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.

The Harvard Grad

Collin’s mom reached out to me during the summer before his final year at Harvard. She told me about the horror story of her other son’s graduation photos as organized by the university itself and didn’t want to miss the opportunity to capture keepsake images of her last child during his final year at Harvard. I am so incredibly fortunate that she immediately fell in love with my work and knew I could do a great job capturing her son with the gorgeous campus as the background. Congrats to the soon-to-be Harvard grad.

Harvard Campus and Grounds

Most of our images took place on the Harvard Bridge, also known as Mass Ave Bridge. We woke up before dawn and beat the sun as it rose over the Charles River. Collin was such a sport meeting me that early in the morning, but since he was a track athlete, he was used to early morning practices and hours. We then moved to his dorm quad to capture a few final images, including an image to use for his LinkedIn profile. His brother popped in for a few images because coincidentally he was in town for a wedding. My style is always to just capture people as they are. That’s why you get the most genuine expressions and reactions anyway.

Congratulations to this handsome and smart young man. I’m so excited to be seeing them again in a couple of weeks as his family flies in from the West Coast to attend his graduation. I can’t wait to share those images once they’re done as well.

I have some standard portraits of the boys too, but these are the ones I’m most happy with.

Congratulations Collin on your upcoming graduation from Harvard.

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.
