Who We Are                                               

If you are looking for a photography studio based on price alone, our studio cannot compare. There are many photographers who are less expensive than us.

But, if you are looking for a studio that showcases your love and connection, want to be taken care of every step of the way, develop a relationship with us and actually see your beautiful images displayed in your home, then we are your studio.

We offer you guidance through the entire process, custom designed legacy wall galleries and albums, an experience tailored to you, and beautiful art that happens to be your family.

We are Portrait Artists and Legacy Wall Designers.



Linda Bell

Owner and Wearer of all hats

  I have been in the photography world for many years while working with families and children of all ages. I operated a home daycare for many years, home schooled my own children, have a degree in Early Childhood Education and Film Photography, a certificate from the New York Institute of Photography, and much experience in LIFE!

My main hope for you is to see the love and connection you share with others, and realize how valuable having a tangible art piece you can love in your home now and pass down to future generations is.

My work has been seen in the Yorkville Then and Now Publication, The Record Newspapers, the new Kendall County Magazine, Women of Distinction Magazine, and Neurofibromatosis Midwest.  I am a member of Professional Photographers of America and am currently studying to become a Certified Professional Photographer. Songs of Life Photography Studio was voted 2017 BEST PHOTOGRAPHER in the BEST OF THE FOX READERS CHOICE AWARDS and 2018 ONE OF THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS IN BEST OF THE FOX KENDALL COUNTY.

                 My passion for photography stemmed from my freshman year of high school at Aurora Central Catholic when I took a photography 1 class and my eyes were opened to this beautiful form of art. Since then, my passion has grown immensely and I have defined myself as an artist. I try to tell a story and provoke emotion in each of my photos. This being said, my favorite thing to photograph are people; to me, portraits effortlessly resemble feelings and a particular mood. I look forward to what the future brings!













If you are looking for an authentic, unique, artistic, lifestyle approach to your photography session with great value, then you have come to the right place.

Songs of Life serves the greater Chicago area and the mid west states.
