Grand Island, NE
As you can probably tell from my website and blog....I'm a baby photographer. Anything baby related, I'm game! But it wasn't always that way. I actually started my business doing Weddings, Engagements, and Senior portraits. However, it's been AWHILE since I was hired to photograph any of the above.
In July, the lovely Miss Deanna and her mom contacted me about possibly doing Senior photos. I was very excited! A little nervous, as it had been several years since I had done a fun Senior Session, but excited nonetheless.
We made a plan for the end of August to do 2 days worth of photos....one with a friends horse and the next day with everything else. However, day one didn't quite go as planned and the friends horse didn't seem to want photos taken. Within a few minutes of arriving she had the horse ready, got on its back, and it promptly bucked her off, stomped around and trampled her. Not a single photos taken and I was terrified that she had been seriously injured.
Luckily, she walked away with a cracked tooth and a few scrapes and bruises. Her make-up ruined from tears, clothes torn, and covered in dirt. It was definitely the end of the photo session, and not what any of us had planned. So we rescheduled for October to give her some time to heal.
When October rolled around we had one day, two locations, and several changes of clothes to get done....all before she had to be at the Homecoming dance that evening. Phew! It was definitely a whirlwind. But the day went perfectly....a better trained horse was used....and the photos came out amazing.
