Thecla + Chris : Got baby! (San Francisco Golden Gate Park)

I met Thecla and Chris at Sharon and Chi's wedding. Thecla is only a couple months away from the baby arrival, but her agility was quite impressive as she was helping just everywhere. I was very happy when she contacted me a week later that she and Chris would like to book a maternity photo session with me.

It was a gorgeous day in San Francisco, very sunny and warm. At the beginning, Chris seemed a bit uneasy in front of the camera. I started with some distant shots to let them be themselves and get warmed up for a while. Then magic happened and the shutters on my cameras kept clicking and the couple was much more natural with all different kinds of shots: closeup, intimate, playful, loving... We stayed at the beautiful De Young Museum and the Botanical Garden till the end of the session. Thecla and Chris did a great job! It was a very enjoyable shoot!
