Courtney Cania, Family Photographer
I am a photographer, web developer, mother to one daughter and two cats, and wife to a real estate agent / two-wheel aficionado. I am a lifelong learner, lover of Netflix, cherry sour ales, and grilled cheese.
I live with my family in West Lebanon, New Hampshire. I like to take my camera on long drives to photograph the New England countryside. More than anything else, I love to photograph people.
I love to capture the way life unfolds from tiny moments.
My favorite images highlight connection and emotion.
Images that say something and evoke emotion sing to my heart.
I'm into keeping it real—not altering my subjects or their surroundings, and preserving the honesty of life as it occurs.
While shooting, I look for interesting light, good composition, and great moments.
In addition to family documentary, which is a close observation of unposed and undirected life, I offer lifestyle sessions with designated time for posed images, prompted guidance and activities to highlight family connection while helping you look and feel your best in images.
Photography can happen anywhere. Children provide plenty of moments to photograph all on their own. The best way to create a moment is to fill your session with some of your favorite activities that you typically engage in together as a family. We can meet outdoors—I know some great locations around the Upper Valley—at home or in your backyard, or you can take me along on an outing.
When we work together, I want you to have a fun experience creating beautiful, storytelling images. I strive to capture your personalities and love for each other. I find beauty in everyday life. The NH and VT landscape provides a gorgeous backdrop, and often your natural environment around your home is just as perfect.
