This has to be one of my favorite Yelp reviews. One time I photographed mini sessions for a preschool grade which was hosted at one of the family’s homes in Orinda. There were about 20 families that showed up. Most of the children were cooperative and game for the session, but one little girl was not having any of it. Every time I brought up my camera she would pout or burrow into her mom’s chest. I realized that she was feeling threatened by my proximity to her so I switched to a longer lens and spotted some cute toys nearby. We encouraged her to play with the toys and before long she was having fun and seemed to totally forget that I was there snapping away. I love to photograph children of all different temperaments and personalities. It makes my job interesting and rewarding on many levels!
“We recently had the pleasure of working with Angela. Our objective was to have a family portrait taken of myself, my husband and two daughters (4 & 2). Our littlest one can be quite dourer at times and we were prepared to have some lovely photos of three of us with our little one pouting in every picture. Much to our surprise Angela worked her magic and we ended up with some amazing pictures. Her creativity, poise and gentleness with our children provided an environment that enabled her to take some phenomenal photos. We couldn’t be happier. The first time I saw the photos I got a lump in my throat and tear in my eye. They were simply wonderful. They perfectly captured the essence of childhood, carefree and innocent. Thank you Angela for the wonderful experience and beautiful pictures.”
