Though she be but little, she is fierce!

If you've been following my work closely the last few months, you may have noticed that my business has undergone some wonderful changes. Namely, providing you with a more insightful look into what to expect when you become my client, my features and products, and ultimately why Bella Priscilla stands out from all the rest. 

However, I wanted to take a moment and reach out to all the beautiful women out there who are still hesitating to get in touch for entirely different reasons. 


I am a 27 year-old Colombian-American spitfire. At 4' 11" and weighing 135 pounds, I'm far from being "the model type."

I understand the struggle that is self-acceptance in a world that is constantly trying to convince me, and a lot of women like me, that we're not quite beautiful. Even the political climate in America today is deliberately demeaning a great majority of us, across all body types and races, for reasons that continue to have no merit whatsoever. 

I made a commitment to myself to never give into that mentality. That's why I chose to specialize in women's intimate portraiture.  I make that version of the world less significant through the empowerment of women. Why? Because I am beautiful, and so are you. I have learned through my extensive training and working closely with an eclectic range of real women, that being "the model type" has nothing to do with my capabilities as a woman or as a professional photographer. Nor does it have anything to do with what you are capable of when we become a team. 


When you're getting married, you hire a professional wedding photographer. When you need family portraits made, you hire a family portrait and lifestyle photographer. 

When you're looking for intimate portraiture, you look for a professional portrait photographer who spends every waking moment innovating, learning, and creating portraits especially for women. That's what I do, that's all I do. I never outsource, and it's not an ad-on. This is an experience designed especially for you; to build you up and fully arm you with the power of your own unique beauty for the rest of your life. 

Don't let anyone or anything hold you back, not even for one more day. You are a force to be reckoned with. Come as you are and I'll take care of the rest. 

With warmest regards,
