Well, hello there! Thanks for stopping by our blog. We hope that you will make yourself at home, ask questions, comment on things you see, and get to know us a little bit. On our blog, you will discover who we are, as photographers and as family.

Bellini Studio is primarily a husband and wife team of Destiny + Dennis. We also frequently have others with us assisting, second/third shooting and otherwise being all around awesome. Islands are beautiful, but can be a bit lonely, so we believe in bringing someone along! Destiny and Dennis are the ones who mainly contribute to our blog and who you will see at your consultation, session, event or wedding. We are the ones answering your emails and phone calls. Even though being professional is really important to us, we really like to call our clients friends, so we hope you are okay with that!

In case you are wondering about our history, Bellini Studio began in 2007 in Southern California, initially as a newborn and children's studio. Now located in the Dallas area, the studio readily serves Southern California, Colorado, North Texas and the Pacific Northwest area with wedding and all-things family related photography. We are avid travelers and happily consider any US and International inquiries. Don't be shy!

If there is something you would like to know, or if you just want to say hello, we would love to hear from you.

Ben's Glimpse | Senior 2013 | Plano Senior Photographer

Hey there!  I'd like you to meet Ben.

Ben is full of promise and talent.  He is headed off to be a Jayhawk at the University of Kansas (KU) in August, with the plan to major in Architecture.  I am pretty confident we will see great things with Ben's name on them over the years.  He is just that kind of guy.

Congratulations, Ben!!  Rock Chalk Jayhawk! :-)

Ronan 8 months | Milestone | McKinney Children's Photograper

You may remember this cutie from his 4 month session in this blog post.  Ronan is pretty amazing.  He has the most fantastic blue eyes and lights up the room when he smiles. &nbsp

He was trying to master crawling during this session, and he was surprisingly fast!  His mama and daddy are pretty big soccer fans, so I kind of think that once his little feet get a taste of freedom...he will be on the move full time.

Ronan's mama always brings out great clothing choices, including fantastic hats.  (You won't see him in any hats in this session though, because no sooner did we get them on his head, he pulled them right back off again!  But if you can imagine a brightly colored tie-dye hat with this lime green onesie...)

Truth be told, this black and white onesie may have been my favorite.   You can't see the front in these shots, but it says, "Johnny Cash | Folsom Prison."  A couple of summers ago, my mom, sis, 2 year-old daughter and I rode the Amtrak train out to Sacramento.  While we were there, we visited Folsom Prison and their little museum.  Interesting place!  

But this sweet face in that onesie?  I can just imagine him singing, "I hear the train a comin'..." :-)

One request that Kara made prior to this 8 month session was to have a few shots with Ronan's grandparents.  I love when grandparents want to be in pictures with their grandchildren!  Nothing really compares to seeing them interact, love and laugh together.

I have heard a little talk that this darling guy may come see us for his 1st birthday pictures and maybe a little cake smash.  I seriously can hardly wait to see him again!

Seed of Greatness | Bluebonnet Mini | North Texas Children's Photographer

Hello there and happy Wednesday!

You know, I grew up in a family who pretty much threw a party at the sighting of the first Texas wildflowers of Spring.  Alright, maybe not a party, but we definitely had our fair share of loading up to take a drive to see the wild flowers.  Though, of all the colors that paint the Texas highways, there is nothing quite like the bluebonnet and the sea of blue that is created when you find an entire field of them.

Near where we live, we frequently pass a little brown hill on our daily drive. Sometimes we talk about how "the hill" looks so incredibly different when the bluebonnets are not there. 

And then, one day in early Spring, without notice and without fail, they begin to sprout. First as little puffs of green, and then these little blue flowers return.  Year after year, they make their grand appearance. Their seeds remain. 

For as long as I can remember, they have been there. Most see them as a symbol of Texas, but to me they are much more.  They are a symbol of hope and a symbol of promise.  That simple little brown hill, now covered in blue, reminds me that even when no one else sees it, there is a mighty seed of greatness inside.
