About Elle


I want to personally welcome you to Ella Bella Photography! My name is Elle and I have been professionally photographing newborns for over 13 years in San Antonio! Every baby is so special to me. I am absolutely passionate about newborn photography and all the little details that make my photographs perfectly sweet!

A little about me… I love Jesus and all things Disney! I have two of the sweetest boys, who are the light of my life! They were born a year apart, so they definitely keep me on my toes! I love crafting, traveling and eating out! Photography has always been my creative outlet and I absolutely feel blessed to have been a part of so many families’ lives in  San Antonio (& Austin) over the last 13+ years!

I book a limited number of newborn sessions each month, so please contact me for availability around your due date! The best time to reserve a newborn session is during your 2nd or 3rd trimester, but if your baby is already here, please contact me to see if I have any openings coming up!

If you are interested in more information about my maternity, newborn or baby sessions,  please email me at elle @ (take out the spaces) Thank you and I look forward to working with you soon!



Elle Mendenhall,
Photographer & Owner of Ella Bella Photography

LOVE your pics… I have been reading your blog since before you got pregnant with Hunter. I was also TTC and waiting for my miracle. I gave birth to my Little Princess on Nov 2007 after 2 years TTC, it was a real miracle from God and she is my testimony. I was inspired by your perseverance and have followed your blogs since then. Good luck with your new adventure! You take very good pics, so it will be a success!

Hi Elle,

I am due with my first baby June 15, 2013. I was wondering if you have any availability for a newborn session around that time. Can you tell me more about pricing and what is included? Do baby sessions take place at your studio or somewhere else? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
