We had the good fortune of connecting with Angel Sanchez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Angel, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
I have had a love of photography since I was a little girl. I always want to capture the moment because you don’t know what the future holds especially with everything going on in the world right now. I do struggle with giving up or to keep reaching for my dreams. I love what I do as a side business. I am hoping to make it a full time career one day but for now I keep making memories for myself and everyone that I get in front of my camera.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have worked in Dermatology almost 17 years, I love my career in Dermatology but photography is my passion, my life. I feel I see things differently that most. I try to always find the positive in any situation. I have survived, a heart attack and 2 strokes plus 3 different types of cancer in my life. I continue to follow my dreams and build a life with my husband and children that they will be proud of. I am a fighter and continue to fight for myself and my family. I continue to grow my business slowly but surely. I love to use natural light and capture moments that some people might miss.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love to try different places for food, or hiking. I love The Wildlife World Zoo, one of my favorite places to visit. I love the work they do there with the animals. I love to be outside with nature it makes me at peace.


Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband Gabriel is my biggest supporter and fan. He is always pushing me to get out with my camera and caputure something. He has been an assistant to me, a driver, whatever I need he is there. I also have a small group of people who always strive me to be better and follow my dreams. I love each and every one of them very much.
