Personal Branding Session for Entrepreneurs  

 

~ Design the mood and style of your business image ~

Personal branding session is tailored to each and every client individually. My aim is to design a photo shoot that is unique just like you and your business. Personal branding is communication of your brand in a way that defines who you are. What does your photo say about your brand?

Collection of photographs, that will represent your brand and your business – images that will attract your ideal client and will elevate your brand. My team is here to give you an amazing experience with professional hair and make up. I’m here to create the best portrait you’ve ever seen of yourself.

 

How would you like to be photographed? 

My portrait studio is  located in downtown Walnut Creek.  Personal Branding sessions are available in studio or on – location. Please contact photo@aikacardin.com for more information.  Thank you!

Do you know anyone who might be interested in this adorable Spring mini?  Please spread the word for me!!

 

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 let’s 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 the face.  The full diaper doesn’t photograph well… Please have a 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!
