Alameda Styled Shoot | Tea Party of 5


This Alameda styled shoot made all my boy mom dreams come true in a way I’ll never get to experience with having only boys.  Flower crowns, bouquets, cupcakes, and 5 of the most adorable, sweetest little girls.  Did I mention there are twins in the mix and the cutest 2 month old baby??  You can […]

Alameda Newborn Photography | Kang family


Alameda newborn photography is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! Take my favorite city in the world, (which I just happen to live in) the gorgeous families who also live here and of course precious newborn babies and you have the perfect combo.
