about me.jpg

Hi! I’m Courtney

I’ve always been a nostalgic person, but when I became a mother that feeling of looking back and wanting to savour every moment just intensified. I became obsessed with documenting our everyday life, and all the details in between. My favourite images are the kind that tell a story about the people in them. The kind of images that aren't just pretty and technically perfect, but the kind that make the person looking at them FEEL something.

When I work with your family, it’s about more than just a photography or film session to me. It’s about truly connecting with who you are, listening to your story, and providing you with a film and/or images that breathe life into your memories.

I’m the most inspired by families that are willing to open up and share what’s meaningful to them (no matter how mundane it might seem), and that are absolutely content just hanging out together while I record their memories.

The families that book me tend to choose me for my ability to create beautiful images for them without any pressure to perform or be anything but themselves. They tend to feel a strong connection to their home, to their family, and to the idea of preserving memories and stories that can be handed down to their children and their children's children.

In addition to filming and photographing family life, I'm also a speaker, educator, and mentor to photographers who want to learn the art of family filmmaking over at FilmingLife Academy.

I just have no words. I’m in tears, I knew I should wait until after school drop off to watch our film and thank god I did. I love it so much Courtney thank you!

Courtney’s work is breathtakingly lovely and beautiful! We were lucky enough to have her for a session in our home, and from the moment she stepped through the door she put us all at ease and utterly charmed my toddler! I will treasure the photos she took of us together forever. I can’t thank Courtney enough for documenting these moments and memories for us!
