Heirloom Portrait Mentorship

Are you in?

The Art and Business of Portraits

The CMP Heirloom Portrait mentorship is a 3 month engagement to teach you the art and business of heirloom portraits. I'll teach you everything you need to know to add a high end portrait offering to your business, and support you in the months following as you get your business up and running.


“Courtney is the real deal! She delivers exactly what she promises, teaching you in a very encouraging way everything you need to know to master all parts of the heirloom portrait process from start to finish, including attracting interested clients, sourcing products and providing excellent customer support. Her willingness to answer any question is beyond compare. It was a pleasure to learn from Courtney and I’m so glad I invested my time and money with her!”

- Barbara Andrukonis

"Courtney is the real deal!"


First, I'll teach you EVERYTHING you need to know about studio light for heirloom portraits. I'll teach you how to use studio strobe to capture perfect, consistent images to create a solid foundation for your final portraits. 

I'll teach you how I get genuine expressions and interaction from varying age groups. I'll give you prompts for varying ages, and the framework for capturing the perfect set of portrait proofs.

Here's What You'll Learn

It's time to get products into your clients hands! I'll teach you my framework for selling fine art products like prints, frames and digital files to create beautiful art, and put profit in my pocket through a simple to understand online sales model.

more about me

hey there!

Courtney's Heirloom Portrait Workshop is absolutely one of the very best investments I have made since I began my business five years ago. Courtney is as sweet as can be and truly thought of everything to make the day enjoyable and educational. She was so thorough in teaching the set-up, photography, and editing of the heirloom portraits, so I left that day feeling super confident in my ability to create these beautiful and timeless images.

 Courtney has been there every single step to guide me as I learned how to photograph these sessions in my own studio and edit them, plus (and especially) she has guided me with every step on the business side of things to ensure that my heirloom portraits have been a success. She has helped with pricing, emails, setting work boundaries, CRM workflows, and so much more. She has been so patient with me throughout this entire process and truly held my hand as I have learned what it means to run a sustainable photography business.

 Courtney has truly guided me through all of this and continues to be the most wonderful teacher as I have come back with more questions, even after I have begun implementing these into my own business. This workshop was really a big turning point in my photography business to finally get me to the next level, and I will forever be so glad that I took the leap and invested in it!

- Ashley McKinney
