About Me

My name is Angelina Norris. I am the Lead Portrait Photographer and Creative Director of The Rustie Nail Creative Studio. The Rustie Nail is located in North Texas though our roots are deep in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania. This studio primarily focuses in natural light Lifestyle and Portrait Photography. If you are looking for a fun and charismatic creative who can capture your family's next big moment, you have found the right girl. My niche is primarily focused in documenting family + children, couples, motherhood and milestones..

I am a wife to a good ole southern boy who stole my heart at 21, Mama to a precious baby girl and a handsome baby boy and I make it a point to dabble in a little bit of everything that peaks my interest. I have held jobs as a floral assistant, a lab technician at a Cancer Center, an event planner, a manager at a high end restaurant, a bartender and I have done my fair share of traveling the world. (True story, my husband and I would love to live out our days visiting all the National Parks in the United States and our Blog is chalk full of Travel Guides from all over the world.) I enjoy kayaking, true crime podcasts, Game of Thrones and Schitts Creek reruns and I seriously love Christmas time more than any other time!

I started this studio over 8 years ago, and with a little bit of grace and whole lot of hustle, I've managed to make a name for myself in both Pennsylvania and Texas. I cannot begin to tell you much joy it brings me to capture both of these unique backdrops. I truly believe that being raised in southwestern PA has influenced my love for photography. Growing up in a place that was designed for outdoor activities, I developed a love for nature. I grew up surrounded by farms, foothills and fall foliage! Now that I live in the metroplex, I find myself becoming nostalgic for the beauty that lies just outside the concrete jungle. Dallas-Fort Worth has instilled a challenge in my heart. I yearn for the opportunity to find those untapped backdrops and I find myself becoming overjoyed when a client feels comfortable enough to ask me to document the area that they find beautiful, the place that they feel home.

I treat each session with an individualized style so that each and every session is catered to be a unique depiction of you and yours! I strive to provide raw, real and most of all, timeless documentation.

Y'all/Yinz, I am simply a storyteller who is so in love with documenting your moments, both big and small!
