About


Hello! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Bella Bonito is a food and photography blog about cooking, urban farming, traveling and other foodie adventures of my personal life. I'm a freelance documentary photographer for the past 10+years, based in Seattle. I grew up in a fishing town in southern Japan and married into a Norwegian American family with the commercial fishing background. These factors influence what I cook and what I like to eat often. I'm also a mother of two busy kids.  They are the reason why started this blog.  I wanted to have a portal to communicate with them and this blog is also my journal for them.  

If you want to inquire about photography services, please contact me by email

  1. Rika, I just happened on to your site and it's wonderful! It's fantastic to know I have such a talented woman in my (extended) family. How you organized all this is very good, readable, not confusing, interesting, and artistic. And your photos of the food make it all look very delicious (and I don't even like mussels!). Aunt Sandy

  2. I can't remember how I found your site, but it's my favorite blog. The photography, the food, the darling children, and your writing all suit my sensibilities and create a lovely world, straightforward, down to earth, charming. So many blogs I've been seeing lately seem to be attempts to build a cult around the blogger, but you're totally unpretentious. I love the simplicity of your design and presentation. Good luck with your work.
