One of the things I look forward to every Christmas are the lovely outdoor decorations at my neighbor's house (Vinny and Cheryl Georgeoff).
This year, I drummed up the courage to knock on their door and ask to photograph them.
It went something like this...
"Hi neighbor, I know we've never met, but I've been stalking your home for years. Would it be ok if I took a few hundred photos and share them on my website?"
Luckily, they were very nice and said yes!
Also, as luck would have it, the morning I knocked on their door we had our first snowfall.
I thought about dusting the snow off their gorgeous vignettes, but decided it was too pretty to mess with.
The following picture was one that I shot at the very last minute and I think it's my favorite.
To me, it says "Michigan Christmas".
I could have snapped pictures all day long. They do such an amazing job of incorporating a lot of decor while keeping the overall look simple.
This home is located in a golf course community, yet it feels like a home in the northern Michigan woods. This little bunny looks like he just crawled out of the little hole in that tree.
Thank you, Vinny and Cheryl, for allowing me to share your beautiful home.
And, for giving me something to look forward to each year.
