I’m telling you, my clients lately are looooooving their nature and cityscape photos. And frankly I agree! San Francisco and the Bay Area in general is urban but surrounded by gorgeous nature. I swear, SF has an identity crisis and this is one of those few times that I endorse it. I’m not into concrete jungles (ahem NYC) OR living out in B-F-E (ahem anywhere that has a higher population of bears than people).
Now, about this gorgeous couple. They were super laid back and fun. They had those zen vibes that made me all calm. But then they’d laugh or dance. I guess that’s called bliss. You know, perfect happiness or having great joy. Welp, this couple has that! Their baby is going to be one lucky guy having such great parents.
When I chatted with the mama about their maternity photos, it was pretty clear they were on board with nature and cityscape photos. In fact, they live in Los Gatos and were planning on driving up for their shoot. Our first stop was in the Presidio for photos of them with the stretching to the skies trees. The expecting mama wore a long sleeve dress in cream and it looked stunning at that local. She even paired it with a jeweled headband. Those photos were so romantic and earthy. Love.
Then, it was time to get urban so we headed over for some cityscape photos of downtown San Francisco. Towards the end of their session, I kept getting this nagging idea to ask if they wanted to make one more stop. So many of my clients want the photos of downtown San Francisco, but I really wanted to capture a different perspective of the city. They were game. And boy was I happy we went. Both of the photos I had in mind turned out to be my favorites (see the first two below).
