I am just a Southern girl with Mid-West roots, raising a family in Kansas City. You are definitely gonna hear me say "y'all" and you'd be correct to assume that I think sweet tea is liquid magic. I am known for changing my hair, adventures in the kitchen, dresses with pockets, movies based on the comics I read as a kid and for being the "gamer" mom. My guilty pleasures include binge watching Vikings and Game of Thrones and I may or may not have been a world ranked healer in the most epic RPG of all time, World of Warcraft.

A true romantic at heart, Angela has the audacity to think she can change a person's life in the span of a few short hours. Whether she is the calm guiding light to a stressed bride on her wedding day, the instigator of smiles from the teen who'd rather not be in front of the camera or the confidence builder to the woman who thinks she could never do a boudoir shoot, Angela knows exactly how to connect with her clients on a personal level and create the most powerful images her clients have ever received of themselves.

make your day unforgettable

We believe in treating you like family. We believe in kindness and compassion. We believe in love at first sight and we strive to see the good and infinite beauty possessed by every human being we encounter and then we capture that beauty and show our clients the most beautiful portraits they have ever seen of themselves.


William Faulkner once said, "Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories," and we agree. What better way to keep memories alive than through a photograph that captured the moment before it had passed?


We believe each love story is unique. We promise, if you decide to work with us, that we will go above and beyond your expectations and deliver the ultimate experience for you and your loved ones. Whether it is for a wedding, a family or milestone session or even a first-48 newborn session, we will deliver the most beautiful photographic art that I can assure will be treasure for years to come.
