JBella Photography by Kim Messina
Thank you for stopping by!
Hi! My name is Kim Messina. I am a Long Island, New York based photographer who strives to create timeless images capturing personality, soul and beauty along with a touch of art. Using natural light and the beauty of the world around us, my goal when taking pictures is to show who you are. Without overdone posing or props, my images are timeless and the focus is on you/your family. I am a true believer in natural and organic beauty. I love being able to share my images with clients and give them a gift that will last a lifetime.
The name JBella comes from my two cuties. Isabella and Jacob. J is for Jacob and Bella is for Isabella. They are a large part of my business and inspiration for continued growth.
I first started out in photography back in high school as a hobby and then it developed into a love. I got my first DSLR camera when my son was born and finally decided to turn it into a profession years later. My background started out in dance and fine art, then took a turn to the medical profession, and now yoga, my family and all things creative consume my days. I'm constantly looking for inspiration for creative ideas and photos.
I love being able to capture moments in time, little smiles, life stages and love between people and families. Pictures help us remember who we were, what we looked like, what we felt and what we remember. They are cherished little bits of the past than can be passed down for generations.
My sessions are unique to each client and I'm happy to offer assistance along the way to figure out your best look, ideas and location. I'll guide you every step of the way.
I thank you for your interest and look forward to hearing from you.
