lifestyle photography for the light hearted and free spirited

Serving the Washington DC, Southern Maryland, and Northern Virginia areas

Modern lifestyle photography that captures the real moments of your joy, love, & connection


Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this time in your life deserves to be remembered. We love creating photos to remind families that in spite of the fact that your car floor may be covered in cereal, your laundry room looks like an episode of hoarders, and you feel like you're in a permanent state of exhaustion; your love and story are beautiful. 

We create authentic, expressive, and genuine photography that celebrates your fabulous, everyday life!
Our lifestyle photography is all about capturing the real you at this time in your lives.
Our mission is to capture your Joy, Love, and Connection.

 We believe in getting to know our clients, having fun at photo sessions, and printing your photos!

hello & Welcome


Angela Vaughns Photography offers lifestyle family photography in the DC, Northern Virginia, and Southern Maryland areas.

So, Angela is just amazing! She met with my wife and I for about an hour a few weeks before the shoot to show us all her packages and printing mediums. 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... like a true dream and the finished work is pretty darn awesome. I love her use of light and vibrant colors!

After giving birth to our last child I knew I wanted to create memories that we could all look back on years from now. Seeing Angela’s work I decided to give her a go! Angela was there every step of the way. She and her husband Ish made us all feel at ease. We had lifestyle photos done and it was so much fun! It was very relaxing and it didn’t feel like we had to “fake” smile. I would highly recommend Angela! She’s very professional and her work is phenomenal.

I would highly recommend Angela's session and skills. 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.
