Hello!! Come on in and get to know me...

Good morning!!

For those of you that do not already know me, my name is Angie and I live among the farmlands in Northern Pickaway County, Ohio. I moved here from Columbus when I was just a little girl and I can't imagine living a life not surrounded by corn fields and cows. When they say life is better in the country, they mean it. I am married and I have two amazing children along with my little furbaby, Ellie Bellie. I work at a local library and when I am not surrounded by books, I run and do a little thing called photography. I'm not a professional runner, by any means. It started out as a way to stay fit and ended up being a lifestyle. I somehow managed to complete the Columbus Marathon. Even I impressed myself with that one. Haha!

Growing up, my mom was always behind a camera and I guess you could say I inherited my love of the craft from her. Through the years, I have been our family photographer and have taken my camera along with me to countless family functions. Now that my children are getting older, I decided it was time for me to follow my dreams and turn my passion into a business. When I was trying to settle on a name, I didn't want to go with the norm and use my name with the word photography after it. I wanted something that was unique to me, and my family. As a way to carry on the legacy of my parents, especially my mom, I decided to go with Eden Photography. It encompasses my love of nature photography and my love of human photography.

For each of my clients, I try to tailor their sessions to them. I don't want their photos to reflect my version of them; I want their photos to show who they really are. To forever memorialize their passion, their spirit, and their energy. I want to get to know them; their hobbies, their likes, and their passions. I want their true, beautiful, amazing self to shine through in each and every single photo of them. I want to laugh with them and to cry with them. I want them to become a part of my circle and I want to become a part of their circle. For me, photography is not just about the is about honoring the bonds humans have. With each other, with themselves, with their families, their partners, their friends, and even their pets. It's about capturing those special moments that will last a lifetime and it is about revealing what is unique about each and every single one of us.

I would love it if something you have read resonated with you and made you feel a little bit more comfortable about reaching out to a total stranger and inviting them to photograph your world and those you hold dear. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me and my passion for the craft of photography and thank you for following along with me on this amazing new journey.

Love to all, Angie
