Belli Bambini Foto – Youth
Tnah Louise has been shooting photography for nearly eight years after a successful 26 years as a model, agent, stylist, advertising client, and producer. As a Los Angeleno native she decided to leave the business and retreat to Costa Rica giving birth to her first son on the beach (literally), she knew she was capable of anything and her life would never be the same and it was there that she discovered her love of photography.
Fast forward to present day… Happily married to her husband and business partner Mario Di Donato, she knew she could never return to the fast paced industry in the same way. As a mother of four beautiful sons ranging from 7- 17, she found her new passion, this time behind the camera. Primarily photographing little ones through young adults, her affection for children allows her the ability to connect and practice patience with her young subjects in a way most find challenging. Tnah really feels that children are an inspiration and her amazing experience and training through the years in the business has influenced her unique style. Her love of life, light, and color are displayed throughout her imagery. Tnah creates the concepts, does the styling, and photography herself and has named the division Belli Bambini which means beautiful children in Italian.

Bella Faccia Foto – Portraits
Moving to the City of Angels more then 25 years ago to pursue a succussful career as a model turned actor, Mario found himself taken by all the beauty surrounding him and decided to pick up his camera and play around. The playful hobby turned into a business after numerous friends started asking him to take their head shots. His ability to draw out honest moments from his subjects, even those that walk through the door saying they hate their pictures taken end up feeling like it was more of an education they received by the time they leave.
Tnah and Mario have discovered that together they have 26 years of experience from different angles. We have established great relationships with LW1, Coast To Coast, Abrahms, Nu Mondel, Ford Models, LA Models, Mavrick Artists. Our relationship with wonderful acting coaches listed on our blog roll gives us the opportunity to work with newbies and guide them with our experience and help with their quest for placement. Together Mario and Tnah work collaboratively on various projects. Our latest work, Naturally Fun Parties For Kids written by Conscious Parenting author Annie Daulter shows off their creative spirits.
