These gorgeous expectant parents answered my call out earlier this year for a request for some couples and families expecting babies, to help me build my portfolio for maternity photos.
We booked this date weeks and weeks ago - just assuming as it was still summer than we would be getting a lovely golden sunset. Apparently mother nature had other ideas! I checked the forecast and radar and I reckoned that we had about 20 minutes before the rain hit - and I think I was pretty close in my prediction! But those stormy skies provided those subdued tones. I do love a dark, stormy sky to add another dimension and some atmosphere to the session.
In my mind, I was imagining some gorgeous rain drenched images at the end of the shoot when the rain finally hit - however I did not foresee it hitting us with such force and the very quick temperature drop that came with it! We grabbed a couple of quick photos in the rain before both humans and camera equipment got too wet and cold! It was a very abrupt end to our session. Despite the much quicker time than I would usually take, we got a great variety of photos from this session. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as we enjoyed taking them!
