It’s my favorite time of the year, Halloween & Christmas!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing little ones in their Halloween costumes, Fall colors, and their adorable Holiday outfits.  Register today for a 15-minute portrait session by Aika Cardin Photography!  Bring your little one in to capture their cuteness and magic of the season.  These mini sessions are very popular and will sell out quickly.

Halloween & Fall set up!  I will have orange fall trees background set up ( see the very first photo above) with pumpkins and brown panel set up  where we will capture your little ones in their Halloween and favorite Fall outfits!  My motto is always simple, simple, simple…the adorable little ones should be the focus and the backdrop is an accessory.  Why do I do this?  As a mother of a four years old girl, ( I have nine years old boy, too!)  I LOVE how the little ones look in adorable Fall outfits!!  Fall theme set up is optional and I highly recommend choosing simple outfit like overalls, dress, sweater, and pants, etc for a quick outfit change.  For Halloween Costume, please avoid a costume with the big hat as it will create a shadow over their cute little face. Please feel free to bring any Halloween theme prop like treat bag to make this photo session more special! Halloween mini sessions are the perfect way to remember the excitement of Halloween!

FEE: $30 per child, include 15 min photo session , use of two backdrop with Halloween/ Fall props,  one outfit change

SIGN UP HERE for Halloween & Holiday Photo Booth: Please consider your little ones nap time when you select a session time!  If the available dates are not shown in below calendar, it means it’s already sold out. Please email me at photo@aikacardin.com to get on the waitlist. 


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!

I visited D family’s beautiful house in Alamo, California for family photo session.   I have photographed their older daughter at Alamo Elementary School’s gala fundraising event earlier this year!  I was excited to see her again and photograph her family.   They have a beautiful backyard and mom wanted family portraits there.   Mom came to my studio a week after photo session to view photos and she purchased four gorgeous 20 x 20 framed photos to display at their home.  I hope those pictures will give everyone a smile when they look at them  and that is my goal of my business!  Thank you, D family for a fun session!

P family visited my studio in Walnut Creek from San Francisco for mom’ headshot and family portraits!  Mom is a lawyer and she needed an updated headshot.  We started session at my studio in Walnut Creek then headed to park near by for more fun and candid style family portraits!    My clients love getting two set of photos from studio and outdoor in one session!  At my family session,  we can spend time creating mom and dad business headshot as well as studio style family portraits. I’m also a preferred headshot photographer by San Francisco’s talent agencies for baby & kids model headshot 😉

Please email photo@aikacardin.com for available dates!  Fall & Holiday family photos booking is in full swings and my availability is very limited!

I have been photographing A family for 8 years!   Their son Callum and my son Leo have been best friends since they are 3 months old 😉   It is so special to document Callum growing up every year now he is a little man all dressed up in suits!  I opened my photography studio in downtown Walnut Creek last year and I was so excited to photograph them at my studio!   It’s a lot of fun to dress up for family photos!   I love how the red dress looks on mom!  You can bring in multiple outfits for different look.    I enjoy photographing outdoor in nature in natural light and I’m also loving shooting in my studio!  Check out here to see more options of studio backdrop!   Please email photo@aikacardin.com or send inquiry through contact page for my availability and more infomation!
