This has become one of my favorite photos of 2015. And it's a shot that almost didn't happen. We had been watching the weather all week leading up to the photo shoot. And I must have hit refresh a hundred times to check on the weather the day of. But the weather seemed like it was going to break an hour and a half before the shoot. So we decided to give it a go.
As we were walking from their house to the beach there wasn't a drop of rain falling. And boom, the minute the camera comes out and we start shooting... the rain started to sprinkle. And that meant two things...
1. No time to take time to connect with the one year old little girl.
Luckily, the one year old little girl and her mom and dad were so relaxed and easy going. It also helped that her aunt came along on the photo shoot which the little girl loved making for some great photographs.
2. If we were going to get any of the session in, we had to quickly shoot through each set up.
Once it started to sprinkle, it didn't stop. In fact, it started to sprinkle harder. Again, the family was great. Super relaxed. Super go-with-the-flow. But even with these amazing people, you have to know your camera and settings because there was simply no time to "take the time to get your camera settings down." It was a get the camera and go photo shoot. In all, I think we only had about 15 to 20 minutes to get all of the shots completed. And you know what, it was a blast. The location was amazing. And we made some amazing photographs!
