As with all photography the weather could be the bestest BFF or the worst nemesis. We've experienced summer temperatures here in Southern Cali so booking a family portrait at the beach wasn't out of the norm. But Trina and I confirmed that there wouldn't be any sunlight the day of our photo shoot. In fact, the forecast was 40% chance of showers.
Deep in my heart I've had this ongoing secret prayer that I would get to shoot a family portrait with dramatic clouds instead of golden sunlight.
But who was down?
The Klungreseters that's who! They were an answer to my secret prayer and I couldn't be more happy with their family portraits. They were fun, loving, and laughed. A LOT. And their dogs? They were adorable and had no problem with my directing them as you can see.
I told Trina that I've always wanted to shoot a family portrait with clouds, dogs, and tattoos. (And of course, the most awesome people.) It did rain hard that day but not until after our shoot. Don't ever say prayers are never answered because these photos are proof that mine were.
