Hey Loves!

I'm Cortney!

so glad you're here!

&& this is me - the face & heart behind C. Haugen Photography.

I am just a crazy, [little bit weird], goofy girl, addicted to coffee, tacos, a good bargain & horses. I am the proud mama of 1 gutsy & energetic girl, [ fur-mama of 1 jerk of a cat, 2 rowdy labs, a goldfish, donkey named Earle & TWO big-hearted horses] and am happily married to my best friend and supporter, Jason.


'Cortney has the eye! She brought us out to an amazing location, and without any sort of formal posing, captured the perfect images. She simply suggested some natural ideas - and while I felt awkward - the photos show a different story. I would recommend C. Haugen Photography to anyone, and will be going to her for family photos moving forward! Thank you, Cortney!'


Your Portraits, Delivered. 

A hobbyist photographer since 2012 - professional since 2019 - I have made many mistakes, learned & built myself to where I am today. I still make mistakes - I still learn - every day. I am always looking for new and different with each session I hold! If my sessions are always the same, I am failing at my creativity - I am failing you. I always thought I needed to be consistent with my images - same style, same colors, same poses - I needed to look like other photographers. But I have found that's not who I am - my sessions are unique based on capturing every session individually - uniquely tailored to you & your story - no two sessions should ever look alike.
