I always wanted to use this location but I was not sure how exactly to get inside there until I saw another photographer’s photo and asked her. I love having teen photographer friends from the area that know about cool locations :D. It was my first time there and since Brooke and I live close and it was perfect.
The Round Barn is historical in Santa Rosa ca: It was founded by Thomas Lake Harris around 1875. Built near the end of the 19th century, it was part of the Fountaingrove winery owned by Harris’s protege, Kanawe Nagasawa, who reportedly designed the structure.
I also experimented with the “Brenzier Method” for the first time, creating a panorama with 4 stitched photos.
Mercedes is a beautiful 17 year old Senior from Windsor High . Before the session, we did talk a few times and I asked her if she had any red and blue clothe items because I recently purchased a vintage typewriter and a vintage red case that I wanted to use. Mercedes’ mom helped us posing while I directed her towards the right background. The field this time was not wet and my shoes did not get as dirty and I was prepared wearing old Ugg boots.
Mercedes es una chica muy linda y amable. Conversamos varias veces antes de estas fotos y le dije que usara ropa de color rojo y azul porque mis props so de ese color. Hace poco habia comprado una maquina de escribir azul y una maleta roja y los queria usar. Me diverti mucho porque algo asi tan natural como este campo me hace feliz.
I have been looking for a location like this for a few days, and I found it on Sunday when I went for a drive with a friend to Sebastopol ca. I was looking for a field that did not have a fence and this was it!. I knew this was going to be the place where I was going to pose my next client. My photographer friends on line asked me where did I find something so cool. I tell told that the outsides of the city is covered with fields like this right, now but the challenge is to find a field that does not have a fence. It was raining the day before and the floor was so wet. Mary was going to wear her nice shoes but I told her to keep her Uggs on. I was actually fun to walk into this wet gorgeous field~ Anyways it is a gorgeous place I can’t wait to go back.
It was my birthday when I received a very nice email “I’m a senior at Windsor High School. I was wondering if you could do my senior portraits, I’ve looked at some of your work, and absolutely love it!”. Her name is Karen and I met her and her mom here because I love this tree during the Fall. I believe this was my very last Senior Session that year. I photographed about 30 Seniors during 2011 yay.
