Christmas is my favorite time of the year and my Holiday Christmas theme photo sessions are very popular and sell out quickly!  I usually offer two set up, One is classic white and Christmas lights set up with ornaments, the other set changes every year for my amazing repeating clients 😉      Putting some fun ideas together for this year’s Holiday photos and I can’t wait to see familiar faces!!!

 

Classic White and Christmas Lights set up

2017 was Winter Wonderland theme!    Stay tuned for 2018 set up!

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!

 

 

 

 

I had a lot of fun photographing I family!  They are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary and their daughter, You is turning fourteen, so this was a very special session to celebrate family’s milestone!  I family lives in Menlo Park in South Bay , San Francisco and mom requested photo location as green, nature backdrop.  We met at one of my favorite park in South Bay, Elizabeth Gamble Garden, this park is always filled with flowers and it is so perfect for any type of photo session, baby, children, senior and family session!   Thank you for a fun session, I family and Happy 20th Wedding Anniversary!

素敵な I ファミリー様の家族写真撮影です。結婚20周年記念とお子様の14歳のお誕生日ということで、お母様より撮影の以来がありました。Menlo Park にご在住ですので、そこから近い Elizabeth Gamble Garden で撮影を行いました。この公園は緑、お花が多く、私のお気に入りの撮影スポットです! 笑顔が絶えずとても楽しい撮影でした!

I recently photographed C family when their 3rd baby arrived.  2 months later,  C family requested another family photo session as grandparents were visiting from Hong Kong to meet their grandson.  What a great opportunity to create a family portraits with grandparents!    We met at one of my favorite photo location in South Bay, Elizabeth Gamble garden in Palo Alto.   C family ordered a large canvas of group photo for grandparents to take it back to Hong Kong!

 

 

 

Family photo session with grandparents!  I visited W family’s house in Hayward, California.   Grandson was visiting from Germany and mom scheduled a photo session to capture special moments of grandson and grandparents together .  We started from their house then headed out to the park near by.   I love grandparents session,  it’s so special and it’s so precious.  These are the photos that will be treasured for many years to come.   Grandma and grandpa come to my studio in Walnut Creek to view photos and they have ordered a beautiful canvas to display at home!   Thank you, W family for having me!

 

Mom contacted me for a maternity session, we were planning to meet at park in Walnut Creek then I received another email that mom was in John Muir  hospital in Walnut Creek for bed rest.  She told me that she didn’t have any photos of her belly and photos with her older daughter and husband and she asked me  I could photograph her family at hospital. Off course, I said yes.   She got a permission from her OBGYN Dr. to leave her room for only 20 minutes.   We met at courtyard of John Muir Hospital and did a photo session!  A few days after the photo Session, a baby arrived premature and he was in ICU for 2 months.   Baby is happy and healthy and I was so excited to meet the baby at their beautiful home in Walnut Creek for a newborn family session!

They had a beautiful backyard over looking Mt. Diablo!   Mom requested to take photo with a little graduation hat Copeland received when he left ICU at John Muir Hospital.  Copeland was wide awake when I started his solo portraits,  I know most photographers try to put baby in sleep for newborn portraits but for me, I like awake baby so that I can capture beautiful eyes !

U family signed up on my Baby Collection Package which is a package of three sessions to capture baby’s first year.  I’m super excited to photograph him again when he is around 8 months ( sitting up stage) and over 1 year old ( walking stage)!  Thank you, C family for letting me capture special moment of your famiy!  Grandma was visiting to meet her grandson from South Carolina , too!
