This was my first session with this sweet family. I meet so many amazing people through photography. We had to reschedule due to weather our initial planned date. On the second date, our session got cut short due to a pit bull biting the dad on the hand. Crazy story right?
So, we started walking down the trail to start our session and dad said he had to run back to the car for his keys. We started the session with mom & their little girl. While shooting, we heard some dogs growling and barking like it was two dogs fighting. We stopped and commented that it didn’t sound good. We continued our shoot and dad came walking back with his arm in the air, holding his hand. Blood was running down his hand and arm due to the dog bite. He continued to tell us he was attacked by two dogs in the parking lot and the owners fled the scene in a hurry. I told them that we could rescheduled and to get dad to the hospital as soon as possible to get treated. Dad had to get a few stitches in his hand and was like new by our third planned date.
SO happy he was okay and that nothing worse happened. It was so scary in the moment. The dog owners were never found but sad to know these people didn’t stick around to help. The good news is…everyone is okay and these photos came out AMAZING!! Word of advise, always be aware of your surrounding, you just never know. Also, mom’s dress is from Joyfolie.
