Funny story…I drive by a vacant lot near my house on the way out of town daily. Last January as the mustard flowers blossomed, I longed to do a photo session there! I am not one to trespass (especially when the NO TRESPASSING signs are posted loud and clear!) so I did my homework, and made a few calls to the city and then the county to find the owners. I finally get a number and called. Who was on the other end of that call? Carole! And come to find out, her family and my family go way back. Yeah, I know…it’s Healdsburg-what a shocker! She was thrilled I called to ask for permission, I was thrilled to GET permission, and since then we have connected through a running group, and then again just a few weeks ago when she realized she needed to schedule her sons senior portraits. She warned me that he wasn’t super excited, but he put up with me really well! His senior session in Healdsburg was done at his Grandparents property, and I really couldn’t have asked for a better location!
Ben runs cross country for Piner High. I look forward to getting some shots of him on the track in the Spring, when he gets his braces off!
