established in 2013
Bella Arte Photography was established in 2013 in Geelong, Victoria.
Although my name is Emma-Jane most people call me Em. I know I talk too much, cannot sing in tune and I'm half Italian so I think that about covers my whole personality. Passionate, outgoing and I try.
Bella Arte is Italian, simply meaning beautiful art. Over the years although my style and business has grown, changed and developed, the one thing that remains the same is my desire to create beautiful art for you, your family and your walls.
Lifestyle photography is absolutely my thing. Newborns are my thing. Mothers and their families are my thing. Truth be told I would love to have been a midwife so I'm totally in my comfort zone photographing you and your babes.
Please be warned I've been known to jump on the bed, steal newborn cuddles and hang out with the toddlers during my sessions. My family think I'm overly friendly and get embarrassed when I talk to strangers and their babies in the lift at the shopping centre or play the music too loud in the car. But hey, that's ME and I'm ok with that.
I am married to a mad Hawks supporter and we have 3 daughters who could not be more different from each other. My plan was always to have 3 children but for some reason I had my heart set on boys, or if I had to have a girl, just one would be ok. I even said to a friend one day, that it would be my worst nightmare to have 3 girls. Obviously you should never say things like that out loud...
The amazing thing is, now that I have 3 girls - I wouldn't dream of changing it.
I love it! Every. Single. Minute. Even all the hair.
I cannot wait to meet you!
