Dotson Family’s Rainy Summer Day – Extended Family Session | Tiffany Murray – Ashland Photographer
If I told you we had to take a rain break in the middle of this session, would you believe me?! How about if I told you I had to bring out my handy light to help brighten up this gorgeous lane since it was so overcast and dreary? Believe it or not, that’s exactly what happened for the Dotson family’s extended family session!
When the weather calls for rain or severely overcast skies, I’d usually recommend rescheduling. However, the Dotson family had members visiting from Pennsylvania and we couldn’t possibly reschedule. In fact, my entire drive to the session was rainy. To say I was a bit disappointed is an understatement. Norma, the matriarch of the Dotson family, had sent me a photo of the lane we’d be shooting in. Her photo, drenched with beautiful sun, was taken at the same time as we had scheduled our session. If you know me, you know I love beautiful light and I so hoped to deliver that in these photos. However, I knew with my lighting setup we’d be good either way.
Ok, all that stressing and look how beautifully these photos turned out?! You would never know it wasn’t sunny! In fact, it was only about 65 degrees and misting at least 85% of the time. Including one stretch of full-on rain in which we ran from the lane to take cover in a nearby barn. Never a dull moment, right?! That’s what makes my job, as an Ashland family photographer so much fun!
Again, thank you to the Dotson family for choosing me to capture this milestone! I loved working with your entire family – despite the crazy weather. And, I still totally love all your images. Enjoy some of my faves from their extended family session!
