When two sides of a family come together from three different states and there’s 100% chance of thunderstorms during the only time they can gather for their extended family photo session — you shoot the entire session on their front porch (which the builders clearly designed to be a mini outdoor photography studio). And you have an amazing time, even as the rain falls harder and harder. And you get amazing portraits, regardless of the weather.
Because this family was so much fun, and had so much fun together, you’d never know squeezing into that porch hadn’t been their plan all along. See for yourself! The teasing, inside jokes, and good-natured ribbing among all the siblings and siblings-in-law was top-notch. They kept me laughing the entire time.
The littlest guy seemed kind of concerned about my camera, and about the fact that I was standing in the pouring rain to take his picture….
See what I mean about all the happiness?!
What a fun morning!
