Last Call for Pictures at the Castle








Well, now that all the kids have moved out and my parents are "empty nesters", they have decided they don't need an 8500 square foot mansion and will be downsizing somewhat. While that may make life simpler for them, unfortunatlely for me, I will be losing my absolutely favorite place for location shoots. There is not better place to get phenomenal light, fantastic architecture, beautiful landscaping and a huge variety of looks in one location! Besides having 9 bathrooms for clothing changes, authentic French Chateau architecture and the finest attention to detail I've ever seen in a house, one can do a family, children's, engagement or senior shoot there and have it look like they traveled from a field of wild lavender, to the inside of a stately mansion, to a rustic boulder and grass hillside, to a beautiful brick and Gothic archway courtyard.

If you have contemplated having your pictures done at "The Castle" or would just like a completely unique settting to capture your loved ones in, NOW is the time. My parent's last day is Tuesday May 27th. I have opened up 3 days of final shooting there on Fri. May 23rd, Saturday May 24th and Monday (Memorial Day) May 26th. And to make it really worth your while, I am offering a 2 for the price of one special:
If you can bring another friend or family, I will offer you both 50% off of your session fee. And anyone who books a session at the castle will also receive 15% off of everything ordered. In addition, if you can refer someone who may be interested in this special, I will give both them and you a $40 print credit after the session - good for any prints past or future! In order to take advantage of the best light, I can only do 2 sessions on each day - one late afternoon and one early evening. So book now to reserve your spot! Contact me at 949-553-2434 or 951-775-2818 or via email at vanessa@hondaphotoart.com

Oh how I wish... but no. My dad designed and built the house around when Jared was born. But we sure have had some fond times there!
