About Me

Goodhart Painted 650

Welcome and thank you for visiting!  My name is Angela Goodhart, and I am an award winning northern Virginia photographer who specializes in vibrant and creative portraits of your family, your high school seniors, and your love stories. I established my business in 2009 to share my love of portraiture with families who want to remember their journey with photographic art.

Why am I am northern Virginia Photographer?

I believe that the extraordinary is all around us, and within us.
I believe you can see the world in a grain of sand.
I believe the true voyage of discovery is not found in new landscapes, but in seeing with new eyes.

What do I mean by that? That the ordinary is truly extraordinary. You, and your family, are a miracle of fate and serendipity. I am privileged and delighted to create meaningful and artistic portraits of your family.

Who Am I?

I am someone who thinks that the world is an interesting place, and believes most people are fundamentally good. I try to appreciate the little things, because I think little joys add up!
