let's tell your story
Legacy sessions are inclusive, storytelling portrait sessions that are tailored to different seasons of life because every chapter of your life deserves to be celebrated, captured and remembered.
Capturing tiny moments that would otherwise be soon forgotten.
Someone, somewhere someday is going to care about your life–right now, as it is. Don’t wait to start documenting your legacy. All of life's moments are what make up your life's story; big and small. That, is your Legacy.
Heirloom albums ensure that your story can be told and legacy can be remembered when your memory fails you of those fleeting moments. Every handcrafter album is made up of thick premium stock pages, your memories printed in a true to life way so you can remember the day – just as it was, wrapped in genuine fabric or leather.
ask for details
All legacy sessions include an optional pre-session consultation by phone or zoom, wardrobe styling and session at an outdoor location.
inquire with rebecca
Believe me when I say, I’ve been there! You want those beautiful portraits of you and your family or significant other, with coordinating clothing to match your personality and time of year. You want to include your fur babies or you’re just praying your toddler can go fifteen minutes without a meltdown. Your partner is only agreeing to pictures because, quite frankly, they just want to get them over with and is hoping these will suffice for the next couple of years. (YES, my husband is like that too.)
I can promise you this won’t be like anything you've ever experienced while having your photos taken, this will be fun. My number one goal is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I will guide you on where to stand and what to do with your hands, but I'll also make sure those candid moments that you love are captured! I want these pictures to be a true representation of who you are. There will be smiles, laughs and beautiful memories made. It will be an experience that everyone can enjoy – even the one who rolled their eyes at the thought of photos. If you don't leave feeling like we're old friends, then I didn't do my job!
what is your photography style?
I strive to achieve timelessness with my photographs so your memories age gracefully. My approach is both interactive and discreet. I use prompts to evoke real emotion and movement to be able to capture you and your loved one(s) naturally.
what time will we be shooting?
For the best light, I like to start sessions two hours before sunset when light is the softest and photographs beautifully.
what should i wear?
If you opt for the pre-session consultation, after booking, we will talk about your style and what type of outfits may work best for you and your loved ones. I want you to stay true to what is comfortable to you but I am more than happy to offer styling suggestions!
how will we recieve our photos?
I love delivering my client’s files quickly and easily through an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want. I believe in freely sharing my work.
when will we receive our photos?
My turnaround time for full galleries is 4-6 weeks from your session date.
can we purchase an album at a later time?
Absolutely! If you do not purchase an album at the time of booking, you are free to purchase an album or even heirloom prints at a later date. Please note that as time passes after your session, there will likely be price increases for albums and prints due to the nature of the product.
