Waiting for Senna: An Adoption Shoot in San Francisco
Photos By Sonya Yruel

With today’s shoot, we’re focusing on some of the joys that marriage brings: deepening love and a growing family. San Franciscan couple Bojana and Paco long ago decided that they wanted to adopt internationally. Bojana is from Croatia, and Paco’s familial roots are in Peru, so they know a thing or two about transcending borders and cultures.
“It has been almost two years since my husband and I embarked on this long but rewarding journey of international adoption,” Bojana says. “In January 2014, our agency sent us a photo of a cute, chubby-cheeked little boy from South Korea, and it was love at first sight. We knew he was a perfect match for us. We named him Senna. We realized that we would have to wait months and months before we could bring him home, but we were committed. More than 18 months have passed, and we are finally set to bring Senna home.”
Being a photographer, Bojana naturally wanted to capture the period of anticipation and excitement prior to Senna’s arrival through photos, so she turned to Sonya Yruel, one of her colleagues and friends, to document this time in her and Paco’s life. “It was so special for me to take their expecting photos,” says Sonya, who shot the family of two, soon to be three, at some of their favorite San Francisco haunts.
