Before I get into all of the details about myself, I'll start by telling you my name. I think that's a good place to start, ya know? My name is Angela Quick and I am a happily married mother of four. Two boys, two girls. Ages 23, 18, 16 & 15. They represent the best parts of me and I am their biggest fan. You will oftentimes get to know me (and even my partner-in-crime, husband and BFF, Robert) throughout our time together, as my main goal is to create a relationship with my clients as I continue to tell your story year after year.
I'm not just a mom and wife, though! I'm a lover of all things Marvel© and GASP! A dedicated player of World of Warcraft©! Before you laugh hysterically at my adult addictions, let me first say that I began playing with my autistic (Aspergers) son back in 2009. He began to really love the game and it seemed to help him, which, being a "go play outside," kind of mom, I didn't get. What I soon figured out was he didn't have to read social cues in the game as all communication is done through chat. It became a great stress relief for him and he felt connected to other people. So, in order to connect with him... I got on his level, I began to play. I found a treasure trove of the most awesome individuals who wanted to support my son as he progressed in-game. The rest is history. My boy is now 16 we are STILL connected with those same people in-game and in real life. Since I founded ARQ Studios (formerly Studios Masters) in 2012, I've photographed hundreds of happy faces all across the Mid-West, tons of food (which I love), car shows (my guilty pleasure) and even some commercial real estate here and there. I am continually acknowledged for my hard work and creativity by my clients who book repeat sessions year after year.
