What to wear

Pastel, white, cream colors will look great!

This is a quick 5 minutes session to create a special memory of Father & Daughter Dance!  There will be two backdrops ready for you, castle theme one for your little ballerina and classic cream color one for a portrait with daddy. You can select one or do both as long as time allows! Professional Prints and digital files are available for purchase and start from $ 20~. Photo sessions will be scheduled back to back, so be sure to arrive at Tutu School at least 5 minutes before prior to your time slot and that your child is dressed and ready to go!

 

I look forward to seeing you all soon!

The mom is the owner of Tutu School in Walnut Creek and Montclair, Oakland. I have been enjoying working with Tutu School this year for their Father & Daughter Dance Party photos and their Bravo Bash Recital and I was excited to photograph G family!  But it started raining right before we started a session… so we waited, waited and waited till the rain passed by,  see the ground look wet?  It really was wet..!  In this busy holiday season, sometime, it’s just really hard to reschedule the session and find the other day to shoot especially for the mom who owns two very successful ballet studios!  So, I’m glad we waited and it stopped raining!  We got lots of fun family photos for 2016 Holidays!  I can’t wait to see their Holiday Card!

I have never photographed a family of 6…. and it was lots o fun!!! 4 kids age ranging from 1 year old to 5 years old. It was another beautiful morning and perfect to create their 2015 Holiday Family Portraits!   We met at Heather Farm in Walnut Creek.  We created lots of fun pictures together.  what I really enjoyed creating from this session was to create a portrait of mom / dad with  individual child. I think these portraits are special and I think it’s important for a child to have a portrait with their parents 😉  Enjoy your pictures, S Family!

” Aika is not only wonderful with kids (which is super important when photographing them) but her work is beautiful.  She is able to capture such amazing moments.  We used her for our family photos which at the time included my husband and I and 4 kids under the age of 5.  Not easy to get a picture of the whole family looking amazing but we walked away with dozens of photos that were beyond beautiful.  We highly recommend her and I know we will be using her in the near future. ”   Karin.

I have been photographing Colette since she was a little baby and this is my 3rd time photographing H family! First photo session was at her house in San Ramon when Colette was about 4 months old, then we went to Blackhawk Plaza in Danville for her 1 year old milestone session then a park in San Ramon for her 2 years old / Holiday photos!  I LOVE watching my client grow through my lens. Colette has same birthday as my daughter and we met at mommy’s group when our babies were about 2 weeks old!  Thank you, H family, I look forward to seeing you again next year!
