Oakland Maternity Photography Session: Ayana + Damani

       We have done annual family photo sessions with Ayana for several years, but this year we got to document a very special new chapter in her life. She and her husband Damani are going to be having a baby (!!!!) so a maternity session was in order. We met with them on a chilly winter morning in Oakland, stopping at several lush locations to take photos. Ayana + Damani are thrilled about the baby and they are going to be truly wonderful parents! We can't wait to meet their baby boy later this year and take photos with their new tiny family member!
