A little about us...

Bella Baby is the face of hospital newborn portraiture.

We bring our experienced and professional photographers into hospitals around the country to capture your baby's first moments with a natural, artistic style.

Our photographs encompass a wide variety of safe and creative poses that can include siblings and parents while creating a beautiful experience for the whole family to remember.

Bella Baby photographers capture this beauty by using props like special wraps, hats or other items families bring from home, natural window light, along with professional-grade digital cameras.


However, newborns aren't the only subject we love to photograph.

Using a photojournalistic/magazine-style approach to photography, our photographers can come to your home

(or an approved setting of your choice) to capture your family’s milestones, special events or simply to freeze a wonderful moment in time.

Please visit our Bella Life page for additional information, and view our sample gallery for inspiration!
