Heirloom Portraits

Heirloom Portraits, sometimes referred to as Legacy Portraits, are a must to capture children in their youth. These timeless portraits make great wall art in any home and freeze your child's youth in time. Portraits are taken at my in-home studio in Dinwiddie, VA.

How long is a session?

Session lengths vary by child. It is super important to me to make sure your child is totally comfortable in order to capture their true personality. For some children, this may mean they need to spend a little time getting acquainted with me and a new space. I provide opportunities for children to adjust for period of time with the help of a parent/guardian. Once I feel that we have captured an ample amount of great portraits, the session will conclude. This may range from 10 to 45 minutes depending on the child.

What age group do you recommend for this type of portrait?

You know your child best, of course, but I recommend a minimum of age 2 for these portraits. While it is possibly to capture these in older youth, the typical maximum age falls around 7 or 8 years.

Can I get a larger printed file?

Of course! There is a small upcharge to increase the size of your prints.

Where do you take these photos?

Photos are taken in my in-home studio. We do have a dog and cat on grounds that are kept separate from the portrait area. Please let me know at least 5 days in advance if you have any severe allergies.

Do you have framed prints?

Absolutely! I have many options of frames to choose from. There is an additional charge for frames, but standard prints are included.

Can I print these myself?

I do not include printing rights with these photos due to the nature of the style. It is extremely important that files are printed in a professional printing lab to ensure the highest quality. I calibrate my photos to match the colors of certain labs, and this ensures a perfect match. There are other printing packages you can purchase if you want more than the included number of prints.
