Reviews About Angela


You can tell she has “the touch”…

Angela has an amazing skill at capturing the most perfect moments and expressions of little babies! You can tell she has “the touch”… Which she probably picked up from her experience as a NICU nurse. I’m writing this review almost 4 months after we had our session, and it’s incredible how much our daughter has already changed! I treasure the pictures that Angela photographed for us and would encourage all parents to invest in a newborn session!

We had a great maternity session with Angela.

**HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!** We had a great maternity session with Angela. She kept us moving; she knew exactly how she wanted to frame the pictures. She also helped us feel comfortable to be ourselves and the pictures turned out great! She gave us also such generous military discount. We were so happy to have found her, and I can't wait for our baby session!

We call her the baby whisperer she is so great with babies!

I have been a repeat client of Angela and just love her! We call her the baby whisperer she is so great with babies! My first experience was with my baby at only a few weeks old. I was so nervous and she just made me feel so comfortable and made the photography experience a memory for me and my family! We continue to go back to her because of the experience and talent she delivers! Angela catches such wonderful moments I will cherish forever! I have referred her to friends and definitely will continue to use her as long as I can!

Amazing. Incredible. Talented.

Amazing. Incredible. Talented. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with Angela with Angela McNaul Photography. She has an eye for what will be a cherished photograph forever. Her ability to capture my children and they’re spirited personalities speaks volumes of her talent. She’s been oh so patient with me and my 1,000 wardrobe questions too! I can not recommend her enough if you’re looking for someone to grab the sweetness of your family in a moment that you will love for a lifetime!

Angela is second to none…..

Angela is second to none. She loves her job and does so effortlessly! She’s very enthusiastic, patient and sweet. Her studio/office is very clean and oh I love her waiting area!! Our baby girl’s photos came out perfect! Don’t forget to grab a cup of coffee while she takes care of your little one. I would highly recommend her work!

Her patience is exceptional and the quality of her work is superior….

My family and I would highly recommend Angela to capture lifetime memories of your family. We had photos taken of our 1 week-old and 15-month old children and the photos turned out perfect. Angela is so warm and welcoming, which made the session very relaxed with 2 kids under 2 years-old. Her patience is exceptional and the quality of her work is superior. We will definitely have her take pictures of our family in the future.

It’s like being with family…..

Angela is absolutely amazing at what she does. She has a way of capturing the love and happiness your family has for each other like no one else! I have had the honor to work with her through all my pregnancies for 6 years now, and I'm so blessed to have those moments beautifully captured in time forever! I recommend her to everyone I meet and can honestly say you will love working with her! She's so loving with the babies and other children. She knows exactly what to do to quiet your newborn and entertain your others! It's like being with family!????

Angela is INCREDIBLE! Not only is her photography amazing but she is so easy to work with and so kind! She made us feel very comfortable shooting our maternity session and her creativity is unmatched! We are most definitely using her for a newborn session and I will recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding maternity/newborn photographer. I really just cannot say enough wonderful things about her!

She is an amazing photographer….

It's easy to look at Angela's work and tell that she is an amazing photographer, but what you are going to discover is that she is an amazing woman with the most kind, sympathetic heart. Angela made me feel gorgeous at 9 months pregnant. I am so thankful we chose her to join us on this special journey. I immediately felt like I was working with a close friend. I highly recommend Angela for any intimate moments you want to capture. I cannot wait for her to meet our little girl next!


With her background in NICU nursing she knew exactly what to do

Working with Angela for my daughters newborn photos and six month sunset pictures was such a dream. With her background in NICU nursing she knew exactly what to do to calm my little girl when she got fussy; was extremely patient and accommodated several breastfeeding breaks; and allowed me to bring a couple special props (my wedding dress seen below) to include in the session. For her six month photo shoot I was dying to do sunset pics even though I was slightly worried about a meltdown because it would be past my little girls bedtime, but Angela encouraged me to give it a shot. She had such a calming presence and was super efficient. As you can see by looking at one of the pictures below they turned out beautifully. At each new session with Angela I continue to be amazed by her talent. She has a real eye for photography while also being one of the most kind hearted people you will ever meet. I am already looking forward to our next session.

You will not find a better newborn photographer anywhere

I agonized over the cost of a newborn session for months before finally booking. It was the best investment that I could have made, and we received so many beautiful photos that we will cherish forever. Since our newborn session, we have seen Angela three more times for different sessions and just booked our newborn session for baby #2 due next month!
