t know about shooting in manual. Had no idea about aperture, shutter speed, or ISO. I didn’t know what white-balance meant. Studio lighting was about as scary as a bad nightmare. And I had no idea about composition or what different lenses even did. I didn’t know anything about editing programs or any of the hundreds of tools in photoshop. But the one thing that kept me itching for more and a desire to learn was my serious passion for it. And perhaps that’s why my business has grown more than I ever thought possible and why it quickly became an unexpected full-time job. Thank goodness for google, you-tube, and lots and lots of practice. So here I am now, unbelievably blessed and shocked I ever made it.
I would love to connect and get to learn a little bit about you and what brought you here! Let’s connect!
