Sought after clients worldwide, her motto is: “Have camera will travel. No destination too far!”
Why did you get into photography?
Photography found me at the tender age of 8 when I heard the shutter click for the very first time in my pocket 110 camera. I couldn’t wait to get the film back and see what the final product was. Right then and there, I knew this was something special. (I still have that first photo of my sister.) I created the highschool yearbook for the four years I attended highschool. If you needed to find me, I was usually found in the highschool the darkroom after class til midnight – daily.
Tell us a bit about your company.
My first website (I have three) www.angelahubbard.com started in 1996 – back in the day of film. I was photographing celebrities and rock ‘n’ roll stars working primarily for Rolling Stone Magazine, but being a freelancer, my work also appeared in many of the world’s foremost publications like Vanity Fair, Spin, People, Us Weekly, and Chart and featuring rock ‘n’ roll bands as No Doubt, David Bowie, KISS, the Offspring, Foo Fighters and Duran Duran. As well, had two gallery shows @ MTV in NYC.
Beyond Bellies was created from love. Beyond Bellies became because my magical wedding couples, who after their “big day,” decided to expand their family with a new addition to their family. I was blessed to be invited back to document this by a maternity photoshoot, followed by the child’s three-month, six-month, nine-month and one-year lifespan. How lucky am I to share in such beauty?!
How would you characterize your style of photography?
My style is very relaxed and natural. I love the outdoor feel and natural light. I crate both in studio and outside. Every photoshoot is different. I try not to repeat myself or my locations. Give you a unique shoot, with the same Beyond Bellies style.
Who are your clients?
Engaged couples getting married Vancouver and couples who chooose to have destination weddings. I feel so blessed that after I document the wedding, there is a 96% chance that they will call me to document their expanding family, as most times, my client and I remain close friends.
What should your mom clients expect when working with you?
Fun, artistic imagery, and beautiful portraits of your loved ones.
