After delays by the city, rain on multiple days, schedule problems, a broken car window and a gawking crowd, we were at long last able to get Hannah’s water shots taken.
As we told you in our initial blog post about Hannah’s senior shoot, we had intended to get shots of the lovely Miss Hannah playing in the water when we did her first outdoor shoot at World’s Fair Park back in early April. But the city decided this year to put off turning on the fountains because of the severe cold of this winter. When the city eventually turned them on a week or so later, first rain, and then scheduling problems. kept us from getting the shots taken.
It gets better. Monday of last week, everything seemed to come together — great weather, matching schedules and roaring fountains. But as were waiting in the parking lot near the World’s Fair area, a rock came flying down and shattered the driver’s side rear window of the car. Still don’t know where it came from. But, oh, well, we were there and we weren’t going to let anything get in the way of our shoot.
Except maybe people. Even on a Monday at 7 p.m. there were people everywhere at the fountains, so we shot for a while at the other end of the park near the waterfalls, and then came back to the fountains. Though the crowd had thinned out, we still had to dodge kids (and adults), who thought it would be great kicks to jump in front of the camera, beg to have their picture taken and ask a zillion questions.
Still, we managed to get through it and get some really great shots. Hannah continues to impress me as a model. She is just a natural in front of the camera, and I think it shows.
It took us a while to get these, but I think it was worth the wait. Enjoy.
