Sonoma and Napa Valley Tours
This Californian wine country tour is ideal whether you're a first-time wine taster or the owner of a prized wine cellar full of fine wines.
I have spent significant time researching and working on this project out of personal passion for the Napa Valley and wine. My tours are customizable and flexible based on your interest. I will talk to you about your interest before the tour.
Options besides wine tasting include sightseeing (Old Faithful Geyser, Petrified Forest, diRosa Art Preserve etc) hiking near Mt. St. Helena. We can also tour through some of Napa's towns, including Calistoga and St. Helena.
WalkAbout Casual Portrait Session
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.
