As a mom of four, I am rarely in a picture. Angela took the time to capture some really wonderful photos of me and my son, Auggie. She was very patient with us. It's hard to make a toddler sit down for a photo, but Angela was very calm. She was so sweet to my son. He instantly bonded with her, making it easy to get several awesome photos of the two of us. I definitely recommend her - especially for family, action shots. I will definitely use her again.

We had a great experience with Angie. My fiancee and I worked with her on our engagement pictures.She understood what we wanted for our save the dates, and worked with us to make the experience enjoyable and also productive. She had great locations in mind and was open to ideas from us. She communicated with us in a timely matter about all our concerns and informed us if weather was ever a problem. We appreciate the variety of shots that we were able to choose from. Angie was a delight to work with and we are looking forward to using her in the future.

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.
