I sat in the sunroom at my parents' house in Wilmington keeping a close eye on the sky. The sun was barely shining through, but enough to boost my confidence that we were going to fit in this session before the storms hit. Or so I thought. Unfortunately, the sky literally opened up on my way to the Swain's house.
It's always a bummer to not get to shoot outside with the natural light just because that's what I love the most, but I usually just feel bad that the family may not end up with the images they had "pictured" in their mind. Needless to say, Katie & Jason were extremely flexible and still so excited about the session even as we watched the rain continue to pour outside. We started in baby Cate's room right after she awoke from her afternoon nap...and as we made our way throughout the house taking pictures, the rain slowed, and we even got to go outside for the last little bit of the session!
This "rainy" session ended up being one of my favorites yet. Katie & Jason, I am so thankful that you trusted me to capture your family at this stage in your lives! Cate is too, too precious! I hope these pictures will bring much joy to your life now and even in the years to come.
