Melissa (the lovely lady below in pink) and I had been trying to set up a shoot for a almost a year. A couple Saturdays ago all her family members' schedules finally aligned...and it was raining. And thundering. And tornadoing. I just made that word up I believe. However, a pavilion and and intermittent pauses in the rain saved the day. I think we came away some amazing family pictures. Thanks Melissa!
