This area has gotten more than its share of rain for the last couple months, and this last weekend was not exception. While driving back from an event I felt the urge to photograph a couple of my children against the backdrop of the dramatic sky. I started with Jack and realized that that his Lego short, while cool, just wasn’t appropriate for the kind of photo I was looking for. So, stripped of his shirt, and told not to smile (this is hard for Jack since he really is a happy boy), he persevered though the cold wind.
I went home and picked up by daughter and it was a race against time since is was threatening rain. I was able to get a number shots I was happy with before it did finally start raining.
While not the type of photos that moms want for portraits of their children, they are very fun for the photographer and demonstrates the wide variety of options available beyond the typical portraits.
