What to do in the case of rain for your portrait session

"A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost." - Marion Garretty 

This session had to be rescheduled due to rain last week, but oh my goodness, did they get a beautiful day on Saturday.  There just isn't more perfect weather than that.  Too bad it didn't hold out for Sunday...when I had to reschedule another family session. I loved playing with these sweet sisters in the gorgeous sunshine for their family photo session. 

I often get the question about what happens if it rains on the day of a scheduled session, or if there is other types of bad weather.

First of all, if it’s just cold (or even snowy!), I would suggest we go ahead with the session as planned and you make sure you have warm clothes, toboggans, gloves, etc for your family.  These can be lovely in photos.

If it’s raining, there are a few options we can consider:

  • We can reschedule to the closest available session date convenient for both your family and myself. In the fall when it’s busiest, I usually have a few dates designated as rain dates.  Other times of year, I can typically fit you in pretty close to your original date.

  • If it’s not raining horribly, I have been known to shoot in the rain.  I have lovely clear umbrellas and this can be a fun, different take on a session.

  • We can change the location from an outdoor spot, to somewhere indoor.  A great option is always your home, as that highlights your family's life at this moment in time.  Another option is the Factory at Franklin, though they charge a $50 permit fee that you would be responsible for paying.

So there are a few options, but most clients end up rescheduling if there is rain and that's perfectly fine.

The only thing I ask is that we wait fairly close to the day of the day of the photo session to make a decision.  The weather around here can change so suddenly...I don't want to reschedule a session too early just to have it turn into a beautiful day.  

Too bad the weather can't always been as perfect as it was for this session.
