Introducing Our Newest Collection: Bartholomew Park

Our latest collection, Bartholomew Park, was named after the historic winery where we photographed it.  Nestled at the foot of the Mayacamas Mountain range, just blocks from the charming Sonoma Plaza, the gorgeous organic vineyard estate boasts pristine views from every angle.  We just knew Bart Park (that’s what the locals call it) would be the perfect location for our newest collection.  The beautiful landscape was ideal for the color palette of this collection: ripe citrus, soft grey and midnight blue textiles with a print that reminded me of dancing shadows.

My cute little crew and I headed out on a very hot Labor Day holiday.  We met at 4:00 p.m., not the most ideal time for photos since the sun is still pretty high this time of year, but it was a school-night and we needed to snap to it!  Let me tell you, three kids in smoldering heat + escalating winds + wicked lighting = a very interesting photo shoot!  The pictures taken just do not do this gorgeous location justice.  But, these kids sure were troopers!!!

Anya and Hunter no doubt discussing how to get out of this photo shoot and into a swimming pool!

Two year-old Lincoln was non-stop entertainment for all!  He ran from one end of the lush lawn to the other, giggling and running circles around us as we tried to get him to stop long enough to snap a picture.  Oh, to have that energy again!  Hunter had a ball chasing him, but Anya found it all too exhausting.  Ha!

A lively game of “Capture the Lincoln” exhausts Anya.

The biggest hero of the day was Lincoln’s mother.  Seven months pregnant and running around in triple digit weather on a holiday.  Who does that???  You are one amazing mama, Kim. Truly.  Thank you for sharing your sweet, little boy with us!  And thank you Bartholomew Park Winery for providing such a picturesque location for our photo shoot.  I cannot wait to come back another day and enjoy a picnic under the shady trees with a glass of your beautiful wine.  Ahhhhh…

A Moment of Silence

 

Whew! It’s been loooong time since we have blogged. Really. Long. Time. So, let’s take a moment of silence to say goodbye to this poor, neglected blog while we transition to a fun, new format.

 

I always feel a little redundant posting the same information in various formats: our website, Facebook, newsletter and then again on our blog.  The mere thought of it just puts me to sleep…Snore-a-thon!  So, I just stopped posting here until we had a fresh idea with content reserved only for our blog.

 

Living in the beautiful Northern California Wine Country we have the priviledge of being surrounded by some of the most amazing wineries in the world. Breathtaking gardens, local farms and picturesque scenery are around every bend. These magical places have become our favorite locations to photograph our clothing designs.

 

Going forward we will give you a behind the scenes look at these photo shoots.  We are often asked what Miss Anya Larre was laughing at or where pictures were taken.  And how the heck did we come up with the name of that collection????  Maybe you have always wanted to visit the Wine Country and would like a personal introduction to scenic spots from a local.  Or maybe you already live here and just can’t get enough of the scenery.  You may even be interested in what Wine Country kids are wearing each season.  Whatever your reason, we hope you enjoy the new format and come back often.
