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 photography as a profession.  Blending my experience as a deeply passionate leader and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Commercial Photography from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, I now dedicate my time to headshot, portrait, commercial, and branding photography.  A collaborator at heart, clients interested in participating 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 of conveying your unique story effectively and authentically.

I am primarily a people photographer with a natural bent toward editorial and documentary style photography and creating strong visual narratives.  Fine art photography is a personal creative outlet, and I weave this interest into my professional work when possible.

My studio, Heidi Marie Bell Photography, serves the greater Baltimore region and provides both studio and location-based photography services. 

Let's get in touch.
