Finalllyyyyyy…..The photographer you’ve been looking for.

Based in Kansas City.

Come as you are...

Bring me all the chaos. Your craziest toddler. Your sleepiest baby. Your tired-est partner. Your funniest selves. I want you and your crew exactly as is. I take your perfect chaos and help you remember it forever because what even is life if you can’t smile through the crazy?

It’s ya gurlllll....

I don’t care if I meet you on an airplane or at a session—I care about your story. I want to know where you’re from, why you’re here, and where you’re going. People are walking stories and I have yet to meet one I didn’t want to hear.


Wanna skip the small talk and get right to it?

People are picking up what I’m putting down. (AKA I’m taking photos and they are liking them.)

"If I could give 10 stars I would! I cannot recommend Angela enough. She loves what she does and it shows in her incredible work! We had both maternity and newborn sessions with her. I was feeling a bit self-conscious going into the maternity photos but she has a way of making everyone feel like the most beautiful humans that deserve to be celebrated and the photos turned out simply gorgeous. For the newborn photos, I was worried about dealing with a fussy baby or that spit up would happen or all the other baby things but in Angela’s presence, our little guy was a perfect angel. We’re so happy we had Angela to photograph this very momentous occasion in our lives. We look forward to working with her in the future to document our growing family!"

"Where to begin?!?! Well first off, Angela’s pictures are stunning -as I’m sure you have already seen from her website. BUT, where she also shines is in her contagious energy, smile, preparedness, and ability to make family photos FUN. I mean it. She has thought through every detail and makes the dreaded outfit decisions a breeze. You can tell she loves taking photos and wants you to love it too. Would highly highly recommend her to all your family, friends, or randos you meet on the street. Thank youuuu again!!!!"

"Just THE BEST! Angela is such a talented photographer and we had a great experience with her!
I had so many questions about outfits and she took all the stress out of planning family photos by sending me outfit inspo. We also borrowed from her client closet to make this process super easy!
Photo day was quick and I got every picture I could have wanted!
The greenhouse was super cute and I just couldn’t be happier with our photos!
We are now lifers!! We will never be able to go to another photographer after our perfect experience with Angela Slatten!"

"One of the many things that I love about Angela is how perfectly she captures our kiddos personalities. Not only will we cherish and love these photos forever, but we will have the opportunity to look back at the different phases of their lives, and see each of their personalities shine through. We have done a handful of sessions with Angela but this is the first time we utilize the client closet. I definitely wish that I would have done this sooner! Angela beautifully coordinated outfits for our family of five utilizing the client closet!"

"Angela was so incredibly amazing to work with for our maternity and newborn pictures. I found her through a google search and ended up booking because of all the great reviews she had, but wow I didn't know how lucky I was to find her! I've never worked with someone who obviously cares so deeply for their clients and puts in so much time and effort to make sure their experience is fantastic. For our maternity pictures, I sent Angela a picture of the dress I was going to wear and she immediately emailed me back with multiple outfit ideas (with links!) for my husband. For the newborn session we utilized her client closet for our outfits and as a new, sleep deprived mom it was the best decision we could have made. I didn't have to buy or plan out anything - I just decided which pieces I wanted to try from the client closet and Angela did the rest. She was always quick to respond to questions, eager to help plan outfits, and overall just truly cared about our experience and how we felt as her clients. Her pricing is incredibly fair for the time and effort she puts in for each session. I'm just so thankful to have found her - I'm a client for life!"
