2016 Holiday, Fall Mini session in San Francisco, East Bay, South Bay, Family Session, Aika Cardin Photography. Best Family Photographer in Bay Area San Francisco

They’re HERE!  I am finally ready to announce my most anticipated sessions of the year.  My Fall Holiday mini sessions often sell out quickly, so this year I’ve opened up more dates, including weekends because I adore my new and repeat clients who wait all year for this. These shorter sessions are perfect for busy families who are ready to update their family portraits or create stunning 2016 Holiday Cards.  Celebrate the beauty of the season with the convenience of my mini sessions!  You can book your Fall Holiday Mini Session online. It’s super easy and simple! I’ve even simplified ordering with online galleries because I know that the Holidays are just as crazy for you as they are for me!

Holiday Family Mini Sessions will be held  here in beautiful East Bay, South Bay and  San Francisco locations this year, we have so much to choose from that there is surely something that fits your family style, urban, woods, garden, fall leaves, etc!  I have also added two new locations this year for my repeating clients! (THANK YOU for being such amazing clients for many years!)  Check out my location guide here and just pick your location and time from the calendar below! Holiday Mini sessions will be focused on photojournalistic ‘lifestyle’ portraits: portraits of your family interacting, candids, and kids playing in the leaves and some formal poses! It is very important to me that clients have a printed memory on their wall to enjoy and cherish for many years, therefore, my holiday mini package includes professional prints this year!  Professional prints make great gift for grandparents and family members as well!
