Your Investment

Thank you for considering Courtney Marie Photography! 

When you hire a personal photographer, you are making an investment in your family. Photographs are one of the few things in life that last and only increase in value as time goes by. My purpose in this business is to help you capture those memories as beautiful pieces of art. Although we may only spend 1-2 hours during the actual shoot, I typically spend 4-8 hours on editing and processing for a mere 10-15 photos. And, as any photographer will tell you, sometimes it takes 100 pictures to get that one "perfect" shot.

Space is VERY limited! A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking, and is not refundable if cancellations are made within 48 hours of the originally scheduled date. Of course, I will be glad to reschedule for poor weather conditions.

All packages include color digital copies of your high-resolution images and print release form. Each color image will also be edited in black and white so you will actually get double the number of photos. You will be able to print these photos up to sizes 8x10- and will be able to get them printed at my cost without any additional charges. Please inquire about larger print sizes prior to your session.

If you have any questions, please contact me at

$100 Maternity- 30 minutes, 1 location, 5-10 edited color photos. This is for mom and/or dad only. If there are young children, this extends the time it will take, and therefore please refer to the Family Photo Session fees and information above!

$300 Newborns- 2-5 hour shoot, 15-20 edited color photos. I prefer to do these in your home, where you have access to the things you need, and baby is as comfortable as possible! Includes plenty of time for breaks, feeding, and cleaning up little (or big!) messes! 

$200 My First Year Sessions- 1-2 hours, 1 location, 10-15 edited color photos each session. These sessions focus on the child, although I do try to get a few shots with the parents/siblings if requested. These photos turn out the best when taken at the "smiling" (2 months), "neck supporting" (4 months), "sitting" (8 months), and "standing" (12 months) age groups.
