It's nice to meet you

Hello! I'm Courtney. I love spending time with my husband and our two cats, watching a good show or exploring Seattle and the other cities around us. In my free time you'll find me editing photos on my laptop, doing yoga, hanging out with my friends and family, or simply chillin' with a beer. My favorite things include: tacos, The Walking Dead, the Snoqualmie River, cats, thrifting, photoshootin', and traveling (even the "sucky" parts like waiting at the airport, I love it all!).

I have been shooting around the Seattle area for over 8 years. With a fine art background, I want to bring another level to my portrait photography: to perfect each and every shoot into a story. I want to give my clients a tangible keepsake of a snippet of time in their lives, an image they can hold onto of their loved one, something that represents who they truly are. Working closely with my team, models, hair and makeup artists, stylists and assistants, I ensure continuity between every element, and I edit the images in a near obsessive way. I strive for connectivity with the creative world, and pushing conceptual boundaries. I have been featured in Dark Beauty Magazine, Avari Magazine, Numinous Magazine, and Obscurae Magazine, featuring work from Julie Danforth Designs, SchaiSchai, Justin Zachary Couture, Sarsen Clothing, Rebels Market, Kate S. Mensah, Leia Beila Jewelry, and more. Collaborating with creative souls around me is my passion.
