Ha!! When I think of Kara's session, I can't help but smile and laugh. Her session was originally scheduled for a Saturday morning/afternoon. We headed out to get the fun started and found ourselves at our first location. My lovely model, Kara, looked gorgeous and her hair was straight out of a magazine. Everything was going great for about the first ten minutes and then.....rain! And I am not talking about a light drizzle....oh no. I am referring to a pouring-buckets-drench-you-to-the-bone-soak-you-completely-from-head-to-toe-in-roughly-9-seconds kind of rain!! And there was almost no time to run for cover!! It came on so quickly that there was no avoiding it. We had to grab our stuff and get out of there!! And sweet Kara immediately went over and grabbed my camera bag, trying to help us out, and I looked at her and said, "Save the hair!!" so that she would run as fast as she could to her car! And I grabbed the bag and ran like crazy to the car! The reason it makes me laugh is that I keep picturing my assistant (my lovely mom) running for cover along side me and then trying frantically to get her light stand down and in the back of my car. I had opened the hatch and unlocked the doors remotely while we were running. Since I had my camera in hand, I jumped as quickly as I could into the front seat to avoid having it ruined by the rain. That's when I realized that my mom was struggling to get her gear in and I turned around in my seat to see her getting more and more soaked by the second. And for some reason, all I could do was laugh....hysterically!! I couldn't stop!! I laughed until I was almost crying. And despite being stuck in the rain, my mom was laughing, too!! Fortunately, we had conveniently brought along a couple of towels in preparation for the anticipated "trash the dress" portion of the session. Needless to say, Kara's session was postponed and rescheduled for the following Tuesday. After all that, it actually seemed to turn out for the best though, because the second session day ended up being absolutely beautiful and Kara totally rocked her session!! Check her out!!
Here is the Sneak Peek!!
