A Photographer That Tells Your Story

Work With Deb

Welcome to Bell Imaging & Design LLC. Debra Bell, the company owner, provides photography, graphic design and writing services to individuals, families and businesses in Maine. Based in beautiful Hermon, Maine (just outside of Bangor) my sole goal is to help you tell your story in the best way possible, on budget and on time.

I will be your partner in creating wonderful wedding and event photographs, meaningful family portraits, practical and profit-oriented business photographs, engaging portraits celebrating life events with your loved ones – whether they’re humans or pets.

Deb has a degree in print journalism from the University of Maine and has experience working in a commercial print shop, the Bangor Daily News Special Sections department, and the UMaine marketing and communications department. With over 15 years of experience and numerous awards for graphic design under her belt, Deb knows how to help businesses stand out and individuals shine.

Deb is a lifelong resident of Maine with a passion for travel and the outdoors.

Bell Imaging & Design provides three specific services:


Photography is more than the click of a button — it’s freezing a moment in time. It’s creating images that entice people to come to your business or buy your product. It’s investing in your family relationships (pets and people). Ultimately, photography creates a visual document saying: “I was here. These are the ones I love. And this is my gift: Just for you.”

Deb specializes in business photography and pet photography (head on over to Bell’s Furry Friends Photography to learn more about pet photography).

Graphic design

Good graphic design expresses a message while creating a visual and engaging product. Using a graphic designer means you’re investing in the time and talent of a person whose sole purpose is to create something uniquely you.

For businesses, good graphic design ties in the business identity and expresses the message that they want to share in a consistent and clear manner. It’s the difference between using an online template that your competitors are probably using, and having something unique to you.

For individuals, it’s investing in creating a keepsake. From invitations, announcements, posters, gifts and other products, a graphic designer can help you break away from templates and create something unique.

Writing and editing

Not everyone is a wordsmith (and that’s OK!) so sometimes you just need another person to step in and write with a new set of eyes. Copywriters create content that is evocative, engaging and interesting all while sharing your message. An outside point of view is often helpful, especially when you’re creating new content. Deb specializes in creating content that has the integrity of the business while also creating content you can be proud to have in your brochure or website. Already written some content? Deb offers editing and proofreading services as well to help you hone your current content.
