Rainy Family SessionStockton Springs, Maine
With rain in the forecast, we were unsure whether to reschedule or not, but Sarah told me her kids LOVE to play in the rain! So we decided to take the risk, and play in the rain if it showed up. It was only sprinkling when the family and I first met up at the beach, so we thought maybe we would get lucky. But little did we know it would indeed rain, but after this session I no longer see rain during a session as a bad thing. We embraced it, the kids had fun, and the photos came out AMAZING, I must say so myself!
For this session, I already knew the family pretty well as I had previously photographed the two youngest boys births several years ago and have continued to capture their family throughout the years. We planned ahead of time and coordinated their outfits together. Sarah did most of the styling and she really knew how to match colors, patterns and styles just as I was hoping for! The bright, bold colors were so perfect on top of the corduroy, fur and sweater textures. This is the most perfect example of wonderfully coordinated family outfits!
This family photo shoot was mostly unposed and informal. I wanted to approach family photos in a relaxed and natural way. I gave them prompts here and there to give the kids short activities that would produce authentic images of real and fun memories shared together.
Towards the end of our session, after running around in some light rain, a double rainbow appeared above the water and we could clearly see the start and end! The kids found some seaweed and made natural water squirters with them! Enjoy these photos from our time together.
