The Calm Before The Storm {Emma}

Wow. This shoot was an adventure. Most of them are, all in their own unique ways, but this one really takes the cake. If you read my blog regularly you know that I have been fighting the typical evening summer storms a bit lately (ok, every shoot for the last couple weeks). This session was no exception. In fact, it was the worst one to date. It was beautiful when we set out on this shoot, and pretty rapidly we noticed some seriously intense clouds heading our way. We were determined to get these pictures done though, it was the only day Emma could do it. We were wrapping up at one location and had a great location across town we wanted to hit. We decided to jump in the truck and go for it, hoping that we would get lucky since we were going away from the clouds. Boy did we ever get lucky. When we got there the clouds were getting really dark (yet beautiful) and there was lightening and thunder crashing all around us. But, no rain yet. Heaven forbid Glen should get wet (Glen is my camera by the way, yes it is named. I name everything!) It was getting scarier by the moment but there were some great shots I REALLY wanted to get. My assistant decided the heck with this nonsense and she bailed to the truck. It was just me, Emma, Glen, and some ever darkening clouds. We got finished just in time. No sooner did we get the truck doors closed did the bottom purely fall out. It rained cats and dogs, and maybe some pigs and sheep too. When we got back to the farm we had no power. And, on the way home we had a lightening bolt strike so close to the truck that we could all feel the electricity off of it. Sheesh, talk about creepy. Ok. Enough about the great storm of 2012 ;). Let’s talk about Emma. She is just amazing. There are so many great things to say about her. Where to start….she is beautiful, inside and out; so sweet, pure, genuine, funny, silly, entertaining, kind, caring, and did I mention beautiful? I’ve watched Emma grow up for the past 3 years now and I couldn’t be more proud of the young lady she is turning into. I only hope in many MANY 😉 years Hailey will be as great of a kid as Emma is. I hope you guys enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them, massive storm and all! <3BriImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
