Need a perfect gift? | Angela Lang Bay Area Book Photographer

Vintage Knits for Modern Babies makes a wonderful and affordable gift for a baby shower, Christmas, birthdays, Mother’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, or just because! It’s only $13.45. The reviewers, all of whom are listed on this blog from all over the world, say that this book is great for beginners through advanced levels, and that the photos are both beautiful and functional in helping the knitter to visualize what the pieces are supposed to look like. This will minimize frustration for the knitter. Check it out on Amazon!

This book holds a special place in my heart because it was my first book I photographed, and I did it in 4 photo shoots all while I was 8 months pregnant. Many of the adorable models are my clients and friends. It was published internationally by Random House/Ten Speed Press , and landed me a feature in the international Professional Photographer print and online magazine and my name on the cover. Sweet.
