I now have absolute proof the weather doesn’t make or break a family photo session…
There was simply no rescheduling for this crew. Between schedules of three different families and crazy bookings of a CRAZY photographer, our session had to stick. When the pouring rain and freezing cold threatened to ruin our day, we called a bazillion different indoor locations in hopes of finding a warmer and less wet place to shoot. BUT, when life gives you lemons….
Instead of hiding out in someone’s house or canceling our session, we figured we’d just go for it anyway. Off to the park we went…
in the pouring rain….
and freezing cold wind.
Believe it or not, the first handful of shots were taken through a Ziploc baggie. I was trying to preserve the life of my camera and still get some shots. Somehow, for a few short minutes, the clouds parted and some rays of sunshine poked through.
and we said our prayers of thanks.
I have to say, the kids were all troopers. They had chattering teeth and major goosebumps, but were still able to show me a couple of grins through the madness. Even poor little Sam forgave us for a split second and showed me some teeth. Thank you, Sam.
