Hi! I'm Angela. Thanks for stopping by!
I am based in Highlands Ranch, CO, and have a studio in the front room of my home, which means you come to my house as a guest and a friend, and not just a client. I also have several favorite spots to recommend if you are looking for something on location.
I am a Type A, perfectionist, which means (GOOD NEWS FOR YOU!) I work hard every single session to give you the very best. It also means (BAD NEWS FOR ME!) I don't sleep well at night. I absolutely love the time I get to spend with you, my client, and am honored and humbled by how many people come to me to capture their life in images. I'm kind of a goof, so it's pretty easy for you and your kids to feel comfortable (even if it means you are laughing at me!).
I have worked hard over the past ten years to learn everything I can, and to purchase the best equipment that (lots of) money can buy. If having quality photos is important to you, you are in the right place! I try to maintain a delicate balance of paying myself back for the time I am away from my family and the money I spend on training and equipment, with being affordable, and not raising my prices just because I can get away with it. I am extensively trained in newborn photography, which sets me apart from a lot of photographers who do not specialize in it. Your experience with me, and your final product, will be worth every penny - I promise it!
I always put half of your session fee back into my business - to buy better equipment and props. I also believe in giving a good portion of what's left away. There are a few non-profits that help with human trafficking victims, both here in Denver and in Africa, that are close to my heart. Know that you are helping support these as well when you hire me.
I strongly believe that you should be able to own your finished images! I give you all of the fully edited, good images that we get in an online gallery where you can download them all from the ease of your living room. I also offer quality printed products too, with no pressure, just in case you want to turn that favorite gorgeous image into a piece of art.
When I'm not at a session, or editing, I love to spend my time with my husband, a recovering Californian, and my three kiddos. I love to run, bike and swim, and train for races when I can find the time. I am passionate about my relationships - with my God, with my family and with my friends. I love to be outside any second I can. I need pills to sleep at night. I am the queen of projects, especially if it has to do with updating my house. I love to live and laugh with people. I am a healthy eater, but I can seriously binge on some chocolate, or cookie dough, or margaritas, or anything with sugar in it really. I try to not go too long between runs and concerts. I believe life should be fun. Laughing is my favorite.
I can't wait to meet you and share your special occasion with you! Please don't hesitate to call me or email me with any questions.
