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.

Boston Maternity session

Maternity photos are usually taken in the last trimester between weeks 28 and 32. However, I always tell expectant mothers that every body is different. It really depends on when your body is ready and the bump pops and shows. You also want to still be mobile and comfortable to ensure that you don’t stress yourself out during the session while also feeling your best. It’s a short window, so it’s best to reach out to a maternity photographer in Boston whose style you are in love with before you get to this point so you know you can just focus on planning the session to ensure you’re captured how you want to be.

Finding a Boston maternity photographer starts with knowing your style and being true to yourself. You can ask your friends and family for referrals to get a sense of the styles that are available as well as find out who delivers a great product and service. Once you decide on the style you like, take a look at their packages. There are many different types of photographers and just as many different types of packages. Find the right one for you. My pricing page lists out my pricing structure and always includes digitals. Next, check out their reviews and read the reviews to get a sense of why a Boston Maternity photographer is so loved. If you want to check out some of my reviews, see my Facebook account, Google business page, or Yelp.

Capturing your style

My style of photography is quite candid. It’s not overly styled, nor fussy. I love just capturing families as they are – allowing their personalities to shine through. When I’m in a family’s home, I get an immediate sense of their style and I always get inspired to create my best work. In preparing for my sessions, I always ask for photos of outfits and your home first to get a sense of your vibe and style. Every person is unique and my way of understanding you and your needs is by seeing the pieces you’ve invested in, and how you’ve laid out things in your home if we are doing an in-home session. The flow of the fabric, patterns and shape also give me a sense of your style, as well as potential poses that would work with your outfit choices.

Modern Boston Maternity session at home

Isn’t this home stunning? I loved the monochromatic aspect as well as the high impact design elements. Those windows are TO DIE for. This lady seriously has a great sense of style. She found me through a referral from another one of my Baby 1 Year package stylish mamas through an online moms group. I’m so thankful that my families have had such great experiences that they are telling everyone about me. THANK YOU! This is her first session of her baby’s 1 year package. Unfortunately due to covid-19, we were only able to do a virtual Facetime session for her newborn session, but I can’t wait to see her outdoors for her baby’s first session when it’s safe again to do so.

We talked about outfits and this mama-to-be sent me some options. I’m so happy we decided on this black number because this dress is so chic, simple and just meshes so well with the rest of her home. It really set the tone for this maternity session and was a great contrast to her husband’s light-coloured ensemble. Her pup was a perfect cream tone too and he was a perfect accent!

When things are calm and fun during a session, I love to play! They really trusted me and that allowed me to get creative because I knew they would appreciate it.

She bought this piece off Etsy. It’s such a great source for some modern pieces.

If you’re planning on sourcing from Etsy, I recommend you buy RTS (ready to ship) or plan ahead because shipping times aren’t your typical Amazon Prime shipping speeds. Planning ahead is worth it.

I hope you loved seeing how my style of photography translated in capturing this family at home. Every session is different. It really depends on the vibe of the couple and that is defined by their personalities, outfits, location and just the mood of the light.

For another maternity session in Boston, please check out this Esplanade Charles River session with the skyline as a backdrop. It’s a little different than this session since it’s outdoors. Sunset or sunrise are the best times for outdoor photos. Have a look and I think you’d agree.

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.
