I’m a bi-coastal photographer, from CA to PA, and fan of unposed, giddy-in-love, melt-my-lenses-editorial-style moments … oh, and a t-shirts and jeans.

As the cooler fall weather rolls in, these two had no problem cuddling up for a romantic session in the forest with a surprise ending.

Woodsy Engagement Session

Thirteen years ago I slung a camera strap around my neck, and I’ve been capturing moments and memories that will be cherished for generations to come ever since. My goal? Put you at ease in front of the camera and document what matters and giving you something timeless in a fleeting world.

Hi, I'm Courtney

A trend I’m seeing a lot in the past few years is families booking extended family sessions. Many times, the last portrait you have of your entire family is from a wedding. This family shared that same story and they decided to change that while enjoying a beautiful day together in Tahoe. Including extended family […]

The Rife Family Extended Family Session

Family

  The winter “off season” means a slowed pace and more time for exploring. This place, Lake Tahoe, is one of the most photographed locations on the planet for a reason. That’s a made up claim – I’m simply going by the amount of people pulled over taking pictures any time I’m driving. There are a lot!  […]

Me, Myself & I

If this session doesn’t make you smile, you need to go do some soul searching. When I arrive to a newborn shoot, there are a few loose plans but really, I like to let things just happen. This was a slam dunk example of how letting big sister do her thing and jump in when […]

The Burckhard Family Newborn Session

Family

  Nesting at home during those early days with a newborn is a precious and fleeting period of time. The freshly made nursery, awaiting baby’s arrival. The sweet decor that, let’s be honest, is really for us mom’s to have as a sanctuary of baby love. The Hoffman’s brought baby #2 home and this is […]

At Home Newborn Session

    Heaven gained another angel and it’s with a heavy heart that I post this. A single mom to two wonderful girls, Sarah Herndon remained positive and such a bright light of hope in her four year battle with cancer. Sarah’s girls need our help now, as they push forward in their new normal, […]

Portraits for Sarah’s Girls

Family

If you’ve browsed my website, you’ll recognize these two! It’s always exciting to get word that a past bride and groom are expecting. Especially when Sarah is a member of a family I’ve been photographing for years. I realize my ultimate role is to take pictures, but these are such intimate and historic moments in […]

At Home Newborn Session in Reno, Nevada

Family

  It’s pretty awesome what is possible in 15 minutes. For me, it’s a great exercise in efficiency. For families, it’s a fast-paced way to get an easy update. When the kiddos are this sweet and happy, it’s surely a win-win! Every fall I offer 10-15 minute mini-sessions for the upcoming holiday season. Feel free […]

The Rahe Family has been in my world since 2009, when we met about their wedding and we quickly found we had way more in common than we had thought! Cindy, an uber- creative baker extraordinaire, is also the talent behind www.hungrygirlporvida.com, a blog with many drool-worthy recipes and imagery to match! She was an […]

Lake Tahoe Autumn Family Session

Family

The Burtons wanted one last session in the Sierra Mountains before they made their big move north to Oregon. I’ve been along for many new chapters in their life, from Bridget and Scott’s engagement in 2008 to the family portraits as their posse grew. Each time produces images so genuine to who they are and […]
