Day 5 – 12 Days of Giving / The Studio by Angi – San Jose & SF Bay Area Family Photographer

I’d like to start off by telling you how wonderful the staff at The Studio by Angi is! At every one of my visits there has been someone who greeted me with a smile at the door AND actually assisted me with what I was looking for. It’s like having a personal shopper! Yesterday I witnessed a handful of their staff helping a family in need. They opened their {Hearts} by offering free services and many other items for their home, one such item being a sofa, and the family walked out with a bag full of salon goodies! It really touched my heart and last year a couple of staff members rearranged their schedule to help me out with hair and make-up by offering their services for free with the Help Portrait campaign. It’s always a great shopping experience for me and because they carry so many items such as jewelry, handbags, home decor, sweaters and jackets, I can guarantee you will walk out with an armful of gifts. This holiday season, visiting The Studio by Angi is a must for your hair and make-up service, skin care, gifts for the holidays or if you need help with styling ideas because the staff will be there for you with awesome good old fashioned customer service with a smile. 🙂
