Get to know Angela McNaul
Many call her the baby whisperer…..
“You are here because you felt a connection with my work and style. You may have been referred to me by a friend or family member. Maybe you saw my work on Instagram or Facebook. Whatever the reason, you liked what you saw and want to learn more, and I am excited at the possibility of working with you and your family” XO Angela
It is a hard decision isn’t it? Deciding who to trust with your precious newborn baby. You want to feel comfortable with someone handling one of the most important people in your world. You want to be relaxed when you place your heart in someone else hands.
As a mom, Angela understands completely what you are feeling.
Her job is making sure you are comfortable; your baby is comfortable and that you feel like you made the best decision in hiring me. Her experience as a nicu nurse ensures that she handles your baby in the safest way possible.
Let’s design, create and photograph your memories together.
Angela’s photography style is often described as rich and dreamy. She has a talent for capturing the sweet innocence and vulnerability of newborns in her images.
Many of her clients have commented on how she seems to have a special connection with their babies, earning her the nickname “baby whisperer.”
Angela is a featured artist at Martha Jefferson Hospital in their labor and delivery department and was voted in the TOP 3 of Charlottesville 2023 Photographer of the Year
Angela is trained in swaddling techniques and has a wealth of knowledge about infant behavior and development, which helps her to create a calm and comfortable environment for the babies she photographs.
Not only does Angela photograph newborn babies, but she also specializes in maternity photography and babies all the way up to toddlers. In the fall and spring, Angela opens her schedule for family portraits as well.
Angela has 2 kids & has been married to her husband for 23 years. Her home is 1 mile from her studio in Crozet and loves the idea of connecting with her local community.
What she does when NOT snuggling YOUR babies:
Training and running races, traveling to warm places, listening to true crime podcasts, binge watching reality television, camping, gardening and someday retiring and owning chicken and goats.
Things that Angela does NOT love that most people find strange:
Chocolate chips in any baked goods, waking up early in the morning, yoga- rather do laundry or grocery shop then sit still and breath.
