Based on how calm and collected J looks, you would never guess that I took these photos after we found the most gigantic spider I've ever seen outside of a zoo sitting inches away from her, would you? And of course I handled it all with grace and poise like my lovely model is displaying here. Okay, so maybe I screamed like a little girl and yelled "SPIDER! MOVE!" in a panicked frenzy, swatted it into the lawn with a flip flop, and then got shivers every few minutes for the next fifteen minutes. But, hey, at least I managed to get it away! Holding one end of a flip flop and having a huge hairy spider scurrying like crazy on the other is much closer than I ever intended to get to a giant arachnid so I'm proud of myself for overcoming my fear for a few brief moments. Anyway, enough about that. I'm getting chills just thinking about it. Check out this lovely little preview from this morning's session.
