Do you remember them? Back in May, I photographed Tina for her maternity photo session at Yerba Buena Garden and Union square in San Francisco.  It was one of my favorite maternity session ever!  You can see their photos from here : http://aikacardin.com/?p=605

After 2 months later , now they are family of  ” three”  . I was so excited to see them again for newborn photo session!  Their baby girl , ” Coco” ( love the name! ) was 5 days old. It’s such a precious time of her life.  First couple weeks flies by so quickly especially for first time parents, so I know how important it is to capture the love of family  and document all little details for them.  Enjoy the pictures, mom and dad!  Coco is absolutely beautiful !

Another fun family session in San Francisco! K family is returning to Japan after spending 1 year in San Francisco. We began photo session at Union Square  with famous heart object and  cable car then headed to Alta Plaza Park where K family played often with kids.  We finished at Baker Beach with world most photographed bridge, ” Golden Gate Bridge ”  in background. It was gorgeous evening!  We created so many fun and beautiful photos together and now they have a beautiful memory of San Francisco to take home with them.

もうすぐ日本に帰られる駐在員のK家族様のサンフランシスコでの撮影です。有名なユニオンスクエア、ケーブルカー、ゴールデンゲートブリッジでの撮影の他に、よく行った思い出のアルタプラザ公園でも撮影しました。なかなか家族4人揃っての写真というのは、あるようで無いものです。沢山のサンフランシスコの思い出写真が出来たのではないかと思います!

Everything was just perfect in this family session!  Beautiful Summer morning with little cloud in sky.  I photographed their adorable daughter, A at Valentine’s Day Photo booth at Small Talk Family Cafe in Walnut Creek back in February.  She was so little that time and now she is sitting up on her own and even standing!!  I LOVE documenting baby grow through my lens.   These moments are so precious and you want to remember it forever.  They are only little for a little while.  This is my absolutely favorite age to photograph!  Once baby is sitting up on her own, we can create more variety of poses and I just LOVE those chunky arms and legs!!!!!!     These pictures will be displayed over their fireplace, entry way and playroom  with beautiful gallery wrap canvases and framed prints.   I’m sure it will make you smile every time when you walk by pictures.   I can’t wait to show them final products !

Thank you S family for fun morning!

 

This one is going to be displayed as 24×30 gorgeous gallery wrap canvas over fire place!

What an adorable family!  I LOVE the outfit mom chose for family. We had exchanged many emails before sessions about outfits and everything.  We are so happy the way all pictures turned out.  These pictures will be beautifully displayed at their house and I just finished designing 10×10 deluxe album for them.    Album tells a story and I know it will be cherished for many years to come.

This is a very first picture I took and she gave me a big smile . I know she is not wearing hat or headband, she is not in those baby prop bucket or bowl, sometime simple portrait like this is my favorite. Simply focused on baby, just baby.
