Bella Mia Portraits
(214) 407-2359

As a mother of a son with autism, I understand the joys and frustrations of capturing the perfect picture, or just capturing who your child is in general. There is nothing more stressful and frustrating than getting your entire family dressed for family pictures only to walk away empty handed. We get that it’s not easy; our passion is to work hard with patience and understanding so that doesn’t happen.  We guarantee all our sessions. If we don’t deliver the results you were looking for, we will re-shoot your portrait session so that you are 100% happy. We love and have such a heart for special needs children.  We will capture what makes your family unique and special. Desiree’ Chapman, Professional photographer & mom to Joshua who has Aspergers Syndrome.
