As a on-location portrait photographer I am to some extent I am reliant on the call of nature.

If its windy I have to deal with it, if it is sunny I have to deal with that, if its cold I have to deal with that and if it rains I have to deal with that..

The difference with this shoot was that I actually wanted it to rain…  I was out to get some great portrait shots with the rain falling and the subject playing in the water…

This is where mother nature decided to mess my plans around…  It was raining heavy as we drove to the location but as soon as we got there, the rain clear and the sun come out…


Where is the rain?

Where is the rain?

One of the things I have learned as a event photographer is how to change plans and deal with what ever gets through at you.  You need to be able to deal with things and make decision in the heat of battle to get the shot…

This was one of those times as a rain shoot is not that cool without rain.. ha ha ha..

Here is a sneak peek of what we did…  The other images dragged us into the rain theme but it was a bit of flying by the seat of your pants type of thing.. ha ha ha
