I'm Bella!

My work has a very editorial look. I am for classic, clean imagery that isn't heavily altered from real life.  My art is created through framing, composition, emotion and connection rather than props and trends.

Client Closet for BWP families

As a complimentary service for my clients, I’ve added several different dresses and coverall outfits to my Boston Client Closet. Moms have been asking for years for advice on what to wear for their sessions with me. I’ve created several blog posts to read through as well to help guide you to pick outfits that will photograph well. Feel free to read through them to help you narrow down your vision for your session. Here are links to What to Wear for your Fall session, Suggestions for your Spring Session, What to Wear (general tips depending on your session type), and finally for your indoor session.

This Boston Client Closet is just an additional resource to use if you find something you absolutely love, or even if you find yourself with nothing to wear for your session. I’ve had a lot of new moms worrying about what will fit post-partum. I have some beautiful wrap dresses that will fit your needs beautifully and accentuate your figure in motherhood.

Maternity Client Closet

Right now, I have a selection of dresses that will fit for maternity needs. They are dresses that will drape over your bump nicely. I have sizes from S-XXL. If you would like to purchase your own dress, the following are some of my favourite maternity dress vendors (clickable links):

If you choose to buy a dress for your session and don’t see a need to keep your dress, reach out before purchasing and ask about my gown buyback incentive.

Gown Buy Back Incentive

After your session, if I can purchase your dress from you, I’ll pay you 30% of what you paid for your gown, or receive up to $150 off a future session depending on the value of the dress. The gown then gets added to my Boston client closet. This is win-win for both of us!

Motherhood Dresses

These are the selection of gowns I currently have for you to borrow for our session together. If you see a dress you like, please let me know the name of the dress and I’ll prep it for you. I can steam it for you and bring to our session, or you can pick it up to wash/steam for safety. Due to COVID-19, I highly recommend for your comfort of mind to wash/steam the gowns (gentle cycle/read care instructions/air dry). All of my items are washed after every use. Luckily, many of these dresses are chosen to be less formal and it’s ok to be wrinkled.

About me

My path here is a bit different than most. I have a background in engineering and accounting/auditing. Like every good Asian daughter, I wanted to make my parents happy. With my first paycheck I bought a camera. I was instantly addicted to capturing life's details and observing people's interactions. When I moved from Toronto to Boston, I found myself without a job but with a fresh start. I got my first gig off Craigslist (crazy!) and have been fully booked ever since. The family that had booked me on Craigslist still keeps in touch with me to this day and I've photographed them quite a few times since. I've been featured in numerous publications both online and in print (Martha Stewart Weddings, Boston Magazine, The Knot). 8+ years later, you've stumbled onto my page.  

I am candid, communicative and caring. For those that know me, they know I have a pretty wicked sense of humour to get people to relax. My goal always is to ensure you are heard and that you are comfortable throughout the process. In my portfolio you can see each family's genuine happiness and comfort in their body language. It takes a lot to create the environment of trust. The rave reviews from my families afterward show you how much they care about me in return. This environment of trust builds from the beginning and I honestly attract the kindest families that allow me to create consistently strong images with heart in order to tell their story.

TOP RESOURCES

Everyone always wonders where their family, maternity or newborn session should take place. I'm here to guide you.

TOP RESOURCES

You've undoubtedly have heard of "golden hour". I explain in detail as to why light is everything and allows me to create the images I'm known for.
