Typically when I approach an outdoor family photo session with conditions like we faced with this family, I may be nervous and a little doubtful of the outcome. It was threatening rain, cloudy, windy and pretty chilly but we decided to continue on with the session.
BOY AM I GLAD WE DID.
You want to know my opinion of the outcome? PURE magic.
This family is no stranger to my camera. I have worked with them numerous times and each time gets better than the last. They are lake people who have a cottage that they visit in the summer time so when I suggested a lake, mom was all in. They have also spent time living in Seattle so when we spoke about the clouds, she didn’t shy away. In a weird way, this day and this location seemed to capture their essence more than the times before. It was like they felt in their element and let their personalities shine. I enjoyed my time with them and am so excited with the way these turned out.
Here are a few of my favorites (dead fish and all).
