i had a rough weekend.
after a photo session on sunday with a really sweet family, i came home and found that somehow, one of my memory cards was corrupted, the images were damaged, and i couldn't recover them. it was my worst nightmare realized : half of the photos from the day were gone.
i always rotate memory cards throughout sessions (the way i've read you're supposed to) because of this unlikely possibility and so many times it seemed pointless to do but i am so glad i continued to take those preventative measures because holy moly, can you imagine if all the pictures were gone?!
after a sleepless night and no success in recovering the pictures, i sent an e-mail to the family explaining the situation and thankfully they were understanding, gracious, and kind. i've still got guilt on my conscience, even though i couldn't have done anything to change the situation, but my biggest problem is trusting my camera and gear again! i'm constantly on edge while shooting now.
not to mention the timing. that was my first of five sessions this week!
i had a fun shoot this afternoon with a lovely soon-to-be-graduate and breathed a huge sigh of relief when i got home and all the pictures were successfully transferred to my computer but my nerves are still a little shot from all my worrying beforehand haha.
may be another glass of wine kind of night...
