Hi, I'm Belle!
I believe in family, and the amazing bond between its members. The kind of family that, no matter how crazy, makes you realize how blessed you truly are.
I believe in love, and all its forms. But most especially in the kind of love that makes you feel complete and peaceful because you know you can always rely on it.
I believe in capturing real moments. The kind of moments that show the genuine connection & raw emotions between family members.
I don’t just take pictures & deliver a gallery. Every time I hold my camera, I aim to capture and preserve your special moments so you can relive the joy & love you were feeling right at that moment in the years to come; especially the fleeting childhood moments, because they’re only little once.
Hey, I’m Belle! A senior, maternity, newborn, & family photographer in Northern VA who captures special moments for the mom who loves to document everything. Let me freeze yours!

“It’s not just hiring someone to hold a camera and snap a few pictures. Family photography is about carefully crafting and capturing the big precious moments, including the little ones, in the stage of life you are in right now, in a way that beautifully shows your true personalities & raw emotions while telling your story.”
“I felt so comfortable & had such a great time...”
I was so nervous about taking my senior photos, but Belle made it so easy and fun. I have never had such a personal and thoughtful photographer who made sure I was prepared and was always available to answer my questions. Belle truly goes above and beyond to meet all of her clients’ needs and clearly is very passionate about photography. The session was absolutely wonderful; I felt so comfortable and had such a great time. The photos turned out beautifully and I truly could not be happier. Belle is an incredible photographer. I cannot thank her enough for making my senior photo shoot go so smoothly!!

“She feels like a close friend by the day of the shoot...”
Her responsiveness and level of communication prior to our shoot was unparalleled to anyone else. She feels like a close friend by the day of the shoot.
In our home she was a calming force that we needed that day. We are new parents and the day could have been so chaotic with our baby on an unpredictable schedule at the time. Not only was Belle understanding of that, she was encouraging of us to slow down and take breaks. She kept the process equally moving along but with ease and nurturing that we all needed.
Her photos are beautiful!! We couldn’t be happier to have such an important milestone captured so perfectly - because you don’t get a redo! She even thought to make sure we included personal touches and she captured small details of the nursery. I was amazed!

“What stands out the most is Belle's personal touch...”
Our family had a wonderful experience with Belle. She is super friendly, attentive with communication, and pays close attention to details to make sure you get the pictures you want. We loved all the images we received. It was hard for us to choose our favorites! What stands out the most to us is Belle’s personal touch. She really does cater to your needs and makes you feel like you’re her only client when in reality she has many. Wonderful experience overall!

“She made me feel so beautiful...”
Loved working with Belle! Her client maternity dresses are absolutely GORGEOUS! She made me feel so beautiful in the midst of a season of feeling not so pretty (pregnancy). And the finished product are better than I could imagine!

“She made me feel like I'm hanging out with my close friend...”
Had a great time with Belle. She is so sweet and made me feel at ease. I love the photoshoot I had with her because she made me feel like I’m hanging out with my close friend. Belle is so amazing and guided me how to pose the whole time.
