For lack of a better title!

I apologize for the lack of updates lately friends!

You see, the world of photography has been a little slow these past couple of weeks. I do, however, have a few photo sessions scheduled for after Christmas. One maternity session, one engagement session, and another infant session. I’m SUPER stoked. 

I’ve been fairly busy though. 

{and expect holiday baking pictures this weekend!}

Now, lets get to what I really wanted to write to you about today. 

I thought to myself; “hey, you’ve posted a lot of your work for the lovely people to see, but you’ve not spent much time talking about who you are as a person and what makes you tick.”

So I want to share a little bit about who I am with you. Ready? 

Hi, my name is Courtney. 

I was born and raised in the second biggest city in Indiana and have lived there for pretty much my whole life. Give or take a few years in another city (but who’s counting right?). I’m a full time lead teacher for one year olds even though all the kids in my classroom are 2. It’s a busy job. But I very much enjoy it and have been for almost 5 years now. (Which reminds me, I’m 24 years old).  

My biggest passion in life is photography. I discovered it on accident one day by tilting my little point and shoot camera ever so slightly and falling i n l o v e with how the photo looked once I uploaded it onto my computer. After that, I took tons and tons of pictures of landscapes and flowers and objects that didn’t move very much. One day, I decided I should practice taking pictures of people if I wanted to become a photographer one day. I called up my longest high school friend Kari and asked her to model for me. After that, I took photography more seriously and practiced and practiced. Now, 5 years later, my little hobby is still my #1 passion and dream job. 

I’m the oldest of my siblings; I have two brothers ( yes, I’m sorry for me too!), and my parents are still happily married (20 something years now). We’re all so very different. I’m the artsy one, the middle kid is going to be a lawyer, and the youngest right now is obsessed with space. Out of everyone in my family, I’m the only that doesn’t play video games like it’s my job. (Hey, everyone has to have a hobby….it’s just not mine!)  They’re crazy people, but I love them very much. 

Photography isn’t the only thing that I love. Let me compile a little list (which I LOVE to make) to give you a better insight on the things that draw my attention and make me who I am.

As silly as this sounds, if you have questions to ask me, seriously, go for it. I love meeting and talking to new people! It makes life worthwhile. 

For now I’m going to take off. Maybe pin some things on pinterest for a bit before laying out my game plan for baking tomorrow! 

Have a wonderful night!
