"Meeting people in a genuine way and feeling like there is a vital and meaningful connection going on makes me come alive."

Here is My STORY.


In 2020 with a third baby on the way, during a global pandemic, while juggling an online-schooled kindergartener and a daring gymnast 3 year old, I thought it was the perfect time to finally open my photography business. You see, I have a photojournalism degree (Boston University '08), and I'm a former pro sports photographer, so I'd been thinking about this endeavor for a long time.


So, what possessed me to finally take the plunge?


Well, Life Happened.

After a series of unfortunate events (which I'm now grateful for), with the support from an awesome mentor + amazing family, combined with a new-found self-confidence, I decided it was time to make this life changing and fulfilling decision.

Thus, Megan LaBella Photography was born.


Here is My Why.


After my time at the Boston Red Sox I coached college track & field and taught high school physical education and health. I absolutely loved coaching and teaching, empowering and connecting with my students and colleagues. With my last baby on the way, I took a hiatus from my highly rewarding careers. As a super social creature, I quickly started missing interacting and connecting with people! I put a lot of thought into why it was time for Megan LaBella Photography to come to life: I wanted to connect, I wanted to create, I wanted to empower, and ultimately, I wanted to bring joy to others.


Now as your photographer, I am able to connect, empower, and bring joy by creating beautiful photographic art for you. What could be better?

The Experience


You and your family are my priority.

Because of this, I have limited availability each month, so I can spend my time and focus on you!

Your time is valuable.



When working with me you can expect a personalized, relaxed, fun, & comfortable photography experience.


I want to build a connection with you, your partner & your family! It is my favorite part of this job!

Luckily my superpower, according to my husband, is that I can make friends with a rock!

So, you can relax and we can be friends!
