I'm Angela!
a DMV photographer and Storyteller for Energetic and fun-loving families.

Want to know a secret? My favorite sessions aren’t the easy-breezy ones. They aren’t the ones where the children sit quietly and smile for the camera. The sessions I can’t get enough of are actually the loud, rowdy ones with squirmy kids giggling hysterically while climbing all over mom and dad. Yep, some photographers’ worst nightmare is actually my dream session! So, you can go ahead and wave goodbye right now to the worry your kids won’t sit still through a session. Trust me; the candid images are the ones you’re going to treasure most. 

When I’m not planning sessions or photographing families, I’m probably homeschooling my two children, playing Animal Crossing ( I know, I know...I’m totally addicted!) with the soundtrack to my favorite musical playing in the background, cuddling up with my dogs to catch up on some reality TV (with popcorn and chocolate, of course!), or falling asleep to one of my favorite audiobooks. I love sweet, fruity teas and mind-blowing sci-fi stories. Most of all, I love entering fully into every beautiful moment I’m given in this life with the ones I love most.

I can’t wait to swap music recommendations and hilarious kid stories while we plan an unbelievable photo session just for you! 

The power of photography and its ability to keep loved ones close long after they’re gone has played a pivotal role in my life. I am passionate about giving families this uniquely powerful way of passing on their legacy to the next generation. But I am equally driven to deliver beautiful artwork through a relaxed experience. So, today, I give families like yours a stress-free way to decorate their homes with timeless, bold works of art that tell their stories.
While we still have so much to plan together, one thing’s for sure: this DMV child and family photographer can’t wait to create a photography experience just for you as we turn moments into real, tangible heirlooms your family will pass down for generations. 

My Passion for storytelling

Reminding parents of who they were before the kids arrived is so much fun for me! Asking the kids to step behind the camera with me while we give their parents a few moments to be together always makes magic. 


While I love capturing interactions between people, I also love catching the little objects that mark the season of life you’re currently in. From the sweet little bow your mom gave your baby girl to the missing two front teeth to the bright red rain boots your kindergartner is now obsessed with, I keep an eye out for the unique details that could easily slip by unnoticed. These are the little things that define your “now.”

The details

Nothing breaks the ice better than a massive family group hug! They instantly create an upbeat vibe and get everyone laughing like nothing else can. So, get ready to bear hug it at some point during your session with me!

Moments of true joy captured on camera are priceless. So, genuine bursts of laughter mid-session are the stuff my dreams are made of. But it’s really the photo after the laugh that I love most. Your eyes glitter a little brighter, and your smile comes a little easier as you’re flooded with a joy that can’t be faked.

Nothing beats the moment when a family truly forgets they are in front of a camera. As the kids play just like they would any day after school and a spouse gently kisses their love on the forehead, I catch little glimpses of your ordinary life, transforming it into beautiful art you can treasure.

The three words that I always have in mind with every click of my shutter are joy, love, and connection! I’m all about real and authentic moments. You won’t find any stiff poses, fake smiles, or awkward hugs around here. Let’s celebrate and document this season of your life, and create a collection of photographs for you to enjoy everyday. #ConnectionOverPerfection
