I am Nicole Angelo Stafford, a senior portrait photographer based in San Francisco, CA. This California girl grew up in a suburb near Los Angeles before moving down the coast to San Diego for college. My major at the University of San Diego was elementary education, and it was while teaching Kindergarten in 2008 that my love of photography truly began. I bought my first professional camera to take photos of the sweet students in my class and absolutely fell in love with portraits. I officially started my business in 2009 while still teaching, focusing mostly on weddings and families. I soon realized that my true passion was working with high school and college seniors. I love being a part of the excitement of senior year and forming lifelong friendships with my seniors!

Fast forward to 2013, I married the love of my life, Silas, and we moved together to San Francisco. We had a son, Solomon, in 2017. Exploring Northern California has been such an adventure! I love discovering new places and traveling the world with my husband, but also sitting on the beach and soaking up the sun with my dog.

I feel so blessed to be a part of this important time of your life and share in your smiles, excitement, and laughter!
