organic, romantic storytelling

My name is Courtney, and I am just a simple girl living in the Midwest with a passion for storytelling. I have a huge desire for authenticity - in all aspects of life and art. At the heart of what I do is a hopeless romantic of a little girl, always wearing her brother's hand-me-downs, covered in dirt (or watching The Sound of Music on repeat), and completely mesmorized by the trees, fields, and creek that backed up to our home. You could say that even as a child, I was head-over-heels in love with nature and really, love itself. It created a kind of combination that I like to think helped shape my photography style.
