The Avila Valley Barn is one of the most awesome places I know. It's kind of like an old-timey East Coast farm stand that has the benefit of being in California, where they can grow produce and flowers year-round. There is a huge variety of animals from dozens of chickens running around to alpacas, and emu. The models especially bonded with the goats, who were eating dried leaves right out of their hands.
Both of the models were fantastic. It was my first time working with Kylee and Eric, but they dove right in and got into the spirit of the shoot. Only in California can you enjoy ice cream in the wintertime!
