I'm Courtney. Photographer, mama, wifey, animal-lover, chocolate fanatic, and Salt and Vinegar Chip fiend.
Out of all the photographers out there, what is it that makes me the perfect fit for your family?
I’m the photographer for big-hearted mamas with deep connections to their babes, mamas who are not perfect but are doing their best, mamas who want to tell their story around memories on the wall and a pile of tangible printed photographs that they can feel with their hands, and their hearts. I am a Springfield based Maternity, Newborn and Family Photographer, offering sessions in my Brookwater Studio Space, throughout Brisbane, Gold Coast and beyond.
Photography gives me a great chance to travel around the place. I'm always happy to discuss sessions outside of SEQ, here's a peek at some of my travel plans to see if we could cross paths. This may reduce your travel fee!
October - Coffs Harbour, Byron Bay, Evans Head
December - Sunshine Coast
September - USA
So, There you have it: my reason. I fell in love with photography after the birth of my first child, Daisy. I was given the opportunity (through an ill-timed redundancy haha) to create a new career path for myself and realising how much capturing these fleeting moments with my daughter meant to me, I wanted to do the same for other families.
My approach to photography is filled with connection, natural moments and a candid look. So that you can look back on your photos and remember your children as they were.
I'm hands-on enough during your session that you won't be feeling awkward in front of the camera, but leave plenty of room for the real stuff to come out.
Like anyone else, I can only be in one place at one time! I've had the opportunity to work with other photographers under Blury Photography so that we can keep up with the local demand for heartfelt photography.
When you are booking a session I (Courtney) will discuss who your photographer will be on the day of your session. If you're looking for a specific date and I am unavailable then you may have the opportunity for a session with another one of Blury Photography's incredible photographers. In this instance I will still be preparing you for your session, editing your photos and delivering them to you. You can expect the same level of experience and quality.
I'm a mama of two littles, Gin and Tonic enthusiast and love a good chat, and know my way around a sewing machine like nobody's business.
I'm naturally drawn to raw family moments.
Along with all our Blury Photography photographers, I am a Motherhood Photography specialist and offer family and Newborn sessions in a deliciously gentle and natural way.
My passion for photography started with capturing landscape and emotion, and when I was on Maternity leave I was asked by my friends to create some photos celebrating mother's day, and that is where my love of motherhood and family photography began.
I want families to feel a sense of joy and relaxation after their photos are created. Getting family photos doesn't have to be stressful! I find the best photos happen when a family is simply enjoying their time, and having a laugh.
My favourite moments are when a family forgets I am even there, the space then allows real emotion, laughing, that little look after a child gives mama a kiss on the cheek. It's the little things.
Motherhood means love, we sacrifice so much, yet everyday we turn up for our kids no matter what. That deserves to be celebrated and remembered.
