Dancing in the rain…

August 18, 2010

Natasha called me about a month ago to set up a photo session for her family and her extended family flying in for the week. They were seriously, a funny, laid back and cool family. They brought crazy props and made me laugh…hard.

So lets see, this photo session, how to describe…lots of laughter, running around chasing two very energetic boys, making forts out of sticks, shaking off crazy red ants, a couch in the field, um, really long mustaches (seriously funny stuff) and then the rain rolled in… 

Not just a drop or two…but buckets and buckets of rain.  We all made a dash for the trees.  I was wondering if Natasha and Mike would be willing to try pics in the rain…and they were game.  Completely running around, dancing, laughing…it was a moment and I loved being a part of it.  To me the rain adds drama, romance and really in my opinion,  an instant cool factor.  ;p  I’m thinking my hubby better get ready to take pics next time it rains around here.

If you know Natasha, love Natahsa, have never seen Natasha but really love a particular photo…let her know here.  Leave a comment…she could win some prints. Fun in my opinion…

    Love all these…maybe the one of them “dancing in the rain” the most. Talk about making lemonade when you were handed lemons…this photo shoot is awesome, BECAUSE of the rain! (Well, I’m sure it would have been cool anyway…but these must be great people to be so fun & spontaneous).

    WOW! I am blown away with what a GREAT job you did Elizabeth! You made this experience so easy with your relaxed and fun loving nature. My husband HATES having pictures taken and he was NOT looking forward to this! In fact, he said “I did NOT sign up for this” on our way to the photo shoot. When it was all said and done, he really enjoyed himself and TOTALLY LOVES the pictures! I can’t thank you enough for capturing my family in such a beautifully artistic and natural setting. It has been five years since I have been with all three of my children at the same time and who knows how long it will be until the next time we will all be able to be together. These images will be one of my most cherished possessions for the rest of my natural life. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    For someone who hates to have pictures taken is an understatement, I have two words, I’m impressed! This was not only fun, it made for a great memory of time spent my family. Kudos to you Elizabeth for your creativity and natural professionalism.

  12. Alice says:

    I love the pic of Diane and her grand-daughter. You can just see the love in her face. But really, they are all great. I am so glad you had such a wonderful visit. It really is too bad that Danielle’s family couldn’t make it. But you are such a loving family and it shows in all the pictures.
