On insurance challenges, schedules, and knife wielding freaks

The first Jennifer Project photo shoot is this Sunday.  I'm super excited to meet a passel of Jennifers, take some photos, and learn more about these women (and children).  

The schedule is finished.  I have 14 Jennifers scheduled, in 30 minute blocks, starting at 10 a.m.  

The problem is... my location...

I work at a school.  It's an awesome school.  It's beautiful and old and a fabulous place to take photos.  I've gotten permission to use the building for this photo shoot, but... there's an insurance problem.  Who's liable for an accident / fiasco / broken window during the photo shoot?  Me.  And the school requires me to have liability insurance in order to shoot there.

I've made a call to my insurance company and I'm waiting... waiting... waiting... for a response.  Apparently, homeowners / renters insurance sometimes covers such a thing.  

So I have a schedule, I have a location, but I don't have the final "yes" in order to proceed.  It's making me nervous.  I like to plan things.

The other thing I've been thinking about... and I know it's wildly paranoid... is .... what happens if one of the Jennifers is a knife wielding FREAK.  OR, even worse, some freaky dude who has masqueraded as a Jennifer and is also a knife wielding FREAK.

That would just... generally suck.

But I have a plan in place.

All we need is to get the insurance stuff sorted and then we'll have a venue...

So you have a plan for dealing with a freaky, knife-wielding dude who is masquerading as a Jennifer?

Man, you do like to plan!

Good luck, Jen!
