Happy Halloween, everyone!!!

Best, Aika



I had such a fun time photographing O family at Baker Beach in San Francisco!  They flew all the way from Tokyo.  It was a gorgeous evening in San Francisco and I LOVED LOVED capturing adorable smile of their 2 years old daughter, Mao!  Isn’t she so CUTE??  Everything was just perfect and we created lots of sweet and fun portraits together.  Thank you for letting me capture your San Francisco memories, mom and dad! I hope you enjoy pictures as much as I do!

The cutest session ever!  Around 4 months is filled with milestones!  Smiles, tummy time, finding toes, all the cuteness you want to remember and I’m here to capture them!   I LOVE Baby Life Style Session, I think it makes extra special and memorable  to do a photo session at your home using baby’s nursery, bedroom as a backdrop. Colette has such a cute nursery, all color coordinated in purple!  Enjoy the picture, mom and dad! It was such a fun session!

Gavin is (almost ) 3 years old! I have been photographing Gavin for more than 2 years now and I LOVE it!  Gavin is a full of energy and he just won’t stop running!!! We’ve done photo sessions at park and beach in East Bay, San Francisco in the past so we chose Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco for different look.  I LOVE the colors here! Enjoy the pictures and happy 3 years old, Gavin!!
