I was born and raised in northern California. My husband and I eloped (ironically, considering my passion for weddings now) at twenty years old in Sacramento. Eighteen months later we welcomed our first child, an amazing little boy. We've gone on to have three more children - for a total of three boys and a little girl. 

I'm seriously sentimental. I've kept the going home outfits of my children and meticulously documented their lives. Watching them grow is bitter sweet. My heart swells with pride with each new chapter in their lives, while simultaneously longing to keep them little just a little longer. These feelings are why I am so passionate about what I do. My heart is in my work because I know I'm not just taking a snapshot, I'm documenting a family's history.

We used Courtney Nicole Photography for our destination family photos. After researching photographers in the area, I fell in love with her work. We could not be happier with our family pictures! Courtney was great with the kids, knew the area and best spots to get some amazing shots! I highly recommend using Courtney Nicole Photography, we will be using her again for our future sessions!


She's amazing. I found her last minute
on google for a newborn photoshoot. we chose the Newborn full package. My initial plan was to just have photos of baby taken and some with her sibling until she suggested we do a family photo too and I'm so glad she did. I usually feel awkward about my photos being taken but it was so easy going with her! Then of course she was amazing with our newborn. Loved all our photos. Highly recommend
