My name is Cortney Chummoungpak, the founder and head designer at Cortney Louise Creative. My trusty side-kick, and often my test photo model, is Bear Bear.

I started my career in Los Angeles at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. I received a degree in Visual Communications and Business Management. In my journey, I have always sought out new challenges where I can balance my creative side with my strength in organization and leadership. I have been working on freelance creative projects since 2010 but my passion for photography was fueled when I worked as a photographer at Disneyland Resort. 

In photography I love capturing candid family moments. As someone who has lost a few family members to cancer, I cherish the photos I have and often wish I had more. In graphic design and social media management, while I have worked with many established clients, I truly enjoy assisting new businesses who need some help finding solid ground in a customer base or solidifying a concept.

After living all over California, my family recently settled down in Portland, Oregon. My extensive retail and customer service experience helped me identify that I truly enjoy helping people. I want to assist as many people as I can reach their goals or capture some memories.


I am always seeking new challenges and opportunities. Use the contact form to tell me what you wildest dreams are and we can work together to make them come true.
