I get to meet a lot of really sweet, interesting people in my line of work. A few weekends ago, my husband and I got the opportunity to travel to Winslow, AR for a session with the Petray family. Bart and Pam Petray, who own Top O' the Mount Farm, wanted family photos before their son, Blake, left for basic training in the USAF. Along with their horses and dog, Buddy (who is 100% part of the family), we shot at their home, then drove out to their pasture and finished up at sunset. The sun setting over the mountains and fields was gorgeous! I'm still awestruck.
The Petrays are some of the sweetest people I have ever worked with. They cooked my husband and I dinner before the shoot, which consisted of grass-fed beef from their farm, fresh vegetables, and cookie cake for Bart's birthday. Not only was the food delicious, but they made us feel like we were a part of their family. We had such a great time! I hope I get the chance to work with this family again, and I'm sure my husband won't mind tagging along either as long as there's more free food ;) .
Meet The Petray Family: Bart, Pam, Blake, and Buddy!
