It has been a journey to have my son in modeling industry and I finally had a chance to update his headshot for his modeling portfolio!  He enjoys posing in front of camera and I enjoy seeing behind the scene of the magazine photo shoot set! We were in Newport, Rhode Island visiting grandparents and we walked around Newport harbor and found some fun spots for photos.  It’s always so busy at home in East Bay, San Francisco so, during the vacation was a great time to take some photos of my kids!  Good luck, Leo in this fun modeling adventure!  San Francisco kids model headshot photographer San Francisco, bay area kids model headshot photographer, Aika Cardin photography.

My son, Leo recently took a 2 weeks sailing camp at Newport Yacht Club in  Newport, Rhode Island.  Newport is the heart and capital of sailing and racing in the US today. How lucky is he to be able to take a sailing lessons there.   He flew there  2 weeks before me and stayed with grandparents, ( he loved it, of course!)  then I flew in later and I got to see Leo in action!  The sailing instructor kindly let me ride his instructor  boat with him  so that I could  take pictures for Leo and other sailers!   It was so much fun to see my 7 years old out in ocean with his sailing boat. How cool is that?  Leo enjoyed sailing camp and he is already excited to go back there next Summer!

A Family welcomed their 3rd baby girl and her both grandparetns were visiting from Japan to see their granddaughter!  We created beautiful outdoor newborn family and extended family portraits at the park near by their house in Millbrae then headed to their house for more indoor newborn portraits.  The portraits of grandparents and grandkids are so precious and I know they will be cherished for many years to come.  Enjoy the pictures, A Family!

サンフランシスコ、サウスベイにお住まいのAご家族の撮影です。3人目の赤ちゃんのお誕生のお祝いに日本から、おじいちゃん、おばあちゃんが遊びに来ており誕生記念にみんなで家族写真をとのご依頼でした。生後2週間の赤ちゃんとともに、沢山素敵な写真が撮れました。おじいちゃん、おばあちゃんとお孫さんの写真はとても愛らしく可愛いですね。一番上のお姉ちゃんが、大事に大事に赤ちゃんを抱っこしている姿もとても可愛いかったです。生後間もなくでしか撮ることの出来ないこの新生児独特の雰囲気、新生児のやわらかさ、心地よく眠っているかなと思えば、途中で目をぱっちりと開けてくれたりして、かわいい写真が沢山撮れました!

Welcome to the world, Lucas!   I had such a fun maternity session with Esther and Min at Palace of Fine Arts and Baker Beach in San Francisco a couple months ago and I was so excited to finally meet their baby boy, Lucas!  He was 9 days old when I photographed him for life style newborn family session at their home in Millbrae.  House was filled with beautiful natural lights and Lucas was absolutely a perfect newborn to photograph! He even gave us a little smile during the session and he looks so cute in light blue, don’t you think?  Congratulations, mom and dad and look forward to photographing Lucas again at next milestone!

* check out this cute little video of Lucas’s very first photo shoot! He shows a little smile !

This is one of their favorite image from maternity session at Baker Beach and it’s beautiful displayed in baby’s nursery!  This is 11×14 double matted professional prints in classic 16×20 frame.  Isn’t this beautiful?   One day, they will look at this picture and tell Lucas how he was in mommy’s belly  😉

Isn’t she gorgeous?  I enjoyed photographing Ashley and Nathan for their maternity photo session last week.  We started off at their house in San Francisco then we went to Palace of Fine Arts for more fun and casual maternity portraits. Ashley was 37 weeks pregnant at the time of photo session and she looked absolutely beautiful.  We had so much fun and I can’t wait to meet their baby soon!

Isn’t she gorgeous? Halle has modeled for Pottery barn kids, Tea Collection, etc and she is a super star!  I was so excited to create her new headshots portfolio!  It was a little windy day at Crissy Field in San Francisco but we managed to capture many adorable photos for Halle. Crissy field is a great location for headshot as it offered variety of backgrounds from greens with flowers, old building and beach!   I can’t wait to see her in next catalog!

I LOVE Mommy & Me Session!  This is  my 5th year photographing Tina & Maya!   Aren’t they gorgeous?   Maya was only 2 years old when I photographed her for the first time and now she is a beautiful girl, just like her mama!  I LOVE photographing at Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek, it provides such unique backdrop and it’s perfect for family session as well as maternity and engagement session. Enjoy the pictures, Can’t wait for our next session together!

I met W family at Rossmoor. Rossmoor is a senior community in Walnut Creek, they have golf course, pool, several club houses and restaurants on site spread out over 1,800 acres. W family was visiting grandma over 4th of July weekend from New York.  What a great idea to do a family photo session when you are on vacation and it makes it even more special to include grandma! We had lots of fun together and looking forward to seeing them again when they are visiting East Bay next time!

Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary, S Family! What a great idea to do a family session at home on actual 10th wedding anniversary date to celebrate this special milestone! They have a beautiful home in Moraga, East Bay, San Francisco.  We started session by looking at their wedding album together then some smoothies time, tea party, outdoor play, then ice-cream time to end the fun session. Mom wanted me to capture family as is. Can you feel the love of the family?  Now we have beautiful family photos to remember and celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary!  Enjoy the pictures, S family and looking forward to photographing your family again soon!
