Jullie B/Cardinal Newman High School/wine country Senior photography

Deep in the Kenwood area of Sonoma’s wine country you’ll find some of the most beautiful winery’s and Inn’s…….This very special photo shoot was for Cardinal Newman’s beautiful Jullie Bundesen! Jullie is one of my 2017 Senior models and was featured in the “Road Trip” photo shoot. The photos were taken in 2 different locations in Kenwood…..The Kenwood Inn & Spa and the Ledson Winery. We had special access to these 2 AMAZING locations because of Jullie’s family ties. Her Grandfather did the stunning masonry work at Ledson! Funny story…Once we arrived at Ledson, Jullie locked her keys (with her wardrobe) in the car. Another set of keys was at least an hour away. However, just before I left for the shoot, I grabbed a beautiful maxi dress just purchased from OOH LA LOFT,  just in case. So that saved the day and was perfect for the interior shots at the winery! Jullie’s wardrobe from OOH LA LOFT. Makeup by MAC.

 

 

Santa Rosa Senior photographer/ Julia’s fall winery session

Julia’s photos were taken at a BEAUTIFUL winery in Sonoma…..She wore the most adorable feminine floral vintage style dress for the first look. Mom, Leslie made a floral crown to add to some of the photos! And those purple lace up heels are to die for! Julia is the youngest of 3 sisters ( Emily and Maddie) and all three girls had there Senior photos done at this winery by me. Each of them very different but yet with enough similarities that there is continuity. Leslie had this well planned out from the beginning. Check out all of Julia’s style below….Makeup is by the VERY talented Brittney Lee!

        

Petaluma/Santa Rosa Senior photographer/1970’s California Road Trip

Boho styled girls

It was love at first sight when I saw the Native American trading post in Sebastopol on HWY. 116!!! Some of my favorite memories of being a child was driving to Montana to visit my Grandparents and cousins. It would usually take several days and along the way were Indian Trading Posts. They were always filled with treasures you’d never see anywhere else. Sebastopol’s “Native Rider’s” is the only Trading Post in between Arizona And Washington state. They have beautiful American made hats, furs clothing and exquisite vintage jewelry. (check out the squash blossom necklaces in this shoot) Definitely worth checking out! Thank you Native Rider’s for letting us shoot there! Or crash your establishment on Memorial Day! I can’t say enough about how wonderful these Senior models are! They include Makenna Mattei and Maddie Kenyon Mattei from Casa Grande, Ashley Ayers from Petaluma, Haley Antonini from St. Vincent’s and Jullie Bundesen from Cardinal Newman.Thank you so much!!! You girls ROCK!!!

We literally went on a little Road trip in Sebastopol hitting some awesome and funky spots for this shoot. The styling is by me with input from each model. The girls did their own hair & makeup for a natural “road trip” look. My inspiration and some of the clothes are from Spell Designs Australia, surprise,surprise! #Spelladdict

ENJOY! MJM

         

Santa Rosa Senior photographer/ Cardinal Newman Senior Charlotte

Charlotte is as adorable and sweet as she looks! She had so many fun ideas from the balloons, books and glitter to a beautiful bohemian chic look with a teepee. I love working in a studio setting and the bubble gum pink background was a perfect match for Charlotte’s  girly, girl looks. The lovely floral, bell sleeved dress and bohemian looks were photographed “on location” in Petaluma. These brought out a more reflective, chill vibe.  Charlotte with be attending college in South Carolina this fall. WAY TO GO CHARLOTTE !!!!!
