Hear what Bella's past students have to say:

"Bella is a masterful posing guide. I was able to witness her in action through several shoots, and no matter the scene, she has a way of communicating her vision to the subject that is experimental, yet clear. She puts herself into the pose by demo'ing it to her subject, making it easy to follow along and understood."
- Tina L.
"I love watching Bella interact with models; she has the ability to make them feel comfortable and confident, enabling them to portray different roles. It’s truly magical to see how she transforms regular people into fantasy characters. Bella takes a lot of self-portraits, so she knows the other side of the camera very well. I think that's one of the reasons why she is so good at posing other people."
- Irene R.
"I can't wait to learn more about posing people and would love for Bella to be the one teaching me and making me more confident that I can pose any person in front of my camera, making myself and my future clients really happy with the results."
- Peter R.
"Bella has an amazing talent for guiding her subjects into dynamic, evocative poses. Starting with the way she interacts with her subjects that puts them completely at ease, to the way she looks at every detail of the pose from the tips of the fingers to the tips of the toes. It is truly an art she has mastered."
