A Glimpse Into The CDP Experience


At CDP, an amazing experience and high quality images is our top priority. We have studied lighting from some of the industry's leading educators and feel truly confident in our ability to produce gorgeous images for your family. We also strive to give you the incredible service that you are deserving of and hope that by the end of our time together we've become friends. We love serving joyful families with patience and care all while making you feel comfortable and at ease.

From the very beginning, it's our goal to make you feel heard and understood. We have client resources available to help you with outfit planning as well as in depth guidance in our welcome guides! We also have pinterest boards at the ready for outfit and hair inspiration! We know that planning a session can be tricky, but we are her for you!

Once our session arrives, we can really start to have a blast together! No need to worry about fussy or hyperactive kiddos. It's completely normal for them to feel uncomfortable with someone new but we make it a point to get on their level and become their friend.

We will coach you and your family through poses and give plenty of direction so that you are never wondering what to do next!

Once your images are edited and finalized you'll receive a beautiful gallery in your email. HAPPY MAIL!!


We are so excited for this opportunity to get to know you and your family and to capture memories that will last a lifetime!


what we offer

Family sessions with CDP are a fun and unique experience. We communicate every step of the way to ensure that our time together is unique to your family and that your images showcase your love and connection. Before your session, you will receive our welcome guide that will walk you through the entire process! Our family sessions are between 1 and 2 hours at a location of yours or our choosing. You will receive 50+ high resolution images on an online gallery with printing rights.


The newborn stage is such a special time and we love photographing it. The soft and tender moments that fade oh so quickly bring us absolute joy. We offer in-home lifestyle sessions lasting around 2 hours. This is important to allow for feedings and getting baby nice and sleepy for their debut. 50 + high resolution images on an online gallery with printing rights. Also included is a complimentary maternity session.



Milestone sessions with CDP are 30-45 minute sessions, making them the perfect package to capture those little moments within the first year of your sweet baby's life. These can also be used to capture new and updated images for your little one's birthdays each year! You'll receive 15-20 high resolution images on an online gallery with printing rights. These are best done at 3 months, sitter sessions (about 6 months), 9 months, and first birthday.

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!”
