picture of me


Margaret Albaugh

I am a photographer, advocate, mother, and partner to my loving and kind husband. I focus on personal projects, documentary work, family work, visual poems and environmental portraits. My personal projects focus on cultural identity, gender, and exploring the nuance of human nature. I find the full spectrum of human emotion to be inspiring and I try to capture it with my photography. 

Curriculum Vitae


Margaret’s client work is about reframing the narrative of parenting in real life by showing real life is beautiful.

Her personal work is informed by social issues, primarily identity, race, and gender norms. She is inspired by topics that scratch at contentious or thought-provoking issues and is intrigued by the nuances of human nature and the internal workings of individuals. She often marries her background in psychology with photography.
