Hi!  I’m Courtney Benton

I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, friend and photographer.  I have lived most of my life in West Monroe, LA, except for my college years which I spent in Monticello, Ark.  All of my life I have been surrounded by the best family and friends anyone could ask for.  I have never been out of the South, but that’s ok, I have experienced life as a true southerner.  I love chocolate, diet coke, pralines, gumbo, crawfish, Tony Chachere’s, Coney Island chili cheese dogs, bon fires, being on the water, cooking, eating, drinking, music, babies, food network, 80’s movies, Sigma Sigma Sigma, gum, the beach, concerts, lotions, perfumes, jewelry, jeans, long sleeve t-shirts, fleur de lis, Blue Bell ice cream, Shipley’s donuts, coffee, sushi, our dogs, cats and Alabama football.

I have been shooting professionally since 2008 and I absolutely love it!  I believe that you should know where you come from & where you’ve been, to know where you are going.  I believe in family history, you should have pictures of family whether they live in another city, state or if they are no longer with us.

Have you ever heard the following sayings; You can never go back…  They grow up way too fast…  Remember when…  Why not capture those memories while you have a chance?  No, you can never go back… Yes, they do grow up way too fast… but you will always have pictures to remember when.

I love seeing the beauty in life.  I don’t want to miss anything, I want to look back years from now and remember those mile stones or last Christmas when everyone was in town.  Pictures are the best way to share your memories.  You will always be able to look at a picture and it will take you back to that time in your life and you will remember everything about that moment.

Let me stop that moment in time for you.
