For those of you who live in the area, you know our summer was a wet one. At least in our yard, the grass stayed green all summer and didn’t shrivel up into a crispy swath of yellow hay. We’ll take it!

When I met the Patrick family for our session, I was nervous about the rain. But with a forecast of “30% thunderstorms” all day, all summer, we figured we had to just try it. And it worked! The weather was beautiful. Joyner Park was empty and we got down to business.

And then it happened, the sky fell out. We grabbed our things and ran to the car. Photoshoot over. But for 25 minutes? We did a heck of a job. We weren’t exactly able to nail the last pose there but there were such genuine giggles as the rain came down that I can’t help but love it.
