When you do photography for a living, it’s hard to figure out when to do your own family pictures. My mom had been wanting a family session forever. She wanted to do it in the fall (my busiest time) and with everyone (so hard) so we started planning about two months out. I had to keep that Sunday free and it ended up being the rainest, coldest day for an October day. We did the shoot anyway:) It wasn’t exactly like I wanted, but I am so glad we did them anyway. It’s not like a little rain will scare away some Elrods.
Also, my (awesome) friend Amy came and helped with the shooting. She braved the weather and stood on a mountain while I yelled for everyone to pay attention. There is nothing harder than shooting another photographer’s session. We already see it in our heads and it’s difficult to share the vision. I am so thankful she puts up with my crazy!!
To my family, thank you for always letting me click away even though you rarely see the results. I am so lucky that I get to share this life with you.
