My heart becomes so happy when another heirloom session comes together just as we had hoped.  From the video to the still images…such an amazing keepsake for families.  I can’t help but want one… 😉

Enjoy more sweet moments from some of my favorite people.  I can’t wait for them to look through these images again years from now. xoxo

We have had people ask how we came up with the name Heirloom Sessions.  Yes, it may seem obvious, but there truly was meaning behind it.  I come from a very musical family (hence my name ;).  We listened to all kinds of artists growing up…one of them being Amy Grant.  I knew the words to every song and wanted to be just like her when I grew up.  There was one song in particular that continues to be a part of my family even today.  I can’t tell you the number of times we have sang this song, whether it be in the car, at home or at church…especially this time of year.  These lyrics have founded the true meaning of heirloom to me.  So, when this whole discussion began to develop for these sessions I couldn’t help but think of ‘heirloom.’  Just read the words below (or listen to the link attached) and you will see where this inspiration derived.

HEIRLOOMS by Amy Grant

Up in the attic,
Down on my knees.
Lifetimes of boxes,
Timeless to me.
Letters and photographs,
Yellowed with years,
Some bringing laughter,
Some bringing tears.

Time never changes,
The memories, the faces
Of loved ones, who bring to me,
All that I come from,
And all that I live for,
And all that I’m going to be.
My precious family
Is more than an heirloom to me.

Wisemen and shepherds,
Down on their knees,
Bringing their treasures
To lay at his feet.
Who was this wonder,
Baby yet king?
Living and dying;
He gave life to me.

Time never changes,
The memory, the moment
His love first pierced through me,
Telling all that I came from,
And all that I live for,
And all that I’m going to be.
My precious savior
Is more than an heirloom to me.
