The F. Family | Fort Mill SC Family Photographer

I almost can’t believe that this photo shoot actually happened!

This family contacted me back in late February to do a combined family and one-year shoot for their precious daughter, and we scheduled for mid-May. Little did we know that we were going to have an extremely rainy late Spring here in the Carolinas! After a few rain-outs and scheduling conflicts, we split the session into a one-year session for sweet Little A, and a family session…and the family session happened a month after the originally scheduled date! With my due-date looming and thunderstorms in the forecast for nearly every date that we rescheduled, it didn’t seem like I’d ever get these lovely folks in front of my camera again.

We had a major thunderstorm forecast for this evening’s session, complete with hail and strong winds, but it wasn’t supposed to start until an hour or so after we’d made our most recent reschedule attempt, so we decided to go for it. The wind was blowing, the bugs were harassing them, we were racing the clock, and there were thunderclouds looming on the horizon, but this family brought their love and smiles to the photos. Everyone was a trooper, even little Miss A.

Here are a few of my favorites from the evening.
