About Us

The smell of a new baby...

The way you feel when your three-year-old hugs you with all her might...

The way your heart bursts with pride when you think of your family...

The way your heart aches when you imagine life without them...

bella vita photography creates award-winning images that invoke all of the emotions that come from living a life well-loved. We specialize in every phase of your child's life, from maternity and newborn, through high school senior. We want to be there to capture every age and stage as your family grows and evolves.

We also understand what it is like to be the mom that is always behind the camera, charged with the duty of recording her family's history. If something happened to you today, would your children have any images to help them remember how much you loved and cherished them? Moms: EXIST IN PHOTOGRAPHS!! Do not wait until you have lost 10 pounds, retouched your roots, or found the time. Life will not wait, and your family loves you just as you are at this moment. To your children, you are the most beautiful woman in the world. We know how to pose and light you to make you look and feel your absolute best.

Let us work with you to design beautiful art pieces for your walls, that happen to be of your children and family. Is there anything more important that you could display in your home?
