Author & Attorney Angella – NJ Portrait Photographer

Angella is an attorney, author, and speaker, and she reached out to us back in early October of last year about scheduling a portrait session.  She was readying her first book for release and wanted us to photograph her for the cover image.  We were super excited she contacted us!

For sessions like this, it’s really important to get to know your subject a bit and understand exactly what they are looking for.  We really like to do a thorough consultation to make sure we ask the right questions, so that we could provide her with the best guidance possible to prepare for her session.  Through exchanging some emails and speaking a bit, we were able to find out what type of images Angella wanted to create and how she wanted to portray herself on the cover.  It was also great to see a sample layout for the cover to give us an idea how she had envisioned things coming together.

The book release, originally planned for sometime in late 2015, was being pushed back until early 2016, which gave us some flexibility in scheduling the session.  Ultimately, we were able to schedule something in mid-November, even in the midst of the craziness of our Fall and Holiday sessions! (FYI… you can read more about these on our sister site, S18 Newborns.)

In the end, everything came together really great!  In addition to being very accomplished, Angella was truly one of the nicest people we’ve had the pleasure to work with, and we’re now glad to call her a friend!  She visited our studio with her cousin, and we really enjoyed working together.  Just getting to know her a bit made me excited to read the book, and it was nice to se the whole project come together for her!  Her graphic designer did a terrific job as well, and you can check out some more of their work on their website.

Book Release

Angella’s book, Life Lessons I Learned in Law School, will be released on February 2, 2016 on & the Amazon Kindle.  You can find out more information on Angella, the publication, and book-signing dates on her website.  Below are some of the images from the session, as well as the cover graphic from the book release!
