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!

I offer holiday family sessions at my studio in Walnut Creek and I’m 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!

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
