Making the most of a rainy day

We almost rescheduled because of the rain, it had been raining all night and into the day and in Marvin North Carolina it seemed like this had been going on for a month. Instead we decided to meet early in the day when normally the harsh sun would be unforgiving but instead was diffused behind a thick blanket of wet cloud cover. 

When we met up at a local park the rain was reduced to a light drizzle with only a few scattered rain drops on occasion, as if by a miracle.  There was also the perfect spot to shoot in an entrance to a trail that I didn't notice at first. Bright orange, yellow and red leaves blanketed the path and the branches formed a sort of canopy that sheltered my clients and I from the rain for the most part. 

This was a family that found me when I sent out a model call about a year ago. They stuck with me over the many months of constant rescheduling that I unfortunately had to do first because of a car accident and then because of losing my niece whom I was very close to. Despite being forced to wait almost a year for our session, they showed up and were genuinely happy to do so. I wish everyone in the world had that much patience. They were such a pleasure to work with.

The children were absolutely adorable! One was what appeared to be a beautiful fairy princess and the other was a handsome comedian. They had such awesome energy and you could tell that they share a strong bond. I'll let their images tell the rest of the story. Thanks for taking the time to read. Until next time-

It was nice growing up with someone like you – someone to lean on, someone to count on… someone to tell on!
