Summertime is a tricky time for a Sanibel photographer! The weather forecast is just about always “50% chance for rain; scattered PM thunderstorms”. Every single day. Not to mention the 100 degree temps. Hey, we’re lucky that the hurricanes have missed us, so I can’t complain!
This day was one of the rainy ones, but luckily it was off-and-on sun showers. This family included a handsome 5-month-old boy, and I know from experience how hard it is to prepare the little ones for a session. The last thing you want to do is reschedule, especially if you’ve already arrived! Since we were already on the beach when it started to rain, the only thing to do was duck under the trees. Thankfully it wasn’t raining too hard. So during each break in the showers, we would run out from our cover and snap a few shots. Then we’d duck back in when it started again. Rinse, and repeat. It was quite a mini-adventure! But I’m happy to say that we got all of our shots in, and just in time for the torrential downpour. Just as I was crossing back over the Sanibel Causeway, the rain started coming down so hard that I couldn’t see in front of me!
Here are just a few of the adorable pictures we were able to get on this not-so-perfect day. I think they turned out pretty perfect anyway. 🙂
