Halloween & Fall set up!  I will have orange fall trees background set up ( see the very first photo above) with pumpkins and brown panel set up  where we will capture your little ones in their Halloween and favorite Fall outfits!  My motto is always simple, simple, simple…the adorable little ones should be the focus and the backdrop is an accessory.  Why do I do this?  As a mother of a four years old girl, ( I have nine years old boy, too!)  I LOVE how the little ones look in adorable Fall outfits!!  Fall theme set up is optional and I highly recommend choosing simple outfit like overalls, dress, sweater, and pants, etc for a quick outfit change.  For Halloween Costume, please avoid a costume with the big hat as it will create a shadow over their cute little face. Please feel free to bring any Halloween theme prop like treat bag to make this photo session more special! Halloween mini sessions are the perfect way to remember the excitement of Halloween!

FEE: $30 per child, include 15 min photo session , use of two backdrop with Halloween/ Fall props,  one outfit change

How to Prepare:

~ Feeding little ones ~

Please feed your little ones before you arrive and make sure they drink plenty of water.  15 minutes can seem like a long time to a little kid so let’s make sure we make them comfortable so they can put on their best smiles!

~ Clothing ~

Please make sure to try on the clothes in advance so that you can adjust the size. Most importantly, your little one has to be comfortable!  Please try to avoid large hat as it will create a shadow on the face.  The full diaper doesn’t photograph well… Please have a diaper changed right before the session!

Please feel free to Email at photo@aikacardin.com with any questions and I’m looking forward to photographing your little ones!

Mom contacted me for a maternity session, we were planning to meet at park in Walnut Creek then I received another email that mom was in John Muir  hospital in Walnut Creek for bed rest.  She told me that she didn’t have any photos of her belly and photos with her older daughter and husband and she asked me  I could photograph her family at hospital. Off course, I said yes.   She got a permission from her OBGYN Dr. to leave her room for only 20 minutes.   We met at courtyard of John Muir Hospital and did a photo session!  A few days after the photo Session, a baby arrived premature and he was in ICU for 2 months.   Baby is happy and healthy and I was so excited to meet the baby at their beautiful home in Walnut Creek for a newborn family session!

They had a beautiful backyard over looking Mt. Diablo!   Mom requested to take photo with a little graduation hat Copeland received when he left ICU at John Muir Hospital.  Copeland was wide awake when I started his solo portraits,  I know most photographers try to put baby in sleep for newborn portraits but for me, I like awake baby so that I can capture beautiful eyes !

U family signed up on my Baby Collection Package which is a package of three sessions to capture baby’s first year.  I’m super excited to photograph him again when he is around 8 months ( sitting up stage) and over 1 year old ( walking stage)!  Thank you, C family for letting me capture special moment of your famiy!  Grandma was visiting to meet her grandson from South Carolina , too!

 

 

 

 

 

This Mother’s Day, I want you to exist in photographs for your children, for people who love you and for yourself.

Create memories that last a lifetime.

My portrait studio is located in downtown Walnut Creek!
