Photography by Angela McConnell | Contemporary Portrait Photographer Vancouver
My passion is photographing contemporary portraits. I want to capture the essence of who you are, and what is really important to you. Stop being unhappy with yourself. You are beautiful. Stop wishing you looked like someone else or wishing people like you as much as they like someone else.
If you have been following along for a while, you are probably aware that each year just before my birthday, I shoot a new set of self portraits. This year I got to shoot them in the new co-op studio I just moved into on Columbia and 3rd – stupidly close to some craft breweries … More Birthday self portraits 2018
This year for my birthday portraits, I decided to buck my regular trend and actually wear colour for once! I still had to revert to wearing some black for comforts sake.

I am not always the most social butterfly, or like being vulnerable in front of people I don’t know … More Why I chose portrait photography
This was our first full year in Vancouver, we still haven’t acclimated to the winter weather and I am constantly amazed that I don’t really need a full winter coat or socks on a regular basis – Geoff is testing to see if he can wear shorts the entire winter season.

In early November I partnered with Get Fired Up Retreats – a fitness and life coaching combo which are offered as half day, full day or 3 day options.
