Angela Holden was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Earning degrees in Spanish & English from Stephen F. Austin State University. The Houston area has been Angela's home since 1993. She has been happily married since 1994 with 2 fabulous daughters. Upon receiving her first camera in 1985 at age 15 (a used Minolta 35mm) from her grandmother, she immediately fell in love with photography. She found she had a knack with kids and loved shooting their wonderful and honest expressions. Once she was expecting her first born in 2001, she started shooting professionally and upgraded to digital photography soon after. She edits all of her images (proficient in Photoshop) and designs all of her custom-made cards herself (no two are alike).
Angela has a flair for capturing the unexpected, the emotion, "the real life" of her subjects. She will shoot "typical" family photos, but her best work transpires when the families relax after a bit & act like they do when they are together without a photographer lurking about. She is frequently told things like: 'thank you! that was a lot of fun!', 'we needed that!', 'you made it easy!', 'that went faster than I thought!', etc.
You and your family can expect to take it easy during a photo shoot with Angela. Once the initial introductions take place, she just wants you to be yourselves and have fun! The more relaxed everyone is, the better your images will be. Generally, she shoots in an informal environment like your backyard or a nearby park, but will travel to new places. As far as clothing goes, everyone should like what they are wearing, preferably colors that compliment your personal coloring. You and your family do not have to match perfectly. "Going" together is nice, but most important are happy and relaxed faces!!!
Sessions generally take one to two hours. You can expect your gallery to be on-line within a week of your session (sometimes longer during the holidays). Once your order is placed, your merchandise usually arrives on your doorstep within 3 business days.
Angela looks forward to every photography session whether with new or returning clients! Please call or text her at 7138705690 for any questions or advice before a photography session.
