The Portrait Experience

Forget the days of matching outfits and cheesy smiles. When you step in front of my lens, you’ll forget you’re even being photographed. We’ll laugh, play, and joyfully capture those magical, in between moments you’ll cherish forever. 

Most mamas wait to preserve their memories. 

They wait until they lose 20 pounds. They wait until their kids get older so they’re better behaved. They wait until life slows down.

Can I tell you a secret? There’s never a perfect time for a portrait session because perfection isn’t a reality, life is.

Mama, your beautifully imperfect family is worth documenting now. 

Isn’t perfect pretty boring anyway?


Spirited, Soulful, & Story-Filled Memories for families who value their LEGACY

Beautifully capturing the next chapter of your family's story

My greatest muse is my family.

My Story

As a child growing up in sultry South Louisiana, I vividly remember poring over old photographs of my family tucked inside dusty albums. I loved reminiscing about the stories those pictures told of times past.

In today's digital age, it's easy to encapsulate life's memories in the proverbial digital shoebox. All those once-in-a-lifetime moments scrolled through on your phone, shared to social media, stored on your computer, and forgotten forever.

Instead, I create custom designed artwork that serves as a family heirloom and beckons you to joyfully relive those fleeting seasons of life again and again.

As a mom of five and a Labor and Delivery nurse for many years, I uniquely understand that time is our most precious commodity. Let me capture your family's spirit, soul, and story so your legacy can be preserved for generations to come.




Our Signature Process

I. The Consultation

Nervous? Don’t be. Our in-depth portrait consultation helps you discover what matters most to you so your images aren’t just magical but deeply meaningful as well. 

II. Styling Guide

All Legacy clients receive a detailed styling guide that ensures they look and feel fabulous in front of the camera. What you wear has an enormous impact on the final outcome of your images, and I share all my secrets so you’re sure to receive that light and airy look you love. 

III. Your Session

Prepare to laugh, play, and connect with your precious family. I’ll guide you throughout your session so you’ll never wonder where to place your body or how to hold your hands. And you’ll even get a break from parenting! No discipline is ever necessary during my portrait sessions because I’ve got surprises up my sleeves. I have five kids, remember?

IV. Reveal Celebration

Cue the confetti and grab the tissue box! This will hands down be your favorite part of your portrait experience. I’ve seen grown men cry while caressing their wife’s hand and mamas shout with joy when they see their images for the first time! During your Reveal Celebration, I’ll help you choose your favorite images to display as artwork. Because memories aren’t made to digitally digest but to feel again and again.

V. Portraits and Albums

At Legacy Photography, we specialize in custom wall and album design. All of our heirloom products are guaranteed for life so you can have peace of mind knowing your legacy is preserved for generations to come.

Custom designed heirloom albums are priced at $100 per image. Framed artwork starts at $500. All heirlooms are printed through labs and framers that only service professional photographers. These archival heirlooms are guaranteed against warping or fading for life when displayed under normal conditions. 

HOW MUCH ARE HEIRLOOMS?

I recommend booking as soon as you know your availability, as I only schedule two portrait sessions per week in addition to weddings. This allows me to devote ample attention to all of my clients and offer them a full service, luxury portrait experience.

When should I book you? 

Your session is considered booked and added to my schedule once you have paid your session fee and signed your contract.

Frequently Asked Questions

ellen

I couldn't be more pleased with Hutson's senior portraits. Stephanie's attention to detail, her talent, and the quality of the portraits are overwhelming. Thank you, Stephanie, for capturing our young man and this milestone.

TAYLOR

Stephanie is a great photographer! I really enjoyed our portrait session and our reveal celebration. She loves your images as much as you do and takes great pride in making sure she captures everyone's loveliness and joy. She even got my husband to enjoy the session!  I would also recommend ordering prints through her. I made some CVS photos with some of my digitals and the photo quality is OBVIOUSLY lower than the prints I ordered through Legacy. It's definitely worth the money because her images are beautiful, and the portraits should be just as amazing!

Stephanie, with her experience as a labor and delivery nurse, brings something to the table many photographers cannot. In our newborn session, she was able to soothe and photograph our precious girl, who can be quite finicky! The images were incredibly beautiful, and she is so great to work with!!

WOW! Stephanie is so talented. Not only are her pictures breathtaking, but the experience was wonderful. She took her time getting the perfect shots but got the job done quickly. Stephanie made the experience relaxing and made me feel beautiful. Watching my husband and daughter smile as they held my son for the photographs made my momma heart burst. I'm so thankful to have these precious moments to look back on over the years.
