I'm Angel Stroud and I am a professional newborn, child, and family photographer living in Kolin, Louisiana. I've been doing photography for almost 12 years. In August 2018, I ventured out and opened my studio and began specializing in newborn and studio photography. When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me spending time with my husband Josh and our two kiddos - Oakley and Maisyn! We love adventures and being outdoors. I'm coffee and plant obsessed. There’s never a dull moment in our house!
I graduated from Louisiana State University of Alexandria with a degree in Mass Communications. I've worked jobs ranging from television station, radio, to marketing and graphic design companies. In 2014 I decided to pursue photography as my full-time job.
WHY I LOVE BEING A PHOTOGRAPHER...
One of the biggest perks of being a newborn photographer is getting to work with tiny, innocent babies. Many people find newborns to be incredibly endearing, with their soft skin, chubby cheeks, and tiny fingers and toes. As a photographer, I have the opportunity to capture all of these sweet details and create stunning images that parents will treasure for years to come. In addition to the joy and memories that come with photography, there is also the challenge of capturing a child's personality in a single image. Children are often unpredictable and can be difficult to work with, but this challenge is part of what makes studio photography so rewarding. By creating a fun and relaxed environment, I'm able to capture the unique quirks and personalities of each child I work with, resulting in images that truly capture the essence of who they are.
WHY HIRE ME...
Friends and customers who have hired me describe me as kind, patient, courteous, laid back and most of all someone who genuinely cares about my clients. I have experience working with babies and children which has allowed me to develop skills to capture stunning images. I pay close attention to every aspect of the shoot, from the lighting and composition to the posing and expression, to ensure that each image is flawless. I make it a priority to communicate clearly and effectively with my clients throughout the entire process.
If you're looking for a photographer who is experienced, versatile, detail-oriented, communicative, and professional, then I believe I would be an excellent choice. I am passionate about my work and committed to delivering images that you will cherish for a lifetime.
