Meet Angela Burkard of Burkard Photography in El Cajon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Angela Burkard.

Angela, please share your story with us.
I am a local San Diego natural light photographer specializing in family photography and all that it entails-babies, children, and families.

A few things to know about me:

I work all over the greater San Diego area but live with my family in east county.

I’m most inspired by children, beautiful eyes and amazing golden sunlight.

Leaving my full-time job in design and photography inspired me to pursue my passion by starting my own photography business. Which I will be forever thankful for that blessing in disguise.

People always ask, “How did you get into this field?” I say, “That is simple. I combined ​two of my favorite things, family and photography.”

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I would say it has been a smooth and slow road. Time has been my main obstacle, as a full-time mom of two young children and a firefighter husband, I have not had countless hours to spend on marketing, advertising and business growth, so all of my growth has been though personal referrals and word of mouth.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Burkard Photography story. Tell us more about the business.
I am a natural light photographer specializing in families, children, and babies. I shoot mostly outdoors during the “golden hour’ with sun and fresh air. I would say I specialize in children, being able to connect with them, being able to bring out their personalities and their giggles. I love watching them grown up session after session. I find one of the best compliments, normally from the dads, is at the end of a session “WOW! That wasn’t too bad”

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Being laid off from my full-time job in design and photography inspired me to pursue my passion by starting my own photography business. Which I will be forever thankful for that blessing in disguise.

I have been lucky that each year in business has been better than the year before and more fun than the year before.
