Our journey as professional photographers started when we opened our first studio in Sonoma area in San Francisco back in 2005. Fresh out of Academy of Art University with master’s degree, our passion was on capturing one of the happiest moments in life! Throughout the 7 years after our first wedding shooting, we were bombarded with requests for baby photos from our existing clients. And we responded to the ardent demand by opening a beautiful baby studio in San Mateo – Sugar Baby Studio. For the past 7 years since its inception, we have had an honor of capturing images of God’s new creatures from the womb period onward. Working on some 2,400 maternity, newborn, baby and family photos, we wonder how each image is so unique and adorable. Each image is filled with a little story to tell. Every moment showcases the innate wonder, joy and excitement of infants. We love our profession as we can present these precious images for our clients to cherish for the rest of their lives.
