What a special shoot this was! After the October 2017 fires came just short of burning one of my favorite venues – Kunde Family Winery – the team at Kunde was so grateful to their local firefighters, they threw an early Thanksgiving/ gratitude feast. And asked myself and several photographer friends to come and take portraits of the firefighters’ families! All to say “thank you”. It was an emotional, beautiful thing to be a part of, and I’m so grateful to all of the first responders who fought the fires back in our wine country home during that difficult time.
