“Truth be told, I’d had a terrible morning the day of our photoshoot. I had been crying and felt drained. There was a part of me that wanted to back out of the session and crawl into bed. But, I know how hard Angie works to put together her shoots, and because she’s in such high demand, combined with my busy schedule, it would be a while before we could set up a new date. I knew I had to just pull it together.
As soon as I saw Angie, my energy started to shift. She is always full of light and so much fun to be around. I started feeling less like Eyeore and more like Tigger. During the shoot, I was smiling, laughing, and back to my whole self again, thanks to Angie.
In the past, I have not enjoyed having my picture taken and tended to be very critical of myself. Working with Angie is different. Her gift of capturing the essence of the person she is working with, makes it easy to relax and feel comfortable in front of her camera.
I value her eye for angles, lighting, and composition. I value her bubbly personality and patience. I value her comfortable and professional style.
Having up-to-date, beautiful, radiant photography that captures the essence of my businesses and who I am, is critical because it either draws people in, or turns them off. The photo story Angie creates is captivating and compelling.
When you’re planning your own shoot, have fun with it – but that is a given when you are working with Angie. I think the next most important thing would be to love the process with no hesitation.
If you are considering hiring her, do it. You will love the experience and your photos.” – Tamara
