A LITTLE ABOUT ANGELA...
Owner / Photographer
I am a mother of two young boys, who definitely keep me and my husband on our toes! I’m an Accredited Member of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, and have been in business since 2013. In 2021 I was honoured to be a Finalist in the NZ Photography Awards Family Category. I love photographing those important family milestones - from maternity, newborn and beyond, and newborns and older babies are my specialty. Since I started working in this industry, I've been busy photographing, studying, and educating myself. I pride myself in being highly experienced in handling and soothing newborns, and in capturing those first smiles and giggles of growing tots. I love babies of all ages: their squishy little toes, sweet smiles, and tiny button noses.
Using touches of texture and soft pops of colour, I create timeless artwork that will be treasured for years to come.
I will always advocate for getting everyone in front of the camera, and creating special images that your children will treasure as they grow older. I hate being in front of the camera myself, and have to push down all those thoughts of "oh I'm too fat for photos", or "my hair doesn't look right" or "I look too tired", and get in frame with my two gorgeous boys every now and then too. Because at the end of the day, they don't see any of that - they just see mum. And one day, they will look back on our images and be able to see the love - and that is exactly how I want them to remember me. So I challenge you all to do the same - get in the frame, make lasting photographic memories for your children. They'll thank you for it in years to come.
