Portrait session

For Mom’s 70th, it was really important for us to capture the family love and do it in a way that felt natural. Angela #nailedit

The shoot was so relaxed and we could just interact and chat while you captured some amazing shots of us reminiscing or retelling our most cherished memories.

These are family keepsake photos of a shared experience where we celebrated Mum and showed her how much we appreciate her as daughters. Thank you for empowering us to do it in such a loving and comfortable way, where we shared stories and reconnected.

The photos encapsulate that magical feeling. What a special gift.

Angela creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere and interacts to make the special moments feel more natural. She is extremely talented.

However, in a city full of talent photographers, Angela sets herself apart by also being an incredible human who creates warmth and connection.

It was a pleasure to work with Angela. She is active, easygoing and ready to answer your questions 24/7.

I was kinda stressed to be photo shoot at the beginning but Angela relaxed me and environment overall was very friendly.

I liked photos very much! Thanks again! Recommend

Business Portraits

I had so much fun with Angela! Far more than I ever imagined as I usually don’t like being in front of the camera.

Angela was amazing to work with through the whole journey. Her awesome organisation and attention to detail really helped me feel more confident before even arriving at the studio as I know we’d put a lot of thought into outfits and locations (we got some cool mural shots!).

Plus, Angela’s direction in the studio was fantastic.
She made me feel comfortable right away and guided me through simple tweaks to poses – things I’d never usually think of – which made so much difference to the final pics!

UNIFORM LOOKBOOK

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.

Business Portrait Session

I had a great time at my photo shoot with Angela. I didn’t have a good idea of exactly what I wanted from the photo shoot, or at least couldn’t articulate it well in words.


After a quick phone call with Angela, she somehow was able to extract exactly the look I was hoping for, and did an amazing job of planning out the shoot, helping me select my wardrobe, and coaching me through the poses.

The photos we got at the end were astounding, and I had immense difficulty selecting my photos because I wanted them all!

My favourite part specifically, was a pose we goofed around about which ended up turning out amazing. I didn’t end up using it as my new head shot, but Angela printed it out on a coupon for me to give out to my friends and everyone loved it.

Angela was a pleasure to work with! She was very professional; she captured beautiful, candid moments during our meetings without distracting anyone.

One of the pieces of feedback I received from participants afterwards was that they didn’t even notice that you were moving around snapping pictures. This is perfect given that we had executives in house; very impressive!

Lisa

Business Portrait Session

Angela is so fun to work with! We had a “girls” session with her and thoroughly enjoyed her presence, professionalism, and photos!

Not only did she make us feel comfortable and at ease through the session – she was professional, supportive and so kind.

I highly recommend Angela for head shots for anyone looking for a real and honest experience. Thank you!

Build your Brand Package

I selected Angela among a sea of local photographers in Vancouver to help me create a portfolio for my business. She was always accommodating, cheerful, and so attentive to every detail in every pose.

During every photo session I felt relaxed because I could completely trust that Angela knew what she was doing and could make every image look flattering.

The images were amazing and her edits were professional. She really has an eye for detail and connecting with exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you Angela for your gift!

Business Portrait Session

In one shot I was seen, listened and acknowledged by Angela.

She captured what I wanted to communicate professionally and personally.

The talent was there but more importantly, her empathy was immense. When you are changing the path of your life and career you need people on board.

Definitely, Angela is one of those.

Portait Session

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.

When I first shot with her I had been on HRT for about 6 months and was just becoming comfortable with my body. We created some really beautiful images.

A year later and I’ve had a few more “upgrades” that I wanted to give the full McConnell.

I have had a breast augmentation, laser hair removal, a few minor facial tweaks and the rest is all thanks to hormone therapy.

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

Angela really is great. I would highly recommend her! From the initial phone call to discuss my requirements through to putting me at ease during the photo shoots.


There were no surprises and the whole process just flowed and I believe this is because Angela was open, honest and upfront about the process.


Angela also went out of her way to find different locations and I am so excited to share my business headshots!

Workshop Coverage

I absolutely love working with Angela and enthusiastically recommend working with her to others. Her passion and heart can be felt from the moment you meet her.  With her you get a complete experience. Someone who genuinely cares and is invested in the outcome for you. The remarkably beautiful images as a result speak for themselves. 

She came out and captured an intimate Mother & Daughter Retreat I was hosting and her grace and attentiveness honoured the women who were there. Giving space when was needed and still capturing captivating moments they may never otherwise get to see for themselves. She provided a unique opportunity for them to view their relationship in a very special (and maybe even new) way. That’s a gift. 

The best part of the experience was Angela’s energy, attentiveness and dedication to capturing moments in an intimate and respectful way. Couple that with her raw talent and the outcome was a positive experience and stunning images.

I loved having my photos taken by Angela! She is so warm and welcoming, and immediately set me at ease. 

 

I don’t have many photos of me because I’m usually taking photos of my family. The photos that do exist, are not flattering at all.


Angela made me feel beautiful and even sexy, and gave me the gift of seeing myself as that again. 

 

I would highly recommend this to any woman… especially moms who often don’t get to feel that way.

Business Portrait Session

Doing my photos with Angela was so much fun! I was worried it would be awkward, but instead it was amazing and basically the most comfortable I’ve ever been in front of a camera.

My new headshots are gorgeous, and I am legitimately proud to put them on nearly everything I do now. 

Day-of, she helped keep a smile on my face by asking about a favourite funny moment from my life and then periodically referencing it throughout the shoot.

Workshop Coverage

Angela is a true professional.  She took the time to get to know me and my needs before she attended my event, then arrived, got down to business and provided me with the most lovely images of my retreat, all while seeming like she wasn’t even there.

 I was so grateful for attention to detail and for creating such a positive emotion within all of her pictures!  

I will definitely be using some of these shots for future advertising.  
Even coming from out of town, she arrived on time, got down to work and left without being noticed.  

The process for communicating online was easy and she had images available for me within a week.  So fabulous!

Tiffany Elsener

Workshop Coverage

Angela has been an absolute joy to work with. She photographed an inaugural event which was a workshop to empower women in their lives and provided support and resources to grow into the best version of themselves. Angela is a true professional, but also brings a very personable and warm approach to her photography.

I was stunned at how she was able to capture the huge range of emotions and activities, while being discreet and ensuring a safe and comfortable environment.
Overall we are thrilled with the time and thought prior to the event to prepare for success, her amazing day-of approach and her continuation with thorough follow-up and wrap-up.

The best part of this experience was the genuine and individualistic approach. From start to finish, Angela was focused on ensuring she captured the true essence of the event and tailored everything from her communication, timing, etc.

My recent branding photoshoot with Angela was phenomenal.
Angela’s warm authenticity made me feel comfortable, and she went the extra mile with little extra touches, on the day of the shoot.
And the photos were fantastic – I never knew I could look so good. As someone with very high standards, I would recommend Angela to anyone, in a heartbeat!

Thank you for making feel like Queen for a Day with professional makeup and pampering.  I felt very relaxed and comfortable with Angela behind the camera.  
Great reminder that everyone is beautiful.  The images are beautifully choreographed to look natural and me at my best.  
What a great gift to build any ladies self esteem.  The headshot will improve my business professional outlook.

Dora Kamau

Workshop Coverage

Angela was an awesome photographer at my recent self-care workshop.
She was extremely professional and personable. She provided all my attendees with goodie bags and they were well received!
Angela did an awesome job at capturing the event, and through her photographs, everything was portrayed so well!
I love how Angela was respectful of the meditation practices and decided not to take photos during that time.
She was super present and was able to capture some intimate moments during the workshop, that gives great insight into what I do! Also as a newly founded community, I appreciate the first session was complimentary!

Patricia LeBlanc

Business Portrait Session

OMG Angela is such an amazing photographer. I came to Angela as I was in the middle of rebranding my business and needed new pictures to reflect not only the true me but also my new brand. Angela really delivered on what I wanted.

I normally never ever take full body picture or I am partly hiding if I do take one. For the 1st time in years, I actually liked the full body picture that Angela took of me. I even got lots of compliments. One of the pictures that she took got over 225 likes on Facebook in a really short amount of time.

Angela is such a professional and so great at what she does. I highly recommend that if you need any pictures done, that you contact Angela to do them for you. You will not be disappointed.

Portrait Session

I had a wonderful time during my photoshoot with Angela. 

Not only did Angela take amazingly flattering photos but she also made me feel very comfortable and provided great direction during the shoot. 

I was extremely happy with my photos and plan to do another shoot in the near future. I highly recommend Angela.

I’ve been wanting to capture three generations of our family for awhile now and finally had the opportunity to have everyone together this past summer. I knew Angela would be perfect for the task as she had done a marvelous job of taking photos of me in the past.

With endless patience and good humour, Angela made the whole family feel comfortable and relaxed resulting in a collection of beautiful photos that we will treasure in the years to come.

Angela is an extremely talented, artistic and patient photographer.  She is very professional, yet a ton of fun to work with.  

She has the incredible skill of bringing out the best in people; she directs her clients into unique poses to really show their best sides.  

Angela takes care of her clients, making sure we receive the utmost quality in her finished products.  Angela’s vision, perfect timing, enthusiasm and creativity turn what could be a good photo, into a terrific one!
