I offer a gentle, unobtrusive approach to family photos that allows you to come away with photos you love of the people you love. Legacy Sessions are photography sessions designed for couples, maternity, newborn & families who want a laid back photography experience without sacrificing beautiful photos of the people they love. You'll be guided along the way through session planning to printing and you'll come away with not only digital files but something to physically hold on to from you session.

Behind the Legacy Experience

Imagine a photography experience that takes everything off your plate so you can enjoy the process with your loved ones... 

"I cannot say enough kind words about Steph and her beautiful photography. I’ve worked with her twice, and each time she has been patient, attentive to our desires, not afraid to try new things all while making us comfortable in our own skin. Our newborn session with her came at a tumultuous time in our lives after coming home from the NICU. Stephenie managed to perfectly capture the multitude of feelings that come with having a newborn— scared, unknown, utter joy... I will cherish those photos forever. If you need a photographer, hire this one. I promise you won’t regret it."

Allison  | Legacy Session Clients

"I love her unique work, how she photographs all the details, ensuring you won’t forget a thing."

What people say


If you've ever shopped for art of any kind before, you know that prices are all over the map...and that's certainly true with photography as well. And like with other art, those prices aren't easily compared - it's not apples to apples. 

With the Legacy Sessions overall investment ranging from $1100-$2000, you'll find that my work is neither the cheapest, nor the most expensive in the area, but it does represent one of the best values. I have had the honor of photographing hundreds of beautiful humans and have a passionate commitment to your satisfaction I take very seriously, so you can invest confidently, knowing your money and time will be well spent.

First, you'll inquire and we'll connect over the phone for about 20 minutes. Call me old-fashioned, but I so enjoy having a human connection with you. We'll connect about your needs and goals for your photos. I'll explain my unique, intentional process and we'll answer any questions you may have. 





Then we'll book your session and start planning. You'll be supported and guided with a Legacy Session Prep Guide, what to wear advice and help and anything else you need,  throughout our time working to make sure you feel confident for your photo experience. 

Next you'll enjoy my easy-going photography approach for your session. My quiet but direct approach helps family photo sessions feel natural and calm, all while documenting all the beautiful moments. Sessions typically last anywhere from 45-90 minutes. 

Then, you'll fall in love with your photos, choose your Collection, print and download them!  The overall Legacy Collection Investment ranges from $1100-$2000 depending on the number of digitals and the amount of print credit you choose. I know printing your family photos is so important to you but can often be overwhelming. With the Legacy Session Experience, I guide you through your printing decisions and even provide print credit to get your printing journey started. You hardly even have to think about it. 


Kaitlyn & Eric

"I’m so grateful to have discovered her work at the very beginning of my little ones life. At our in home newborn session with our then 3-week old, Steph was beyond patient, and again so kind. As a new mom still healing, I was so anxious to see myself in these (and with a little dread) but any self doubt/image fear I had was completely shattered once I saw our gallery and I am so grateful. I love that she is the biggest advocate for printing photographs and albums. The newborn album she created for us (and hand delivered) is swoon worthy. A true treasure. 

"Steph’s work is art. Her soft, timeless, delicate, beautiful images resonate so much with me"
