These Legacy Sessions are so close to my heart! If you have followed me on Instagram for any length of time, you saw my Insta-Story about how my sisters birthday was just last week. If you know the story of my sister, she was tragically killed in a car accident many years ago and she’s really the entire reason I got into photography to begin with. I realized how important it was to document your family because when it’s too late, it’s a horrible feeling of regret. I set out to give other families what I wished I had had….more photos of their families-but more specifically, photos that you could pass on to future generations-I call them the legacy sessions. After each session, clients choose the images they want included into an heirloom leather album.
Ironically, I shot this session on my sister’s birthday….it occurred to me that day that my life had literally come full circle. I’m documenting someone’s family on my sisters birthday-the person that set me out on this journey to begin with. It was a pretty amazing feeling. These sessions are simple….I like them that way. I usually shoot them in studio however I would LOOOOOVE to photograph these sessions in people homes…the homes they grew up in and has been in their family for generations.
Meet Great-Grandma Judy, Grandma Tammie, Mom Heather and daughters Mackenzie and Taylor. They are an amazing group of ladies and they reminded me of my own family in so many ways.
