Using my talent as a photographer to shape the way
women feel about themselves. 

I'm angela.

I'm Angela Acosta. After a decade of photographing other genres, I finally found my true calling in portraits and personal branding. I'm passionate about helping women look and feel their best, so I created Angela Atelier. My mission is to provide a studio experience that focuses on the journey, not perfection or self-judgment.

I help women change how they see themselves through photography and improve their lives. 


In my past life, I worked as an analyst for a global company, so project management and organization is my super power. 

My first for-real job right out of high school was as a bank teller, which strangely didn't require money or adult skills. That career lasted a hot minute and did "wonders" for my teenage self-esteem. Once they found out that I sucked, that was the end. From there, it was a chameleon jump into any paying job. Eventually, I found focus and grounding (you know bills).  I got a corporate job and completed my bachelor's degree at night.  

I host a podcast called 'Diana Prince Livest Next Door' show on Spotify, where I dish out hot topics for women with other business owners.

“Connection is why we're here. We are hardwired to connect with others, it's what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it there is suffering.”
