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 a 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 Aikacardinphotography1@gmail.com with any questions and I’m looking forward to photographing your little ones!

Aloha! I have been photographing S family for the last 9 years,  they are one of my very first clients when I started this photography business!   Every year, we meet at beautiful locations to create their family memories and for the stunning Holiday Cards!  This time, we met in MAUI!!!!     Grand Wailea is such a beautiful resort and I truly enjoyed taking photos there!  Their 2019 Holiday Cards are beautiful and I’m so grateful that I got to travel to Maui for a family session from San Francisco! It is an honor to document girls growing up through my lens.

Mahalo!

I love photographing R family!  I met them two years ago and we had a family session at Baker Beach with Golden Gate Bridge in the background! I was so excited to photograph them again!  Kids have changed so much in two years!  This is one of my favorite parks to photograph in Walnut Creek, beautiful light and I love the nature look!  I offer a family session at my studio in Walnut Creek and I’m also available to travel to all beautiful locations in San Francisco, South Bay, and East Bay area!  Please contact me at Aikacardinphotography1@gmail.com for more info and availability!

 

 

It was a gorgeous evening in San Francisco, 80 degrees!!   I photographed A family when their Son Rayan is 1 year old and I was so excited to see them again!  We started the session at Presidio for some woody look then headed to Baker Beach for the sunset!  Rayan loved playing with sticks and walking on the log at Presidio and he loved the beach, too!   We were so lucky to have such a nice weather for a photo session!  Mom and dad ordered a beautiful gallery wrap canvas collage from Presidio to display in the family room and 30 x40 baker beach family photo, too!  My goal is to create beautiful family portraits for the family to enjoy and display on the wall.  Kids love seeing themselves on the wall with mom and dad!  Thank you for such a fun time, A family!

Studio Baby & Kids Holiday theme backdrop

 

 

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. You can book both Halloween& Fall and Christmas ( popular!!) or pick your favorite!  These mini sessions are very popular and will sell out quickly. Reserve your spot now!

RECOMMENDED AGE: 5  months old ~ Any School-age kids!  (recommended: baby should be able to sit up with support)

Halloween & Fall set up!  I will have a purple Halloween backdrop for Halloween costume and brown panel set up where we will capture your little ones in 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 5  years old girl, ( I have ten years old boy, too!)  I LOVE how the little ones look in adorable Fall outfits!!  You can try both backdrops or pick the one you like.  I will do my best to create an adorable portrait in 15 minutes! I highly recommend choosing a 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 a treat bag to make this photo session more special! Halloween mini sessions are the perfect way to remember the excitement of Halloween!

FEE: $35 per child, include 15 min photo session, use of two backdrops with Halloween/ Fall props,  one outfit change
