Hello!!

I’m Cortney!

A wife.

A mama to one boy and three girls.

Here is a quick overview of a dozen things I care to share. I am a maker of lists and I am also a loser of lists. I often find myself forgetting to share personal photos with family and friends. I love giving birth, photographing birth and like to think of myself as a birth advocate. I love Best Bottom cloth diapers, you might even say it’s a bit of an addiction. I support breastfeeding and think it is beautiful. I love being a stay at home mom and look forward to continuing doing so pretty much full time until my 4th starts kindergarten. Family is super important to me and I’m lucky that I have grammas, aunts, cousins and my mom living in the valley. I’m mostly an introvert but I love the perfect social setting where I don’t feel out of place. I don’t drink coffee or wine (gasp, really!) but I do love a creamy vanilla chai & love orange juice! I love family adventures in Glacier National Park and surrounding areas, how lucky are we to live in such a beautiful place!? If you find me out and about at Super 1 or Target, don’t be surprised to find me in sweatpants and a hoodie! I love Disney movies so much, I don’t know if I could choose a top favorite but I do always watch Maleficent while editing!

I’m a photographer.

A story teller.

A preserver of moments.

It all started in 2010 when I became pregnant with my first child. Pictures became super important to me. Belly photos, birth photos, baby photos, birthdays, holidays, adventures, beach days, everything!

And now a dozen tid-bits about my photographic journey. I’ve loved taking pictures long before I owned an actual camera, disposables were my thing and I seemed to always have one! I got my first camera in 2009 and upgraded to a DSLR in 2012. I am a contributing photographer for the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project and love empowering breastfeeding mamas to feel comfortable feeding their babies when needed without shame. I enjoy learning new skills and growing in my photography knowledge. I love when clients become friends, even if its only on Facebook! My favorite kind of session is fun and sometimes messy, not rushed or forced. I’m not good at social media what so ever but I try sometimes! Repeat clients are the best, I love preserving little moments & watching each family’s growth over the years! My favorite images of you and your family are ones of you connecting, laughing & loving on each other. I still get so excited with each and every inquiry and scheduled session like when I first started. I most enjoy hearing what people have to say about what I capture, I just love feedback (what photographer doesn’t?!) I love setting up my annual photo booth at the “It's All About Our Kids” event and capturing a group breastfeeding photo in celebration of World Breastfeeding Week (& I love when I see the same kids year after year)!
