When the weather is bad … rain, wind, heat| Family Photography in Alamogordo/High Rolls, NM | by Karina Schuh
Finally, it is the end of the spring season. During the last few months, I had to reschedule many family sessions due to the bad weather. Especially, the wind gave my clients a hard time but one time we also got rain.
Last Tuesday, the weather was perfect during the whole day. Mica booked her family session for 6 pm in High Rolls. When I drove up the mountains, the sky became darker and darker with a huge cloud. When I arrived there, the son was already gone … Too bad, it was too late to reschedule their session. But we got the best out of the bad weather.
I saw their beautiful green yard with many cherrie trees that were full with red cherries. I wanted to taste them. That looked beautiful. I set up my equipment, I knew I had to handle quickly before the rain starts, so I did. I started to take the first photos in front of the trees and tried to find a different place to pose the whole family of 9. We run towards the fountain that is in their backyard to get everybody sitting. Walking there, I even got to pick a sweet cherrie. I would have loved to pick some more, so delicious. I also saw their beautiful backyard that every photographer would wish for as a location for a family photo shooting.[singlepic id=268 w= h= float=none]
After taking a few photos at the fountain, it started to rain, to poor … I did not want to stop taking their images as we just had started. I quickly asked for a patio, and yes, there was a patio where we all run over to. The rain got stronger and stronger. It poured down that I also could not allow my photo equipment become wet. We had to stay underneath the patio and finish up the session there. But we all had a lot of fun and the photos turned out really nice.[singlepic id=266 w= h= float=none]
If you book your session and you see upfront the weather would be bad, as a photographer, I don’t have a problem to reschedule your session. I am open to everything. It is probably often best to reschedule than not to say anything, especially when it is windy, women often have long hair that would fly around and in their faces, for babies it would not be good at all to have them in the wind. Even when you think the weather is too hot, especially when you book White Sands National Monument, it would be better to find a better time for the session. Please talk to me and I will do my best to find the perfect appointment for your family.
