I enjoyed creating Ellie’s First Holy Communion Portraits at St. Isidore Catholic Church in Danville!  I have been photographing Ellie since she was in her mom’s belly for every year for last 8 years, so watching her in beautiful communion dress was very emotional for me….!  She has grown up to be a beautiful girl just like her sister, Izzy and her Mom!   I’m honored to document her special milestone!

I LOVE creating headshot for baby and kids model! I enjoy capturing their personality and energy and create competitive headshot in the modeling industry for future rising star!  I’m a preferred kids headshot photographer for several of top talent agencies in Bay Area and San Francisco.

As a mom of kids model, I truly understand the importance of headshot in the industry and I also understand how parents feel to get kids ready for photoshoot.  My son, Leo has been modeling for last 5 years since he was 4 years old.  We have been many casting calls, auditions and photoshoots.  I enjoy this modeling journey with him and we are lucky to be in bay area, San Francisco where there are many chances and opportunities  are waiting to happen and it could be yours!  Some of the big brand based in San Francisco is Pottery Barn Kids, Gap, Old Navy, Gymboree, Tea Collection, and many more exciting commercial and print projects!

I get so excited when I see my headshot clients in commercial, magazine, etc!   I feel happy for them like I’m their mom!!   I have many repeating clients who chose me to update their headshot every year and I enjoy watching them growing up through my lens.

I offer baby headshot at my studio in downtown Walnut Creek and kids headshot in outdoor natural light setting.  I’m available to travel to San Francisco and South Bay.  I offer business headshot, personal branding and family portrait session as well, please contact me how you can combine all sessions together in one session.  Please feel free  to ask me any questions and looking forward to working with you!

*Second Session – Maternity Session December, 2018

I was so excited when mom told me she was expecting baby #2 and we had so much fun creating adorable maternity family photos at one of my favorite park in Walnut Creek!  Little Kira is now 18 months old running around!  What a big difference from last session.  She is going to become a big sister soon and I can’t wait to photograph them as a family of four soon!

 

First Session – February, 2018

Kira came to my studio for baby milestone family session. This sitting up stage (when baby is around 7-9 month )is absolutely my favorite age group to photograph! They are usually so chubby, cute and smile and I just LOVE it!!  Both mom and dad are Dr. so it looks up a while to set up a session date in their busy work schedule and we had to reschedule one due to the rain, too….!   We started session at my portrait studio in downtown Walnut Creek, we created family portraits, mommy & Kira, Daddy & Kira and Kira’s individual portraits.  Studio session is perfect for baby because we can do some naked baby portraits in warm environment.  We went to park after to create outdoor portraits , I love it that now I can offer studio and outdoor session in one session,  it’s so much fun to create two different look of family portrait in one session! I can’t wait for them to display these beautiful pictures on their wall!

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!
