Let me tell you a little about myself...

Bay Area Family Photographer

Courtney Zito 

Walnut Creek
Family, Maternity, Newborn & Engagement Photographer

Hi, I'm Courtney! Wife, mom, bonus mom, freelance television producer, true crime enthusiast and coffee lover.

I have been behind the lens for over 20 years in just about every capacity possible!  I was a TV/Film producer in both Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area and I still freelance as a television producer when my schedule permits. I have won awards for my producing, directing, writing and even... acting. That’s right, once upon a time, I was an actor. It’s why I moved to California from my home state of New York, but as life tends to do, it took me down a different path, and put me behind the lens. I am also an award-winning, published author, but that's a story for another time.

Do you see a common theme here? Something each of these very different mediums have in common as it relates to me? I'll give you a hint... It’s storytelling. I am a natural born storyteller and it's been my life's work. Photography is simply another wonderful extension of that passion. 

But enough about me… you're here because you want to capture the moments you'll want to remember forever. And I am here to help you do just that.


I specialize in family, maternity & newborn photography here in the Bay Area of California. My style is authentic, unposed, and emotional. I am all about connection in my photography. I know finding the right photographer for your family can feel like a daunting process at times. Custom photography isn't for everyone, and the investment isn't only a financial one. So if you hire me, I want you to enjoy the experience from start to finish and make beautiful memories with your family in the process. 

I look forward to being your photographer and telling your family's story.
