~ Design the mood and style of your business image ~

Personal branding session is tailored to each and every client individually. My aim is to design a photo shoot that is unique just like you and your business. Personal branding is communication of your brand in a way that defines who you are. What does your photo say about your brand?

Collection of photographs, that will represent your brand and your business – images that will attract your ideal client and will elevate your brand. My team is here to give you an amazing experience with professional hair and make up. I’m here to create the best portrait you’ve ever seen of yourself.

 

How would you like to be photographed? 

 

My portrait studio is  located in downtown Walnut Creek.  Personal Branding sessions are available in studio or on – location. Please contact photo@aikacardin.com for more information.  Thank you!

 

I have many clients become friends when I photograph their family for over years an P family is one of them. I have photograph their little girl, Emily since she was baby, Emily came to all my themed photo sessions for Valentine, Easter, Father’s Day, Halloween and Christmas  for last two and half years, and family sessions.  This time, mom requested  a family session at iconic location in San Francisco as they are moving to Florida.   We started at Presidio for forest look then headed to Baker beach to create family portraits with Golden Gate Bridge in background.  So many memories together and I’m sad that they are moving across the country but we both love traveling so we are planning to meet up at beautiful location next year for next family session!

What a special four generation family photo session.  I photographed  Ong Family in  Rossmoor, Walnut Creek.  Rossmoor is a beautiful senior living community and Ong family got together from New York, Texas and San Jose for family session followed by family lunch and gathering.  They have 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. They ordered beautiful custom designed album and framed prints as a gift .   Thank you  Ong Family for choosing me, it was an honor to be  a part of four generation family session!

 


 

I photographed K family 3 years ago in Walnut Creek for their Holiday Family Session and I was so excited to see them again !  Mom is expecting baby #2 and she looked absolutely beautiful, I love to glow of expecting mom.  We met at Presidio in San Francisco first then headed to Baker Beach for sunset.  Presidio and Baker Beach are both popular photo locations for maternity session, family session, and milestone session.  Kids can run around and we have so much fun together!   Mom and dad ordered 7 beautiful gallery wrap canvases to display in their home. It’s going to look so beautiful and I know they are going to to bring everyone smile!

 

 

Such a fun family photo session with C family!  I have photographed their daughter, Kyla couple times at TUTU School recitals photo sessions.  I work with TUTU School in Walnut Creek and Montclair and I photograph all little ballerinas in their recital outfits for their Bravo Bash !  It’s a cutest thing!    We started C family’s photo session at my studio in downtown Walnut Creek then headed to one of my favorite park near by!  My clients enjoy doing studio and outdoor photos in one session!  Studio session is more classic look and outdoor is more candidate look!  Yellow flowers were blooming so we stopped at flower field , too!  C family ordered three beautiful 16×20 canvases to display at their home and 10×10 custom design album for keepsake.  It is so special to have beautiful tangible products that you can look back for many years to come.

 

 

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!

I love it when parents contact me to gift a family photo session for grandparents.   It is so special to create portraits with grandparents and these will be treasured for many years and passed down to next generation.   At extended family session, I photograph all family members in different grouping.  Start with large group photo with everyone, then each family, grandparents and grandkids, mom & dad, etc.   Photo session is a lot of fun and session itself is a family memory!  I’m available to travel for extended family session to Palo Alto, Los Gatos, South Bay, San Francisco and East Bay Area and I also offer photo session at my photo studio in downtown Walnut Creek!

 

Mom requested a headshot for her social media profile, so here it is!

 

This is my 7th year photographing L family!  First year I photographed L family was when Jason, their older son was 7 months old, we took a dad’s boat to island, since then many sessions together, I have documented and captured beautiful memory of this beautiful family.  It is such a joy to watch family grow through my lens.   This time, we met at regional park in Clayton I recently discovered! Their house is filled with beautiful gallery wrap canvases from last 7 years and mom selected two 20×20 gorgeous canvases from this session to add to collection.    Thank you for choosing me, L family!

Nathan is 5! 
Jason is turning  7!
