Sophie’s Spring Senior portrait Session

Photographed in the beautiful Sonoma County countryside with spring wildflowers, puffy clouds and a stunning sunset set the scene for Sophie’s Senior portraits. In this series, I love how the many sides of this beautiful young woman are displayed. From sweet to fierce and everything in between. Thank you Jennifer and Sophie for having me as your photographer!

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

Retro, vintage, red lips and ever an airstream….. Yep, I’m on board!!!! Audrey is a dream to work with! Petite, lively and those eyes!

Audrey’s hair and makeup by “Dukes and Dolls” Petaluma.
