Published by Globe Pequot, the book features accompanying essays by author Eric D. Lehman.
"A Connecticut Christmas" is a photographic journey celebrating classic New England traditions, beauty, spirit, and community surrounding the holiday. The images range from light displays to decorated churches and inns, private homes, festivals, carolers, town greens, and picturesque villages. There is also an event and location listing.
Davis, based in Chester, began her career in the visual arts 30 years ago as a cameraperson, editor, and producer of documentaries. She has been a professional photographer since 2000, specializing in architectural and landscape architectural photography.
Celebrated chef, author and Connecticut resident Jacques Pépin has offered his recommendation of the book, saying, "'A Connecticut Christmas' is a sentimental journey through the lore of Connecticut and makes you want to sing Irving Berlin's 'White Christmas.' The beautiful pictures celebrate the marvelous diversity, beauty, and spirit of the Nutmeg State ... this heartwarming book makes you smile."
