mellBella Fun Fact

mellBella is constantly evolving and working to become better artists, photographers, and community members. We started in 2010 by doing a few boudoir sessions under our brother company, Richard Bell Photography.  We decided to form our own feminine brand and launched  mellBella Photography in January 2011. Since then we’ve moved locations, added space & sets, photographed hundreds of women,  partnered and supported local businesses and non profits, and so much more. This year, we even drastically changed our hair from the above photo… Wanda cut it all off  and went super short and funky. But Mell Bell changed from blue to purply pink or “aggressive fuchsia.”

Even though some things change, our goal is still the same. To coach and cheer on our clients on a journey from from self conscious to confident, from embarrassed to empowered. To create art specifically for the eyes of only a few people. To fight pornography with images that celebrate and honor the subject.

One Image Wednesday- Color Coordination

We love to match the bed to your boudoir look! This Bella brought her teal wedding shoes and wore this gorgeous light pink bodysuit. Combine these colors and match for her hair, eyes, and skin, and wow! This photo was taken with our above-the-bed camera to show how everything came together. It’s all about coordinating the colors to take your boudoir photos to the next level… something that just plain white sheets can’t do.
