My Teddy Bear Gives Free Hugs (Social Experiment in Downtown Sacramento Capital Park)

Yesterday I had seven children portrait sessions in Downtown Capital Park. The first session started at 8AM and the last one ended at 6PM. Up to now, I have been taking family photos with parents and children together. This year I am changing it up a bit and am also offering individual and sibling portrait sessions to parents who have growing children and who want to document their children’s growth throughout the year.

All of the sessions took place in Downtown Sacramento Capital Park underneath the beautiful pink magnolia tree. Teddy Bear gives hug in Sacramento Downtown Capital Park-14

To make it more unique, I brought along my extra large brown teddy bear as a prop.

In between shoots toward the end of the day, I decided to do a social experiment with Teddy. I sat him up on one of the empty benches on one of the busier walkways (in front of the camilla garden) inside Downtown Sacramento Capital Park. All day, I’ve been hearing strangers gush over the large bear and how cute he is. To entertain myself while waiting for my next client to arrive, I wanted to see how many stranger will walk by and ask to take a picture with Teddy.

Right after that, this little cutie came over to hug Teddy so her Mommy can get a photo as well.Teddy Bear gives hug in Sacramento Downtown Capital Park-3

Lots of people walked but and gushed over Teddy but overall, they went their way, except for these guys and a few others that I didn’t get a chance to take a picture with:

She wanted a photo of her dog with the bear but she wouldn’t stay still so I told her to get in there too. So cute how she perked up when I called out her name.  What a good dog!Teddy Bear gives hug in Sacramento Downtown Capital Park-17
