  • Welcome to my blog!

    YOU . . . You love fun, artistic photography that captures emotion. You want to feel comfortable with someone who puts you at ease and brings out your personality. And, you value working with an established, experienced professional.
    ME . . . Photography is my chosen career and lifelong fascination. I see beauty in everyone, and 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 where I honed the skill of telling stories visually. 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.

Oh baby! Could Isla be any more beautiful and angelic? I enjoyed every minute of capturing her at 10 days young. She slept soundly throughout the session (and even grinned), which is the first of her three Grow With Me package sessions that her adoring parents purchased. Last year I photographed their family HERE, and am delighted that I will be photographing their baby girl’s first year milestones! Her next session will be when she’s sitting up in six months.

    Thank you so much Angela! These photos are better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you also for making it such an easy wonderful experience and bringing out the best in my daughter and family…. especially my seldom cooperative 2 year old!!

Congratulations to Ali on her Bat Mitzvah which took place at her beautiful home in Lamorinda with their lush vineyard as a stunning backdrop, and the reception was at the Veteran’s Memorial Building. We had glorious weather…overcast in the morning which is great for portraits and later the sun came out to light up the ceremony. Ali was absolutely delightful to photograph and she did an amazing job on her Bat Mitzvah.

These coming-of-age celebrations are when a 13 year old girl or boy has completed Hebrew school and are considered mature enough to understand spiritual concepts and to take responsibility for their beliefs.  I really enjoyed their fun and relaxed style, both as a family and for their event. It was an honor to capture this very special day for Ali and her family!

While updating my blog today I rediscovered this post which got me reminiscing about three highlights of my career, and thought it would be fun to share with my newer readers. In 2008 I photographed a book of babies and children published by Random House. This led to a 10-image feature and interview in the international Professional Photographer magazine as well as an interview by Shutter Sisters HERE.

For years I had looked through Professional Photographer magazine for visual and business motivation, so it was an incredible honor to be recognized by them. A big thank you to Stephanie Boozer for her great writing and to editor Cameron Bishopp and Kate Inglis for their interest in telling my story.

The book is titled ‘Vintage Knits for Modern Babies‘ and is available to purchase in book form HERE and in Kindle form on Amazon HERE — a great gift for a novice to experienced knitters (Mother’s Day is this month!).
