Graduation day is usually a time of pure joy.


You’ve put in all that work and effort into your degree, so you should be able to just enjoy and savour the day you collect your diploma and can move on in life.

But not Chelsea Whitfield, oh no. Her graduation photo shoot went horribly wrong after she broke her foot while attempting to re-create a fun ‘jumping for joy’ pose. Doh.

The student at Valdosta State University in Georgia was pretty damn excited the day the shoot came. She met with her photographer, Caitlin Ogden, at a common graduation picture area at her school.

Caitlin suggested that Chelsea should do the standard ‘jumping for joy’ pose which many of us have had to face at some point in our school years. So, she took off her shoes and gave it ago.

But when she landed, she instantly regretted her life choices. Despite the agonising pain, Chelsea carried on with the shoot for a while anyway.

When she had to have her injury checked out by the school’s wellness clinic, this photo shoot turned into something completely unexpected.

Caitlin kept snapping away, and caught some great shots of Chelsea being taken away in a wheelchair.

And when she got home from her ordeal, Chelsea had a well deserved drink.

Once it was over, her boyfriend, Cole Ahnberg, posted the series to Reddit and it has since been viewed over two million times.

Speaking to BuzzFeed, Caitlin said that the series of photos were probably so popular because they are ‘relatable’, adding: “I’m just like a normal person that tried to do superhuman things, and it did not work out in my favour.”

You can say that again.
