Ensure your visual legacy for future generations.


About Me

Hi, I’m Erin - a portrait photographer and third generation small business owner based in Louisville, KY serving Jefferson County & Oldham County.  You can think of me as a legacy designer and a memory curator. Since childhood, I’ve loved the power of portraits as silent storytellers connecting one generation to another.

My job is to stop time for a precious moment and capture people as the masterpieces you know them to be.

It would be an honor to design an heirloom-worthy photograph for you and your loved ones that will be treasured for generations.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is legacy portraiture?

Legacy portraiture is the culmination of a family’s story in photographs - ones that will stand the test of time and be passed down from generation to generation. Go beyond a signature portraiture session with a Spirit Interview, Soul Album, or Heritage Gallery.

Where do your sessions take place?

Inside my home studio where the rain, snow and Tennessee humidity can’t stop us, the restrooms are clean, and my stash of toys, goldfish crackers and books are readily available for the kiddos.

Can I just have digital photographs?

As a legacy portrait artist, I specialize in providing printed artwork for your home. Any print purchase will be accompanied by a corresponding digital file (i.e. .jpg) perfect for sharing with family and friends.

Do you provide guidance on what to wear?

Absolutely! When you book your session, we’ll also book a Style Appointment where we’ll cover colors, wardrobe, backdrop and style, so you can look your best and the photos will complement your home.
