Angela Bagley - Juggling Boudoir With Your Full Time Career

February 10, 2020

In this episode of The Mike Cassidy Photography Podcast we meet long time boudoir and portrait photographer Angela Bagley of After Dark Boudoir.

In her own words...

"I started with a genuine love for photographs, old black and whites I would find at my grandma’s etc but my kids sparked the love for making photographs and the lack of skilled local photographers were showing in the products I was paying good money for!! I bought my first “Good” camera in 2007 when I graduated nursing school and that's where it all began.."

In addition to her boudoir photography business, she also has a full time nursing career.  This episode covers a lot of ground from Angela's beginnings shooting school portraits to her transition to her real passion of boudoir-- all the while taking steps to manage her career along side her passion of photography.
