— What people are saying about working with me




 A true gift.”

"Belén has a true gift for capturing beautiful moments in every day and life-changing moments. She captured my first maternity photos amazingly in an outdoor setting and gave me the precious gift of my son's newborn and 1 year/holiday photos indoors using all natural lighting. She comfortably caught some raw, but amazing moments of new motherhood that i will treasure forever!"

“She's always aware of the light...”

I've been in front of Belén's camera many times over the years and have had the great pleasure of watching her grow into her art. No matter where we are or what we're doing, she's always aware of the light and can see the series of shots that will tell our story most fluidly. She has a natural intuition that allows her to illuminate both the obvious and subtle beauty in every subject. If you want pictures that go beyond cookie-cutter, she's your woman!

Her compassion and integrity is genuine .”

Some people learn how to use a camera and take great pictures, and others are born with a natural talent that is effortless. Belén is the latter. I truly believe she sees and captures the souls of the people she's working with and that is something that is innate. Her gift is beautiful and I am SO very happy with the memories she captured of my family. I also have the incredible privilege of being able to call her a friend. Her compassion and integrity is genuine and she brings light to those in her presence. Friend/Client for life!

"Belén has an incredible eye."

"Belen has an incredible eye for what makes people sparkle and come alive. She always knows which light is best and for what purpose. She is a true artist, but also incredibly personal and personable. When you're on the other end of Belen's camera, you feel comfortable and can't help but have fun, no matter if you're a crabby toddler, a tired mama, or a busy family. I would highly recommend Belen and Belu Photography!"

"Belen is able to capture the most incredible images that fit perfectly with my vision.

One thing I really like about working with Belen is that she asks great questions and really listens to the answers. She is an absolute joy to work with and we collaborate well. I always look forward to our sessions together! Her brand and strategic marketing background along with her photography skills are invaluable in helping me tell my story."
