Pregnancy and childhood are truly fleeting. It is our job to freeze time through maternity and newborn portraits.

You will not get this opportunity again, and that is the reason that Legacy exists.

About Legacy Photography

At legacy, we stop time for you.

Maternity portraits and newborn photography are my passion. After years of chasing different genres of family photography, I fell head-over-heels in love with maternity and posed newborn photography genres about four years ago. I also was afforded a once in a lifetime opportunity to mentor with on of the best known newborn photographers in the States, just before she retired from the industry.

It was one of those moments where I felt like the Universe was telling me that I had opened the door to my future.

I now operate a private newborn and maternity photo studio located centrally in Pinellas County, Florida. I serve the Greater Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg areas, and have clients that travel from as far away as Orlando. 

I enjoy photographing pregnancy portraits on the beach and in my studio, and photography newborn babies in my photo studio that is fully stocked with all of the props, wraps, and backdrops that are needed for your baby's photo session.

Meet Whitney

For as long as I can remember, I have loved the ocean.

The tides at the mercy of the pull of the sun and moon, the unpredictability of ocean storms, and the cycle of life beneath the surface is mesmerizing.

I spent my younger years SCUBA diving in Cozumel and the Florida Keys. In my twenties, I studied coastal wetland ecology and explored the salt marshes of South Carolina and Louisiana in graduate school.

When my family and I decided to settle down somewhere, my few requirements were that it would be warm, on the coast, and be a great place to raise kids.

The little gem of Dunedin, Florida has been just that for me. There is no where else I'd rather call home.

The Ocean Is Where I Belong
