Welcome to Photography by Angela McConnell!

Flat lay of vintage telephone, camera and stationary designStop being unhappy with yourself. You are beautiful.
Stop wishing you looked like someone else or wishing people like you as much as they like someone else. You are loved. You are cared about.
Stop trying to get attention from people who don’t matter. Stop hating your body. Stop hating your face. Stop hating your personality.
Love your quirks. Embrace them.
They are what make you, you. Why would you want to be anyone else? Your potential is limitless.
Be confident. Smile. It’ll draw people in.
Repeat after me: My happiness will not depend on others anymore. I choose to be happy. I am happy because I love who I am.
I love my flaws. I love my imperfections.
They make me, me, and “me” is pretty amazing – Unknown

I have always loved flicking through old photo albums, looking at the visual history of my own family and talking about the stories behind the images. We are slowly losing this important part of our history in this digital age, where we are encouraged to share every facet of our lives online. I want you to have something tangible – printed images that will provoke discussion about your life and stories that will create a legacy for future generations.

My passion is photographing contemporary portraits. I love the one on one interaction with a client and earning your trust when you are feeling a bit vulnerable – I know exactly how that feels because I’ve been there too! Creating beautiful images is a team effort, and I would love to work with you on a session and images you will cherish.
