Outdoor locations add a lot of variables to the long list of things to consider when performing a suspension. Will the weather cooperate, what if you forget something, how far are you going on foot, along with many other things that have to be taken into account while planning it. However, when all of those pieces come together for it; you have beautiful weather, that perfect location, and a great group of people, the experience makes it worth all the effort.

These photos are courtesy of Jesse Rumsey and Kelsie who were two of the five people suspended that day by ihung suspension team. This was their third time suspending together, and it looks like it was a great experience for both of them.

Having someone to share in the excitement of suspending is such wonderful feeling; I am sure it means a lot to both of them. You can tell by the looks on their faces that Jesse and Kelsie thoroughly enjoyed themselves. When describing how she felt, Kelsie said that this suspension was a very cleansing and healing moment for her life. Everyone has differing reasons and reactions with suspension, and it’s nice to know that this one had such a positive impact on her.

I want to thank these guys for taking the time to send pictures in for us. Jesse has been wonderful to talk with, and was so helpful in getting pictures and information for this. He put me in touch with Kelsie, which gave me the opportunity to learn a little about her as well. It is always such a pleasure to meet and talk to people who clearly love suspension. They both seemed really excited about the ones they have done so far, and they should. These are fantastic photos capturing a great moment in both of their lives.
