“I want to wait and book my session when the weather is much better” is something I hear a lot. And I get it… I really do. When you invest a sizeable amount of money, time and effort into commissioning a family photograph that will hang in your home for years to come, its vital to get it right!
Everybody wants the perfect Summer’s day with bright sunshine and clear blue skies. But lets face facts – we can’t control the weather. And actually, I would always choose to take portraits on a less than perfect day with plenty of cloud cover and a hefty breeze!
This gorgeous family were bought a session with me as a birthday gift and travelled over two hours for their shoot. On the day it was dark and cloudy. It rained on and off and it was terribly windy but there was no alternative to re-arrange.
