  • Welcome to my blog!

    YOU . . . You love fun and artistic photography that captures emotion. You want to feel comfortable with someone who puts you at ease and brings out your personality. You value working with an established, experienced professional whom you can trust with your visual memories.
    ME . . . Photography is my chosen career and lifelong fascination. I see beauty in everyoneand am inspired by people, light, and nature. I have owned and operated my photo studio since 2000, and specialize in photographing newborns, babies, children, and families. I hold a degree in Photojournalism and used to work as a professional Photojournalist. I adore children of all ages and enjoy capturing their whimsical nature and many expressions.

    "I feel so blessed to have found Angela. I trust her 100% when it comes to capturing my family's history. I know I will be brought to more happy tears in the future. Thank you Angela for doing what you do. You truly are the best!"" ~ Charlene

    " “Refreshingly playful and engaged. The joy you weave into the shared experience makes us feel at ease and safe to be intimately honest in front of the camera."

The week leading up to this session I excitedly told friends that soon I would be photographing my very first client who was a six month-old cherub 17 years ago! Just look at her now, a 5″10 gorgeous young woman. A few years later her beautiful sister arrived and I photographed her as a young girl. This is their fourth photo session with me — each one is more fun than the last.

I love that they brought their dog Shadow to the session for some candid shots. When I look back at my photography career I treasure the most families like these who come to me over the span of several years. Such an honor to be this family’s photographer for the past 17 years!

I had the pleasure of photographing this attorney/founding partner’s headshot last month for his firm’s website as well as Linkedin. Before having me update his headshot, the image on his Linkedin page was a snapshot that had the visual noise of florescent lights in the background and uneven lighting that didn’t show his true skin tone. His new image is cleaner and more professional.

Wow, this family and I go waaaaay back! This is their fourth or fifth photo session with me — the first one was when they were two and three years-old! Two of my favorite images of them from their younger years is still on my website…scroll down to see how much they’ve grown since then.

There’s a back story on how this most recent photo session came to be which I have to share. So a couple of months ago I was running some errands at night when I see the girl’s mom. It was dark so she didn’t recognize me when I waved. I was dying to know how she and her daughter’s had been doing all these years so I left a business card on her windshield wishing them well. A few days later she called me and booked!

One of my favorite photos is one of them tossing up rose pedals at a rose garden that I had custom framed years ago. I brought it to show them and when I found out that they didn’t have that version I gave it to them! It is such and honor to be trusted by a family to document and capture their family’s visual memories.

This sweet girl was and absolute dream to photograph and her adoring parents were just as delightful! We had a blast with their six year-old daughter who was 100% into having her photos take which made for a really fun session.

We had some of the most glorious Bay Area weather on this day. . .the ground was richly colored from the night’s rain, and the sun was peeking through the trees giving us just enough for some lovely back-lighting. I’m excited to create some beautiful products for this family soon!
