I had the best time with The Preston Family. Marcia and Emily are absolutely stunning. Joe and Joey had us cracking up the entire time. It was a great way to spend a summer evening. As we were getting everything in order and just as I was about to snap the first image, I saw everyone scatter through my camera’s lens… and a few screams too. Apparently what we didn’t realize was that we were standing next to a HUGE hornets nest that was hidden on the side of the bridge nearby. The next thing I hear is Marcia saying (with a smile and a laugh I might add), “Well, I just got stung so we better hurry just in case my face swells up”. YIKES! Thankfully, no swelling occurred and we were sure to stay clear of that section of the bridge. Everything from there on out was easy and we had a mellow session.
It seems like there is never enough time in the day anymore. Families are so busy and always on the go and for the Preston’s it is no different. You could tell they loved just being around each other, hanging out and taking full advantage of their time together. It was very evident that they all adore each other. They were always on board with whatever instructions I gave them. They didn’t let a little thing like 90-degree August heat get them down. They were all smiles and laughs the entire time. At the end of their session Marcia informed me that it had been … let’s just say, many years since the last time they had a family photography session. This is something they’ve had on their agenda for some time now. It was truly an honor that they chose me to photograph them and tell their story through my camera.
I have so many favorites from their session. With a family this beautiful and photogenic it’s hard not to. I wanted to share just a few with you all. Without further adieu, I present to you The Preston Family! Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
