“I've known Dana for the better part of 10 years. Her work is outstanding, she has great attention to detail and communication skills to match. Dana is a delight to work with; she's bright, creative and more than helpful. I highly recommend her. She has a way of motivating audiences and capturing the essence of a memory through words, images and sounds. Plus, she's just a nice person.”

“I am a really picky person when it comes to pictures, and Dana seriously blew me away with the photos she took during our photo shoot! She was so nice during the photo shoot and had so many good ideas, and thank goodness because I had no ideas what so ever! Dana has a great eye for detail and is just an all around super sweet person!"
“Dana's eye, her post processing, her thorough attention to detail, all play a big role in what makes Bella Vita Creative very, very special. I've hired her for family portraits, as well as two of my children's weddings. So happy, no, thrilled really with her work!"
“Dana did a beautiful job taking photos for my family and professional head shots for my brother and I. She was easy to work with and listened carefully to what we wanted. Dana made it easy for my family to take pictures that truly represented us and she had great ideas that we all loved. We went into the shoot hoping for a few great photos and came out with so much more. We love each one. Thank you, Dana!"Christy Bahr
“Dana does her homework, is easy to work with, and takes amazing photographs! Very happy with her work."
“Dana listened to me when I talked about my kids at the pre-shoot meeting. The result was that she recorded and preserved memories of my kids that touched my heart...made me tear up and smile at the same time. She showed them as I see them and made it into art. It was exactly what I wanted. Her love for her work is obvious, as is her giftedness with the camera. Dana is professional in every way, reliable, and gives great attention to detail. Even the packaging of the finished product was beautiful and thoughtful. My kids (teenagers) and I all enjoyed meeting Dana, and my son even ended up enjoying having his picture taken! I am so glad I found you, Dana! Thank you for everything."
“Dana did the event day shoot for the Skagit River Salmon Festival in 2012. Her images turned out great and have been incredibly helpful in marketing the coming event this September. We highly recommend her work."

“Dana did an amazing job with our family photos. She suggested the perfect setting too! Our entire shoot took one hour, which was important to our five wiggly children. Dana was very organized easy to work with. We were able to have several poses taken and not feel rushed. I could not be more pleased with the finished photos. They are a beautiful treasure!"
“I'm in love with the pictures, they turned out great! I'm having a hard time narrowing down the ones I want. Thank you, Bella Vita Creative, for the wonderful family pictures!"
“Dana, thank you so much for the beautiful job you did on my son's wedding slideshow. You captured the feelings of the day so perfectly. This is a special keepsake I will treasure always."
“Dana, words cannot describe how amazing and beautiful the slideshow is! Thanks for the cry this morning! I'm so excited to present this to my daughter for her graduation . . . I'm beside myself! Can I just say that I loved working with you on this project. I love the slideshow and the presentation of your materials. To others considering Bella Vita Creative: Dana just created the most amazing, one-of-a-kind, memorable video to commemorate my daughter's graduation from high school. Dana works efficiently, thoughtfully and with passion. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better gift to present to our daughter."
“I have experienced Dana's work and find it outstanding. She is easy to work with and really is talented. Dana can do a lot of different creative projects. I like her use of style, color and making it all fit together into a final project that fits the need."
“Dana took amazing engagement photos of me and my (now) husband. She also made a beautiful slideshow for our wedding. The pictures are gorgeous and the slideshow was so emotionally gripping, everyone at our wedding loved it. They've been talking about it for weeks!"
“Dana took our daughters three month photos and we love them! She stayed for a few hours until she thought she had enough pictures to work with. She was even patient while I fed my daughter during the shoot. We were especially impressed by the packaging of the pictures. She really pays attention to the details and we have already asked her to take our daughters six month photos. Thanks again, Dana!"
“Dana was wonderful to work with. She did an amazing job on my senior pictures and was extremely easy to talk to! It was nice being able to meet up with her before the session at some place comfortable such as Starbucks. I'd recommend her to anybody. Her photography is spectacular."
“Professional at its finest . . . thanks for everything; it was a wonderful experience. You are truly gifted. "
