Legacy portraits are the heart and soul of our studio. It is our hope that your portraits will hold a place of honour in your home and that the little ones in your life will continually gaze at them with awe and wonder. In an era of fast throwaway products, we go against the grain and strive to create timeless portraits of exceptional quality that will become a family heirloom to be passed down for many generations to come.
Our studio is set up and fully stocked for totally timeless, classic portraits of you and your family. We have an enormous collection of props, clothing, and backdrops that enable us to offer an extraordinary level of service and produce images with a unique level of diversity.
Our portrait sessions are tailored to you and your story. Storytelling portraits can take on many different forms. Sometimes they are symbolic in nature. Sometimes they are playful scenes set up to keep children engaged and capture authentic moments. And, sometimes they incorporate family heirlooms and items of significance to your family to create meaningful portraits with a piece of your own family history.
Looking for magical places to take portraits is a daily commitment for us. We have countless beautiful locations to take stunning outdoor photographs for every season.
