After a decade of photographing other genres, I finally found my true calling in portraits and personal branding. I'm passionate about helping women look and feel their best, so I created Angela Atelier. My mission is to provide a studio experience that focuses on the journey, not perfection or self-judgment. I help women change how they see themselves through photography and improve their lives.

🎨 Unlock the magic of color in your photoshoot!

Choosing the perfect colors that complement your skin and eye hues can elevate your portraits to a new level and change the mood of each portrait. 📸

Delete all this technical stuff - keep it simple. Start by understanding your undertones – warm, cool, or neutral. Warm undertones thrive in earthy tones like reds and yellows, while cool tones dazzle in blues and greens. Neutrals? Lucky you! You can rock a spectrum! 💁♀️

Consider your eye color, too; complementary shades make those peepers pop! 👀

✨ Experiment with jewel tones for a bold statement or pastels for a soft, dreamy vibe. Don't forget contrast – light backgrounds enhance dark features, and vice versa. Trust your instincts, but don't shy away from expert advice. 🤓💬

🙌 Feeling grateful for my progress this year, but the real highlight has been finding supportive communities like Entreprenista, Likeminded Collective, and Next Generation.

As Thanksgiving approaches, I want to express my gratitude because these supportive communities have made a difference in my life and business. 🤝

Wishing you all a joyful Thanksgiving filled with gratitude and surrounded by loved ones. ❤️🦃

📸 Capturing the Beauty Behind the Lens 🎨

In photography, makeup isn't just about enhancing beauty; it's a transformative art that helps us convey stories through visuals. As a photographer, I've witnessed the incredible power of makeup in photoshoots, and I'm here to spill the secrets.

💄 Makeup is our trusty sidekick. It's the tool that helps women feel confident and beautiful. It adds depth, texture, and character to every shot, making you come alive and feel fabulous.

✨ Subtle contouring can define cheekbones, while bold lipstick can shout confidence. It's not about masking flaws but accentuating what makes you uniquely beautiful.

📢 That's why our Tailored session includes a full transformation by our talented hair and makeup artist. Makeup is the hero.
It's the whisper in the photographer's ear that says, "This is the story we're telling today." Remember, the magic is not just in the click of the shutter; it's in the strokes of the makeup brush. 🌟

🌟 Embracing the Beauty of World Gratitude Day 🌟

On this World Gratitude Day, I reflect on the incredible journey photography has taken me on. 📸 It's not just about capturing moments; it's about capturing the essence of life itself.

Every click of the shutter is a moment frozen in time, a testament to the beauty surrounding us. Today, I express my deep gratitude for the privilege of being able to explore the world through my lens.

I am thankful for the people I've met along the way, the stories I've heard, and the connections I've forged through my photographs. Each image holds a unique tale, a slice of someone's life, and the power to evoke emotions in ways words simply cannot.

Let us all take a moment today to pause, reflect, and express our gratitude for the world's wonders. 🙏 Let's remember that even in challenging times, beauty can be found if we choose to see it.

So, here's to a world full of stunning vistas, precious moments, and the magic of photography that allows us to relive them. Happy World Gratitude Day, dear friends!

May your hearts be filled with appreciation for the beauty surrounding us all. 📷❤️

If you still need to brand your business, you're working too hard. Let me explain why.

Years ago, I made the mistake of trying to market my services without a cohesive brand. It was like throwing spaghetti at a wall and hoping something would stick. I got frustrated and convinced myself that I just wasn't a marketer.

But here's the truth: marketing wasn't the problem. The problem was a lack of clarity. 👀Like anything, knowing who you are means knowing your direction. It's the same with marketing. Knowing your brand identity makes everything easier.

So, if you're tired of spinning your wheels and ready to get traction on your marketing, it's time to get clarity on your brand.

It's such a game-changer I created a free guide to get you started. Get it now. Click the link in the profile 👆

There's no such thing as the perfect weight, "right look," or the "right time" for a photoshoot. It's a moving target; we find more reasons to downplay our accomplishments when we get there. We get that promotion (or our kids through college) but still feel we're not enough to be celebrated and seen.

Today, I want to remind you that true fulfillment comes from embracing who you are in this very moment. YOU ARE ALREADY WORTHY OF BEING CELEBRATED, OF BEING SEEN IN EXQUISITE PHOTOGRAPHY.

YES, you deserve to be that confident, radiant woman on the magazine cover!

At our studio, we believe in embracing your authentic self right now in the body that we're in. Now is the perfect time to shift our focus away from external appearances and genuinely appreciate what's inside you. A portrait session at our studio is the perfect act of self-love and acceptance.

Reach out today, and let's chat about your incredible story.

As someone who has learned to celebrate progress over perfection, I want to share my journey of personal growth with all of you.

One of my top priorities has been to improve my speaking skills and equip myself with all the necessary tools for successful podcasting ventures. But here's the thing—it's not about being flawless. It's about fostering authentic connections through shared experiences.

Along the way, I discovered the power of embracing imperfection. It has given me the freedom to explore new ideas without the fear of failure or judgment. It's all part of the learning process, and sometimes, you just have to dive in and make changes as you go.

Remember, you don't have to know everything right from the start. The most important thing is to take that first step and gain valuable experience along the way. So go ahead, embrace imperfection, and start your own journey of growth and discovery.

🌟 From Corporate to Entrepreneurship: My Journey of Transformation 🌟

When I started my business in 2018, I was 52 and desperately needed change. 💼 I had a skill and ideas but needed more time and energy. Working in Corporate drained me, leaving little left to bring Angela Atelier to life.

Photographer for the Modern Woman.

I know what it's like to struggle with self image and being photographed. A women first has to believe she's worthy. Then she has to gather courage and trust (in her photographer). It's no wonder many women avoid being photographed professionally. Yet, photographs celebrate who we were back in the day, who we are now and leave our legacy for generations to come. My mission is to help you celebrate life's milestones, and the moments in between, with exquisite photographs.
