My reason WHY? – In-hospital Newborn Photography – Fresh 48 – Photograhper Cortney Jones

I often get asked WHY? do I do what I do. And the better one of “I bet you just love your job?” I do, I really really do. Here’s why…

When my daughter was born I was in such awe of her. She made my whole world make sense in a way I don’t think I would understand without her. She is the most amazing thing I have ever created, my greatest accomplishment along with her three brothers. The story we tell her is that she was more beautiful than snow white, so we had to name her Winter.

This is the very first image ever taken of her,

she is less than 24 hours old and sporting the same sort of hospital blankets I have on in my first image after entering this world. The young woman that came into our hospital room to take her photos quickly fell short of capturing her beauty. The “photographer” laid a generic pink and blue plaid paper down on a hard hospital bassinet, put my daughter on top and snapped with a stationary camera that hung above my baby. My daughter’s in-hospital image is very similar to the one above. I asked the “photographer” if she was studying photography or if she wanted to be a nurse, she answered no to both. I then asked her if she loved babies, she responded with “it’s just a job.” I was heart broken that the young woman cared little for photography and seemingly less for my child.

I started doing in-hospital photography for my friends and family after that. I didn’t know what I was doing yet but I knew because I had studied photography and cared about babies; I could do a better job for them than the old way it had been being done for too many years. Soon I contracted with a hospital in Bountiful Utah. Then, when Lone Peak Hospital in Draper was opening they were asking around for all the greatest things in the hospitals around the area. They wanted to put all the best things at this one hospital for mommas. Me! I was one of the best things in the hospitals. Lone Peak contracted with me before they opened there doors to new mothers and I got to photograph the very first babies born there. I am now in several hospitals along the Wasatch Front and have been  for more than seven years.

I really feel like it is such a wonderful privilege to get to visit with families in this very special time at the hospital. I adore meeting all these new little people and getting to capture what they looked like when they made their parents into mommies and daddies.

Even hospitals I am not contracted with, I visit very often to do in-hospital photography for those that have requested my services. My maternity and newborn photography clients get a free in-hospital session when they book their studio newborn session.

   I still take images with the nostalgic pink and blue hospital blanket. But then we do the rest of the session like this… To book your session please contact Cortney Jones 801-388-3384

Birth Story in the OR – Bountiful Utah – Birth Photography

I am over the moon for this little man! I feel a huge honor when someone invites me to document the birth of their child. The birth of a child is such a beautiful thing; to witness such an experience always has me bubbling with excitement.

Things don’t always go the way you plan; probably more often than not. This babe was supposed to come VBAC after an induction on Monday. I got the call that mom’s water had broke but that she wasn’t having contractions Saturday night. Sunday afternoon the call was made that he would be born via cesarean section. The incredible privilege was mine to get to go into the OR and document this baby boys first moments in this world.

Welcome to the world, baby Beckett.


My passion for birth stories came from my own experience. I had my fourth little love three years ago January and had a photograph capture everything. I am soo thankful she was there. My epidural didn’t work and I am ended up going natural. It wasn’t so bad looking back on it, but at the time I closed my eyes and missed everything! If she hadn’t been there I would have nothing from my experience except my beautiful boy. Birth story photography is something you will never regret having done, but you may regret passing up the opportunity to document this amazing experience.

I am one of a kind and have probably photographed more newborns in the state of Utah than any other photographer. I am up over 2,500 now! Not all of those were birth stories but many many of them were in the hospitals all along the Wasatch front. I am lucky enough to call many nurses, techs, doctors, and employees there my friends. It’s wonderful!
I only take a very limited number (1 or 2) of birth story clients per month. If you have questions or want to know my availability please email me at

Little Prince – Newborn Photographer Cortney Jones – Bountiful Utah

When my son come into this world all I could think was he must be the most amazing thing I had ever seen (right up there with his sister born a couple years before him.) I called him my little prince. I wish so badly I had images of him like these with a beautifully handsome crown upon his head.

This sweet prince is lucky to be growing up in a home that so values books and music they immortalized them in his newborn images. Some rare finds, vintage fun, and awesome tunes. A prince of the arts perhaps.


Ogden Regional In-hospital Photography – Professional Photographer Cortney Jones

Ogden Regional Medical Center is near and dear to my heart because I know so many of the wonderful staff and nurses that work there in Women’s Services. It is also where I delivered all four of my children. When I get to go and do photos for another family there, I love being flooded with the memories of my own babies births.
This little guy did so good! If you are delivering at Ogden Regional and want me to come do photos for you, please contact me via email at or give me a call (801) 388-3384.

These are just a few of the amazing shots we got right in the hospital room when this little prince was just one day old.
