Gianna & Rocco

These two cuties stopped by the studio a few weeks ago for their holiday portrait.  Mom is owner of Pretty Please Couture, a fabulous boutique in Ft. Lauderdale.  We were able to check out the latest mural in the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project by artist Logan Hicks.  I’m loving the new landscape in the Downtown Hollywood area.  My backdrops are always changing and the inspiration is never ending.

The studio is closed from now until January 4.  We are available by appointment only.  I am currently booking custom portrait sessions both in the studio and on location for January.   Schedule your session for January before the end of 2015 and receive a $100 credit to be used towards your order.

Call the studio or shoot me an email.


See you soon,

Lifestyle family portrait session at a horse ranch?!?  Yes, PLEASE!!!!  Gorgeous location, gorgeous girls, and gorgeous light.  Every image from this family’s custom portrait session was a winner.  These few in particular really make me smile.

See you soon,

Alina & Vin

As I close up the studio for the Thanksgiving holiday, it really gives me time to reflect on all that I’m thankful for.

I just celebrated my 12th wedding anniversary with the most amazing partner in crime.  I have three amazing children that I get to be with everyday both at school and at home and this amazing business that started as just a thought over 8 years ago.  Courtney Studios has given me the opportunity and flexibility to be the best woman, wife, and mother that I could ever imagine.  I’m the luckiest girl in the world and I’m truly blessed.

Sometimes I just have to pinch myself.  I’m “living the dream”.

We will be closed Wednesday 11/25-Friday 11/27.  I’ll be back in the studio on Saturday, 11/28 from 10-3 for “Small Business Saturday”.  Stop by and say hi!  The studio has lots of great gift ideas for everyone on your list.

Remember to support local business this holiday season and “Shop Small.”

I wish you the Happiest of Thanksgivings.

See you soon,

Sisters | South Florida Family Photographer

I’ve been getting out of the studio and shooting outside recently and it honestly feels great to get out and spread my wings a bit.  So I was thrilled to take this family to one of my favorite spots in downtown Hollywood…the roof of the parking garage.

This family is beautiful, fun and really weren’t afraid to let their love shine.

This is the last weekend to to be photographed with guaranteed holiday (Christmas) delivery.  We have two spots available on Sunday.

Please call the studio if you want to snap them up.


See you soon,






Trick or Treat at Courtney Studios

Halloween was a little over two weeks ago, but it’s never too late to share the amazing portraits of the kiddos who came out for our “Trick or Treat to Benefit Mobile School Pantry” event at Courtney Studios.  I am overwhelmed by the participation and support of so many friends in the community.  With your support, we raised enough money to provide a complete Thanksgiving dinner to 10 families in Hollywood.  Together we definitely can make a difference to children in South Florida and say “NO” to hunger.

All my love,

This has been a wonderful journey with this family.  I started photographing them a year ago when they started the “Pick 3:  Your year in pictures” portrait package.  Maternity, newborn, and now  to the first birthday.

Happy Birthday sweet Slade!  Thank you for sharing your birthday with me at Courtney Studios.

See you soon,
