About Us


In 1979, Mary LaBelle moved from her home town, Burlington, and began a little photography business. She had a deep passion for the art and a deep desire to continue learning. For the next 5 years, she primary took sport photos until she officially opened LaBelle Portrait Studio out of her home in 1984 . Since then, Mary has continued to serve the Whitewater and surrounding communities with providing beautiful senior, children and family portraits.


In 1993, Kevin Alvarado joined her team performing outside tasks. However, a couple months later, Mary asked Kevin to help with some needed inside responsibilities. Mary's love of photography carried over to Kevin where he was eager to learn all he could. Over the years Mary and Kevin continued learning and keeping up with technology by attending photography schools and seminars. In 2006, Kevin became the primary photographer and in January, 2009 Kevin purchased LaBelle Studio from Mary.
