Building The Picture Perfect Business with Angela Acosta
Angela Acosta is a girl’s girl and quite literally the picture of passion. As the founder of Angela’s Atelier, a personal branding and portrait photography studio in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, she is committed to helping women shape how they feel about themselves. Her mission? To provide a studio experience focusing on the journey, not perfection or self-judgment. In today’s episode, we sit down with Angela Acosta to further unpack her journey to find what she feels is her true calling. She shares with us how she creates a safe space for every woman that she photographs, why everyone should have a portfolio of photographs at their disposal, her secret to bringing her clients out of their shells, how she overcame her initial fear of putting herself out there and so much more!
We talk about:
- Professional Photography
- Personal Branding
- Leaning into social media
- Finding your niche
- Empowering women
- Self-discovery + self acceptance
- Overcoming the fear of being seen
“I wanted to do something bolder, I’ve always wanted to empower women. I just didn’t know how. And I told myself for a long time. I’m just shy. And I don’t know that I could actually step into that role, or anything like that. That wasn’t the case.”
