I’ve never modeled for photos like that before and Angel made me feel like a pro! All the shots came out so great I couldn’t even pick a favorite! I love having Angel photograph me, and I look forward to working with her more often.Jennifer, model
Despite having only 30 minutes for our shoot, to my surprise, the pictures were great! I’m awkward in front of the camera anyway, but Angel was able to get me to relax and have fun. Could she capture good images while I was nervous and in a hurry...she did!Tami, a mother/daughter shoot
My experience with Angel was exciting! She made me feel like a real model! Along with her being open to my creativity, she gave me very helpful tips and ideas for more fun and beautiful shots! My experience with Angel was one of a kind!Jewel, model
The pictures you took of our newborn in her most fragile moments are absolutely precious. She is already growing so fast that it is a treasure to be able to look back on those sweet, sleepy moments. I'm already looking forward to the next shoot!Allie, born 2013
Choosing Angel was the best decision ever! We love our engagement photos, and she even included our dog! Everyone was impressed with our Save The Date cards, which Angel designed for us. Angel’s kindness and talent is stellar. We feel fortunate to have worked with her!Meghan and Rod, Married 2014
As a native of Virginia Beach, it’s nice to be back from the DC metro area breathing again the fresh salt air. I’ve lived on the East and West Coasts, in bustling cities and in quiet sleepy towns. Virginia Beach is my childhood home, where the sweet comfort of family and friends fills my heart. Growing up in dance and theater started my passion for storytelling; now, I’m doing it through photography and digital art. Before becoming a photographer, I was a full time professional makeup artist-hair stylist, and a part time dance instructor. I’ve worked with creative teams and talented photographers throughout my life. I didn’t realize it then, but it had a profound influence on my future.
My name is Angel. I’m a soul searcher, people lover, beauty maker, art creator.
Transitioning my long-time hobby into a full-time profession was a humbling leap of faith. Suddenly, I was surrounded by students my adult daughter’s age who’d never used a roll of film! Challenging doesn’t begin to describe the technical side of this business, yet it feeds my geeky soul without stepping on my creative mojo. Photography is my art-drug of choice, and allows me to marry my background in hair, makeup and performing arts to my digital nerdiness. Luckily, my clients give me the privilege of peeking intimately into their lives to create my art. I am truly honored and humbled by their unconditional vulnerability.
My work is deeply inspired by real connections. Connections to people, places and paths, and to our view of the world. I’m looking for your authentic self, and when I find it through my looking glass, there is nothing more beautiful.
