We met Travis, Christina, and their beautiful little girl Justyce down in Decatur, Tennessee one Saturday afternoon before Christmas for some family photos on their property. Christina and Travis have a very busy life! Travis just recently retired from the military after 24 years of service. There seriously just are not enough “thank yous” for our military personnel, active or retired. Travis finally has facial hair after all those years, and takes growing his beard very seriously! Christina is in school and spends every free moment being Mommy. Justice loves dance, specifically ballet. The Smiths reside in Middle Tennessee during the week, but come home to East Tennessee many weekends to work on their property or spend time with extended family.
Travis and Christina are in the process of clearing some land on the lower end of the property, and will start building their dream home soon. They wanted some photos right in front of where their home will be, then this time next year, they want photos in front of their new home. The views from the upper part of the land are incredible with mountains in the background! The lower end, where their home will be, has large trees and rolling hills. They already have a porch swing hanging from a large tree in front of where the home will be built. We used it for a few of the photos. It was chilly, and Justice was a real trooper for hanging out and helping me hold my gear. She was a great lens holder!
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Smith family and getting family photos for them! We hope to go back later this year and get photos of them infant of their new home.
