Also known as "Family Pictures in a Pasture at 8am in 40 degree Weather Wearing High Heels Whilst Pregnant"
At 6:45 am she and her husband woke their slumbering children and dressed them like porcelein dolls. By 7:15 they were rolling down GA-400 at 20 miles an hour with the rest of northern Fulton County towards the city of Atlanta. At precisely 8:00am on the dot they pulled into the (dirt) drive that led to the polo fields (read: dirt) on the far side of town. The car thermostat read 45 degrees. She rolled up her trouser jeans and delicately stepped out into the icy air to retrieve both her children, a diaper bag and her beloved red velvet peep toe high heels.
A lens-laden photographer greeted them as they made their way down the long drive (read: damp dirt road) out to the polo field itself where half a dozen thoroughbreds trotted through the morning haze towardsthem as if to say good morning.
"How lovely," she thought, "what an enchanted place for pictures."
Her first mistake was the red velvet peep toe high heels. Polo Fields is not a place for heels, high or low. Especially not when the ground is quite soft from last night's rain.
Her second mistake was the choice of cream-colored leggings for her 10 month old daughter. Putting a crawler down at Polo Fields in cream-colored leggings guarantees they are soon covered in red Georgia clay. She would now be holding her daughter all morning long.
Her third mistake was telling the photographer she would be happy to climb down into the creek bed if it would make for a good shot. Did you remember that she was in fact, quite pregnant? And wearing red velvet peep toe high heels.
