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!

June 2009 Photographer Contest

Every month we host a photo contest for our photographers. We are constantly blown away by the talent of our photographers. It’s soooo difficult to pick a winner. The winner will be posted on our blog at the first of each month. First place winners receive a $75.00 gift certificate to the store/spa/restaurant of their choice. Second place will receive a $50 gift certificate.

There are two divisions of the contest– Bella Life and Bella Baby. Bella Baby is the new face of hospital baby portraiture. We bring experienced free-lance photographers into the hospitals to capture your baby’s first photograph with a natural, artistic style. Bella Life helps you remember the “real” moments of your life.  Bella Life begins where Bella Baby Photography ends.  We document first steps, first times with no training wheels and last hugs before they leave home.


First place for June’s Bella Life contest goes to Pam Schofield of Michigan! Who says family only consists of humans? Man’s best friend is always proud to welcome the new addition.


Your little angel comes into this world so tiny. Anyone would be happy to look back at these photos on the first day of college… just a reminder on how fast time goes by. Chicago’s Kristen Shaw took this photo of baby’s first day. She is awarded first place in the Bella Baby Photographer’s Contest.


Second place winner, Julie Melka (Chicago), exhibits beautiful light in this photo. This shot captures such innocence as daddy gently holds his precious gift.


Talk about a ham for the camera! This grin says “full belly and dry diaper”. Sue Partynksi (Chicago) receives an honorable mention for June’s Photographer’s Contest.
