Embracing the Rain
"I love the rain. I love how it softens the outlines of things. The world becomes softly blurred, and I feel like I might melt into it." - Hanamoto Hagumi
It's no secret that I love the sun, and obsessed with chasing light. But not everyone knows that I also love the rain. A couple years ago, I did a rain session with my friend Christy's daughters. We planned it and then waited for the right weather to hit, and then I called her and said, "It's go time." We met at a park and I photographed her adorable kids playing in the rain. It was so much fun.
Last fall, one of my favorite sessions was for a couple who decided to go ahead with our planned time, even though we knew it would probably rain. To me, it was such a romantic session, and the rain just added to it.
That wasn't exactly the situation for this family portrait session at Harlinsdale Farms. They were hoping to avoid the rain, but mother nature had other plans. We were able to get in a few photos before the rain came, but then once it did, I couldn't help but to wrap my camera in a poncho, hand these sweet kids some umbrellas (I always keep these in my car because they still let light in), and to keep shooting.
And I have to say, I'm not really sorry it rained. These two kids are just so perfectly adorable with the colorful little umbrellas and those smiles. It's just one more thing that I absolutely love about kids this age...they really know how to embrace the rain.
