There are longer days, columned entrances, front porches, watered plants, and wildflowers. Friends and family will be visiting for the next few weekends or so and I will enjoy every bit of it until the summer is whisked away from all of us! Let’s try not to think about that yet though!
In Florence, Alabama, the houses are beautiful in their age, vibrant green trees shade the roads, antiques are everywhere, music roots run deep, enjoying time by the water is a huge part of life, and the restaurants prove to be delicious. Despite working in the craziness of fashion, things are somehow slower here. Even still, no matter how wonderful the place may be, when one is away from his or her love, there will always be blues in the South!
This antebellum home, the Neil House, is one of the oldest houses in Tennessee, and it is absolutely incredible. It is currently being renovated, and the finished product will be breathtaking. Big time thanks to Clark Shaw at Casey Jones Village for so kindly letting us shoot there, even though the restoration won’t be complete until fall of next year. I hope you love looking at these images as much as I enjoyed shooting them!
