Since we just celebrated Mother’s day, I put together a video of all of the moms I have photographed last year or so ♥.  Come and take a look at some loving, happy, funny, adorable, amazing moms. I went to Tokyo Disneyland with my son and had a wonderful time there.  I hope you all had a fabulous Mother’s Day!

They’re HERE!  I am  finally ready to announce my most anticipated sessions of the year.  My Holiday sessions often sell out quickly, so this year I’ve opened up plenty of dates, including weekends because I adore my new and repeat clients who wait all year for this.  With so many clients wanting the whole family on their cards this year, or in desperate need of some updated family portraits, I decided to make my Holiday special for the full family up to 5 people  with a 30 minute session!  I’ve even simplified ordering with online galleries because I know that the Holiday’s are just as crazy for you as they are for me!

My Holiday Mini sessions will take place at my favorite local park in Walnut Creek/ Concord Area. Holiday Mini sessions will be focused on photojournalistic ‘lifestyle’ portraits: portraits of your family interacting, candids, and kids playing in the leaves and some formal poses for Holiday Cards 😉

I love finding any kind of vendor through word of mouth because you can always trust a friend’s recommendation.  So far that very reason, I’ve started new client referral program for Aika Cardin Photography called ” Share the Love”.  I’m proud to say over 95% of  my clients are referred to me by their friends and family, so I wanted a way to give back to the people who put their trust and confidence in my work!  So get out there and continue to ” Share the Love”!
