I'll tell you what, I am really loving all the little princesses that have been adventuring with me to this gorgeous castle winery in Napa Valley. It is so much fun to see the bright eyes and look of wonder, when even the most seasoned model sees the real live castle. It's this magic, the wonder of childhood, that makes me so thankful that I get to do this. That my job is to capture the joy of little beings, and hold that moment in time for their families.
Katiana Upton has been modeling since she was 10 months old. She is such a professional, yet still a bubbly 6 year old at the same time. She was truly a joy to work with. Katiana had driven all the way from Los Angeles, and never showed a sign of it. She danced and glided all over the castle, with a giant smile whenever a passer by complimented her on her princess style.
Castello di Amorosa is in the heart of the Napa Valley wine country, sitting just between Calistoga and Saint Helena. It's such a wonder that is packed with tourists any day of the week or any time of day. They come from far and wide to see this castle, that is actually built with stones from Tuscany that were moved here just for the building of this castle. Luckily the patrons are all very gracious when it comes to little princesses having their photo taken.
Katiana is wearing a stunning gown by Anna Triant Couture. This gown is called the petal gown and it is available for rent. The floral broach and front ruffle are removable so you can wear the dress in two different ways. It's so lovely Anna makes this gown available for rent. Prefect for a special event, or having special photos taken without having to purchase a couture gown. I have many clients who choose to rent their gown for their child's photography session. It makes the session even more special for their children when they feel like a real princess, and these gown can't help but make you feel like a real princess.
As we get closer to summer, the winery will get more and more crowded. If you are considering booking a special photography session for your child with this Napa Valley castle as the backdrop, now is the time to do it.
