2021 heirloom sessions

Timeless portraits

How many (printed!) formal portraits do you have to pass down to your children and grandchildren? Tangible heirlooms are becoming a thing of the past. Let's change that! Heirloom sessions are designed to provide you with timeless formal portraits of your child. Enjoy them now while preserving your family's legacy.


Pro tip: they also make fantastic holiday gifts, hint, hint.



Date and time: October 2, 2021 between 10:00 am -12:00 pm


Location: Thirteen48 Heights located at 1348 Heights Blvd.


Setup and style: Thirteen48 Heights is a beautiful historic Heights home. We will use the space to take classic studio style portraits against a white backdrop. These will be used to create the white vignetted images and a hand traced silhouette of your child. Time permitting, we will also use additional spaces to capture candid images of your child.


All ages welcome! Milestone portraits aren't just for babies. You will never regret having too many photos of your children.


Session times are designed to accommodate one child per slot. It is highly recommended to book back to back slots for more than one child. If you do book one slot for more than one child, be advised we may not be able to make it through each setup for each child. We will also not have time for setups of siblings together.


Images from your session will be presented in an online password-protected proofing gallery within 2 weeks of your session date. You'll select your favorites for full editing.
