I’m so excited to be a part of Valentine Dance ( used to be called Father & Daughter Dance)  for Tutu School again!  I had so much fun photographing everyone last couple years and I look forward to seeing familiar faces and new ones this year!  This is a complimentary photo session by Tutu School, Walnut Creek & Montclair and Aika Cardin Photography, exclusively for Tutu School students. Please sign up and reserve your spot from below calendar!

February 17th 3pm-5:30pm ~   Tutu School, Montclair

February 18th 2:30pm – 5pm ~  Tutu School, Walnut Creek

Please make sure to sign up on correct location:


What to wear

Pastel, white, cream colors will look great!



This is a quick 5 minutes session to create a special memory of Valentine Dance!  There will be two backdrops ready for you, castle theme one for your little ballerina and textured light blue/ while color one for a portrait with daddy, grandpa. ( sample dance photos above are taken at my studio, actual backdrop for Valentine Dance is textured light blue / white and it’s really pretty! ) . You can select one or do both as long as time allows! Professional Print and digital file are available for purchase and start from $ 30~. 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!
