Photo by Eight 25 Photography - Cassandra Dornates

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Jessica Backes and I am the owner, manager and head photographer of Simply Bella Real Estate Photography. Originally from central Ohio now residing and primarily serving the Sanford, North Carolina area.


I started off from my high school photography class and head photographer of the yearbook to being the designated photographer for Washington D.C. Congressional Galas. While attending college I worked in a real estate office taking photos of new listings. I have always enjoyed photography and adding real estate into the mix made it a perfect fit. I started my independent business Simply Bella Photography in 2015. After living in horse country I expanded my photography to custom homes, horse ranches and estates. My goal is to maximize your home value through a lens.

Born and raised in a military family moving frequently and I am used to the process of buying, selling, staging and moving homes. A wife and mother with two daughters a yellow Labrador Retriever and a Boxer/Mastiff. I enjoy spending time with my family, running, event planning and traveling.


For more information please contact me at your best convenience. I truly look forward to hearing from you.
