Courtney was great, informative and skilled with her eye for shots and producing amazing work. We were lucky to work with her and hope others do too. She is easy going without being annoying or cheesy, she's smart being mindful of light, poses and capturing the moment.Aug 30, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have packages in tiers, which I will discuss with clients individually, but my rates are extremely competitive and my customer service is superior. In the end I believe the client will feel it was money very well spent.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always have a pre-session consultation, so we can discuss what they want out of the session. I also guide them with regards to clothing choices, to make sure we get the best photo possible. On my most recent session, the mother of a newborn didn't have time to prepare them home they way they wanted to. They were a little busy!! It was a lifestyle newborn session. I came in and decided where I wanted to shoot and then we pulled items from other rooms to create the scene. This is one of the added benefits of a film and television producer as your photographer. I have dressed sets MANY times, and can work with just about any location.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been a Television Producer for a decade, which included Directing and Art Direction. Since I have decided to start my photography business, I have taken many classes with pro photographers on Newborn Safety, Posing, Photographing Children and babies. Some of my mentors/teachers are Emily Lucarz, Elena S. Blair & Tamara Lackey. I am truly being taught by the best in the biz! I also have a two year old daughter, who has been my test model & muse since birth, and now as a toddler, is teaching me how to photograph one of the most difficult age groups! I am not intimidated when it comes to photographing toddlers, they have quickly become my favorite subjects. They may move around a lot, but they are such a joy to shoot, because they are so expressive and inquisitive, which leads to really adorable photos.
