Now that we're a couple weeks into Fall and the weather has decided to take a dive, this session was like a little goodbye to summer. This session almost didn't happen, but we're so glad it did. When Angie called to check our availability, she mentioned buying white dresses for all of her girls. She really wanted a summer session with the girls in their dresses, and it looked like that weekend—the last weekend in September—would be the last possible chance.
Session day came along and it was a drizzly, chilly, mess of a day. To us, an overcast day is great as long as it's not raining. While we love sun flare and the right kind of sunlight, the images from an overcast day are—believe it or not—absolutely fabulous. But mom really wanted the sunlight and a warm day, so we decided to cancel the session and watch for a better weekend.
Long story short, I was able to convince mom that the images would turn out great with the overcast day and white dresses, as long as it wasn't too cold for the kids, and as soon as we decided to give it another go the chilly weather turned around for us. Dan and I got to meet such a beautiful family. I can't imagine having five kids, but the patience and love we saw during that hour was truly inspiring.
I have more images I want to post, since I know Angie is looking for certain shots, but I'll keep some a secret for now. :)
Meet the R family...
I have a fetish for the footsies. Dan kindly obliges my fetish. This was his view:
This was my view:
A huge thanks to Todd and Angie for jumping in so quickly when we were so unsure of the weather, and trusting us to capture their beautiful family doing what they love to do. It was a great way to say goodbye to the summer.
