When Weather Threatens Your Portrait Session, Carbon Canyon

Family of five walking hand in hand

Rain was in the forecast for the day of our family portrait session. We had two options, reschedule now or wait to see how the day turns out and make the final decision an hour or two before the session. Luckily the rain stopped around noon and our 2:30 session was still on!

The next thing we discussed was how the rain affected the location and if clothing options needed to be adjusted. Make sure you have good shoes (high heels are not a great idea after rain, I'll have a session about that coming soon) and that you are aware that there may be some muddy spots that we will work around.

Thankful we had a great portrait session together! There were a couple of muddy areas but we managed to not let that stop our session and have a good time with lots and lots of smiles.

At the beginning of the session, the youngest had a hard time interacting with me and participating in pictures. She only wanted Mom and gave me a pouty face. Most of the time when this happens I try and focus on the older kids who are ready to take photos so she sees us having some fun and that I am not that scary. Then I bring out the games and fun activities that they can do together and that's when she opened up and had fun.

I hope you enjoy this lovely family portrait session!
