The Heirloom Portrait Project

These sessions are at the heart of Kelly Mays Photography. The Heirloom Portraits Project is a photographic project documenting 3 generations. These sessions are designed for annual custom portrait sessions. Each session is fully designed and executed to reflect your family culture, values, and genealogical history. These sessions are curated for large printing and display. Each Session is delivered with a custom USB drive & collection of 8x10 images as well as a collection of re-touched digital images. Clients may add on solo portraits of each member al la carte. Please allot additional session time for each additional solo portrait sitting. These sessions are best in the late summer and fall months and require a more extensive season of design and planning with the photographer.

The Heirloom Portrait Project is designed to capture three generations of the men or women in your family in the style of a commissioned victorian or baroque painting. Each session is posed, planned, and props are used minimally and intentionally to provide a story within the image. Ideal candidates for this project are families that want to continue to document through custom portraiture the generational trio grow older. I recommend investing in an heirloom session bi-annually to grow your Heirloom Collection and effectively document the changes and growth of 3 generations.
