One thing I love about my job is I am not stuck working at the same location day in and day out. I get to work with clients and pick locations that best match there personality and life. Down fall to this is mother nature. She plays a big part if a session is going to happen and where. I hate to reschedule sessions due to weather issues but the safety and quality of ones session is very importation.
Rebecca’s senior session I had to reschedule almost TWICE due to rain. This month has been majority of rain and thunder storms. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE a good rain shower or thunder storm but when affects one of my clients sessions I get anxious.
Rebecca’s Step Mom Reagen and I were watching the weather hour by hour last week. LUCKILY we had a break in the rain (maybe a 3 hour window) and we HAD to get the session in or there was no other time Rebecca could reschedule. We HAD to make this happen for her! This is one of the biggest moments in a high school seniors life. I was prepared to even shoot in the rain.
THANKFULLY the rain held off. I met Rebecca, her step mom Reagen and her Dad at Maymont Park in Richmond, Va. We started out in the Japanese Garden when the Koi fish were jumping out the water while Rebecca was standing on one of the stepping stones. I was kind of nervous they were going to take one of us out. haha..
Rebecca reminds me a lot like myself when I was in High School. I can definitely relate to her. Can you believe I was not always a girly girl? Rebecca is a sweet down to earth person and she described herself to me as not a girly girl type.
Rebecca picked Maymont to have her senior pictures taken and it was a great choice! After the rain let up the flowers shined bright against those grey skies. The colors were vibrant and I could not have asked for a better afternoon with them.
Good luck to you Rebecca and I wish you the best!
