Does having your photo taken push you outside your comfort zone?

Are you looking for someone to hold space for you. To make it safe so you can really be seen?

How would it feel to finally see yourself the way your loved ones see you?

It’s totally normal to feel vulnerable coming into a photography session, especially if you are not normally in front of the camera. 

We will work together to design a session where there will be space for you to open up and show your true essence.

Whether it’s during a portrait session, branding or business portraits, a workshop or retreat, or a portrait of your fur-kid. Your essence deserves to be captured.

It’s what everyone who knows and loves you, sees when they look at you.
That is what I want to show you in your images. 

Focusing on your legacy

I will work with you in your contemporary portrait session to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

During our complimentary consultation we will chat about your ideas for a session. This might be something for you alone, or an experience you want to share with a loved one. 
Creating beautiful images is a team effort, and I will hold a safe space for you so that your photographs will be cherished.

I have been through a lot of changes since my first shoot with Angela, and she was the only person I wanted to capture them in a shoot.

I’m a lot more confident in my body, and I think that really shows in the images Angela and her team created. I feel feminine, l feel happy, I feel powerful and I feel whole

Capturing the essence of your brand

Are your current images representative of the message you want to convey to you peers or clients?
We will have a chat to discuss what your needs are now, and also what might serve you best in the next 6 to 12 months. 
Think about;
Areas of your business that aren’t receiving the exposure you would like.
New services or offers you would like to bring to market.
Or how updated business portraits may help you move your career path forward. 

Angela provided photography work on quite a few projects for our company.

She was quick to respond in the meeting request, professional and friendly when dealing with our staff and her images were beautiful and just what we needed! She follows instructions very easily. 
We appreciate the quick turnaround time as well!

We look forward to working with Angela again.

Why your story matters to me

I’ve always loved flicking through old photo albums, looking at the visual history of my own family and talking about the stories behind the images.

But I also understand why you hesitate to be present in photographs. It’s easier to hide and not have to open up or be vulnerable. 

Let me show you who you are. Let me hold the mirror so you can see what it is everyone else sees in you.
