San Jose Maternity Photography - Michelle Chang Photography

I photographed Christie and Chi Wai a year ago for their SF city hall wedding.  It's a year later and they are expecting a baby boy!  I was so happy when they contacted me with the news!  We decided to do the maternity session in their home, where they feel most comfortable.  It was a nice warm spring morning, we were able to capture nice intimate moments of them.  Their baby is due in July and I can't wait to meet him!
