A local deer in Louisiana is becoming increasingly popular among a certain photographer's images for randomly photobombing photo shoots like a scene straight out of a Disney movie.
The doe, which was nicknamed Maggie, recently stopped by to check out a photo shoot by Megan Rion of Imagine That Photography. Rion was capturing photos of one-month-old baby Conner, son of Tiffany and Scott Rogers, at Sam Houston Jones State Park in Moss Bluff when Maggie strolled toward the sleeping baby.
"We had the set up for baby Conner all fixed and we were trying to console him and get him into position while Maggie just strolled up behind us," recalled Rion. To coax the deer to look straight into the camera, her assistant gave the deer an ear of corn.
Maggie the doe has appeared in six different photo shoots since the beginning of summer, Rion said. The deer stays for about five to 15 minutes and then strolls away.
Rion said that she plans to come back to the same spot in hopes that Maggie the deer will show up again.
"She was a rescue drop off at the park, so she has been hand fed for years... parents even request that she come to shoots, but I let them know there's no guarantee," Rion explained.
"She just makes our photo shoots more magical when she does appear," she added.
Rion posted several photos with Maggie the doe on the Imagine That Photography Facebook page.
Meanwhile, a fawn took the limelight in June this year when she ran toward an ongoing photoshoot in Tennessee.
Amber Rogers from Big Dreams Photography recalled taking photos of a family of four 5-year-olds when the fawn photobombed the scene at Henry Horton State Park in Chapel Hill.
"It was totally unplanned," she said. Rogers explained that they had rescheduled this family's shoot twice. Afterwards, they inquired about the fawn.
The park ranger told Rogers that the then one-day-old fawn had a twin, and that it was already showing signs of being tame that they plan to send it to deer reserve to keep it wild. Fawns have poor eyesight and are drawn to movements, the ranger added.
