In the early part of the summer this lovely family contacted me about taking their family pictures. After some chatting and planning we landed on the perfect location, the beach! Well if you are from Florida or have ever been here in the summer you know what happens every afternoon….Thunderstorms. Leading up to our session date we had a really long patch of dry days so I thought for sure we were golden…and then on the afternoon of our session, the radar blew up with storms.
So we reschedule for 2 weeks later…dun dun dunnnn. Rain again.
Soooo we selected another date and as we were getting into the car to head to the beach wouldn’t you know, it started pouring!!
At this point we were either going to have to choose another location that could be photographed earlier in the day, reschedule to the fall when the storms are less frequent or go in the morning. At. Sunrise. Can I just mention to you that I am not a morning person. Like, I don’t mean that I like to sleep…like my brain doesn’t operate unless there is daylight. So I tell you this to illustrate to you my desire to give this family perfect pictures. I sacrificed sleep y’all..and drank 3 Diet Dr. Peppers on the way to the beach.
Sometimes it becomes necessary to step out of your comfort zone and do something new. I am so glad I got over the early alarm clock and forced myself to venture to the beach in the wee hours of the morning. Not only did we get a gorgeous sunrise, but they killed it! I mean look at all of these stunning images! This is just a sampling…you can view their entire gallery here.
Has it been awhile since you updated your gamily portraits? Get in touch…I would love to create images like these of you and your family to cherish. You can get started planning by scheduling a consultation to go over your vision.
