Christmas time is about family and a great example of that is the family that I shot on location outside of Franklin, Tennessee. It was bitter cold when I landed in Nashville on a Monday morning the week of Christmas, but neither the cold nor my lost luggage could dampen my excitement. I have known the “M” family for 20 years so that made this shoot just a little bit more special. The family home is just a few miles from Leiper’s Fork and nestled in the foothills of Nashville. Everything about the house evoked Christmas and the warmth of family and that is the primary feeling that I wanted to bring out in the photographs. P+D+L… Wishes do come true!
