A little about me ...

My first camera was an impromptu gift from my dad, a Kodak Brownie Vecta he undoubtedly rescued from thoughtless discard. I was 5 years old. Now, I am married to the love of my life and surrounded by a beautiful blended and growing family. After 30+ years as a healthcare executive, I retired to foster my inner artist and pursue commercial photography. Blending my experience as a deeply passionate leader with formal training at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, I now dedicate my time to portrait, commercial, branding, and documentary photography. Primarily a people photographer, I seek to create strong visual narratives and illustrative images. With a bent toward editorial and documentary style photography, I adore producing both individual images and photo series. Fine art photography is a personal creative outlet, and I weave this interest into my professional work when possible.

Heidi Marie Bell Photography serves the greater Baltimore region and provides studio and location-based photography. A collaborator at heart, clients interested in taking part in both the planning and the natural evolution of their projects will find a welcome and comfortable home with my services. As a former executive, I understand the demands of running a business, and relate to the importance conveying your distinctive story effectively and authentically.

Let's get in touch.
