Hi, I'm Margaret Bell, I have loved photography ever since I could remember.  I started about 20 years ago taking photographs for family and friends.  I then branched out into a small side business after I started getting referrals.   I enjoy being a part of a family's big day such as a wedding and doing whatever I can to preserve their cherished memories.  I love the intimacy in the family sessions, and capturing the bond between family members.

I love spending time with my own family and especially enjoy playing Pokemon-Go with my grandchildren!  It is not unusual to find me down at Main street in St. Charles with my grandchildren chasing the elusive Pikachu!!

My favorite musical artists are Barbra Streisand and Rob Thomas.   I was finally able to fulfill a lifelong dream of mine to see Barbra live in concert recently in Chicago! 

Hi, My name is Robin Richmond, 2nd shooter for Margaret Bell Photography, and unlike Margaret, I do not have a cool, professional picture of myself like she does! Go figure!!!  So for now, this selfie will have to do!   I started doing photography about 15 years ago.   About 10 years ago I met Margaret on the Steve and DC message board, shortly thereafter I started doing photography with Margaret, shadowing her on her jobs, and now work as her 2nd shooter.   I also now do most of the photo editing for her as well.   My biggest satisfaction I get from my work with photography is the clients reaction when they see the finished product!

I was born and raised in Saint Louis.  I like to ride my bike, play tennis and spend time with my niece and nephews.  Like Margaret, you can often spy me down on Main Street with my nephews chasing the Pokemon, gotta catch 'em all!!
