Look no further than this San Jose mom's Instagram feed for beautiful imagery and local scenery. She's the owner of a wedding photography business, and her photos display her creative eye and design aesthetic—from snaps of her adorable family to stylish selfies. Yet it's this mom's vulnerability and honesty that prove the most inspirational.
