This summer was full of pop up thunderstorms which made scheduling sessions a tad difficult. The weather was so unpredictable. One minute it could be fine and the next was calling for a popup thunderstorm. After rescheduling this family session and Emmaline’s annual birthday session a few times because of storms, we thought we would get lucky on this particular day. We were about a month out from my due date so we wanted to photograph the session in before my baby girl came. I don’t think you can tell from the images but a huge storm was brewing which cut our session short. We pulled away from the parking lot with it pouring down rain!! Since their session was cut so short because of the storm, I offered them a mini session slot on my mini session date which was 5 days later. Guess who came 3 days after this session!! I still laugh about how close we cut it.
I adore this family and sweet Emmaline. Each year I photograph their family and Emmaline’s annual birthday portraits. Emmaline is a hoot! Full of energy and sass. She’s hilarious and so fun to be around.
Enjoy my favorites from their annual family session and Emmaline’s annual birthday session!
