We wanted to share a few more details about us here at Angela Vaughns Photography, so we wrote an extended version of our “About Us” section.
I’m Angela, (feel free to call me Angie), owner and lead photographer of Angela Vaughns Photography. My hubby Ishmael (Ish) and I live in Southern Maryland. We are high school sweethearts, and we’ve been married for 16 years. Together we have two amazing children and two rescue pups. Ish has served in the Army for over 20 years, and we (yes, we) are planning on retiring from the service in 5 years. I can’t wait to have him home with us and working the business full time together.
Fun Fact: We have been a homeschooling family for 6 years. Some days are more challenging than others, but we are enjoying our homeschooling journey. It’s absolutely amazing to teach our children and tailor their education for what is best for them.
About photography…So, yea. This is the part where I tell you that I have been taking pictures since birth, lol. Ok, maybe a few years after that. But, I have always been obsessed with pictures, photo albums, and framed portraits. I vividly remember flipping through our family albums as a child and asking my mom- who’s that? What were they like? Where were you when this picture was taken? I got it honestly. My father was a photographer. His images are still present on the walls in my mother’s home today. He passed when I was about 2, but his dark room stayed in tact for years after. I love the pictures I have of him. It keeps me connected to him, even though he’s not physically here with me. I use my maiden name Vaughns to honor him and his love of photography. I often think how cool it would’ve been for us to be in business together.
While I (Angie) am the photographer, Ish is the ultimate assistant! He will make sure you are totally taken care of during your session and that your lighting is amazing! Together, we create customized photo sessions for our clients and have a blast doing it. We love to laugh and ensure our clients are relaxed and are truly enjoying their session.
We guide clients through the entire process; location, wardrobe, hair, make-up – all the way through to where you hang your new artwork. We are print artists! You receive beautiful, professionally printed images and custom created wall galleries to feature in your home. What about the digitals, you ask? We realize that we are in a “digital era”. You will receive a digital copy of each image you purchase.
