"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

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.
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. 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.
" 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 home, or accompany you as you go out for 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 30 minutes from Davis Square by car included. For further distances, please contact me for details.
My wedding packages start at $3400 and include up to 7 hours of wedding coverage. A complimentary mini engagement session is included for all my couples. During the mini session I coach you on posing and during that time we get to know each other. This way there are no surprises on the wedding day. It's one way I set myself apart from other photographers. Making people comfortable in front of my camera is how I achieve the happy, timeless and beautiful images I'm known for. My focus is to capture things that are important to you; from guests to the hand-picked decorations. I get to know each one of my couples during the complimentary engagement session so that we are on the same page in terms of vibe for the big day. I find people are much more communicative and comfortable around me after the session, which helps me do my job when the added stress of the wedding day gets piled on. Additional hours of coverage may be added. High resolution digital images are always included and you will receive a gallery to share with family and friends. A minimum of 50 images per hour of coverage will be included in your gallery. You will also receive a USB with these images as a keepsake. High resolution digital images are included complimentary with model release. A flat fee of $300 for private galleries. If contracts are signed within 7 days of receiving them, I gift 10 4x6 prints with the engagement session and 20 4x6 prints with your wedding set. This way you have something tangible to appreciate from your day. Travel radius up to 45 minutes from Davis Square by car included. For further distances, please contact me for details.
From the beginning I always believed in being upfront and transparent. I want families walking away with their hearts full and minds relaxed knowing that there won't be a sales pitch after the fact. We all live busy lives and making decisions is an added stress. I wouldn't want a family to have regret about not being able to purchase all that they wanted. If you book with me, I don't hold anything back.
Back when I was researching my own wedding photographer, I wanted someone to capture the day to the fullest and in the most beautiful way. I searched for someone that was upfront with pricing and provided digital negatives as a keepsake. Part of my process of hiring someone included wanting to see consistency. My wedding photographer kept his brides up to date with new wedding sets showcasing real brides on real wedding days. Every week I saw new work which showed me his dedication to each one of his brides no matter her budget.
When designing my business I knew I wanted to be as forthcoming as well. I wanted to show it all. I wanted to show how I captured each unique family. I wanted to show real families so that future families could see themselves having a session with me.
This lead to my decision to implement the same all-inclusive package when I started my photography business. In order to show my skill, I require a full and constantly updating portfolio. Your model release helps me achieve that. I charge a nominal $100 flat fee which amounts to less than $2 per image if I cannot share your images.
My style of photography is a mix of staged & directed, lifestyle (minimal direction) and total chaos (the end of the session free-for-all). This results in a multitude of images that will be added to your gallery. Your session fee includes your on location experience that lasts about an hour. You will receive high resolution digital files so you can print them to your heart's desire. Lead times for images change, but typically you can expect your gallery to be done in about 3 weeks. You will be presented with a USB and 10 complimentary 4x6 prints of my favourite images so you have something tangible to keep from your session. The gifted prints are a thank you to those that send back all signed contracts within 4 business days of receiving them. Everyone hates admin work and chasing documents, so I reward those that make my life a little easier. For wedding coverage, all of my couples receive a complimentary engagement session so we can get to know one another better and I can coach you on posing. This way there are no surprises for your big day and you know what to expect in terms of quality and style. You also will receive a gallery for your engagement and wedding day images.
