Bella Bear | Boston Baby & Family Photographer

Ohhh, Bella. She’s freaking adorable, especially when she stares at “Lamby” like they’re the bestestttt of buds. I SWEAR though, there’s something in the universe that doesn’t want me to photograph her. First there was her newborn session. She was about a week and a half old, and while that’s normally the perfect age, she didn’t really want to play the newborn photo game ;). Thennnnn for her recent “sitting up” session, there was terrible traffic on the way to the park. By the time Bella and fam arrived, we had about 20 minutes of daylight left. BUT, you’d never really know that we were fighting daylight from looking at the gallery because she was SO well-behaved and happy-go-lucky that I managed to snag tons of photos in the short time we had. I have high hopes that her first birthday session will break this photo trend and we will have all the time and amazing light in the world!

Enjoy 🙂

Thinking about a spring session? Here’s the deal: I have the evenings of April 23rd and 24th open for full sessions (no minis). I have numerous April weeknights also available for full sessions (weeknights come with a $50 discount :)). My May schedule is up in the air as I have a few things going on outside of my biz and I am not sure which weekend(s) I will have available. I also have three families already on my waiting list for one of the few spots I will have. However, I can definitely book May weekNIGHTS at this time, so get in touch soon if you’re considering spring photos!


Oh hey! I’m Melissa, a Boston family & newborn photographer, but I like to refer to myself as a toddler-whispering, child-taming, photographic ninja.
