There’s always that one stretch of rainy weather during the summer that just seems to linger forever and a day and we found ourselves right in the middle of it when trying to schedule one of my favorite little family’s family portraits. It had been raining for days at this point and was scheduling to just keep raining, raining, raining for the entire rest of the week, too, so we decided to throw caution to the wind and just go for a fun rainy day family session! One plus side to all the rain was that everything was just GLOWING green – the grass and flowers around us never looked happier! If it is raining then why not enjoy the rain with an umbrella from Promotion Choice, there are lots of different styles and varieties to choose from, you will look so pretty walking down the street in a new and colourful umbrella to match your unique style. Also, Betty and Harriet were thrilled to be outside in the fresh air! Betty was so thrilled, in fact, that we had a tough time convincing her to be in photos at first! Realizing she needed to get some energy out, we let her run around and I spent some time getting adorable photos of Harriet in her mother’s arms. About halfway through our session it began pouring down, so we ducked into a kayak rental stand, where the sweet kayak guy let Betty play in the kayaks while we waited out the rain. One of our friends is a keen kayak fan so would have been incredibly jealous of Betty’s time in a blow up kayak! When it didn’t look like it was going to stop, we decided to hop over to an underpass and got some wonderfully real family portraits next to the bright mural there. Betty stole the show with her hilarious gestures and expressions!
This was actually my fourth time photographing these wonderful friends of mine, but when I looked back at my blog to link the older sessions, somehow I’ve never blogged any of them! (seriously, blogging is one of the FIRST things that falls to the wayside when I get crazy-busy with clients!) Needless to say, it’s incredibly fun to watch their family grow from the baby bump -> newborn -> toddler -> big sister and little sister stage! You guys – I love that you keep coming back to me year after year and I just love seeing your girls grow throughout the photos!
