Another Jaden Appearance

So I finished up my blog post yesterday congratulating little Jaden on her appearance in Parents Magazine and opened up my Pottery Barn Kids catalog to see two pictures of her there. Girl, you're one busy model! We're proud of you!

Corinne Takes "Miss Photogenic"

Big congratulations goes out to one of our most beautiful clients, Corinne, as she took the prize for most photogenic at her first ever pageant in Northern California! She was SO much fun to shoot since seriously, we didn't have to do a thing but snap away! We love these kinds of shoots where it just happens naturally and no matter what's going on, they just look amazing! Congratulations girl, we're proud of you!

Jaden is famous!

Well we had the awesome priviledge of shooting Jaden and her brother Jake for a cover shoot back in the summer of 2006 for Foothills and Folsom Family Values magazines. Jaden's been busy modeling for some time so she's an old hat at this (at 3 years old!) but it was a first for me, working with a pro. I get a little magazine each month called Parents and who was in the ol' mag' but little Jaden and big brother Jake!! I didn't take the picture or have a darn thing to do with anything but it felt so cool to see their little faces right there on the pages of a big time publication! Here is Jaden, as we shot her in the summer:

And then here's the big publication in Parents November 2006 issue on page 227:

You GO girl!

Big Sister and Her Quadruplets

So I guess we're on to something really amazing. We just met this amazing family with 5 children, all in diapers! You got it, 5 kids, 2 years old and younger. Four of them are just 5.5 months old - quadruplets! I'm an identical twin so in my childhood years while participating in Twins Club Int'l, I met my share of multiples but it still amazes me every time I meet more of them! I'm drawn to the individuality between babies born at the same time and this group was no exception. Three girls and one boy. What a group! And the real joy was to watch their older (barely older at only 2 years old!) sister interact with them. You'll see what I mean when you see this image:

Could that be any more precious?! And we managed to capture one image of all 4 of these miracle human beings looking right at me at the same time. What a moment behind the camera that was!

And now here's big sis, shining her lil' 2 year old smile for the camera. Who says 2 year olds don't sit still? Ok, well this one one of many hundred shots, but she's working it! Thanks little guys for the fun photo shoot! Let's do this again soon!

Totally Individual Triplets

That's right. They're triplets. Totally different and unique and an amazingly individual threesome. These miracles are just over a year old and they were a joy to follow around a campsite to capture they're little smiles (and tears!). This wasn't a photoshoot by any means. It was a weekend with wonderful friends. But who could pass up the opportunity to freeze those personalities forever?

So we've had the best opportunity come our way recently! It's a God thing really. There's no other way to explain how our paths crossed! The end result, our friends at Family Values coupon magazine have asked us to shoot the covers of some of their quarterly magazine issues. Specifically, we've been shooting for the Folsom and El Dorado Hills/Cameron Park issues. What a fun "gig" this is! You couldn't ask for cuter models than those the dentist who purchases the Foothills cover sends our way. They make this job exactly as fun as we hoped it would be.

You'll have to look out for this magazine and then support the companies represented. They have some really great deals in there! You can also contact them to place an ad since it does go out to over 20,000 homes. Dan Hall can be reached at

Hello World!
Allow us to introduce ourselves. We're Caryn & Stella of Eikon Photography in the greater Sacramento and El Dorado County areas. Check out our photography website at

We specialize in babies and children on location either indoors in their natural home environment using natural light streaming in from wide open windows or outdoors at their favorite locations. Our favorite locations include bedrooms with lots of soft light from the windows and outdoors in wide open, well lit shade. We love when spring flowers add lots of extra texture and color and when fall leaves add pop and colorful dimension to the images we create. Check back often to see what we've been up to and what we've been shooting. Here's an image shot at a recent session of Caryn's niece. This is the "I'm not showing my braces for this one!" shot! We love her serious model face!
