Five years ago, we were tasked to find a place to shoot our first-ever September Style issue. We chose the beautiful Towne Lake Boardwalk and the resulting photos were stunning. This year we decided to go back to the Boardwalk and were invited to shoot at the recently opened Passerella Ristorante & Wine Bar. While styles have changed, the pictures were equally as gorgeous.

The Passerella décor boasts bright, bold colors amid references to familiar high-end Italian brands like Gucci and Masserati, while white table linens and seasonal flowers combine to give the restaurant an upscale, yet comfortable ambiance. The view from the windows of the lake and beach is serene, and the light streaming through the windows offered the natural light photographers love. And of course, patrons can choose to dine al fresco on the patio.

We partnered with local shops, My Simply Chic Boutique and K Marie Boutique, who provided us with the latest in fall fashion for women of all ages. Models for K Marie were mother-daughter duo, Karen Moore and Erin Pisani, who also happen to own the online boutique. My Simply Chic was represented by Carsen Lindsey, a graduate from Cy-Ranch High School who you’ll find helping shoppers at the store, and Delaney Garner, a senior at Cy-Ranch.
