I must say, of all the cyber places you could have ended up, I’m certainly glad you chose to be here. Viewing my site is best accompanied by your choice of beverage; I recommend sweet tea, hazelnut macchiato, or Prosecco. That, and 80's music, preferably from the Breakfast Club soundtrack.

Richmond Maternity Session on Film
Virginia Fine Art Film Maternity Portraits
Nearly a year ago, a dear friend and I stepped out in vulnerability and wrote this blog post. We shared about infertility in hopes that other women who are struggling would know in times of their deepest yearning for a child they weren’t alone.
The first weekend in October, I received a phone call from Ashley that literally made me hit my knees, sobbing those heavy, shoulder shaking cries as she told me that she and Charlie were expecting.
My sweet, beautiful friend has transformed, almost as if overnight, into this incredibly radiant, maternal creature. The mother she was always meant to be, even if it was on a different timeline than she original planned.
Wyatt, your sweet Mama and Daddy whispered pleas for your existence into the heavens long before you ever took your first breath. You were worth the wait, every second.

I’ve known for a while now that it was time to make some changes, not just cosmetically speaking, but real changes that reflect my heart for serving my clients, for curating tangible heirlooms, and creating an online aesthetic that corresponds with those changes.
The #nspbrandevolution has been in the works for the duration of this year, and truth be told, for part of last year as well. I have been dreaming about offering print products and expanding upon my portrait client experience, and that is where The Love Legacy was born from.
I believe in the art of the tangible, the importance of preservation, which is why I want to offer services that help my clients curate artistic and tangible heirlooms. I believe our memories deserve to be transformed into art that adorns our walls!
From now on, my clients will have the opportunity to create a tailored hybrid photography experience, whether their needs are digital image specific, or if they want prints and fine art albums. I am most excited about now offering complimentary Curation Consultations to help them create custom gallery walls of their images for their homes.
It should be no secret to anyone who follows my work that I have come to adore motherhood while watching my sister become a mother for the first time. I have realized that yes, I adore marriage and truly believe in what marriage represents and consider it a joy and an honor to be a part of the beginning of so many couple’s Love Legacies. I have also realized that I don’t want my relationship with my clients to end there, specifically my relationship with my brides as it’s my desire to journey along-side them to motherhood. I want to serve my couples and create heirlooms for them as they become parents, as they meet their littles and fill their homes with laughter and tiny footsteps. Fine art maternity sessions are now being offered as something I will specialize in from now on.
This new space wouldn’t have been possible without Chelsea Petaja (logo), Krista Jones (design), and Hannah Brencher (wordsmith and writing coach). I am so grateful to know you and for helping me in this journey.
