But, motherhood is hard!
You're trying to balance work and family life.
You're in survival mode trying to meet deadlines at work while also being present in your babies' lives.
The last time you had photos done, it was a stressful ordeal. And, you can't imagine adding anything else to your to-do list.
But you know that you will regret not taking photos with your kids as they grow.
You want beautiful photos but your plate is full.
When I was a kid, I would look through family albums and think "I wonder how mom and dad were as kids and how their wedding day was."
I'm first generation Vietnamese- American. I know that photos were hard to come by in Vietnam.
BUT we do have ONE photo of my dad. It's a 2x2, faded studio portrait of him in military clothing when he was 14.
I love this photo.
I love how innocent he was.
I love that he was naive.
He had no clue that he would eventually embark on a month long journey at sea to leave Vietnam on a homemade boat, in search of the great American dream.
My dad didn't know that he would leave the only home he ever knew for a place where he didn't know the language. He didn't know that he would raise 5 kids in a foreign country. My dad was just being a teenager, posing for the photo because his parents made him.
why i do what
And this, this is why I do what I do. For the memories, the nostalgia, and the story.
I am here to help capture your story.
To help show your future generations what their lives are built upon.
To capture the love and life that is part of their foundation.
So make memories and let me document your life.
I promise that I will take photos that your children will look back on and appreciate.
I am thankful to have this one photo.
It humbles me and reminds me of where I came from.
I know how amazing JUST ONE photo can be.
I know what one photo can represent and how one photo can make you feel.
As a photographer, I know how important pictures are.
When I photograph you as a pregnant woman, I know that I am capturing the beginning of another story; the first chapter in a new book.
The following year, when I capture you with your baby, who is barely able to stand, I'll admire how great motherhood looks on you.
When your baby girl is 5 years old, I'll giggle at how unstoppable she has become.
At 18, I'll capture you and your daughter. I'll smile at how much your daughter is starting to resemble you- both in looks and personality.
Later, I'll see your daughter start her career, get married, start a family, and start a new story of her own.
I'll see the woman she's become as she added the titles: wife and mom, to her life.
And through the years, I would have been able to show you the beauty of all the stages in your lives.
I'd be able to show that, despite the trials and tribulations of life, one thing remained constant-- your love.
You'll be able to look back and know that everything would be ok.
That the sleepless nights wouldn't last forever and that the rebellious teenage years were just a phase. Most importantly, you would see that it was all part of raising and becoming a strong, powerful woman.
And the best part?
You'll be able to show future generations of women, too!
I have never felt so beautiful. As a mom, it’s easy to put ourselves last. Easy to concentrate more on our families needs than our own. When Lanh mentioned doing a solo session, I was a bit hesitant . But I am so glad I did. I felt so pampered and so pretty.
Being pregnant isn’t always sunshine and roses. My body has changed so much and sometimes that’s hard to accept. When I look at the images Lanh created, I see myself differently. Although my body has changed, it is amazing and it is growing another beautiful daughter.
Thank you so much, Lanh, for allowing me to see the beauty in my pregnant body and for making me feel so gorgeous!
Where do I begin? This is my first pregnancy and it has been a little rough, to say the least, dealing with all the COVID. I was so lucky to find Lanh. I sent her an email and she emailed me right back. She fit me in that weekend at 38 weeks pregnant!!
I had been feeling so self conscious of my changing body and she made me feel beautiful which, honestly, is priceless. I was completely pampered from the moment I walked in, got my hair and make up done, and got to wear her fabulous dresses. She made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera and took the most gorgeous pictures!
I cannot wait to come back for a Mommy and me shoot! If I could give her a 10 out of 5 I would. Thank you so much for reminding me of the beauty in pregnancy and capturing these memories that I will cherish forever!

My maternity session was one of the best moment of my pregnancy. This was my first pregnancy so everything was new to me and I had hard time accepting my new body. Gaining 30LB in such a short period of time was very hard on me physically and mentally, however Lanh helped me celebrate my body, my journey of becoming a mother and also capturing the love between my husband and I.
We had to cancel wedding due to covid back in 2020, and we decided to start our family instead. It was always my dream to wear beautiful dress and take pictures. Lanh made sure I got that and I cannot thank her enough for this.
I am so happy that I got these amazing photos to remember and share with my son one day!
If you are not sure about maternity photos, I truly recommend booking a session with her not just to get beautiful photos but also to treat yourself and prepare for labor❤️ Celebrate your body’s amazing work is so important, I am so happy to find such a great photographer who taught me this and I cannot wait for next maternity or family photos we can take!

I’m not sure if I have enough words to describe how wonderful my experience was with working with Lanh.
From the introductory call, Lanh made my husband and I feel so comfortable.
She made us feel like we’ve known her our entire lives and were the bestest of friends. She welcomed us with opened arms and paid attention to everything we said we wanted…
Shoot day came and I was a little nervous but showing up there she immediately put me at ease.
Both my husband and I never felt like we were being photographed by an amazing professional photographer but rather a really close friend.
But truly, I do not have enough words to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Lanh.
She is one of the most understanding, easy- to-work with, and genuine person I’ve ever had the pleasure to be around.
Shivanee & Jason
Lanh was incredible to work with and very personable. She not only captured these beautiful photos but she made the whole shoot a fun experience. Most of my pregnancy I had struggled with my body changing but Lanh helped me embrace the changes. I swear I have never felt more beautiful than I did on that day! This was truly an experience I will never forget and now I have these gorgeous photos to cherish forever.
sarah + robb
Lanh was incredible. My husband and I are very awkward camera people but her wardrobe skills, coaching, encouragement, and the entire vibe of her studio were so impeccable it put us at ease immediately. Her turnaround times on proofs and final images were also above and beyond what we expected, and having everything included made the stress level of getting everything taken care of nonexistent.
Lanh was also super responsive over phone/text and email. I cannot recommend her enough — or Mel, the hair & makeup artist! (Be warned: However many photos you think you're going to buy, it's going to be more, lol. They're that good.)
jen + josh
I was very skeptical at first to take maternity pics because of pricing and just being super picky in general.
Lanh has been such a wonderful photographer and person to work with! I regret NOTHING! She made me feel so beautiful and made the session fun! I am so glad I was able to meet her and have her capture a beautiful time in my life !!!! The hair and make-up was divine and she nailed the look I wanted. These photos are an investment but so so so worth it!!!! All moms should have these types of memories in their homes! Thank you Lanh <3
OH EM GEEE!!!
From the initial conversation to the final delivery of photos, Lanh was nothing but EXCEPTIONAL!
Hair and make up alone made be feel like a movie star. Then stepping in front of the photography backgrounds and having her assistant toss my dress train into the air, I felt like an absolute model.
Prior to the photoshoot my husband wasn’t really sure why we needed maternity photos, let alone why he needed to be involved. During and after the shoot, he totally got it.
Lanh captured our love for each other, the love for our growing baby, and the excitement for what’s to come in this new chapter of our lives.
I’ll be forever grateful for the artwork and memories she created for us.
Lanh, one thousand times, “thank you”!
Suzanne & Jeff
Everything about my experience with Lanh was nothing short of fabulous. When I was looking for a maternity photographer, I knew I wanted someone who offered a client closet. While there are a few photographers who offer that, none of their websites were as detailed and thorough as Lanh's. She was very helpful as I tried on dress after dress in her studio as we worked to find the perfect ones to make me feel amazing.
As the day of the shoot drew near, she kept me updated with email reminders and again was always very timely with her responses.
Lanh thinks of everything and will have you covered from head to toe. Hair and makeup was flawless and will make you feel like a goddess.
For the actual shoot, she brings a pop-up tent so you can change into your various outfits and made us feel so at ease. I know most people will say they aren't naturals in front of the camera or know how to pose but again, Lanh will guide you the entire way.
Gallery delivery was super fast as was her turnaround for the final images that we selected. And lastly, the photos are beautiful. You will not regret working with Lanh!

I don't think I've ever felt more beautiful.
These pictures made this entire pregnancy feel like what I always thought being pregnant should feel like. With the COVID virus we couldn't do anything. But I wouldn't trade these pictures for all the baby showers in the world. I think thanking you is such an understatement. You are so wonderful and made me feel so confident!
Lanh was amazing and went above and beyond during our maternity photoshoot. Her photos are breath taking and look like they came out of a fairytale. She truly captures your family in a beautiful way and really listens to what your vision is.
This was our first professional photoshoot and we wanted to capture photos that were memorable for our family and son. She made sure everything was perfect during the session. I loved the gowns she lets you try on-it made me feel so beautiful for the day! She knew how to capture the best photos and took different shots with the lighting. She is amazing and an expert at professional photos.
I can’t say enough good things about her. Our photos came out so beautiful. She also made us a professional photo album and 2 beautiful canvases that are now hanging in our living room. I’m in love with our photo albums and look at it constantly!!!I’ve had so many compliments from friends and family. Book her, she is worth every penny!

AMAZING! 10 STARS!
Lanh's gown closet was extensive and I got to CHOOSE MULTIPLE LOOKS FOR MY SHOOT! Her photos were stunning and while I was worried about the price tag a bit, if you consider the cost of the dresses you would purchase plus consider cost for hair and make up it's a deal.
Day of the shoot she brings a portable tent for you to change into your different gowns. She sets your shoot at what she calls "the Golden hour." This seemed silly at first. But, trust the professional!! The lighting was perfect!! She was patient and directed me and my family.
The icing on the cake of an already amazing experience... the actual photos ( which is what matters, am I right). Ugh ...they were stunning! I was in love with all of them! You pay for what you get! I promise you won't be disappointed! Worth every single penny I spent! I cannot thank you enough, Lanh! Truly, your so gifted at what you do!! Still so in love with my photos!
Where do I begin? Lanh was such an amazing photographer to work with. She was not only professional, she was super kind and patient as well. You can tell this is her passion because she puts her entire heart and soul into her work.
She was able to work with my crazy schedule and had everything set up from hair and makeup to finalizing photos and making sure all the details were just right.
I felt so comfortable around her and I think that is very important. I couldn’t be happier to have found her and my pictures are so absolutely perfect.
I am beyond happy with the final product. Thank you again Lanh for everything and I hope to work with you again one day!
I’m so so happy I chose Lanh to do my maternity photos! It was very convenient to have hair and makeup done in one place and there is an endless amount of gorgeous gowns to choose from! All you really need to do is show up and everything else is taken care of!
Seeing the final product made me feel so beautiful and excited for my daughter to see these photos one day Overall, the environment was really fun and I can’t wait to come back in the future. I recommend Lanh to anyone looking to capture any special moment!
jenny + kelvin
I had the most amazing maternity experience with Lanh. She does such amazing work and makes you feel so beautiful. I’m no model but she sure made me feel like one! She helped me pose and made sure each detail was right.
From the makeup to the dresses to her studio, it was a dream day. My pictures turned out even better then a ever imagined. I am seriously so happy I found her and booked with her. You won’t regret it!
Booking my maternity session with Lanh was everything I could have ever dreamed of! I knew I wanted her to photograph my last maternity session even before I was pregnant.
The whole process was so easy and I didn’t have to worry about hair and make-up or what to wear! She has a whole wardrobe closet that clients can choose from. What’s even more impressive is that she did our summer session while pregnant herself! We were only a few weeks apart and she made sure that we were both hydrated and had rest in between shots.
Don’t even hesitate, if her gallery alone isn’t enough to convince you, her professionalism and just wonderful personality should! She is worth the investment!
Lanh is such a kind & talented artist who made me feel so incredibly beautiful during such a special moment in my life. Her maternity photoshoot package included such an amazing wardrobe to choose from.
Overall the day of the photoshoot went very smoothly. My husband and I felt incredibly comfortable around Lanh. I think this was so important as it is such an intimate and special moment that’s being captured.
I am so blessed to have such beautiful photos that capture this season in my life. I will cherish them forever and I hope my daughter will too. Overall I am so happy I made the investment in an artist who had an all inclusive package with outfits and hair and makeup. It took the stress away from shopping for maternity gowns that I will never wear again. The convenience and low stress made every penny worth it and resulted in some beautiful photos.

From the session with Lanh, I able to have beautiful pictures of my daughter. Also, I honestly have to admit, it rekindled a flame with my husband! Being first time parents was definitely an experience and finding the balance for one another was an obstacle. But having these pictures, I’m reminded of the amazing man that he is. I can’t stop looking at the pictures of him and our daughter together! I can feel my heart beating faster and I can’t stop smiling!
For me, it was stressful trying to plan a family photography session and coordinating outfits, but Lanh was patient with us and guided us through it all. She was amazing with our daughter! She got her to smile and that in itself made the experience all so worth it! I mean come on, what parent wouldn’t melt at the sight of their baby’s laughter and smile?!🥰 Lanh, thank you. Truly, thankful for your genuine passion with photography. Only a great photographer is able to capture what love would look like.

I can not say enough how much we loved having Lanh as our wedding photographer! She was helpful every step of the way sharing her professional insight which not only made our photos amazing but helped relief some stress the day of the wedding.
Ladies we all know we only want to look our very best in our wedding photos after all these are photos you want to look back fondly and instantly take you back to that day. Lanh made me feel comfortable and even gave direction on how to angle my face arm etc to make sure I would love how I looked in the photos.
She was quick and percise we could not believe how good the photos looked when we got the gallery!
She offers a premium album as well which we have and we love to show it off the quality is amazing and we love having memories that are tangible not on a usb or dvd, something that we can share quickly with family members and friends. If you are in search for a photographer for your special day I HIGHLY recommend her!
janice + richard
We had such an amazing experience with Lanh. She is extremely professional and completely understands what poses are flattering and comfortable for the mom to be. She had everything planned out perfectly! Hair and make-up were amazing! All the dresses are amazing, but the GREEN dress gave me the most compliments. She had cold bottled water for me and the family, she had a pop up closet to change on site.
I enjoyed my experience because it was all inclusive. She provided me a variety of locations to choose from based off of my vision, she provided the wardrobe selection, she provided hair and make-up. I didn’t have to do much of anything, which was great being so far along in pregnancy. I highly recommend her for a maternity shoot!
tamika + marquis
Having my maternity pictures with Lanh was an absolute wonderful experience. She was excellent with her communication from the very beginning. She explained exactly what I would be expecting from start to finish. Her website is easy to navigate & super user friendly.
I AM IN LOVE WITH HER WARDROBE. It was super hard to choose from all of her beautiful gowns, but she will help you with your final decision as well!.
Lanh, being a mom herself was also interactive & helpful with my daughter during our session, which allowed her to stay relaxed & cooperative (as much as 2 year olds can be lol) She helped me feel comfortable during my session which I was nervous about because I'm not good at taking pictures.
I am stunned by the final results, they are memories I will treasure forever! My husband feels the same way with her session as well!
manisha + ali
I had a maternity photo session with my husband and daughter by Lanh. It was just so fun and relaxing!
Lanh works efficiently and works well with all personality types. She has an eye and is extremely detail oriented. You really don't have to worry about a thing, she does that for you. For example she put lotion on my ashy legs, She was silly with my daughter and had a lot of tricks to help my toddler cooperate and get excited for the pictures.
She is extremely professional and you can feel her passion that fills the room and exudes through the photos.
Throughout the session she tells you how to pose, and shows you previews. It was just one of the most exciting, relaxing and fun experiences.
My family had fun as well. Zero stress.
Cindy & Dong
Lanh was a fantastic professional! she was very quick to respond and answer all my questions. We had a video chat to discuss what I had in mind and how we could work together. She has everything organized so we don't have to worry about anything: she has beautiful dresses, a makeup and hair artist who works with her, all final products for you to choose!
All you have to do is decide how you want to be photographed!
Also, the final photos became BEAUTIFUL! She captured all the happiness and love as we were expecting our little one!
Thank you Lanh for creating such beautiful memories for my family in such an important moment!
carla + jc
Incredibly talented and such a warm, welcoming and easy going person! I’ll start this review by saying she’s as close to a miracle worker as you can get. A few months ago when I contacted Lanh I had a vision in my head and it took only a couple of hours to finalize details and we were set.
The day of the shoot came and the weather ruined our plans but she still managed to get some really beautiful and absolutely stunning shots (Miracle) she worked through the rain, the humidity, mosquitoes, a very tired and hot momma, and my poor husband who has no idea how to pose and hates to smile for pictures. (Again, miracle.) We ended up with breathtaking photos. AND I got pictures of my husband smiling!
I’ve adored everything of working with her and I cannot stop telling everyone about her I’m so happy to have connected with her and I’m glad we now have a family photographer to capture our little family. Lanh, thank you so much for such a wonderful job and creating amazing memories for our son.
If you want to be treated like a queen for your maternity photos Lanh is the one to go to!
My husband and I are not the best at taking photos and she was able to provide us with direction and made us feel so comfortable.
I enjoyed having my hair and makeup done by Mel! She executed the look perfectly!
I also had my two year old and Lanh was so patient and understanding.
You will not regret having Lanh as your photographer!
I am soooo happy with the experience I had with Lanh; and I’d recommend her to anyone who wants to a photographer to capture the essence and beauty of pregnancy.
2020 was such a busy year for me, that it wasn’t until a month before I actually gave birth that I was finally thinking; that I should have taken maternity pics. I thought it was impossible to find someone to do them that late, so I accepted that I wouldn’t have any. Then, a friend of mine found Lanh’s page on IG; and encouraged me to try her as a one stop location for the hair, makeup, attire, and the dresses needed for my shoot.
Lanh was quick to respond when I reached out. I couldn’t have asked for a more efficient and effective photographer, everyone is just as in love with my photos as I am. I will cherish them for a lifetime.

I loved Lanh from the moment I contacted her. She returned all inquiries within minutes. She provided an information brochure on the best way to prepare for our family photos, suggested how to pull together color coordination since there were 13 of us.
The day of the shoot, she was wonderful and was organized. She worked well with our four young grandchildren and even knew to bribe them with candy.
The pictures turned out beautifully. She gave us a sneak preview and the full album earlier than expected. I can't say enough good things about Lanh. We feel totally blessed that she was our photographer for our family.
I appreciate Lanh and her work! The day I called to speak with her about a maternity photoshoot, she quickly helped us set a date and time.
When I arrived for the photoshoot, she had everything prepared. She even offered water and snacks! I was very impressed with her professionalism and kindness. She made the entire experience amazing. I was astonished that Lanh had such a wonderful wardrobe to borrow from for the photos! (Such a plus!!) She made us feel very comfortable!
Lanh was very responsive to all of the questions I had during the entire process. She is a dream to work with and is passionate about her artwork. Needless to mention, her photography speak for itself!
Lanh shot our maternity shoot today and honestly we have never had a better experience. She was SO friendly and so professional. My husband and I were a bit nervous and honestly felt a little unprepared but Lanh took care of posing and positioning for the perfect lighting-I mean she even had a STAND to get the perfect shot from above!
We were put at such ease and my husband was so impressed (he is very camera shy). Even straight from the camera the shots looked AMAZING.
Lanh was absolutely wonderful to work with! I was extremely hesitant on doing a maternity shoot and I had no idea how it would be. Lanh exceeded all of my expectations! Not only did she successfully create the images I had in my head but she offered her own suggestions that turned out so beautiful. She is experienced and knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable. I recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! I had so much fun and I can't wait to shoot with her again.
Lanh is an amazing photographer and I highly recommend her to anyone!!! She photographed my elopement and every detail and shot was perfect!
She is very detailed orientated and made sure we had all the shots we wanted, especially of those details that were important to me and my husband! Every photo was absolutely beautiful and she even wrote an amazing blog post about our special day that shared our story so beautifully.
I am looking forward to hiring Lanh again to capture more beautiful memories of my family in the future.
Lanh let me start off by seeing THANK YOU, a little back story of my pregnancy. My whole pregnancy i was high risk every time I would stand for too long my daughter would try to come out and I would feel like I'm going to faint, But one thing is for certain I wanted pictures of my pregnancy like I didn't get to have one with my first.
Meeting lanh made me feel safe and comfortable. During the photo shoot, I almost passed out and she immediately stop shooting and took care of me.
She treated my family as one of her own...and didn't rush me, her main concern was for me to feel better.
We got our pictures and I couldn't be happier with the results..I'm in love with my pictures. Thank you lanh for being great at what you do, for not only being a photographer but for also treating me as a friend after the shoot.
michelle + jacob
We were incredibly impressed with Lanh's vision and style. What we appreciate the most is her attention to the finer details. During the photoshoot, Lanh would thoroughly guide you before every photo - which in my opinion is a sign of a great photographer.
One of the things I felt really separates her from others is her all-inclusive experience - a pampering of hair & makeup along with a beautiful wardrobe selection.
You really just show up and smile for the camera! :) The whole process was so easy and pleasant!
We are beyond delighted with her work and the perfect moments she captured for us - she really made us feel so special and beautiful.
We would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for an amazing photographer!
Vanessa & Chris
What I love about Lanh is that she has a detailed timeline of what to expect and has great follow through. Furthermore, she offers in studio makeup/hair that is included in the maternity session fee. In addition, she also has a full closet of outfits. I personally like this full service experience as doing my own hair/ makeup can be time consuming. (Lanh's makeup and hair artist, Melanie, is absolutely fantastic!)
On the day of the shoot, Lanh was wonderful as she guided my husband and I on poses and she allowed for breaks which I appreciated being that I was 30 something weeks pregnant at the time. She also brought snacks which was super thoughtful. The overall photoshoot was alot of fun and my husband and I really enjoyed the experience. In terms of pricing, it was very reasonable and we were really impressed with our photos. Lanh is truly gifted and I loved how the photos came out! I'll definitely be going to her again for family pictures!
