Courtney Burnett

What would you do if you found out you had a malignant brain tumor at age 29?

There are not enough words to describe the energy surrounding this powerful young woman. @courtneyjburnett is the epitome of what we should all strive to be. When presented with what many would find incomprehensible lessons, instead of giving up, this incredible young woman chose to find the silver linings in the darkness.

As a photographer, it is our job to capture the true essence of a human being in our portrait work. Courtney, the beauty and positive energy that radiates from within you is absolutely amazing. Thank you for allowing us to capture your brightness, your spirit, and your beauty.

With her first published book, Difficult Gifts, any one of us can learn from her touching, raw and heartfelt words. As she has so eloquently put, “May you always find beauty in the little moments.”
