Best Mother’s Day Gifts: Memories for Mom
As a photographer, I’ve always treasured freezing moments in time with the tap of a shutter… a 500th of a second snapshot that would otherwise never be documented. But as a mother, that desire is exponetially more important because I truly realize how rare it is for me to actually be in front of the camera. I’m sure the same is true for the sweet mamas in your life.
That’s why a photography session is always a special way to celebrate this messy yet magical journey we call motherhood. My passion at Legacy Photography is to provide a pampering experience for every mama that strolls into my studio.
From hair and makeup to wardrobe and styling, I take care of everything so you can show up in your messy bun and relax. I’m also committed to preserving a mother’s legacy through custom designed story walls and heirloom albums. Gift certificates are available for the sentimental mama in your life.
