Santa Cruz Senior Portraits, Vigné Farms Equestrian Park
Expressive Photographics recently made a donation of services, supporting fundraising efforts for the Bonny Doon Community School Foundation. You may have read the earlier article about it here. I am happy to announce that the lucky high bidder on our donated photography package has used it for one of our fabulous Santa Cruz Senior Portrait sessions! I hope you will enjoy this collection of just a few favorite shots from this portrait session, at Vigné Farms Equestrian Park, in Bonny Doon. When Lisa contacted me about the photo session, I was immediately excited about the opportunity to photograph at Vigné Farms Equestrian Park, because I had been hearing how gorgeous it is from several people. When I arrived, I immediately knew we were going to have a blast shooting among the open meadows and towering redwoods. Lisa’s daughter loves horses, and especially her own beautiful horse, which also stars in this photo shoot. I now have another favorite spot for capturing our Santa Cruz Senior Portraits – or any kind of portraits for that matter. A big thank-you to Vigné Farms, Lisa, her daughter and one amazing horse, for allowing me the opportunity to create this collection of senior portraits!
Before we get into the photographs, I want to share just a bit of the back-story on this photo shoot. Our contribution, along with many other excellent items, was available to the highest bidder in the silent auction at The Bonny Doon Art & Wine Festival, last June. This fun foodie-art event supports programs for the arts and music, at The Bonny Doon School, and has been running for eleven years now. It was great to be able to help support education in the arts, and I hope to contribute again next year. When it comes around again, in 2014, you can get info and tickets for the Bonny Doon Art & Wine Festival by clicking here. If you know of a worthy organization or cause that might be interested in having us donate a portrait session for their fundraising auction (sorry, no raffles), please get in touch with us! We donate to four or five organizations every year. The photography does not have to be Santa Cruz Senior Portraits, and can be any type of photo shoot we do, including family portraits, family reunions, babies, individual sessions and more.
Now… Here are those beautiful senior pictures!
Yes, I was so happy to get mom and the family friend in this fun group shot!
