The good news....my favorite model came over to my house last week for some practice shots. It was a beautiful evening, the light was gorgeous and I couldn't be happier with how the pictures turned out. I had spray painted a cruddy old bike earlier this summer and finally found the perfect opportunity to sneak it into a photo shoot.
The bad news....Kayla and I aren't the only ones who have been enjoying this pretty spot lately.
It would seem we have a bear on the farm. I won't go into details, but I found the evidence, and The Farmer in all his outdoorsy wisdom confirmed, that a bear is indeed hanging out under the apple tree in the background of these pictures.
Now yes, we do live in the country, but not that far out in the country. It's not like we back up to a national wilderness or Jellystone Park. We have deer by the bushel, coyotes, foxes, and on one occasion, a moose. But never a bear....that I know of anyway.
Normally, my gut reaction to this type of situation would involve villagers, torches and pitchforks, but I'm trying not to over react. My hubby claims Yogi will run away if he hears me coming.
Um, hello? Meadowbrook Farmer? Have we met? That's not going to be good enough to get me out in the woods again.
Actually, there's a small, very small, part of me that wouldn't mind a glimpse of him...from a distance of course.
But for now, I'll just hope my hubby is available to chaperone any future photo shoots, and I'll also be keeping my doors locked.
Because everyone knows...bears can open doors.
And Kayla? I don't know about you, but I think these pictures were worth the risk.
You're gorgeous, girl!
