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!”
