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!

This is my second time photographing S family!  Our first session together was in Embarcadero in San Francisco for their maternity Family session.   I LOVE photographing in downtown San Francisco area, I love the urban look and it’s just so pretty and perfect for maternity, family and engagement session!  I was so excited when family contacted me to schedule their Holiday Family Session now as a family of 4!  They have moved to a beautiful home by Alta Plaza Park and they wanted to create holiday family photos there! I LOVED the idea  😉  Creating family photos at your own home is so special. I can’t wait to photograph this beautiful family again at their next milestone!

December 2017 :  Holiday Family Session

 

Happy 1st Birthday Naya! T family came to my studio on Walnut Creek to celebrate Naya’s first Birthday!  I LOVE 1st birthday milestone photo session, it’s so special and big milestone for a baby and mom and dad!  My studio is filled with natural light and it gives this beautiful soft effect on portraits and I LOVE it!  Naya’s uncle and grandpa came to photo session as well and we had so much fun together!   All my sessions are family sessions and you are welcome to bring grandparents, uncle, aunt, sisters, special people in your life.  I believe it’s important to exist in photograph and these are the photos you will look back when Naya is older and passed on to generation.    Mom invested in beautiful wall collage of framed prints to display at home. I hope these photos will make them smile every time they see them 😉

November 2017

Love H family!  I was excited to hear that mom was expecting second daughter and we had so much fun creating their maternity & 2017 holiday card photos at Old Borges Ranch in Walnut Creek!

The color of dress is my favorite color and it looks great on mom! Their daughter Colette has exact same birthday as my daughter, Erika , it’s such a cute age!!  H family welcomed beautiful baby girl and we just did a newborn session at their gorgeous new home in San Ramon and can’t wait to share them with you all soon!


November 2016:

I have been photographing Colette since she was a little baby and this is my 3rd time photographing H family! First photo session was at her house in San Ramon when Colette was about 4 months old, then we went to Blackhawk Plaza in Danville for her 1 year old milestone session then a park in San Ramon for her 2 years old / Holiday photos!  I LOVE watching my client grow through my lens. Colette has same birthday as my daughter and we met at mommy’s group when our babies were about 2 weeks old!  Thank you, H family, I look forward to seeing you again next year!

This is my 7th year photographing Takase Family!  First time I met Takase family, their son, Akio  was 1 year old then we have done sessions every year, including newborn session for their daughter, Mika!  I truly enjoy watching family grow through my lens.   This time, Takase family chose Stanford University for their 2017 Holiday  Card Family Session. Such a beautiful family and so much laugh and smile during the session!  I can’t wait to see them again!

T family drove from San Francisco to Vasona Park in Los Gatos for their family Session!  They brought their dog, Kona to include in their 2017 Holiday card!   Their little boy, Kai and Kona are so cute together and those are mom’s favorite photos!  This family is Japanese and it is nice to see Japanese family at photo session!   ( I’m Japanese, too! )
