My name is Annie Tao. I am a photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I specialize in lifestyle photography where you get to play, hang out, and be yourself. I capture the moments, real emotions and stories that occur during our time together. Check here often or subscribe to my blog (RSS feed) to see what I am up to or get creative inspiration.

I wanted to share an article I wrote that was published on DPS today. It’s Newborn Photography with my LIFESTYLE twist! Yeeha!
I’m a city girl, but thought the “yeeha” was appropriate for some odd reason.
Anyhow, if you photograph babies or are about to have a baby and want to do a newborn shoot, you’ll wanna read this. Enjoy.
Animals and children are a lot alike. They can be shy, curious, excited and playful! They all have unique personalities. They all have a story. And they all need boundless love, warmth and companionship.
That’s why a pet owner’s veterinary choice is so important. You choose one whom you trust… one whose primary concern is getting your baby well from an illness or injury and helping them stay healthy. The staff at Bishop Ranch Veterinary and Urgent Care are all of these things!
In fact, my husband and I brought our little Henry there for many years until he passed away last year. We received enormous support there, beyond what we expected. So when Bishop Ranch contacted me about a photoshoot (not knowing I had been there before), I was elated.
It wasn’t my intent, by the way, for this blog post to sound like a client testimonial! haha. Raves naturally poured out when I had to think about what to write!
Anyhow, see for yourself. Below are a few images from last week’s Commercial Photography session. You can feel the pride in the staff and that there is care and love all around!
I have had this article topic in the works for probably 2 years! That’s taking procrastination to a whole new level! Oh boy.
Well, as they say, better late than never, right? ;) Hope this article (not the procrastination) will inspire someone. Happy shooting! ~annie
