About a week ago I met up with the S family to do some family photos…we were on a tight schedule, and had already rescheduled this session once due to a crazy thunder-and-rain-storm the night before.  We were all hoping and praying that we wouldn’t get dumped on, but about 30 minutes into the session, the sky split into roaring thunder and a drenching downpour.  Luckily for us, our location had a little bit of shelter from the rain, so we decided to wait it out.  While we were waiting I was able to snap some candid shots and get to know this terrific family better.  It was fun to see them interacting with each other, especially since there is a pretty broad range of ages amongst the kids.  Finally the rain cleared and we got more photos taken before it poured again.  It was definitely one of my most memorable family sessions…and not just because of the rain!
