Hi! I'm Maranda LeFebvre, owner of Heirloom + Oil.
Welcome. I’m so happy you are here.
Art has always been a passion of mine since I was a young child. I was always busy being creative. I am lucky enough to have a family that has always supported my creative side, even when I was super into making lipstick art on the walls. I've since moved on from lipstick murals, but still highly passionate about making art. I just mostly use paper, canvas, and a camera now.
I went to Brevard College and graduated with a degree in Painting and Photography in 2010. After college I worked various jobs from waiting tables to working in accounting departments and even Nannying. I dabbled in art along the way, but always on the side. I gave birth to my first child in 2016 and realized that I wanted to be a stay at home mom and that my time outside of that should be spent doing what I love to do, which is art. My husband has been my #1 fan and without him I wouldn't be chasing my dreams as I am today. It’s been very rewarding to watch my business take off and grow over the past year and I’m forever thankful for all my cheerleaders and supporters out there!
I'm highly nostalgic if you didn't notice. My goal is to create art that is meaningful to your family just as I would do for mine.
My photography ranges from unposed lifestyle work, self portraiture, to outdoor family and maternity sessions. No matter what I’m photographing I love rich contrast, warm tones, emotion, wind blown hair, flowy dresses, baby feet, and finding the art in every moment.
Here's the part where I tell you random facts about myself. I burn my tongue on hot pizza 99.9% of the time, I almost went to get my Masters in Occupational Therapy, I have a power yoga teaching certification, and we named our dog Hodor from Game of Thrones one week before the famous Hodor episode. We also just adopted the pugliest little half boston terrier half pug rescue who only has one good eye and I adore him.
Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to getting to know you! I can't wait to get started on your next custom family heirloom.
