Photographing Babies and Children with an Emphasis on Sales and Marketing
Angela Lynn Pencsak

Master Photographer Angela Lynn Pencsak has been San Antonio's Photographer of the Year for 3 years in a row! She also serves as President of the San Antonio Professional Photographers.

As a child, Pencsak shot film, and was eventually a yearbook staff photographer in high school. As an adult, she became a district manager for Sears Portrait Studios, which was where she developed her passion for photographing children. “It didn’t teach me much about photography, but it taught me everything about managing a studio and customer service,” she says.

She then went to college for business and not photography which she says was “a very smart decision.” Her business skills primed her to run the retail studio she currently has, Angela Lynn Portraits, complete with staff. She also credits joining Professional Photographers of America and attending every convention and seminar she could. “Even though I have a background in photography, I never stop learning,” she says. “I just continue my education.”

All that learning continues to pay off. The first time Pencsak entered an international competition, she recieved four merits out of four, which won her Photographer of the Year from PPA. She also attained the rank of Master Photographer from PPA.

Pencsak’s studio specializes in maternity and newborn photography. Estimating that 90 percent of her work falls into those two groups, she takes other assignments as varied as photographing beauty pageant contestants and volunteering with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, the Down Syndrome Association, and The Heart Gallery.

Meeting Location: 
The Black Labrador


The Black Labrador opened in 1986 in a building formerly used by a church for its officers. It has 100 seats inside, 50 outside and 20 around the bar. The low ceilings and decorations gives the restaurant an authentic pub atmosphere unlike any in Houston.The menu is varied with great hamburgers, soups and salads but it is the English specials like Shepherd’s Pie, Fish and Chips and Raspberry Trifle that bring customers back time and again. The Black Labrador is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner and serves brunch on Sundays starting at 11 am
