Mount Vernon, Washington
I’m Dana, owner of Bella Vita Creative. I'm a self-proclaimed sentimentalist, and multi-award-winning photographer, passionate about capturing your memories. My goal as a creator is to bring a smile to your face and a (happy) tear to your eye every time you view your images - whether they're proudly hung on the walls of your home, displayed in heirloom albums ready to be passed down to future generations, or printed to be shared with family members near and far. It is my great joy to uncover that spark of beauty within each and every one of my clients. Capturing you and your loved ones at your best is just the start. The final image presentation will serve as your daily reminder that yes, you are loved. You are incredible. You have worth and beauty. I've always loved keeping family memories through photography. In fact, my stairwell walls (and every other space I can find), are lined with family photos and tributes to my beloved pets—they’re the “jewelry" of my home. I’m inspired by nature, Rembrandt, and romantic and classical poetry. I love emotional and imaginative art, the capacity for wonder, the freshness and innocence of childhood, and the beauty of womanhood and families. I guess you could call me a sentimentalist. And I've been lucky enough to have been mentored by some of the top photographers in the world, and have won awards that I am very proud of. I regularly preserve beautiful images of my family, knowing that time is precious. And I’m passionate about helping clients preserve their own memories as well. Each photo is a keepsake you can revisit as often as you want — a timeless celebration of your life, love, and family. It would be an honor to capture your memories.
