Hey there! I'm Belle!
I am based in Gainesville, VA; and I help college & high school seniors celebrate their awesome achievement in Northern VA, including Fairfax, Manassas, Centreville, Reston, Herndon, Sterling, Ashburn, Leesburg, Alexandria, Arlington, & more.
Because you’ve come a long way & this once in a lifetime moment deserves to be celebrated
This is it!!! This is THE YEAR you've been waiting for your entire life in school!!! Everything you've worked hard for since Kindergarten has prepared you for what's next in life. The life lessons, the friendships & relationships, the memories, the big decisions, and so much more!!!
Senior year is so exciting! It's about being on the cusp of something great which is your future. You have the whole world in your hands & the possibilities are just limitless. Can it be more exciting than that?! I am sure your parents are beaming with pride because of everything you've accomplished!
This special time in your life only happens once in a lifetime. And it deserves to be celebrated & documented the best way I know how.
Yes, you read that right! The focus of the photoshoot is YOU and who you are! Like to have fun? I will make sure I capture that. If you are more on the serious side, no problem at all! I will make sure your photos show that as well!
Is there a place that means so much to you right now? Then let's make it one of the locations for your session! Love spending time with your bestie? Let's invite your BFF to be part of your senior photos! My ultimate goal is to deliver photos that will document who you are at this time in your life; which is why each senior experience is completely customized to your preference.
PLUS, there will be no heavily edited photos, no unnaturally-whitened teeth, nor overly-smoothed skin in your photos. Only photos that will reflect the authentic, natural, and beautiful you!!!
There will be no awkward poses during your senior photos. You will feel comfortable & confident during your senior session because I will be guiding & posing you throughout the entire process! You do not need to worry about anything at all, except to be you & have fun!
Trust me, you don’t need a prior photo shoot or modeling experience at all!!!! The result? Only senior photos that are joyful, timeless, and true to you!
I have associate photographers who do Senior Sessions on my behalf when I am booked or unavailable. It's also a great way to get the TBP Experience on a smaller budget.
My associate photographers were trained directly by me on location scouting, lighting, shooting techniques, posing workflows, & client interaction. They also completed assignments and were provided feedback all throughout the training period. The associate photographers were carefully chosen by me based on their positive and upbeat personalities, but most importantly the same passion for loving & serving clients as I do. Therefore, if you book with a TBP associate, you can be rest assured that you are going to get the same quality of photos & client experience that TBP has been known for.
COMING SOON: There is currently 1 more associate photographer in training and she will be taking on paid clients as soon as she's ready.

Senior photography sessions in Northern Virginia
These senior photos were taken on a cloudy & windy fall afternoon at an outdoor mall in Reston, Virginia. The senior had 3 outfit changes which are perfect for the 3 locations we were planning to do. We started at the area where the stores are, then moved to the parking garage. And then, we ended the senior pictures at a nearby park with a lake before sunset. This beautiful girl rocked her senior photos. She rocked each pose I had thrown her way. This senior session is the reason why I am now an internationally published senior photographer.
These senior pictures, for 2 best friends in high school, were taken on a sunny spring evening before sunset in Ashburn, Virginia. We did photos of them together, and individually; with and without their graduation cap & gown. We've been following each other on Instagram for a while so it was like hanging out with friends. We chatted and laughed A LOT. The girls chose these white dresses for their senior photos which perfectly complemented the location. Their dresses & location are perfect combination for my signature light and airy look.
These senior photos were taken on a very cloudy day at a local high school in Nokesville, Virginia; which made the photos super special because this is where this beautiful girl spent the past 4 years making memories & building relationships with her friends. And let's not forget all the hard work that she did which led her to this point. She made my job so much easier. She did all the instructions I have given her with ease and made everything looked effortlessly & naturally beautiful.
These senior pictures were taken for a college law school graduate at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC a couple of weeks after the Cherry Blossoms had peaked. We started the session at the Lincoln Memorial and walked towards the reflecting pool and closer to the Washington Monument as the session progressed. There is just something different about the glow in these senior photos taken during sunrise, and these made waking up super early super worth it.

“She has a magical way of capturing their true personalities...”
Belle is a wonderful photographer to work with. She is so energetic, engaging, and a lot of fun! My daughter and her best friend absolutely had the time of their lives doing their BFF/graduation photo shoot and the pictures turned out amazing! She has a magical way of capturing their true personalities and smiles. Photo shoots should be fun, and Belle nailed it!
Manassas, Virginia Senior Session
“She formed a bond with my daughter...”
I couldn't be more pleased with Belle. She answered all the questions I had. Then she instantly formed a bond with my daughter through texting and email. They were communicating back and forth about ideas and making sure Belle was understanding her wants and vision of her senior session. Making sure my daughter was comfortable was absolutely key and without Belle's amazing insight and passion for fantastic images that would not have happened. Because she went above and beyond I know I have images that I will be able to reflect on for a lifetime. The saying of a picture is worth a thousand words is so true, Belle I can't thank you enough for the images you captured. This was an amazing experience!
Warrenton, Virginia Senior Session
“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.
Washington, DC Senior Session
“The photo shoot was really fun...”
Belle was fantastic to work with. The business side of it before the photo shoot was so easy and she connected with my daughter directly about what to expect. The photo shoot itself was really fun. We loved our photos and it was really hard to pick favorites. A great senior portrait photo experience.
Chantilly, Virginia Senior Session
“Everything is very natural & relaxed; it's never awkward...”
Belle is the perfect photographer. Before the shoot, she asks for your vision and how you want your pictures to turn out. During the shoot, everything is very natural and relaxed; it’s never awkward. My pictures came out wonderfully and she even delivered them early.
