Singin' in the Rain. {Family Photography | Twin Cities, Minneapolis St. Paul, MN}

I have had the worst luck with weather this season.  But I've had the BEST luck with wonderful, beautiful, fun families this season!

Back in June, this family had scheduled their family portraits with me.  Several rainouts and reschedules later, it was now October.  We made our plans and came up with a vision I was SO excited about.  The date of their session came.  We met at my photography studio in Burnsville, Minnesota and had a quick consultation and started to head out the front door.

It started raining.

I suppressed a mild panic attack and stood there for a moment staring at the water falling from the sky.  I was willing to go for it but asking one's clients, who are dressed to the nines, to pose in the rain and cold is a but much, I know.  Then this lovely mother said brightly, "Let's just go out anyway."

So we did.  And it was fabulous.  I knew they would be.  It was cold and cloudy but they were as warm and delightful as people can be.  This little boy was so full of fun and sweetness I can honestly tell you that nobody in his company could possibly notice what kind of weather was happening.  In the end, a little rain didn't matter in the least.

Anyway - pictures.  They wanted a vintage feel, and when she described their first set of outfits we decided to do an urban setting - which ended up being necessary because it was a great way to keep them covered and out of the rain!
After a little singing in the rain we headed back to my studio and did the second half of the session in the field out back, which was filled with the most perfect colors.

Many, many thanks to this family for sticking it out, enduring the cold and for their wonderful vision for their session, not to mention the fun and great conversation!

And thank YOU for looking.  For session details and to see my complete portfolio, click here.
