When I first got an inquiry for this session, I had no idea what a treat I was in for! A mom was inquiring about pictures for her family - she and her husband and their two sons!  We set it up and we were all looking forward to it - and then the forecast...cold and rainy!

I didn't know Carol, but when I asked if she wanted to reschedule, she said, no, I think it will be fine, let's go for it!  I said, okay, I'm up for it if you are!

We got to the location ... it was starting to rain!  Luckily, we found a shed to provide shelter for the first photos!

And then, the rain stopped!

We were able to walk around and take pictures like a normal session within five minutes of the session starting!

I'd say that deserves a thumbs up!

It was such a treat for me to experience the sweet spirit and camaraderie of this family.

And a wonderful thing happened before the session ended...the sun appeared!  We were so thankful to God for that wonderful display of His beauty!

I also witnessed something else beautiful that afternoon, and that was pure affection between these two!  I just loved the way they looked at each other!
