I know everyone was watching the weather last week since it was calling for snow. I was so excited about our area getting 10 + inches of snow. Of course on Saturday I woke up to ICE instead of snow… ugh. The ice on the trees looked beautiful but it also made me worry about losing power. I started charging my camera batteries just incase I lost power. Because I had this amazing shoot on Sunday and a power outage was not going to stop me.
Now Saturday was cold , windy and sleeting all day but it was nothing compared to Sunday. That morning I got up and de-ice my car. Now that was a struggle since it was a big ice-cube. I got my camera bag and packed it with tons of hot hands ! I knew we were going to need them. My wonderful husband drove me to Courtney’s house in Edenton . When I got to Courtney’s house she was almost dressed and ready. I open up all the hot hands and started putting them in our boots and jackets. The sun was shining bright but it was still freaking cold. The wind was gusting around us making it feel even colder. Now I was really disappointed about not getting snow , but the ice looked BEAUTIFUL in the sun. Courtney’s purple gown look magnificent against the icicles in the tree limb background. Courtney was a trooper … she did incredible job dealing with the elements.
A BIG THANK YOU to Courtney for braving the cold with me. Here are some of my favorite images from Sunday’s Ice Storm Session !! ENJOY !!
