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!

This is me…

Here are some maternity pictures of me at 39 weeks.   They were taken by my husband….which was just a tiny bit STRESSFUL! :<)

Many of you moms are probably like me – you don’t have many pictures of yourself b/c you are the one always taking them!  So, I was determined to get these done before I had the baby.  For these I set everything up, and had a mirror in front of me. So, I was posing myself with the mirror, and then trying to direct my hubby. I’d look at the pictures he took and my arm was cut off, or I was off the background, or the angle was weird etc. So, I’d re-direct and we’d try the pose again….needless to say I was exhausted! We did it while our other two were at school and napping. I’d really like to get a couple with them, but I’m not sure if that will happen! :<)

a few things

Happy Spring Everyone! I wanted to mention a few things you might not know…

The first is that I’ve decided to add a great bonus to every session that I do.  I know most of you are on some kind of social network (Facebook, MySpace), have a blog, or at the very least have email!   So, for every session I do, I will give a complimentary CD (watermarked, low-resolution) of all the images from the session.  You won’t be able to print them (but you knew that was illegal, right) – so as long as you keep the watermark on them, you can post them where ever you like!

I am offering the CD for the benefit of both of us, and that brings me to the next sharable thing…. I’d love the advertising, and you benefit two ways.  1) you have a copy of all your beautiful images to share and 2) you get a $25 print credit for EACH person you refer who books a session.  Think about how fast that adds up!  Encourage family/friends to check out our website (www.cbportraits.com) and email me with any questions.  Those of you who have had sessions done know that custom photography isn’t cheap, but it will be one of the most cherished things you will ever invest in!

some of my favorite kids

These cute kiddos were *probably* my last session before I have my baby.  I keep saying that it seems, and then I decide to do just one more…I’m surprised at how well I’m able to get around at 36 weeks pregnant.  Especially with kids – they are fast, constantly on the move, and they don’t wait for you to get situated.   You have to be ready at every moment!

I’ve done several sessions for this family, and I’m thankful to have the privilege of capturing their kids as they grow into beautiful little people.  We started out pretty early in the morning, and it was surprising how bright the sun was.   It posed a small challenge, but were were able to find some pretty spring flowers and some shade.    These two are super cute, so getting good pictures wasn’t too hard!

As always, you’re amazing! Best of luck with the new baby!

boy in blue

I had a lot of fun with this 2 year old little guy! He’s so adorable and full of energy. We went over to a neighbors farm for part of the pictures. Mom was right – it was the perfect spot! Little Mr. L had a great time – he just ran and ran like a little energizer bunny. I’m not sure the word “stop” is in his vocabulary yet. And, whew! Being 33 weeks pregnant, I was huffing and puffing to keep up with him!
Then we went inside for some pictures. Mom has decorated the house so beautifully – we got some great shots in their bedroom and in the playroom. I could have stayed and taken pictures of this little guy all day!
I had a hard time choosing which ones to put here…he was just so cute and expressive. Here are some of my favorites…

Thanks for the great pictures of my nieces little boy. They are great.You are a very talented photographer.

[…] 2 1/2 year old brother, he is going to be pretty stinkin’ cute!  (I had a great time with Logan this past spring!)   Oh, but what a tiny little man – just under 5lbs, he was my smallest baby to […]

These pictures are fantastic. What beautiful children.
God has certainly blessed you.

baby love

Meet little Miss P!  She was the latest adorable little bundle I had the pleasure of photographing. I wish I could tell you her name – it’s so unique and lovely.  I think it is going to fit her perfectly!  (I have a policy not to divulge client’s names on my blog for privacy reasons).

She did a great job!  Despite my constant moving and positioning, I don’t think she cried once.  She joins a beautiful family and an equally adorable big sister.   Take a look….
