I’m Belle

Hey! I am Belle! I am a mom of 3 adorable kids, a full-time IT professional, and the woman behind TuBelle Photography! I am a senior & family photographer in Northern Virginia. I am based in Gainesville, VA and serve the surrounding areas including (but not limited to) Fairfax, Manassas, Centreville, Reston, Herndon, Sterling, Ashburn, Leesburg, Alexandria, and Arlington.

I love documenting everything with my own family, from the minute details like how we had a dance party one night while I was making dinner, or how we decided to have afternoon snacks at the park just for the fun of it, to the big moments like my kid’s first birthday or us buying our own house for the first time.

I believe that moments with family, no matter how little or big, needs to be celebrated and documented because these pictures are everything! These pictures will remind us of all the fun things we’ve had together. When the kids have all grown up and living their own lives, these pictures that we are about to take will remind you how precious these moments are… in our lifetime, and in theirs.

I am not just here to take pictures & deliver a gallery. I am here to capture and preserve your special moments so you can relive the joy & love you were feeling right at that moment in the years to come.

“When we have each other, we have everything.”

I was born and raised in the tropical country of Manila, Philippines. I migrated to the United States over 9 years ago, left everything I knew and loved, to be with my then-fiance, the answer to my prayers, for good. Shortly after, we got married.

In Fairfax County, Virginia, we started our family. We have a daughter and a son. And soon, we’ll have a third blessing added to our family! We’ve recently moved to Gainesville, Virginia when we bought our first home. And we couldn’t be any happier!
Fun fact: I was raised to eat rice ALL DAY EVERY DAY. And yes, even on breakfast and snack!

I could not be more excited about these photos Belle captured of my 3 kids. She nailed each of their personalities perfectly and her patience was amazing.


“Because photos are more than just pictures. They are memories of the special moments you spent with your family… frozen for you & the future generations to look back on FOREVER.”


The Heart Behind The Photos


A cry. That’s the first thing that I remember when my daughter was born. One afternoon in July, after being in labor for 5 hours. I FINALLY got to hold her after 9 months!!! I sat there on my hospital bed in complete awe of what I was looking at. I couldn’t believe it was really her; It feels so surreal that I was FINALLY holding her in my arms. She was so tiny but beautiful and perfect in every way. And she’s mine!!! Since then, I promised myself that I will make sure to document every moment I have with her because I want to remember every single detail of her & our future kids’ lives.

So I did! Some days, it’s eating strawberries for her afternoon snack just because she looks so adorable doing so or a picture of my son trying to solve a puzzle. Other days, it’s an eventful trip to the beach. But there are those days that you have to because it is a once in a lifetime moment just like her first day in Kindergarten.

For the past years, when I’m having a bad day and I see pictures I took of my family, whether it’s from an ordinary day or of a special milestone, I remember all the fun things that we had, and all the overflowing love that we have for each other. The pictures, along with the memories that come with them, give me the strength to push through what I’m going through because they help me realize how blessed I truly am.

And that is what I want to give you and your family! My hope is that if there is only one feeling or emotion that you get to feel while looking at the pictures I had delivered is that you’ll be reminded how good life was back then & that you’ll realize how blessed you truly are because of the people that you have in your life right at that moment.


Do you feel like, as moms, we prioritize the same things? Do you think we’re going to get along and have so much fun during your portrait session? Maybe you have some questions for me. Reach out and you’ll hear back from me within the next 24 hours!
