Hello. I’m Angela
I am not a wedding or portrait photographer.
At least, not in the traditional sense. The outside world has skewed what real beauty is. I find it hard to photograph these things for these reasons. People who like my photographs will adore imperfections. They will appreciate the unfiltered unfussed way I shoot things. Unfortunately, negative body image and the beauty industry has taken these precious things away from us. I can’t undo this. You will have your perceptions of beauty. You will also have your own insecurities. If you can’t embrace your “flaws” as beautiful or as unique, then you will most likely not like my images. But if you find these traits fascinating and beautiful, then you will like my work and maybe we can create something beautiful together.
It took me a while to get here.
I have been shooting since I was 14. I tried to do what others did before me. I have over 20 years of photoshop experience. When I was told to remove wrinkles, blemishes, belly fat, it killed me. I looked at what I was doing and realized I was just contributing to the illusion. I had to step back. I started rejecting projects. I wanted to work with people who could see past all this. There weren’t many.
I believe that…
