Haynie | Lifestyle Newborn Session | Courtney Dorsey Photography | WV, OH, KY Newborn Photographer

After we got sweet Dax into the studio in Barboursville, West Virginia for his newborn studio session, momma decided that she really wanted to do her family session at home <3

I love lifestyle newborn sessions for so many reasons, but mostly because it allows me to capture your family at home in your natural element. You’re comfy and relaxed and we get to capture all those tiny memories and details of not only your family, but the nursery, siblings, and all the new things that come with bringing a new baby home.

Dax’s big brother is already great at his job as you can see below and I have no doubt he is going to be the best big brother in the future!

Can’t decide between a studio session and a lifestyle session? Some families decide to do both, just like this one! Check out their studio newborn session here.

If you’re in search of a West Virginia newborn photographer, I’d love to chat with you! Contact me to schedule your session <3

Birthday and Cake Smash Sessions | Courtney Dorsey Photography | Barboursville West Virginia |

Birthday and Cake Smash Sessions | Courtney Dorsey Photography | Barboursville West Virginia |

Updated: 02/27/2020

In case you haven’t noticed lately, I love cake smash sessions almost as much as I love newborn photography sessions! I love watching your little ones grow from their newborn sessions through their first year; from all the ways they change to all the ways I can still see that tiny newborn once they start running around my studio and you get those first glimpses of their big personalities.

I often get asked what themes, backdrops and props I have available for first birthday and/or cake smash sessions, so I thought this would be a perfect way to show you what some of your options are. We can always talk about creating something just for you, but just in case you have seen something you love, this is what we have available at the studio in Barboursville, West Virginia.

If you need to book a newborn session, contact us today – we would be happy to get you on the schedule <3

McDaniel | Newborn Session | April 27, 2019 | Courtney Dorsey Photography | Barboursville WV

As y’all know from my last blog, this year has been a year for the boys! Don’t get me wrong, I love my newborn boys and families, but newborn girls have been super rare this year! For this session, I was surprised with another girl! Woohoo! Two blogs about newborn girls back to back! 🙂

This sweet pea was such a delight to have at our Barboursville, West Virginia studio! I mean, would you just look at that head of hair?! Those beautiful headbands were made for this girl.

My favorite part about this session was how often we got to change her outfits and backdrops. When you scroll through this article, be sure to pay attention to the details of each photo!

We finished off by taking photos of the entire family. I’m not sure if I have ever seen a prouder big sister!

Thank you all for being such wonderful company! And to all my past, present and future clients out there, feel free to reach out to me if you are looking for your next photo session!

Tips for Choosing a Photographer for Your Next Event from a Barboursville, West Virginia Newborn Photographer

Updated: 02/27/2020

Whether it’s a wedding, an anniversary, or the birth of a child, choosing a photographer is not easy. The right photographer will be able to skillfully capture the event and ensure the participants have beautiful photos they can fondly look at for many years to come. When deciding on a photographer, there are a few steps you should take to ensure they are making the right choice for their photography needs. I have outlined the following steps to help you in the process.

Take the Right Steps to Get Started to Photography in West Virginia

When it comes to hiring a photographer, you need to make sure they take time and carefully research. The more you learns about a photographer, the better equipped you will be to make a sound decision. The following steps should be taken in the process:

  • One of the first things you should ask for from a photographer is references. Getting this information from a photographer is beneficial in allowing you to learn more about what they can expect from these services. Individuals need to make sure they call each of the references and speak with them, asking pertinent questions.

  • Getting referrals from family, friends, and business associates can assist you in learning more about the skilled photographers in West Virginia.

  • Interviews are an essential method of learning about photographers. At these interviews, individuals can view the portfolio of each photographer, to get a feel for the style and skill the photographer offers. Comparing the photo examples of the different photographers will assist a person in making the right decision.

  • It is wise for you to get to know a photographer before they hire them for their event. Sitting down over a cup of coffee and discussing the details of the services that will be needed will help an individual to make the right choice and ensure they and their photographer are on the same page
