While scheduling an evening session is typically easier, there are rewards in getting up early for a morning session.  On this particular day, the 8am session time was perfect- the park had just opened and was very quiet, and the sun was doing it’s magical thing- coming up through the trees, and creating beautiful light for us.

Oscar also worked his magic- giving some great poses, and modeling his bow tie.  As the sun rose higher in the sky, we finished up the session on the lagoon bridge, and created a pretty neat composition.  I love how Oscar is looking away in that shot- very GQ.

What a thrill to learn (from Erin’s very excited mom) that Erin and Jeremy are expecting a baby!

During our pre-session consultation at the studio, I learned that the nursery has an ocean theme going on.  And while we don’t have an ocean, per se, we do have Lake Erie, to serve as a backdrop for this maternity mini session.  It turned out to be a lovely evening at Rocky River Park, and we made use of the natural greenery, as well as the beach, to maximize variety in the short session.

Looking forward to their newborn portrait session in just a few short weeks!

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!
