This lovely family braved a cold, overcast, and foggy morning. They trusted me with a wild notion… gloomy weather + family photo session can make for a gorgeous session!

We had a rainbow appear at the end of the session, no rain in sight- I’d say that tells you all about how spectacular our session together was! Juliet and family are expecting baby sister on Christmas and, wow, what an amazing gift!

I went out to the Drip to photograph this lifestyle home family session of the Ash Family. We were so grateful that the rain stopped just hours before our session and we had gorgeous overcast skies. I love that she chose pinks and blues for her simple yet lovely sesh.

Vanessa wanted a relaxed family session with some bluebonnets.
