Courtney Ringsted Photography 2015 Year In Review!

2015 was a pivotal year for Courtney Ringsted Photography! We left our home of 20+ years in the CA southland in search of a more mellow pasture in Central CA! Mission definitely accomplished. Huge thanks to our longtime supporters and new clients for helping us grow!

We've put together a video of some of our favorite memories from 2015!  The year end was so busy you'll see lots of never-before-shared images here which we're really proud of nonetheless. Sit back, turn up the volume and enjoy!  

Goodbye, 2015!
Welcome, 2016!

Kenneth Hahn State Park Family Portrait Photographer

Shoots like this are the reason why I love being a photographer.   Shortly into our session Joanna shared with me that their last family portrait session ended in lots of tears.  I'm happy to report that our morning together began and ended on a high note with giggles and laughter abound.  Thank you to this sweet family for entrusting me with capturing these special moments. 

Wife, Momma & Photographer Extraordinaire!

Welcome to Courtney Ringsted Photography (formerly Sanctuary-Studio Photography)!  I've been on an extended hiatus but I'm thrilled to announce that I'M BACK!  And with a new website, to boot!  Although I never actually stopped shooting, I was a little more selective about the projects I took on these last many months because I've been so busy learning how to be a Momma!  Yep, 16 months ago Mike and I welcomed our son Zephyr into the world.  He became my main focus these last many months but now that we're finally starting to find our groove I'm happy to have more time again to focus on capturing special moments for all of you!

Feel free to drop me a line or leave a comment and let me know what you think of the new site.  And of course if you need any photos of you or your little ones let me know!  It's never too early to start thinking about those holiday pictures.  Especially with the first official day of Autumn right around the corner!  Oy!

Mad love,
