Amanda was the best. I mean she was a serious trooper for her senior pictures. All day her mom and I texted back and forth about the weather. Should we try to make it work? The forecast looked like it was going to clear up. It was warm out, and there were moments where the sun even started to peek out of the clouds. As the time got closer for Amanda to start her hair and makeup appointments we decided we were going to do the shoot that evening. As I drove to the session the skies grew darker and darker. By the time I pulled into the parking lot sheets of rain were coming down. Oh no, we made the wrong call. That happens sometimes, we just have no way to correctly predict the weather.
When Amanda and her mom arrived at the session the rain had slowed down, and I asked them if they would mind skipping the getting to know each other chat and jump right into pictures. They were game! We ran out to the boardwalk and snapped away. We jumped back into the car with Amanda's mom right as another cloud opened up. And on it went for the rest of the evening. Waiting for pockets of time when the rain would hold off and we could jump out of the car and get another set of images. By the last outfit the clouds had moved out and the sun started to peek out again. And I love how these images turned out. I love the clouds and the rich colors. And can we talk about how absolutely stunning Amanda looks in her pointe shoes in the rain?!
Not only does Amanda look absolutely gorgeous, but she was so confident the whole session. When I asked her if it was bothering her that it was raining she reassured me that she loved that the pictures would be unique. She went with the flow and we chatted in the car while we waited for the rain to pass and then she was a rockstar in front of the camera while we captured her senior pictures. I am always so thankful for clients that go with the flow, and love images that are unique. Thank you for making my job so fun, Amanda!
