I hadn’t seen Preston in almost a year, but as he greeted me at the door – I knew he remembered the connection we once had. He played coy – holding on to his mom’s leg, but he was just toying with me I knew. Because I was keenly aware, that when his mom left the room – he’d be flirting with me again – just like the last time. What can I say – one year olds dig me.
Since we are no longer specializing in children and family photography, (Preston’s mom had a gift certificate from way back when folks – don’t go thinkin we changed our minds! 🙂 ) I’m not sure when Preston and I will run into one another again. But I know if we do – he’ll remember the hour we spent together that cold dreary Sunday and he’ll think to himself – “there is my … Oh look, a butterfly.”
Enjoy Preston W.!!
This is why I should not be photographing kids – I’m going to let them have whatever they want in order to have them sit or smile for photos. That’s a pencil Preston has. See. I cannot be trusted. Your kid wants candy? Forget it – I’m giving him some. A pony? I’m telling him I know Santa personally and it will be on his sleigh. Bribery works people. And I’m not afraid to use it. You’ve been warned.
I love kids and their emotions. These were all in a matter of seconds.
Preston – I will miss my little buddy. Keep me in mind for senior pics hot stuff! XOXO
