Why We Kinda Like Shooting Family Sessions in the Rain...

Contrary to popular belief, sessions in the rain can actually be more fun and more flattering.

 Here are 5 reasons why:

  1. The park will be EMPTY.  Nothing’s worse than having a horde of tourists or a distracting jogger smack dab in the background of your beautiful family photo.  A rainy day session guarantees we’ll be alone in the park, which means no crowds to navigate and no waiting for the popular locations.

  2. You’ll have your pick of locations… but not just because of the lack of crowds.  Bright sun = big shadows, which means we have to be selective about locations to avoid unflattering light.  The soft lighting you get when there’s cloud cover is flattering no matter where the sun is. Because we won’t have to worry about placing you in the right place for the sunlight, we’ll be able to use any angle, location, and background you want.

  3. Umbrella shots can be cute AF.  When you think of the umbrella as an accessory, the possibilities are limitless.  Clear ones look fun without being distracting, little kid ones are a-dor-a-ble, and warm colored ones (yellow, orange), can actually be used to cast a flattering warm-light glow on faces.  Throw some little kid galoshes in there and you have some very priceless moments.

  4. Huddling under umbrellas leads to authentically wonderful smiles.

  5. Puddles - how much fun will the little one(s) have jumping in them?  Chances are giving them permission to tromp around in the rain will open up natural adorable smiles pretty fast, which means no warm up time at the beginning getting used to the camera.
