BAY AREA FAMILY, Maternity & Newborn photography





about Me

hi there! I'm Xinlei!

I'm a Bay Area family photographer based in Pleasanton, CA. I’m married to my college sweetheart and I’m mama to three wild little humans and a rascally Yorkie who all keep me on my toes on the daily. When I’m not behind the camera, you’ll find me cheering my kids on at their soccer games, having a dance party in our living room to the sounds of BTS and BLACKPINK, exploring the outdoors with my family, or planning our next big family adventure! 

I have always been fascinated with the magic of cameras and the ability to hold onto a moment in time, permanently. For as long as I can remember, I've carried a camera with me everywhere I went. I've always been a nostalgic person, so the importance of photographs has never been lost on me. 

Now, as a Bay Area family photographer, I get to spend time capturing your family’s memories and love-filled moments. I'm here to help mama's like you plan and tailor the perfect photo session. My job is to give you tangible memories of this treasured time with your family and to make sure that YOU get to be in the frame. I want your family to have these images to hold onto and look back fondly on, for years to come. 
But enough about me! It’s your story I can’t wait to tell. Let’s make some magic together!

My Rolleiflex 2.8 is my go to camera for my personal photos!


part of my job

Witnessing your family's love for each other. And getting to watch your kids grow and change over the years! 

More than just a cookie-cutter family photography experience!

You want to tell your family's story with authentic imagery that showcases your love & connection with each other. You want more than a photography session full of a whole lot of posed cheesing at the camera. You want to feel beautiful and to feel seen. You want to have a stress-free experience that is fun and enjoyable for everyone in the family!
