Hi! I'm Tamara DeMello owner of Bella Photography & Design. Ever since I got my first job in a photography studio, when I was only 18, I knew that I photography would be my profession for life and it has been for the past 25 plus years! What I love most about being a photographer is being able to capture moments that might otherwise be lost in time. I've had the honor of studying with some amazing professionals and I am always learning new elements of my craft. Photography has changed so much over the years, I feel like the creative elements are endless!
I opened my first studio in 1991 in Southern California and by the time I sold it to move up to Santa Rosa, we were photographing up to 2000 seniors and 60 weddings a year! I knew I wanted more artistry in my work and Sonoma County, with it's breathtaking beauty, was the perfect place to relocate. I opened Bella Photography & Design in 2009 with the idea of becoming the "personal photographer" for my clients. In every session I do I am driven to create the best photograph you've ever had taken!
