Thanks for stopping by!


My baby turned 6 this last week.  I can’t even believe it.  We just love her spunky little personality:)

Leilani - You really do take some stunning pictures! The ones in the white chair could easily be in a children’s clothing catalogue! Beautiful girl too! Happy Birthday Sierra!

Jillyn - Cute little fish tail braid… I can’t believe she is SIX!

laura bunker - She is beautiful! I just love these images. Maybe it’s her styling hair. Wowzer.

Camille - You captured all her little expressions so perfectly! I love every last image! Laura is right, the hair is darling. I just can’t believe your baby is six! (sniff)

Teara - She looks so grown up:) love her little personality!

Jen Stafford - What a cutie! Looks like you totally captured her personality in these images. She’s adorable. Happy Birthday to her!


This is Chance. He’s my newest nephew. He is so adorable!!!  He’s always such a happy little guy. When Chance was 8 days old he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. If you don’t know what Cystic Fibrosis is then you can read about it here.  To summarize its a chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system.  Life expectancy does not go beyond age 40.  In the 1950’s children with Cystic Fibrosis didn’t live to attend kindergarten.  Thank goodness for modern medicine.  Our hope is that as Chance grows up, medicine will advance enough to cure the disease altogether.

I wish I would have had time to do a whole photo session with Chance while I was in Utah.  Even though a lot of the time he doesn’t feel good, he has such a happy smiley attitude.

Camille - Oh I love Chance! So cute!

Nicole Nelson - Still so in love with all of your work!!! 🙂

laura bunker - What a cutie! Love that boy.

Teara - He is such an adorable little guy!


Victoria amazed me.  It was 30 degrees outside when I took these and I was wearing my big ski coat and freezing!  She was such a trooper!!!  And isn’t she so lovely?!  I love photographing dancers.

Family Album

A while ago I was reading this blog post.   I realized that I was one of those people who print just a few pictures to hang on the walls (we all have only so much wall space), but the rest of them just stay on my hard drive.  After reading that post I realized how silly that was.  What’s the point in having those pictures if you’re just storing them?  So I decided to make a book specifically for this year.  I just received mine and when I first opened the box and started looking through it I got emotional.  I’m so happy I have this!  Worth every penny.

They make amazing Christmas gifts as well!!!  I made one for last year while I was at it, but I haven’t had it printed yet (that’s on my to do list once I get moved).  I printed it at blurb.com and I am very happy with the quality.  It is an 11X13 landscape format.

laura bunker - Can’t wait to see this in person. Beautiful. What a great idea for your images.

Melanie R - Beautiful! and I so agree I too have run out of wall space! I loved my book I had done at Adoramapix.com It is a bit more but is photo quality pages, loved it!

camille - Oh I am so excited to see it too! What a keepsake!

Teara - I absolutely love this Cori! I need to do this:) Cant wait to look all the way through it

Jen Stafford - Oh, that is AWESOME! I really need to do this. It looks amazing. 🙂

Anne Elisabeth - What a great book! And of course you know I love the photos in it 🙂


I had so much fun shooting this session.  This is Emily’s family of Emme B Photography.  Its always nerve racking to shoot another photographers family pictures.  These kids are so well behaved! I shot this entire session with my 70-200mm lens.  Its been a while since I used it, and I fell in love with it all over again.

laura bunker - Beautiful family! Love the location! Awesome.

Megan - Emily, you must LOVE looking at yourself in the mirror. And congratulations on having well-behaved kids! That’s a good contrast for Cori…Martins to Brenners. Nice.

Jen Stafford - These are just gorgeous! The light is absolute perfection. I would have these all printed gigantic and hanging all over my house. I love them all.

Jillyn - Such beautiful pictures Cori.

Tami - Such sweet pictures and GORGEOUS edits! Love them!!

em - Love them! Love your edits! Thanks, Cori!

Camille - Love the light, edits, location, composite… everything! These are just beautiful!

Teara - I just love the locations you’ve been shooting at! Way cute family:)

Valerie - Very nice Cori again! Wow! Is it truly just starting to look like fall where you are? It’s WINTER over here!!! Pfffff! Nice images! 🙂
