pricing

Portraits for families, maternity sessions, anniversary sessions and more. Pricing includes up to 2 adults and up to 3 children. These sessions last around 40 minutes and about 60 images will be created.

Newborn sessions will have additional 20 minutes allocated for feeding/changing/soothing so there is no pressure for the session to be done in 40 minutes.  I will just wait at a distance to give your family space and time to soothe your baby.  I'll return when you're ready. My sessions are always child-led. My goal is to decrease our exposure time to each other while also removing the stress from expectations that things will go to plan.

High resolution digital files from your session will be delivered via a password-protected gallery (unless your session is private) so you can download and share to your heart's content. Images are included complimentary with your session fee if you're okay with my model release. If you'd prefer to keep your images private, images may be purchased for a flat fee of $100 (which works out to about $2 per image). You will also receive a USB with your session images and 10 complimentary 4x6 prints if contracts are signed within 4 business days of receiving them. For at home sessions, video clips will be incorporated into your slideshow. Please contact me for details.  You will be immediately enrolled in my Loyalty Program and receive 10% off future portrait sessions. Additional prints and products can be purchased directly from your gallery. Travel radius up to 45 minutes from Davis Square by car are included. For further distances, please contact me for details.  I discount Davis Square area sessions or location piggyback sessions by $50.

"We first used Bella in early 2015 for our daughter's newborn shoot. It couldn't have gone any better. It's been even nicer to have Bella document our daughter growing up in additional sessions, including our wedding. We're now blessed to have another newborn in our lives and it is without hesitation that we'll be using Bella again."

- Kevin, dad of 2

"Bella was part of our 'vendor dream team' for our August 2015 wedding. It was great working with her throughout the whole process. While planning our wedding, we knew for sure that we wanted a really good photographer to shoot our wedding and we definitely found the best! We absolutely loved how all of our pictures came out!!
Bella is great with natural light and captured all of the moments of our wedding day perfectly! Leading up to our big day, Bella was very responsive, approachable, and easy to work with. On day of, her husband was on hand to assist her and they were prompt, professional, and captured our day perfectly. She literally went above and beyond for us. We would truly recommend Bella to anyone looking for the best!!"
- Gloria, bride

"Bella is AHMAZINGGGG!! Our wedding was yesterday, 9.19.15, and Bella was hands down, our FAVORITE vendor. Her talent is one of a kind but even better, she is a wonderful person who kept me calm and relaxed. She is creative and efficient, as well as personable and open to our ideas and thoughts. Our wedding party couldn't say enough about how easy she was to work with. I was able to enjoy every minute of our wedding and have beautiful pictures that capture the moment. She already sent me sneak peak pics later that night!! I look forward to working with Bella on future baby pics. BELLA is the BEST :D"

- Doris, bride

" I started following Bella's page in anticipation of the birth of our second daughter. Day after day, I saw Bella's beautiful portraits come across my Facebook feed. What impressed me the most was the consistency- she showcases teasers from all of her families and they are all breathtaking (and when it comes to photography, I'm quite picky). Of course on the day of our newborn shoot, it haled (yes, in July). Bella immediately rescheduled us. Then on the actual day, our toddler AND baby had multiple meltdowns. Through it all, Bella remained funny, cool, and calm, even with a stressed out mommy. Even more amazing, Bella captured those precious, fleeting moments I had hoped for. In addition to loving her work, I really like Bella-- she is extremely down to earth and friendly and our entire family looks forward to working with her very soon!"
Shirley, mom of 2

"I'm just signing up for our fourth session with Bella and I can't wait! She is a joy to work with and has an absolute gift for bringing out the best in kids and capturing wonderful moments between parent and child."


- Cathy, mom of Aleah

Newborn weekday session | $1000 + 6.25% mA sales tax

discontinued for 2020

This package is for those that want to fully document their baby's 1st year. Included in my basic Baby 1 Year package is the custom in-home weekday newborn session, and two additional weekday sessions. These sessions can be any milestone a family chooses. Some popular milestones include; a maternity session; 4-7 months when the baby can push up fully and maybe sit for a few seconds and they're chock full of delicious rolls; when grandparents visit or 100 days milestone rolls around; baby's 1st snowfall experience; a trip to a sentimental family spot or to document a tradition; and finally when the 1 year mark arrives. Sessions must be used in the first 14 months of the baby's life. If you would like to upgrade a weekday session to weekend session (excluding newborn session), the fee is $180. In addition, due to COVID-19 I am also offering complimentary video calls for 1 year package families so that they can capture their newborn in their home setting. These sessions last about 40 minutes. I will walk you through posing and wrapping your newborn so that you can get some keepsake images of them in their first 2 weeks of life. More information on this gifted session HERE.

As an optional add-on to Baby 1 Year Packages, a petite weekday maternity session or Fresh-48 session can be added for $450 + MA state sales tax. These sessions last about half an hour. CANCELLED for 2020: For the Fresh-48 session no prep is necessary and I come to you in the first 48 hours of the baby's arrival. Fresh-48 is stress-free and just about the joy of welcoming this new life into the world through interaction and fleeting moments. Please contact me for details and add-ons such as weekend supplements.

Special benefits of the Baby 1 year include early calendar access when I release dates for bookings, additional newborn session time to account for a fussy newborn, more creative photos, outdoor location change, or an uncooperative older sibling and discounted add-on sessions to the package. Additional images are always created for Baby 1 Year Package families and will be included in your gallery. 60 birth announcement, thank you, or holiday cards are included with this package. If you plan on doing a weekend session, weekend rates are discounted with the package. A free digital album design featuring my favourite images will be created at the end of the package and be available via digital download. Your images will be uploaded to a password protected gallery and you will receive a USB and 10 complimentary 4x6 prints for each session if contracts are signed within 5 business days of receiving them. Images are included with session fee if you're okay with my model release. Keeping things private will be a flat fee of $80 per session (which works out to about $1 per image). A minimum of 100 images will be included in each gallery.

This is one of my most popular packages as parents keep coming back for more photos of their baby as my images never disappoint.  This way we can keep an open dialogue to plan our next session. I love brainstorming ideas with parents.

For a limited time only I am including family films in my delivered products. Baby 1 year children will lock in this complimentary product for the duration of their 1 year package as an added bonus! For more information, please reach out for my online magazine or click here to read more. Due to COVID-19, these mini films can only be created if time allows. I want to keep you all safe. If the session goes to plan without time for soothing, etc and children are cooperative, please let me know if video is a priority and I will see if I can realistically work this in. If things go to plan, I don't see an issue. However, I always plan for things not going to plan because... children.

" I continue to marvel at how lucky we were to be blessed with the overcast skies and the deserted beach, and most of all with a photographer as absolutely gifted as you. Whenever I show anyone the photos that you have taken so far, the response is: "Oh my goodness (as the person cries out)- those are the most beautiful wedding photos I have ever seen. I would expect to see those photos on the cover of a magazine!"

- Suzanne, Bride 

"We are planning our fifth photo shoot with Bella since we had our son. Ever since we first had pictures taken with her, I have been amazed with the beautiful moments she captures with such grace. Somehow she can find a smile or a look even when our kiddo is not interested in being photographed. Her way with children is unmatched; she can engage and distract while also setting up great lighting and scenery. I love following her Facebook page and enjoy all the lovely photos she shares, which speak for themselves of her incredible talent. Thank you for the great work you do! Look forward to another batch of beautiful photos to capture this year of development in our son's life."

- Marisa, mom of Dermot

" Bella has been photographing my family since my first born nearly 4 years ago. We keep going back to Bella because she is amazing! She is great to work with and she is amazing with my girls."

- Jayne, mom of 2

If you want to take things slow and just want me to be an observer of your family's moments, then this is the package for you. This is a relaxed session where I can document you at your backyard, or accompany you as you go out for a visit to the beach or a hike in the outdoors (discontinued for 2020: indoors at home, your weekly grocery run, or playtime at a neighbourhood splash park). It includes up to 2 adults and 3 kids in an immediate family. I will take a photojournalistic approach to documenting things so you don't have to get the kids to sit there and smile. I don't control or direct this session and act as a fly on the wall. Reach out to me if you have an idea of what is sentimental that you want captured. Your keepsake images will be uploaded into a gallery and you will also receive a USB with your session's high resolution images. A minimum of 150 images will be created for your gallery.  A slideshow featuring your choice images will be created with accompanying video clips. Included are 10 complimentary 4x6 prints if contracts are signed within 4 business days of receiving them. These products are included at no additional charge in exchange for a model release, or may be purchased for $100 without a model release (which works out to less than $1 per image). You will be immediately enrolled in my Loyalty Program and receive 10% off future portrait sessions. Additional prints and products can be purchased directly from your gallery. Please contact me for details. Travel radius up to 60 minutes from Davis Square by car included. For further distances, please contact me for details.
