Here’s a Little About Who We Are…
You will often find me with a cup of coffee in my hand, wearing a band t-shirt and quoting Star Wars and the Goonies. I have two teenage boys that are the center of my universe. My youngest is very active in theater, so I have been known to bust out showtunes because of him. My oldest is very active in Boy Scouts and Venturing. I was lucky enough to marry, Scott, a web developer who helps me run the technology and marketing side of Bellemore.
I love to hike and be outdoors. I love fall and pumpkins and everything pumpkin flavored. I blame my love of pumpkin on the fact that I was born on Halloween, though, not just because it’s popular. I love going into New York to see a show or to try a new restaurant. I try to stay away from chains and support local places but you will never see me turn down Chipotle. I live by the Golden Rule- treat others as you would want to be treated. I believe that anything worth doing is worth doing well and I put 110% effort into everything I do. I believe in giving back to your community and lifting up others so that we can all be successful. Most importantly though- I love to laugh and have fun!
Web Developer, Marketing
Scott is not only my husband but my business partner and right hand man. He works full time as a Web Developer, specializing in Sitecore. He is a three time Sitecore MVP as well as my personal MVP. He is also pretty good with a camera and assists me from time to time on shoots and especially at concerts, where he serves as my bodyguard when I have to shoot from the crowd.
I tease him that his musical choices haven’t evolved past the 90’s alternative music we listened to in college, but he does like Vulfpeck and recognizes certain modern music. Some may consider him a craft beer conniseur, as he loves to travel around to different breweries tasting their different brews. His favorite is darker beers but he will try pretty much anything. He hasn’t met an Evil Twin or Spellbound beer he hasn’t liked. He also loves coffee, but not nearly as much as I do. His choice is Dunkin over Starbucks and he dislikes my favorite- Pumpkin Spice Lattes. He loves to travel and one day when we retire, we hope to get an RV and just drive all over the U.S. seeing the sites. What makes me love him the most though is that he loves to laugh and have as much fun as I do!
The Origin of the Name “Bellemore”
I am often asked where I got the name Bellemore Photography from, since my last name is Freeman. My grandmother, Patricia, always supported my ideas. Whether it was selling my crayon drawings on her front stoop, going to college, or training for a 5k, she always believed in me. So when she passed, I took the money that she left me and created this business. Her maiden name was Bellemore, so I thought naming the business after her was a fitting way to honor her memory.

Whenever you do a cross country road trip there are things in between stops that aren't encompassed in the cities themselves. Those are sometimes the most fun. I have to say though, in Canada, there's not a whole lot in between and when you do find something, it's...read more
Our family is not the sit on the beach and relax kind of vacationers. We're more of the drive all over and explore things we've never seen, the weirder, the better type of family. So when we were trying to think of where to go on our "last" family vacation before our...read more
By the time we got to Niagara Falls, we were all tired! We had been walking 10-12 miles a day, stuck in a car between cities for hours on end and we were pretty much sick of seeing each other. The kids actually asked if they could skip Niagara Falls and just drive...read more
Toronto, ON is something to visit right after the Raptors won the NBA title. The city is still buzzing from the win and the days we were there were during "Kawai" watch, which I found out was a watch to see if their star player was going to return to the team or sign...read more
Ottawa was our favorite city on the trip. The kids loved it because it was the first city that spoke English and after a week of being in French territory that was a welcome comfort. Buffalo Wings were back on the menu at restaurants. We didn't even get to explore...read more
One of the coolest places we visited and the place that looked most like what I pictured Canada to look like was a town about 3 1/2 hours northeast of Quebec City that was only reachable by ferry. On a map it's called Innue-Essipit or just Essipit. It's a First...read more
Our family doesn't like to be "tourists" we prefer to be educated travelers. We tend not to go to chains, unless they are chains we don't have. (I'm looking at you Tim Horton's) We want to experience places as if we were locals. Obviously, there are certain tourist...read more
Our first stop in Canada- Quebec City, QC. Scott had been there in February a few years ago for a business trip and even in the dead of winter he thought it was a beautiful city. This is the closest to a European city as you may find in this hemisphere. Quebec City...read more
