You can’t freeze time.

But you        slow down &                  the moment.



"They grow up so fast!"

This is something we often hear from clients, and we see with our own eyes as our clients return year after year and the kids are taller and taller. Sometimes, we hear our clients say they regret not taking maternity photos. We've also heard SO MANY parents say they wish they had their own professional senior portraits from that time in their life.

This is exactly why we do what we do. So for the rest of your days, you have something to look back on and instantly be taken to the most memorable times of your life.

We especially appreciate Brent's mastery of lighting.

"We have worked with Angela Clifton Photography several times since 2013. Everything from scheduling, the photo session to reviewing photos is easy and enjoyable. We especially appreciate Brent's mastery of lighting."

What a tremendous addition to our family photo gallery!

"This is the second time I've used Angela Clifton Photography for beach family photos and wouldn't use anyone else! Brent’s knowledge of photography comes through as he really captures the "feel" of family in the photos. What a tremendous addition to our family photo gallery!"

- Jessica Hernandez

Brent can make my kids hysterically laugh!

"A family photo session with Angela Clifton has become our Mother’s Day tradition. I think it’s such a fun Mother’s Day present because you get to experience something, but you also get something to take along with you. Plus, Brent can make my kids hysterically laugh!"

- Morgan Hyde

Our Approach:

what to expect during your session

Let’s be honest; you don’t want to spend your evening posing in front of the camera and feeling awkward. Instead, you want images that capture the connection you have with your partner, your kids' personalities, those little scrunchy-nose smiles and missing front teeth, and simply celebrate each new milestone in life.

This is where our experience and laid-back personalities come into play. Brent is an expert in naturally posing you highlighting your true personality and making you look fabulous while ensuring your little ones loosen up and feel comfortable. Trust us, after 30+ years and over 3,000 photo shoots, this is not our first rodeo and we have your back!

From the classic must-have smiling photos, to the relaxed images filled with laughter and fun, to the glowy, jaw-dropping shots; we promise to fill your gallery with the perfect mix of images celebrating this moment in your life.

How It Works

Before your session, we’ll nail down your dream location and share our Prep Guide. It will walk you through everything from choosing outfits to tips for getting the kiddos to cooperate. On the day of your shoot, take a breath and relax! Brent will art direct like a pro, so you’re never wondering how to stand to look your best or what to do with your hands.

Step 3: The Big Reveal

He was relaxed and funny and made us feel great. 

"They helped us with wardrobe, location choice, and dedicated themselves to details. When we arrived, Brent knew every family members name and recognized their faces and HAD NEVER MET THEM! During the shoot, we loved the addition of music he played to set the mood. Getting the little one’s attention was a very needed skill! Having all the kids and grandkids together in one picture is a priceless gift."

- Christine Kimball

What is our scheduling process? 

We prefer to discuss scheduling over the phone during your session consultation. We've found this ensures all of your questions are answered and there is no confusion. Once we have answered all of your questions and decided on a date and location, we'll email a proposal which includes helpful information about your session and your contract and session retainer invoice. 


As soon as possible, especially if you need a particular date or have limited availability. We schedule throughout the year, and we have a waitlist during our busy seasons. Sessions during the week are sometimes easier to schedule.

Frequently asked questions


The best time for your session depends on the time of year and location. We prefer to do park sessions in the morning or afternoon, usually avoiding midday. We prefer to do beach sessions towards the end of the day. Also, if young children will be included in the session, it is important to keep in mind the best time of day for them. During your consultation we'll determine the time that works best considering all of these factors and more.

Can we include our pets in our family photos?

Of course! Please feel free to bring your furry family members (pets) along. They are wonderful additions to family photo shoots, and they deserve their place in the family portrait.

Are you as excited as we are?

Whenever you’re ready to get started, we’ll hop on a call to talk about your vision for your photo session, and how we can capture - Moments that Last a Lifetime.
