When I decided to do Christmas mini sessions and needed a model family for my ad, I knew exactly who to call, the Chiarelli family. I had the privilege of shooting Rachel, Tyler and baby Lucy at a newborn session in 2015. I was shooting at the Country Cove Christmas Tree farm in Murfreesboro, a perfect setting for Christmas minis. It was in early October, so it was still quite hot out and trying to look cozy on a warm day is not always fun, but we made the best of it. On the way in, both Rachel and I noticed the beautiful cotton fields. It has been a bucket list of mine to shoot in a cotton field, call it the Mississippi girl in me. Rachel said the same thing so after we finished at the farm, we drove to the cotton field to get some extra fall photos. I only wish cotton fields bloomed all year long because I would shoot there all the time.
