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!
The blue crushed velvet and Carmel’s eyes were absolutely mesmerizing……. this is only one portion of the photoshoot which was perfectly planned during a break in this crazy rainy season. Valentine’s Day is this week and these photos capture the fun and fashion of the season. The blue velvet dress is from OOH LA LOFT. Makeup by Mandy at Sensational Skin Petaluma, Hair by Rapunzel’s. It all came together like perfectly at the French inspired hotel ,The Metro. This is a style I like to call Modern/Vintage! A perfect combo of the new and the old, the trendy and the classic. This shoot was so special because ,when Carmel was three, I had the pleasure of photographing her during a family portrait shoot! Carmel is now a Senior attending St. Vincent’s High School. It’s just amazing seeing the little girl I photographed 15 years ago all grown up and so incredibly beautiful, both inside and out.
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!
Andee is a recent St. Mary’s college graduate and fellow photographer!!! The photo shoot took place in Petaluma’s historic downtown on an overcast day. I used to shy away from shooting on a day that was any thing less than sunshine, but I’ve come to really enjoy challenging myself to get beautiful lighting in any circumstance. Andee was an absolute delight to shoot with her super cool retro styles (love the wayfarers) and authentic, sweet vibes that show through in the images.
