Ruston Louisiana Family and newborn Photographer

For busy mamas who want to preserve the most precious moments of their lives

Ruston Louisiana Newborn Photographer

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

Ruston Louisiana Baby Photographer


As a mama myself, I know how fleeting this time truly is. The saying feels oh-so-true, you blink and they are grown. The age old question has always been, how do you make time stand still?? I have an answer- photographs! Documenting this incredibly special time is what makes time stand still. This time is precious and fleeting. There's nothing more valuable than your most precious memories preserved.

Love Notes

“Courtney did these pictures of my baby at a very trying time of my life. My mother had just passed away right after I gave birth to my son. She came to the house, set up, and worked around us. She’s amazing, patient, and professional! I would not have had these if it weren’t for her and they are priceless to me. God bless you, Courtney, for capturing my beautiful baby!”

—Christina

“I love my photos from Courtney! I lover her editing style and she is patient with kids.”
