State College PA Senior Photographer | Welcome to the Blog

Oh my gosh! I can't believe I am about to say this....


Hey there, lovely! Whether you're just meeting me, or you've been following my story since day one, I'm so thankful you're here!! I’m Courtney Jo - the premiere State College Pennsylvania senior photographer! I specialize in high school seniors, teens, and young adults in State College, Lewisburg, and the surrounding central Pennsylvania area!  I have been wanting to do this for years, so you have no idea how freaking excited I am to FINALLY have a website and blog that I love!


So, you're thinking my blog is going to be about just pretty pictures and seasonal promos, right?  Well get ready to be surprised because my blog is about SO MUCH MORE than that! Here's just a sneak peek at what you can expect:


Now you're probably thinking, "woahhhh, hold up Courtney Jo. I thought you were just a photographer? Why is your blog about fashion, travel, cooking, DIY, and organization? "

Well, my lovely, here's why!

While I adore photography with every fiber of my being, taking beautiful images of women isn't why I started my business. Pretty pictures are not what push me to keep going. Sneak peeks and 4x6's aren't fuel me to be my best.... it's empowering those young women behind my camera that drives my art and my business.



It's so difficult to feel confident in your own skin. Society, the media, the fashion industry, strangers on the internet - they're all telling you that you have to look, think,  act a certain way in order to be "beautiful", and I know first hand how tough that is! Growing up, I had ZERO confidence in myself - in my mind, I was never good enough in any way. As I get older,  I'm learning to love who I amand IGNORE what everyone tells me I SHOULD be. Looking back, I wish my high-school self I had this confidence and THAT, my dear, is why I do this. THAT is what fuels my creativity and passion. THAT is why I wake up every day and pour 110% of myself into this business. Because you, my lovely, need to know how truly amazing you are!

You deserve to have your unique personality and beauty captured for a lifetime. You deserve to be shown how truly radiant you are.  You deserve to feel confident, strong, and love the skin you're in. You have an amazing story that deserves to be told.

I'm here to tell that story.
And my blog is here to enhance that story.

I want my blog to be an extension of my services, to empower you through more than just your portraits. No matter how you express yourself - through your outfit, your makeup, your hair, your food, your projects, your organization, your planner, your images, or your selfies - I want to inspire you to love you who are and show that in every way possible!

So get ready for some amazing content coming your way soon (and of course those gorgeous images that tell so many beautiful stories!).
