Saturday morning we were set up to do an indoor studio style photo shoot to fill in some gaps to our soon to be published Social Marketing website business. We ended up going outside into our yard as well since the Lilacs were blooming at the same time. That ended up being a nice backdrop to our portraits outside. Both sets went very well and we had some good shots to use so we were very happy with that outcome.
After using some of them we found that we needed some distant shots as well to fit certain areas of the site to come. We went to the river Sunday morning to get some shots there with everything looking nice and green with the grasses and trees in the area. As a bonus the river is being pumped full of water from the damn up north so the water added some more life to the photos as well. This shoot became the better one of the weekend and we ended up getting our homepage shots for the upcoming site. So, it was a good decision from that standpoint.
Near the end of the morning shoot though we got to the truck and packed up all the gear to find that the keys I put into my rear pocket had somehow changed. The clip that held the remote, truck key & misc. keys had somehow lost the truck key during the shoot. We literally spent a good hour scouring the area grass for it with no luck. Then "Karma" came along with a man in a car stopping to see if we needed help. We were happy to have it since the walk would be a long one if we did not find it. He stepped out of his car with his new puppy on a leash and took no more than 10 feet of steps when Kris bent down to pet the cute guy... and right there under the puppies paws was the key we had been looking for all this time.
We gave to puppy a lot of love and a hearty bro hug to the friendly young man who stopped with a lot of thank you's as well. I still have no idea how the key came off and how God put this man and that puppy in front of us because I am sure we would have not found that key otherwise. I am a firm believer that things are put in front of you to help, guide or bless you one way or another... you just have to embrace it. Today all that fell into place and we are very thankful for it. :-)
