SCROLL TO BEGIN
"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still." - Dorothea Lange
My mission is to help you document these precious days and to capture images that your family will cherish for years to come.
"Xinlei is the only photographer we go to for family photos, despite the fact we moved out of the Bay Area a little while back. I can't imagine going to anyone else! She has documented the growth of our little family — through pregnancy, infancy and early siblinghood of our children — and I can't wait until our next session. Seriously, such an amazing experience with absolutely priceless results!"
"Xinlei makes the entire process stress-free and easy. She is a true professional and such a sweet kind genuine soul. She has a magic way of engaging children and getting them to smile and pose. Thank you, Xinlei for capturing our family over the years. It is an absolute pleasure working with you each year."
"As a mom, I'm always the one taking photos of my family so this experience with Xinlei was just priceless. From the moment we arrived, she engaged with my children and was able to get the most incredible photos. I can't praise her enough for making this a fun, family experience that ended with beautiful family photos."
behind the lens
Trust me, as a mama to three little ones, I know what it's like to be swept up in the throes of parenthood while juggling all the things life throws at you! I also know it can be daunting to think about planning a photography session for your family in the midst of all the chaos of daily life. That’s why I’d like to invite you into something special — because who said family photography has to be a stressful and exhausting experience? I am here to guide you through every step of the way and my goal is to make this a fun experience for the whole family.
Based in Pleasanton, but ready to travel, I can’t wait to meet you and your family and document the unrepeatable moments that make life so worth life so remarkable.
