meet Abby


Hi there, I'm Abby, the storyteller behind Abby E Kane Photography. Let me share a bit about me and my journey! I was born and raised in New Mexico and moved to the Bay Area in 2020. I was originally in graduate school pursuing a Ph.D. in Infectious Disease & Immunology. I quickly realized that it wasn't the right career field for me, despite how important the work is. I opted to leave with a Master's Degree and began pursuing art full-time!

I found an opportunity as a second photographer with an experienced wedding photographer and began learning all about photographing weddings & elopements! After gaining invaluable experience, I was ready to open Abby E Kane Photography and begin to serve my own clients. I hope for you to be one of them! I would love to get to know more about you and your story so we can create some magic together!

The genuine connection she created translated into beautiful, timeless pictures.

I had an amazing experience Abby while she captured moments with my husband and our three dogs. The session was not only comfortable but also incredibly fun. We would definitely do photos with her again and wholeheartedly recommend her to others. The genuine connection she created translated into beautiful, timeless pictures. Highly recommended!

Abby was great to work with!

We happened to come across Abby's work on Instagram and contacted her for a maternity photoshoot. In short she was well organized, very personable, and did great on the communication front which put us at ease. While she directed us for a bunch of photos, she was open to take additional time to accommodate some of the poses that we wanted as well. She went above and beyond the allocated time to ensure we had the photos we needed, and the output really speaks for itself. She provided us a link to download all the very high quality photos. I would gladly recommend her for whatever event you have planned, you can't go wrong with Abby.

We are so happy with our family photos.

We are a family with two young children, 3 and 7 months, and a dog. We thought we were bringing Abby a challenge to photograph us all but it was anything but. She managed to get us still and captured so many lovely family pictures we will cherish forever. Abby is a talented photographer with a great eye for location. We loved the setting of our session. She is warm and friendly and we all felt comfortable with her. Especially our 3YO and dog. She is patient and will help guide/direct you and your family to get the perfect photo. Before our session, Abby was organized and kept well communication. I have already recommended her to friends and family. And hope to work with her again soon. You won’t be disappointed booking with her!

When I work with Abby I feel like I’m taking photos with a friend.

Abby is energetic, warm, and an extremely talented artistic photographer. She has created beautiful, intimate portraits for my family on multiple occasions—her work is breathtaking! Her approachable style and personality makes everything feel so natural. When I work with Abby I feel like I’m taking photos with a friend. She offers light direction for optimal images in an uplifting and compassionate way. We will continue to book with Abby whenever we are in the Bay Area.

I got images of myself that I am proud of and excited to showcase

I hired Abby to do a branding session for me to help me market my new business. The session went so well that I felt compelled to come on here and write her a review. Abby made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera, which is hard to do, and as a result I got images of myself that I am proud of and excited to showcase! She was very responsive, arrived to the photoshoot early and prepped me with materials ahead of time so I knew what kind of clothing to wear and what I could expect to experience with her and at the location I chose. I highly recommend Abby for any of your photography needs and will absolutely be hiring her in the future for any of my photography needs!

We’re looking forward to working with Abby again soon!

We were looking for a last minute session for holiday and maternity photos and were so happy with Abby’s work. The process to book was super easy and she replied quickly with guides and tips. On the day of the session, she was communicative and clear about where we were meeting. She was easy going and made us feel comfortable during the session. Moreover the photos are gorgeous and even better than we expected. Overall the whole process was super easy and wonderful. We’re looking forward to working with Abby again soon!

Abby is more than a photographer; she's a memory weaver.

Abby is more than a photographer; she's a memory weaver. The family photos she captured are not just images but slices of our life, radiating warmth and authenticity. Her ability to connect on a personal level made the session relaxed and enjoyable. Each photo tells a story, and we're grateful for the timeless moments she preserved. If you're seeking a photographer who goes beyond the lens to capture the heart of your family, she's the one. Highly recommended.

Also, what we were truly happy with was her dedication to understanding our ideas.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Abby for our pregnancy photoshoot, and the experience exceeded our expectations. From the very first consultation to the delivery of the final photos, we have only positive things to say, including Abby's communication with us throughout the process. She not only made us feel comfortable and at ease during the photoshoot, but also displayed a remarkable talent for capturing the most beautiful moments. The images she delivered are excellent, and we absolutely love them :) Also, what we were truly happy with was her dedication to understanding our ideas. She took the time to scope with us the locations, our attire, and was genuinely invested in bringing our ideas to life. Her thoughtful recommendations added an extra layer of creativity to the entire process. We are delighted with the outcome of the photoshoot, look forward to working with her again in the future, and would highly recommend her. Thank you, Abby, for creating memories that we will cherish forever!

She captured the real "us"!

We met Abby for a mini portrait session. To put it simply: she is organized, prepared, warm/super personable, and all around very talented. She gave the most clear directions on how to meet her. She was prepared and ready to go, while also never making us feel in a rush. She was so friendly it instantly put us at ease. We were super nervous going in to this. We even called this our *practice* engagement shoot because we thought we would be so awkward! Well... thanks to Abby's professionalism, vision, and all around talent, when we received our album we were shocked that we actually loved ALL of the pictures! She captured the real "us"! The location, the lighting, the prompts and poses, the editing... everything was so perfect. We were able to download all the very high quality photos and are using many for our wedding website! All in all, you will not regret going with this sweet, talented human!!

Not only did she help us let loose in front of the camera, she captured our love so beautifully.

We worked with Abby for our engagement shoot and WOW did she deliver!! My partner is a little camera shy so all I hoped for was just one good photo, but Abby knew what she was doing. Not only did she help us let loose in front of the camera, she captured our love so beautifully. Her photos brought me to tears and her personalism is unmatched! We cannot wait to work with her again!
