I was “this” close to calling this shoot off. The forecast said rain for days and it was POURING even up to an hour before our meet time. However, this family is a seasoned West Coast family and we waited it out together until the very last possible moment. It started to just spit so we ran out with umbrellas and actually caught a break in the weather! We slammed out this shoot in about 25 minutes and jumped back in our cars as the rains returned with a vengeance. However, there’s no way you could get epic backdrops like this without the storm, so it was totally worth the stress!
