The old “Dee Farm”, now the Bischoff family’s home, will be featured in the holiday issue of Simply Saratoga. This one is not to be missed- the home is straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting, with its blazing fires and charming holiday decorations. There is also a TON of history to this more than 200 year-old home, which Billy (the homeowner) graciously supplied me with. The new issue hits stands in the next week or two, so be sure to pick up your free copy then!

In the meantime, here are a few detail shots that I took during the shoot last Christmas (no, we did not make Billy decorate his house two months before Christmas…).

(And shout out to Mom, Charlene, since she did a lot of the decorating!)

A simple bundle of pheasant feathers adds a touch of classic country in such an elegant way.

There is a bit of a recurring theme throughout the home’s decorations, which is true to the family’s passion for music.

Also, if you know someone who does a bang-up job at Christmas decorating, I’d love a good tip for next year’s house! You can email me any pics you might have from previous seasons at [email protected] Thanks!
