I had the honor of photographing the Sonoma County Survivors Reunion again this year. Pretty amazing event where rescuers – Dr.s, RN’s, dispatchers, paramedics, firefighters, EMTs and good samaritans come together and celebrate a life saved. This years event was held at Imagery Estate Winery in the Sonoma Valley. Henry 1, Sonoma County Sheriffs helicopter flew overhead while a crowd of nearly 200 waved. Each of the 6 survivors stood on stage with their rescuers as their stories were retold. The only way to get a second birthday, pretty amazing!
Team Swift, Sonoma County’s road racing junior development team held their “Ride the Route” the morning of the Stage 8 finish of this years Amgen Tour of California. The juniors on Team Swift had the opportunity to ride the 15 finishing miles of Stage 8 along with some of their alumni who have gone on to race in Europe, including the Tour De France.
Mendocino County Ranch, this 1300 acre gem in Southern Mendocino County has a seasonal creek running through it. Wildlife abounds, I saw a Western pond turtle swimming in the creek today and several deer enjoying the last of the green spring bloom this year. This project is for a marketing campaign that will use photos to showcase this ranch.
Team Swift is the local junior development road racing team in Sonoma County. Headed by professional women’s cyclist Laura Charameda, Team Swift gives riders between the ages of 10-18 an incredible opportunity to develop into U.S. Pro Cyclists. These kids have heart, soul and determination that can be seen as they compete in the weekly TNT race. Sonoma County cycling roots run deep!
