South End Boston Newborn Photographer

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 Location

Being a South End newborn lifestyle photographer, I travel all over Boston and love to see the unique homes that people style and put together. I am always so impressed that their homes look straight out of a magazine, especially when just welcoming a fresh newborn. South End homes typically don’t have a lot of light, so I was surprised to walk into a loft apartment in this South End location. Who doesn’t love a bank of windows and white walls?

I love the neighbourhood as well. You are surrounded by new restaurants including a favourite of mine, Bar Mezzena. Also, how can you think of South End without not also thinking of SOWA?

The Outfits

Christi originally picked out another outfit completely. Upon seeing the styling of her home, we quickly picked out this flowy blouse to complete the look and I couldn’t be happier with how things coordinated. When picking out outfits for a newborn session, I always guide new moms to look for something flowy. White also helps to reflect light and fill in any shadows you may have picked up from the lack of sleep during the first few weeks of motherhood.

What is a lifestyle newborn session?

My style is a mix of posed newborn images, lifestyle family images and also establishing photos of your home. This way you have a perfect little time capsule of this part of your lives. I love incorporating the home because a studio just feels like you’re leaving a part of the story untold. Parents have also told me that getting out of the home with a fresh newborn is also quite the challenge. This way, I come to you which helps to relieve some stress I’m sure.

The Newborn Lifestyle Images

Newborn lifestyle images don’t have to be completely unposed. I love to have one iconic photo for announcements created for each session

If baby is asleep I start with these images first. During this time I try and capture little details and tiny smiles.

South End Newborn Photographer

I love intimate spaces with gorgeous lights. As you can see, this entire session was photographed in just one room, Madison’s nursery. I don’t need a lot of space to create great images. It’s about documenting your home in its best light. I am a natural light photographer and these lofts are bathed in the most gorgeous natural sunlight most of the day.

When scheduling your newborn session, keep an eye on the light of your home. Typically, I schedule my sessions about 2 hours on either side of noon. This ensures an even distribution of light as the sun comes directly from overhead at this time of day. If your home is in a basement, please reach out to ensure we can photograph your home in the best way possible.

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.

Everyone always wonders where their family, maternity or newborn session should take place. I'm here to guide you.

You've undoubtedly have heard of "golden hour". I explain in detail as to why light is everything and allows me to create the images I'm known for.
