Since most of us want to capture the important events of our lives in a photo session, many choose to take pictures with animals around. But with friendly four-legged companions all around, you never know what’s coming. Dogs, cats, and even belugas tried to photobomb shooting sessions in the funniest ways, but this time it was a goofy horse that stole the spotlight.
When Phil and Amanda, a young couple from Cincinnati, Ohio, asked their cousin, Kristen Zaffiro, for a maternity shoot, they made it clear that they wanted their beloved horses around. But few people know that one of the horses will eventually “ruin” their session in the most epic way.
“We tried taking photos two other times, and it was pouring rain, but on Memorial Day we finally got together,” the photographer shared. “We had to do this shoot because the doctors kept saying Amanda could give birth any day!”
“The horses were inquisitive when I held out my camera, and one almost knocked me off the ladder,” said Zaffiro. “So I tried to set up the lighting situated, and the horses were very nosy with the camera and me. That’s when I said you could at least smile for me! So when it seemed to me he laughed, I laughed too, that’s when he really carried on and on. In fact, he was actually smiling when I told him to set the goofy mood.”
Everyone, including Buckshot, had so much fun during the photoshoot, but it was only after Zaffiro decided to share some photos online that she realized his snaps were breathtaking.
“This photo session… I laughed so hard! Who knew when I told THIS horse to smile? He would! Best maternity session ever,” he wrote in a currently viral post!
