THE STORY OF ANGEL STUDIO

I am an Actor who also has a marketing degree and over 20 years experience as a makeup artist. So when I had some strange and not effective personal headshot sessions while living in Los Angeles as an Actor, I really was frustrated about it! That frustration turned into passion and wanting to help other actors, entrepreneurs and business owners get photos that would get them more work! I am so happy I passionately stumbled into shooting photography because I love helping people to capture who they are, what they do, and to help them get even more work! Wahoo!

WHY YOU SHOULD SHOOT WITH ME

What sets me apart from other photographers is my experience and obsession with analyzing industry headshots, makeup and wardrobe, and the fact that I’m a not only a Photographer, but an Actor/Artist and a Makeup Artist with a Marketing Degree and a helpful & fun personality. Importantly, I get the photo thing. I get that you need standout- awesome photos– but how to get them is the key! The key to a successful shoot is to have a great shoot plan, and to shoot with someone who takes the time to understand YOU, what you do, who you are, what your goals are; someone like me who honestly takes the time to learn about you. And the next reason to shoot with me is because it will be fun and I’ll take the stress out for you! I understand shoots and dynamics that can take away from your shoot. I stress having fun, being balanced, being YOU, embracing your inner uniqueness and bringing yourself to your photos. I love to get to know your goals and about you first through our chats, emails and your preferable way of correspondence– and then I go ahead and make a great shoot plan for you! I can recommend looks and colors for you, too if you want suggestions and shoot prep help. But regardless, when we get to the shoot, we will have fun while taking photos together. I look forward to getting to know you and getting you some amazing new headshots! Contact me for a consult, to inquire, or book your session directly with my online booking calendar.

ABOUT ME

As an actor living in Los Angeles, I quickly found out the importance of the headshot, and it took me a long time to get a headshot that worked. I discovered major frustration of having a few “not so effective and not too cheap sessions” myself, which didn’t get me a great headshot that gave me more mometum or captured me well. How frustrating! But, it has turned into my PASSION of helping people to get wonderful, striking shots that show their vibe, & that can help open doors! I truly care deeply about this and enjoy it, so it sets me apart as a photographer. In addition, I am a makeup artist of over 20 years and also provide makeup services. I am obsessed with clean, striking actor headshot makeup, beauty makeup, & natural makeup (hence I get hired often for the clean commercial look on commercials).

HOW MY HEADSHOT PHOTOGRAPHY PROCESS GOES & HOW PHOTO SESSIONS WORK

I’d love to help you! Contact me for a consult or go ahead and use the calendar to book now. We will chat and get on the same page about what you need in your shots, and what you are using the pics for. Next, I will make you a shoot plan after speaking with you. We will capture your vibe in different wardrobe and tones to best market you for what you are doing, or even better, for what you WANT TO DO. It’s as simple as that. No more overthinking. I’ll handle it for you from clothing recommendations to the way I shoot you. If you have scheduled a shoot and have not yet spoken with me, or sent me photos through my contact form, no problem! I will contact you to follow up about setting up a consultation and getting some photos from you that you currently use, and then we will discuss your shoot. I’ll ask you a few questions about your needs and about yourself through email and/or phone, and I will make some recommendations to customize your shoot to best meet your needs.
