Boston Public Gardens Spring Family

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.

Getting all the pricing details

I first met this beautiful family when little Madison was born. They live in the South End but were relocating after med school to a new home town. Before they left, they wanted to capture the iconic Boston Public Gardens one last time because this was where their baby girl was born. I am always so flattered when I get invited back as the family photographer. Their Boston Public Gardens family session started in the morning before the park got too busy. Nothing beats the weeping willows, the pond and duckling statues when it comes to capturing signature Boston for a family photography session. Please scroll down to see our images | Boston public gardens photographer.

If you’re looking for parking in the area, I always tell parents to plan for an extra 20 minutes to find parking downtown. Even as a regular, I often find myself having to circle a few times to find street parking. Especially now that so many meters surrounding the gardens near the TAJ/The Newbury have been removed. The best bet is to go to the underground lot. For information, please see this LINK. Even if using the underground parking, please allow at least 20 minutes to park underground and walk all the way back up.

The Outfits

Mom Christi has fantastic taste so I had no doubts she’d pull it all off again. Just look at that adorable pink romper that matches mom’s rose shirt. The key to pulling it all together is that the romper also features the same blues in dad’s shirt. I always suggest to keep the palette to a maximum of 2 colours so it all looks cohesive. They definitely nailed that Spring vibe. When you book a session with me I consult you on outfits and provide an outfit planning tool to help coordinate your spring outfits.

The Family Images

Like all independently minded 1 year olds, miss Madison had her own ideas and we played and sang songs to keep her entertained. Her happiest times of course were when she was left alone to crawl about. Those photos come at the end and you can see her truly come alive. Ahh babies… they always have their own ideas. As a family photographer, you have to move quickly, think even faster and be prepared for those glorious smiles that fade in a microsecond.

Please enjoy their classic iconic Boston Public Gardens Family Session

I love getting a ‘safe photo’ first to ensure the parents’ must have photos are grabbed and out of the way. It takes so much pressure off the rest of the session

There is so much variety in the public gardens to serve as a backdrop. With babies you just have to keep moving.

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.


Starting in late Summer of 2021, Bella Wang Photography will be offering Studio Sessions in a brand new studio location right in the heart of the South End in downtown Boston.

Currently only accepting clients willing to sign a model release for these special portfolio-building rates.
