Fall Family Photos – Larz Anderson

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.

Autumn in Boston

Fall is busy season for us photographers as the temperatures start to fall and the leaves start turning to brilliant hues of rust, gold and fire red. As a result, I am often faced with back to back sessions at a single location. So how does a photographer keep things fresh and not recycle the same poses and backgrounds? I am a photographer that easily gets bored, so I am constantly pushing myself to try and also to see new things. I will post the second of two back to back session in a link at the end of this blog post so you can see what another family received as their photos on the same day for fall family photos at Larz Anderson Park.

Larz Anderson Park

This park is very popular and for good reason. It has a perfect mix of architectural elements and bold colours during the fall season. Of course it’s absolutely overrun by photographers and families during this time of year. My style is very fast and fluid. If a choice spot is occupied, I just move on. My clients trust me to find pockets of light and gorgeous backgrounds. I don’t like ‘typical’ spots and often find myself quickly moving away from the ‘go to spots’ as I feel other families descending upon us. My sessions are very high energy as a result. It’s all about play and making shapes that please my eye. For more information please see the government website.

The Family

I’ve been photographing this wonderful clan of fellow Canadians for a number of years now. Their kids are older so it’s also about getting the more mature kids to open up and laugh genuinely. They are such great kids though so they made it easy for me. And talk about the family with the greatest hair ever!

The Fall Family Photos Larz Anderson

Please enjoy these images taken in the late afternoon just prior to my sunset session that I will link to at the bottom of this post.

Fall Family Photos in Larz Anderson Park
Classic family portrait for the holiday card is what I strive for in the first 5-10 minutes of a session when everyone is focused.

The added variable is the pup who is incredibly photogenic but also always on the move!

I love playing with light and structures.
Mom with her kids in Larz Anderson Park
Moms are usually taking a lot of photos and not in them, so I use my session to create a few for just her.

Miss M is quite the little model so she came up with this pose on her own.
Children playing and posing at Larz Anderson park
I love it when kids come up with their own poses. I think it helps them warm up and contributes in the most important way during my sessions.

The pup was getting anxious so dad took one for the team and watched the pup while we got some more for mom.

As they get older it’s always harder to get those wide open smiles, but I think he nailed it when we focused on a solo photo.

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.
