Spring brings flowers, warmer days, and outdoor sessions.  It also brings First Communions!  After days of rain, it was a treat to see Antonio at his house for some portraits to celebrate this big milestone.  We incorporated a few family heirlooms- a prayer book that belonged to his Grandfather, as well as a rosary.  But being a modern kid, Antonio had to strike a modern pose as well- doing his best LeBron- to end the session.  Guess which photo is Antonio’s favorite? HA!


What a treat to have baby Carter in the studio for his first photo session!  Calm and sleepy, he allowed multiple set ups and poses.  Big sister Avery, a BLP First Year plan graduate herself, did an incredible job of snuggling her new brother, who she’s clearly devoted to.

Nautical touches were used in this session- shades of blue and white, stripes, and even a whale!  I enjoy incorporating themes, while still maintaining a classic and clean look for newborn portraits.



Trees and flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, it’s time to celebrate Moms for all that they do!  Nurturing, teaching, soothing, and taking care of all the errands- doctors visits, grocery and toy stores, fixing meals.  Sounds like a day in the life of a pet Mom, too.  Chewbone Studio salutes these ladies and is pleased to offer Human Mom & Me portraits.  This was our 2nd year offering these studio minis, and I’m so thrilled that we had nearly twice the number of Moms take part.  The purpose of these photos is to document loving relationships; and there were lots of wet kisses, an entire dog worth of hair, a few barks, and so many treats and snuggles!

Looking forward to next year!


A ray of sunshine on a dreary March morning, Evie brought all of her princess friends and stuffies to her studio mini.  She danced, sang songs, and had some big belly laughs.  A fun time celebrating this little Miss turning FOUR!  I can still remember arriving at her house for her newborn session like it was yesterday.  Where does the time go?

And of course, we had to get all the princesses together for their group shot.  That’s what being 4 years old is all about.

Love all the variety in this short session, as well.

Happy Birthday Evie!



Meet 9 week old Rider, a Yorkie/Silky terrier mix, who is just the cutest!  With all puppies, a lot of treats and a lot of patience is the rule of thumb for a studio session.  But with that adorable button nose, thick hair, and Rider’s best duck friend at his side, it was all worth it.  Love these pet portraits!

Eager to explore the studio, Rider would give me one snap of the shutter before he ran off the backdrop and away from us! Thanks to some quick thinking, and a pair of tall boots, we were able to corral this little bundle of energy, if even for a few minutes.  How adorable is he?!?!

Puppyhood is fleeting, and worth commemorating with a professional portrait session.  In just a few weeks post-session, Rider has already changed in appearance.  I know that his Mom will treasure these photos and memories.
