CB Portraits Photography bio picture
  • Welcome!

    My name is Bonnie Ingraham, and I'm the girl behind the lens.
    I am a photographer in Lancaster County, PA, and my style is simple, clean and creative. The "CB" in my website stands for 'captured beautifully' because that is what I do. Whether it is your precious newborn or your precocious toddler, I will create beautiful memories that you will treasure forever. I'd love to tell you more about myself - come on over here!

My baby boy…

Well, my baby boy just isn’t a baby anymore!  It’s hard to believe he’s now 6 years old.   Aiden has so many positive qualities – he’s smart, kind, helpful, silly, thoughtful, obedient, handsome…I could go on!  He is such a great big brother (or a “double big brother” as he says); I’m just so thankful God has placed him in our family.  I can’t wait to see how his personality continues to grow.

*Sigh* I was going down memory lane, looking for pictures of him through the years.  And, wow, we have hundreds of pictures – it was so hard to choose!  So, I might have gone a little overboard here, but I coudn’t narrow them down any more – here are some of my favorites.  :)

August 4th, 2003 – Aiden Clay joined our family.

Off to his first day of Kindergarten!

And now he is a “double big brother.”   He does a great job helping to take care of his sisters – and I know he will continue to as he gets older.  Happy Birthday Aiden Clay – we love you soooo much!

How fun. He is absolutely adorable — at any and all ages! My favorite is definitely the butterfly pic. That’s hysterical! I also love the snowman picture. Too sweet. Happy birthday, buddy!!

Chris & Betsy ~ engagement

It has been a while since Courtney and I have done a wedding, so we were excited to get together with Chris and Betsy for their engagement pictures.  We had a gorgeous cloudy day and a great couple willing to try anything!  I always love shooting in downtown Lititz – it has so many great places.  Here are a few of my favorites from our session.  Chris and Betsy, we can’t wait for the wedding!

And more…

Here are some more of Ellie.  I hope you aren’t getting tired of seeing them!  She’s such a great little model.  I think infants are one of my favorite subjects to photograph.  They can be very challenging, but the effort is so rewarding.   It’s been fun having my little makeshift studio set up in the house ready to use whenever I get a chance.  My family is probably ready for the “mess” to disappear.  But, I know that I only have a short time left to get these precious newborn shots.  So, here’s some more…

And, by chance, I caught her smiling!  I should have had her flat on the ground though – poor thing looks like she has a double chin already! :)

Our Ellie – 4 days old

Aside from being sleep deprived, we are all in love with our new little family member!  For the first few days I’m not sure she was too pleased with the world, but now she is starting to be awake and happy for longer periods of time.   She is such a tiny little peanut – very content to be held and snuggled in blankets.   Our older two have done great!  They love to help in any way they can.  I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful and healthy family.

You probably don’t remember me from PCB, but … Wow!! I had no idea you were a photographer!! I knew Brian always had great pics on his facebook, and now I know why. You are amazing!!!

And congratulations on Ellie. She is gorgeous! Great name, too. Our daughter is Isabel, but we call her “Ellie.” :)

Hi Tanya – thanks so much! Unfortunately, I don’t think I remember you. Although I visited your website and really loved it! You sound like someone I would love to know! :)

She’s Here!

We would like to announce the arrival of Ellie Elizabeth!  She was born Wednesday weighing 7 lbs 6 oz.  We were actually very surprised at her size.  For being a week late, we were sure she would weigh close to what my other two did (8-9lbs).   So, we are in the midst of trying to adjust to life with a new infant.  She’s doing great so far – keeping us awake at night just like she is supposed to.   Aiden and Savannah love to give her pacifiers, cover her with blankets, and show her toys.  Yesterday Savannah came down from her nap and didn’t see Ellie.  So she says, “Mommy, where’s your new baby sister?”

Here she is – 2 days old.  This was about the most I could accomplish at this point, but I promise there will be lots more to come!2 days old
