more about me

Hello! I am Angela, a maternity, newborn, family, personal branding, and school portrait photographer based in the DC, Southern Maryland, and Northern Virginia areas. I'm passionate about what I do, and love capturing genuine and candid moments. From your images, I create keepsakes such as story albums, print folio collections, and custom wall galleries.

I also educate parents and teens through my Happy Snaps Workshop classes. I love sharing the art of photography with others. So, whether you are looking for a photographer who is going to capture authentic photos of your family and personal brand, or interested in taking a photography workshop, then you've arrived at the right place. Stay awhile and look around. When your'e ready, send me a message so we can chat about your photography needs.

About Angela

- mike & Khrystine

" Angela is just amazing! I was pretty blown away by her extreme attention to detail and love of printed photos. While on the shoot, her amazing husband Ishmael made sure we were always taken care of. They are a dream team... I love her use of light and vibrant colors!"

- Jake & Patty

"After giving birth to our last child I knew I wanted to create memories that we could all look back on years from now. Angela and Ish made us all feel at ease; it was so much fun and we didn’t feel like we had to “fake” smile. She’s very professional and her work is phenomenal. 

- Kristine

"I would highly recommend Angela! She is warm, talented, and very professional. Photographs can be taken by just about anyone, but not everyone sees a picture the same way. Let her capture the true essence of your life, family, child, etc... and allow your story to be told."

book your session

You understand that it's about more than pictures. 
It's about capturing those cute baby rolls, the stage of your child's life when their front teeth are missing, or when they are graduating from high school and transitioning into adulthood. It's about freezing time and documenting who you and your loved ones are, right now at this moment. It's about passing down tangible memories to your children and grandchildren. It's about your family tree, and preserving your legacy for the generations to come. It's about you being in the photos! The images you invest in now will only become more valuable as time passes. 

“One day, all your children will have is pictures of you. Make sure you’re in them. No matter what your hair looks like, your makeup, or your body, they won’t care about any of that, they’ll just want to see you.” - Unknown
