Aaron and Jade's Holiday Photos

Aaron and Jade have been friends of ours for years so when they asked to have holiday pictures taken, we were more than excited! Jade is a student at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and so naturally we found a spot on campus near the horticulture building to snap some fun shots.  I arrived early to hunt for some perfect light for pictures. One of the spots that I loved the most had a little brush obstructing the view so I started clearing it, as any dedicated photographer might do. I knocked a couple dead flower heads out of the way when a young biologist with her collection of bugs walked by. She was grabbing at a couple bugs in the air when she noticed me. We saw each other and froze.

We were immediately embarrassed, me for being caught oddly knocking down dead brush in a well cared for public garden, and she for being caught collecting bugs for her newest project! We quickly moved on, neither acknowledging our awkward encounter. I think I will stick to eco-friendly photography from now on!
