So I set out today to take some family self portraits. It’s around 3pm and I’m hoping for some nice light and relatively decent weather. The morning was pretty nice out, 40’s and even a little sunshine here and there, so I thought I might head out with my little project.
Well… For whatever insane reason we thought it would be find to bring the dogs along. (Toddler, tripod, pups… What could go wrong? After all my friends Mirka & Filip do it all the time, right? Check out her Wedding Photography site Here). My 2yo daughter wants to bring her little baby doll stroller (add about twice as much walking time because that makes her go so slowly) sure… why not?
Well, as soon as we step out the door it starts drizzling. Yay! LOL
But we keep walking, rain here is so light you can barely feel it most of the time. I find a semi suitable location (about a half mile closer to the one we were planning for) and try and get all set up. Put up the tripod, hook up the camera while husband is wrangling up the toddler and dogs. Weather is starting to turn and I totally can’t feel my fingers anymore. Perfect.
Long story short. We really didn’t get very many photos! It was cold and rainy and WINDY. Grabbed a few test shots and called it a day. Headed home and it REALLY starts to rain… And hail… And SNOW… It was just crazy LOL!
After a much needed hot cup of coffee, I decided to check out what we managed to capture… I must say, I enjoyed these a LOT more than I thought I would. Hope you do too! 😉
Next time I might try to smile more hahaha
