I'm Angie, the creative artist and photographer behind Bella Marie Styled Photography, LLC. The photo below is my two girls and I for a Spring Mommy & Me Session taken by the talented Fotoplicity. It was the first time in a long time that I was on the other side of the camera with my girls, and wow did it feel good!
Of course I had a closet full of beautiful gowns for my girls and for my clients, so choosing one for me was not hard. I found one from one of my favorite dress designers Anna Triant Couture. All three of our dresses were handmade by her. I am so inspired by other creatives and designers and it is such an important part of my photography work.
Isn't that the hardest part of planning a photo shoot? Finding and coordinating clothing for your family?!
Meet my family. My husband is a retired Fire Marshall with the FDNY. My children are growing so fast, two teenagers and the baby is 10! She will always be my baby! You may often see my girls model for me. They are my muse! Photo cred: Holly Lund Imagery
So this year, May 2023, my husband and I and our three children moved to the Charleston area in South Carolina. My husband had always wanted to move South once he retired, so here we are. We fell in love with the Summerville/Goose Creek area and after many months of looking, we found a lovely home in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Bonus- lots of bike trails for us to ride!
We absolutely love it! We have found a wonderful church in Moncks Corner where we feel at home and the kids have had a blast enjoying Summer and meeting new friends. Packing up my home studio was the hardest part.... I have a huge collection of backdrops, dresses, outfits, hair accessories, etc. Most all came with me!

I am so excited to bring my Stylized Studio to the Lowcountry for your children! I have been photographing babies and children for the past 8 years. I specialize in the 6-7 month Sitter Session, First Birthday & Cake Smash as well as little girl magical princess or fine art sessions. Moms drawn to the vintage vibe will love my suspender sets and bow ties for the little boys as well as vintage props and toys. I love to create beautiful sets for my clients and the props, gowns and vintage finds are a huge part of that.
I am a Nikon Girl. Always have been. I currently have way to many lenses, but my favorites are the 135mm for outdoors and 85mm or 24-70mm for in the studio,
More Blogs to come... I will showcase my work as well as offer tips for photographing children and behind the scenes! I also can't wait to showcase my new studio space here in the Lowcountry.
I am on most all of the socials and I also have an email list. Sign up for email and I promise I won't spam you! I am planning for Holiday Sessions soon and my announcements will go to my email list first.
