Just Another Shoot

You can't tell by looking at the smiling family in the photo, but this shoot got very scary about 60 seconds later. The park we were at ended up being the unplanned destination of a police chase. We heard horrible screeching, metal crunching, stuff slamming, and then sirens.

We watched as a car tumbled and rolled it's way next to our parked cars. Then men jumped out of it and took off running. Then officers came from every direction. Before I could figure out what was going on, cops were everywhere, shouting at us to leave. There must've been 20 police cars. I saw lights. I saw men running. I saw guns.

It was insanity.

Before that, our photo shoot lasted about two minutes. However, it was a great two minutes before we all hightailed it out of there for our lives.

Photography isn't a very safe career choice, I guess.Tibbets-14_web
