Ready for Beautiful Fall Family Portraits?

With the changing of the seasons from summertime to autumn often comes both the excitement of fresh starts and favorite traditions (shout out to pumpkin spice everything) as well as the reminder that time might actually be FLYING by. You have a thousand things on your plate, and we know that there are not many occasions to slow down. But we want to give you a reason to press pause on the busyness by creating a luxury experience that will bring everyone together!

Meet the beautiful Bean family! We were introduced to these lovely souls for Cassidy’s  senior portrait session  a few years ago, and it wasn’t long before we realized we were guaranteed to love the rest of the family. We are excited to grow alongside them and capture their spirit and laughter over the years to come!

There comes a time in life when getting all of your babies together in the same place at the same time becomes, well, a bit of a miracle. What we love about turning your Luxury Portrait Experience into a family event is that you will have lasting reminders of your loved ones every time you see your wall portraits or open your Artbook. We get it…photoshoots are not everyone’s cup of tea (if we’re shooting straight, most dads and dudes come only because they love YOU). But we are experts at turning photoshoots into experiences that the entire family will enjoy!

Let’s just talk about the epic Fall fashion of the Bean family for a moment. The layers, the texture, the color palette…absolutely dreamy! We love how each person was able to express their style while still looking completely in step with everyone else. Check out more of our favorite family fashion to be inspired for your upcoming shoot!

The Happy Anniversary Experience at Studio B Portraits featuring the Hanson’s

I have legitimately talked about this couple and their anniversary shoot more than I can count. I seriously love "love" and for those of us that have been heart-ing the same human for a long time... it's even more special so celebrating with a “happy anniversary” session is pretty awesome.

Show Us Your Wall: Decorating with Family Portraits featuring the Johnsons

Full disclosure, I have zero hobbies… none (unless going to the Bellevue Square candy shop is considered a thing.) And before you mention spending time with my family and friends, let me stop you right there and say - NOPE not a hobby, does not count because what I like to do with them is take their pictures (just ask them, I’m obsessed) I’m either taking a picture or thinking about taking a picture… with a follow up of making something from the pictures (books, framed portraits, wall series… seriously it’s endless.) Luckily for my clients, my obsession is your good fortune because it’s equally awesome whether I’m doing it for you or for myself. Cut to this fabulous Show Us Your Wall share featuring the family portraits we created featuring the Johnsons.

So many smiles and snuggles for this Spring session, we just had to make this wall-worthy moment something special that they could enjoy every day. PC:  StudioBportraits.com

A love letter to the people of Jamaica at Beaches Resort Ocho Rios

This is a love letter to Jamaica and the amazing hospitality of the people that hosted us at Beaches Resort in Ocho Rios. Prior to our visit I knew nothing of this magical place but when the unexpected happened two days before our family vacation, we zigged when life zagged. (Link to: crane crushes cruise ship)

With just 48 hours to figure out this “first world” not really a problem, problem we decided to call in a professional. (Natalie was referred to us and I’m pretty sure she should be wearing a cape… true super hero travel agent skills - I literally will never book my own trips again. The amount of stress she took off our shoulders was next level awesome) She told us about this beautiful Jamaica resort and she had us at “all-inclusive, sun-filled days”

Studio B Portraits vacation portrait session_ Ocho Rios Beaches Jamaica_0280.jpg

From the moment we landed, we knew it was going to be amazing. You’d think it would be the tropical weather and beauty of the blue seas & skies but honestly… it is the people. As we were driving with our guide Winchester, his pride of their history and the philosophy of their culture was fascinating. I could never do it justice but let me tell you… even my kids were completely transfixed by his stories. It is clear that the island counts hospitality as their main export and they should because my goodness they are good at making you feel special.

Studio B Portraits vacation portrait session_ Ocho Rios Beaches Jamaica_0282.jpg

On our last night of the trip, we all went around the table sharing what we loved most and to no ones surprise… it was the people, the staff, the Jamaican way that topped the list. (Followed quickly by crazy good food, snorkeling, banana boat rides, water slides and unlimited drinks & dessert)

Thank you for letting me share. I am so full of gratitude for this collective time with my family and since I know a lot of you are always looking for special experiences with your own tribe… you might want to consider Jamaica ;-) (I know I sound like an infomercial but there is no promotion or compensation from anyone… just a personal endorsement from our family to yours) That being said…

The gangs all here.

The elegance of Ciara’s stunning pink gown was jaw dropping the moment we set eyes on it. Who says a baby bump means you can’t absolutely rock a red carpet worthy wardrobe?! The lux element that this brought to Ciara’s maternity portraits is worth sharing as you gather inspiration to set your portraits apart from the rest!

There's always a good reason to celebrate family | Bellevue Park Family Photography

We believe there is always a good reason to celebrate your family - whether it’s to document a milestone or just to say I love you! For the Hill family, they checked yes for both of those reasons at their Family Portrait Session in Bellevue Park…celebrating Sabrina’s upcoming graduation from Loyola Marymount University as well as just spending quality time with each other for a long overdue family photo.

Of course their family portraits would not have been complete without their Shiba fur baby, Thyme! We spent the afternoon strolling and laughing with these four, and the genuine love for one another that was in the air was all we needed to be inspired to create some photo magic!
