Ever since I was a teenager, I have always enjoyed taking pictures with the camera my dad passed onto me, capturing the things, people and places around me. In 2007, I decided to turn this passion of mine into my career. Since then I have been shooting weddings, engagements, special events, family, kids and babies. I love telling stories with my camera, and my pictures demonstrated my characteristic style and unique perspective, simple yet elegant. I take great pride to apply my skills and talent to document the important and precious moments of life of my clients into lasting fine art pictures. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to capture these memories for my clients so they can cherish a lifetime.

Hi! I am Tanushree. My desire to work with different people and help showcase their best version of themselves took me from being a commerce graduate to becoming a professional hair artist, a wedding and portrait photographer as well as a graphic designer. Shooting weddings has been an incredible journey since I first started in 2012. It has taken me to over 14 countries across the world and I’ve been lucky to witness so many beautiful stories firsthand. My wedding clients eventually transitioned to maternity and family sessions organically. I realised I love documenting love in all shapes and forms. :)
My name is David Enloe and I have been serving clients for over 10 years. What’s my superpower? I naturally mirror the energy of the kids around me.

My family photography packages range from 1 hour lifestyle photo sessions to multi-day adventure documentary experiences.
Photography is art and everything single photo is precious memories of customers. I give every image love, care, and time to handcraft pieces that my customers will cherish forever. I earned my postgraduate certificate from the Central Academy of Fine Arts on Photography in 2012. With more than nine years of experience in professional photography in Beijing and the Bay area, I dedicate my photography career to capturing lovely and decisive moments for my customers. I believe the key to taking a fantastic photo is the artistic vision with aesthetics.
As a huge travel bug, Iris started her photography journey capturing the people and places she encounters during her travels and loved telling stories with her photos. Being a photographer wasn't something Iris always thought she would do, but becoming a mama changes things. When Iris welcomed her daughter to this world, Iris realized that time goes by much faster than what she's prepared for. Kids simply grow up too fast! Taking photos of those toothless smiles, chunky cheeks and tiny hands and toes help to savor those gone-in-a-flash moments that are truly special to us -- and I look forward to capturing those special memories for your family! Inspired by Susan's PanAmerica trip, Iris and her husband took a year long journey traveling around the world.

I fell in love with photography as a teenager. After I had my first child. I wanted to catch every moment, every smile, every milestone. Today, when I look back at photographs of my children, memories come flooding back. The photograph of my daughter standing on a chair makes me remember how she loved to climb, on everything! The photo of my son in a miniature chef’s hat and apron reminds me of when he was 3 and wanted to be a chef. He made up recipes for me, like asparagus cookies! I’m passionate that everyone has a story and everyone deserves to have their story documented. I want to capture real, authentic moments that tell your story, so you can look back and remember those moments as if they happened yesterday. It doesn’t matter where you are in your story, capturing the connection between you and those you love is my goal. Whether you are a young couple in love, awaiting the birth of your little one, or a family with teenagers, your love and connection should be captured. When you book a session with me, there won’t be fake smiles and lots of “say cheese” moments. I’m a visual storyteller and your story will be filled with laughter and fun. I’m not the right photographer for everyone, but if this sounds like the type of session you are looking for, then I’m the right photographer for you. Let’s get started telling your story!
The story of my life with a camera started when I was 11, and without knowing it, I have had a camera at my side since that day 24 years ago. But my journey of photographing human connection started 9 years ago after I gave birth to my daughter. Feeling like time was moving too fast, my lens turned to the tiny human in my lap. Her newborn toes and baby rolls were quickly transforming into a fast and toothy toddler... I wanted to remember it all. Each tiny finger. Every curl on the back of her neck. How we touched noses for comfort. Or the first garden we planted together. As a child, I loved flipping through old picture boxes and hoarding my favorites. I asked about what I saw in the pictures and my parents recalled vacations, holidays, stories of drawing on the walls with permanent markers, birthdays, or trips to the park to feed the ducks. The pictures became a way for us to remember. To tell stories. Photography is my way of storytelling, and when I look at a photograph, I FEEL the moment, and my head and heart rejoice in the memory. With my lens, I capture the everyday details that make up my life, those moments that become my cherished memories.
My name is Chunlei Deng. I am a mom and a family photographer based in the Bay Area, California. After my daughter was born, I became a family history keeper behind the camera. To improve my shooting skills and to make up for my regret that I did not major in art, I started a professional photography course in college and finally got a professional photographer certificate. During my study, one of the most impressive projects was "Good Morning, " a series in black and white of my daughter. “Good Morning” was the first time I was more concerned with conveying to the audience the emotion and connection to my four-year-old daughter’s struggles and playfulness in the morning than the perfection of the photo. After completing this project, I set my style on documentary photography and lifestyle photography, trying to document extraordinary life most naturally. It is also the original intention of my photography studio because I wanted to narrate more stories for more families through my lens. My photography style is storytelling, emotive and timeless. I offer maternity, newborn, and family lifestyle sessions, you can choose the location, and it also could be your home. My workflow is without stress, giving minimum direction, and making my client naturally present in front of the lens. I also offer fine art portrait photography. I will capture timeless, authentic, and emotive portraits through communication with you.
