Meet the Photographer

Hello! Nice to meet you! 

Let me introduce myself.


My name is Kourtney,  I am the owner and operator of Brighter Focus Photography. I was born and raised in Belvidere, IL, and now you will find me raising my own family here! 

Speaking of my family, I have an amazingly supportive husband, 4 beautiful kiddos, and 1 rowdy Rogue (Our dog). My passion for photography started at home. I wanted to capture my kids every move. My husband bought me my first camera in 2013 and the rest is history! 

I started my business with photography in 2014. I have loved watching all of my clients and their families grow and change over the years. I love being a part of each milestone while capturing all of my clients emotions and memories in photographs.


I look forward to meeting and working with you in the future. 


What Clients Are Saying

I can not give Kourtney enough praise! I reached out to her after a rough engagement session with another photographer and let me tell you she made a world of difference! Kourtney shot our engagement session and our wedding and the photos are breathtaking! She is so fun and positive, she made us feel confident and beautiful every step of the way! We love Kourtney!
