What are your products and prices?
Bella Life has a variety of options and products. We offer CDs, traditional prints, totes, birth announcements and more. We have something to fit every need and budget; sessions start at $125 and prints begin at $45.
Do you have any promotions or packages?
One of Bella Life’s most popular options is our Milestone Package. The Milestone Package features four sessions at a discounted rate in your home or at a local park that can be used within two years of purchase. Generally people with young children purchase this package, for that is when you see the most noticeable changes in the photos; the most common timing is for 3/6/9/12 months.
Bella Life also offers semi-annual “Pictures in the Park” events - condensed sessions at local parks that allow clients a quicker alternative to a traditional shoot. These sessions are very popular and fill up fast—so be sure to act quickly when dates are announced.
How do I prepare for my session?
You do not need to make any special arrangements to your home for your photo shoot. Our photographers are experienced in capturing the best setting and can find suitable areas to photograph in every home.
Newborn sessions should be scheduled within the first two weeks of life to truly capture that special time. Contact us before you are going to deliver so we are able to have a photographer ‘on-call’ and waiting for your bundle of joy to arrive. A content baby makes for the most beautiful photos so try to have your baby fed and changed. Life happens, so we certainly understand if we need to take a break for a feeding or changing! The same principles apply to older kids (and adults!); well fed and rested is always best.
We welcome any props you may have that add to the photo and help express your child’s personality. We want the real individual to shine through. Please discuss any specific thoughts and ideas with us before your session; we welcome your input!
What should we wear?
Dress up or dress down. You should wear whatever represents you. We recommend staying away from clothing with text, characters or images. Jewelry/accessories are fine as long as they aren’t distracting. For a group photo try to coordinate your clothes, but not necessarily match.
How long is a session? Sessions can be booked for as short as 30 minutes or several hours (if doing a party or event). Each session is unique and we will work with you to ensure the appropriate amount of time is allocated.
