The young crew behind ONEHOPE Wine believes wine can do more than dance with flavor and stain frocks fashioned from fine white camel hair. Each bottle has been instilled with beauty and a rich taste to complement its selflessness. One ONEHOPE gift box yields one bottle each of California merlot, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, zinfandel, and sauvignon blanc ($120 for gift box or $18.99 each). The 2009 merlot is aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels, resulting in flavors of toasty spice and a versatile drinkability.
“My style is soft, genuine, full of life, love and romance,” photographer Liliana Scherillo, owner of Liliana Photography, says of her work. Her portraits of children and adults, which sometimes incorporate whimsical coloring or playful costumes, have a theatrical flair and vibrant emotion. After photo sessions, customers can view their proofs online before ordering prints, selecting only the images that really summarize “determination” for personalized motivational posters.
Revelation Photography’s location is always changing. That's because owner and photographer Nicole Mondestin keeps her studio entirely mobile. She hauls portable lighting and backgrounds to all sorts of locations, shooting photo sessions both indoors and outside. Depending on her clients' wishes, she might capture moments at parks or in front of a living-room fireplace. She also photographs weddings. After each shoot, Nicole retouches each and every photo.
