SIGN UP FROM HERE for Halloween & Holiday Photo Booth : Please consider your little ones nap time when you select a time!


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 lets 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 face.  Full diaper doesn’t photograph well… Please have 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!

2016 Holiday, Fall Mini session in San Francisco, East Bay, South Bay, Family Session, Aika Cardin Photography. Best Family Photographer in Bay Area San Francisco

They’re HERE!  I am finally ready to announce my most anticipated sessions of the year.  My Fall Holiday mini sessions often sell out quickly, so this year I’ve opened up more dates, including weekends because I adore my new and repeat clients who wait all year for this. These shorter sessions are perfect for busy families who are ready to update their family portraits or create stunning 2016 Holiday Cards.  Celebrate the beauty of the season with the convenience of my mini sessions!  You can book your Fall Holiday Mini Session online. It’s super easy and simple! I’ve even simplified ordering with online galleries because I know that the Holidays are just as crazy for you as they are for me!

Holiday Family Mini Sessions will be held  here in beautiful East Bay, South Bay and  San Francisco locations this year, we have so much to choose from that there is surely something that fits your family style, urban, woods, garden, fall leaves, etc!  I have also added two new locations this year for my repeating clients! (THANK YOU for being such amazing clients for many years!)  Check out my location guide here and just pick your location and time from the calendar below! 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! It is very important to me that clients have a printed memory on their wall to enjoy and cherish for many years, therefore, my holiday mini package includes professional prints this year!  Professional prints make great gift for grandparents and family members as well!

Here’s another fun holiday mini session from S family!   I enjoyed meeting new families at holiday mini sessions.  S family was so fun to work with and looking forward to seeing them again in the near future!  Thank you for joining me at mini session!  Enjoy the pictures!

 

 

I was so excited when I saw F family was signing up for my holiday mini session. I have been photographing their little girl, Ella for over last 2 years at events like, Valentine, Easter and Halloween. She always have such a pretty outfit when she come to my photo booth at the event so I was really excited to see what she was going to wear for this session!   Her red dress looks very nice against the fall color in the back and having red in portraits make it look more holiday 😉  Her big brother Ray is so gentle with her and I would love love to have  a big brother like Ray for my son !!

Thank you for letting me capture your holiday portraits!  Enjoy your custom design holiday cards and pictures!!
