let's get to know each other

Hey there, I'm Courtney!

As a lifestyle and portrait photographer, living just outside of downtown Pittsburgh, I believe in capturing all of the milestones of motherhood and beyond in a clean, and timeless fashion.

As a mother of four myself, my passion is serving new and seasoned mothers so they can enjoy all of the little moments with their children, to be able to cherish those memories when they've grown and have started a family of their own.

We have 18 summers with our children...and with each one comes a chapter worth documenting.

My passion for providing a stress free portrait experience blossomed when I met Noelle of The Beauty Box. She too has a heart for serving mothers so that they feel and look their most beautiful during their session.

Along with professional hair and makeup, I provide my clients with a fully stocked wardrobe, over 100 dresses for women, wardrobe options for children, and shirts for men. You will save valuable time styling each session.

The Schaffner Family

I have worked with Courtney for many years since a holiday mini with my two babies. Courtney has documented my family as we have grown and changed into a family of 5. With each passing year I have booked more and more sessions. I just can’t get enough of the beautiful images she captures of my tiny humans - growing, changing, interacting, and soaking in simple magical moments of life (welcoming a baby, spinning with Daddy, the holidays). She is relaxed and so easy to work with - no matter how cranky or unco
