Join photographer, Nanci Kerby, for a stroll in Yountville, St. Helena, or Sonoma, and you'll find interesting pieces of architecture, delectable windows to peer in, benches to lounge upon, and vineyards to provide a beautiful backdrop to your personal "portraits."

This is an experience-oriented photo session. It is fun and casual, and that is why Nanci has created this non-traditional portrait choice. Nanci shoots, edits, crops, and colorizes to tell the story of you and your adventure.

Your smiles, laughter, quiet moments and poetic rhythm are all documented in your photos and slideshow. Nanci will give suggestions along the way to keep the momentum, but she also catches the un-directed, natural moments as well.
