New Albany Children’s Photography: Glitter

August 5th, 2013

After my senior session a few months ago where we used glitter, I wanted to do something in the studio with it.  Luckily, I had a couple girlies who were willing to play! I think what made these sessions so fun, is the girls were so excited to just play with the glitter. For girly-girls, these sessions are heaven. They get to dress up and be frilly, and then play with glitter. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Ready to schedule your daughter’s (or yours??) glitter session? Visit the contact me page or send an email to Courtney(at)CourtneyParisPhotography.com


New Albany Portrait Photography: A BFF Sesh(ion) ;-)

August 2nd, 2013

A few years ago, a cousin called with a picture idea. Some of her friends were coming in town and a group of them, who had been friends since high school, were turning 40 that year. She wanted to set up an appt to get some pictures of all of them together, since one lived far away. Umm yes, what a great freaking idea. I loved it.

So we got together one evening before they went out to dinner and drinks. It was one of the most fun sessions yet. These girls had a blast together. We got some wonderful shots and more importantly, they captured this moment forever. A friend of mine saw the pictures and was adamant that our group of girl friends set up something similar. We were all in the midst of different places in-life, pregnant, trying to get pregnant, new jobs, deployments, new babies. Yet we were always still there for each other! So I called a photographer friend of mine and we had that captured as well. I have one of those awesome pictures framed on my mantle. I love looking at it.

I think of all the stories I see on facebook of my friends being their for each other. Having dinner groups, craft nights, baby-sitting for each other etc. It is so important. So I’m offering a full day to grab your girl friends, get glammed up and head out for some pics commemorating your friendships. August 17, appts from 9-5, 45 minutes of shooting. $35/girl and you will each get digital copies of your edited pics.



Southern Indiana Children’s Photography: Conner is 9

July 30th, 2013

Today, my sweet, handsome and smart son turned 9. I was able to convince him to let me take him out for some pictures to capture his personality, I think I succeeded. My kids asked me this morning why i always wanted to take their pictures, and especially on their birthday. I told them, believe it or not, soon you will not want me anywhere near you, birthday or not, so I want to capture what I can, when I can. Luckily, they still can’t fathom that day ever coming, so I made sure to cash in some extra snuggles as bed time tonight.

and of course, one of my sweet LilliBugg

Southern Indiana Portrait Photography: Vintage Glam Sessions

May 2nd, 2013

As many of you might know, in addition to photographing families and sweet babies, I also have a super fun boudoir photography business! I absolutely adore the way I get to help women see themselves in a new way. It has been incredibly empowering for both clients and myself. I am able to show ALL women that they are beautiful. After many conversations with clients and friends, it was reinforced to me that so many of our self-esteem issues stem from when we are little. I have a young daughter myself, and when I think of the possibility that she might feel about herself the way I felt about myself during my teen and tween years, my heart aches. Then I look at clothing stores for these girls and I get ANGRY! They are marketing clothes and images to girls that are completely inappropriate. Bikinis, crop tops, pants and shirts with suggestive sayings, super tight jeggings? boo.

So what I wanted to do was capture these sweet girls in a way to show them that they don’t have to show off or dress like someone else to feel beautiful, inside and out. So without further delay, I present: Vintage Glam Sessions, Showcasing Your Daughter’s Beauty and Grace. These sessions are $175.00 and will include a 45 minute session either at the studio or on location somewhere, moderate styling and use of hair accessories and other props and a 5×7 print in a couture frame. Additional prints will be available a la carte!

If you are interested in scheduling your session, send me an email via the contact us page!
