From scratches to ants, this mid-summer couples shoot had begun with an unexpected challenge. The conservation area we had mapped out for our fun turned out to be INFESTED with red ants. We tried, desperately, to persevere through the creepy, crawly, biting monsters... but poor puppy Freckles was getting bit, and anytime we stopped to take a photo, we were all covered. Thus moved our setting, but not our moods. Pup went home to air conditioning, and we had a blast in the afternoon sun.
