Angela Bilen is a sensitive soul with a drive to keep people smiling while capturing moments that last a life time.
After Angela graduated from law school and passed the Michigan State Bar in 2004, she began a life as an attorney and soon after, a mother. During it all, Angela always had a trusty camera with her. Angela's passion in photography persisted and she bought her first "big girl camera". For her birthday, her husband enrolled her into a photography class at Macomb Community College, and from there the learning, practicing and improving has never stopped. Dial forward to 2010, Angela realized her passion was in capturing beautiful images of both her children and others. As she teamed up with Jen Dera, she embarked upon a fulfilling journey that has allowed her to enjoy her time both with the people she loves and the clients that turn to friends in just one session.
As Co-founder of Capture A Moment Photography, you will often find Angela making fast friends with the youngest family member, or finding ways to help their clients feel more at ease in front of the camera. Angela's goal is make the entire experience as stress free as possible and excellent customer service is icing on the cake. Angela truly enjoys photographing children, families and especially loves photographing newborns.
When Angela is not behind the camera, Angela continues to practice law, specializing in Estate Planning. For fun, Angela enjoys working in her garden and landscaping but is most often found spending time with her loving husband (and middle school sweetheart) of almost 19 years and/or finding things to do with her 3 beautiful children, Jonathan (12), Andrew (10), and Evelyn (5).
