Do you know how hard it is to find a day when six schedules have the same day off?? Hint, it's very hard!! We had to reschedule and have very many options for everyone to choose from. I was trying to get this to happen since June. But it finally all worked out and it turned out amazing!
The photo shoot took place at 10am. I woke up that morning around 7am and it was pouring rain. I pulled up the radar on my phone, it looked like the storm was about halfway over. I hoped that it would be done by the time the session started. I rolled over and went back to sleep for a little bit longer. When I woke up and started getting ready around 830am, it was only sprinkling and the radar was almost clear. I was so happy! I stopped at Kroger and Krispy Kreme to get some snacks and drinks for the girls and their moms and headed to the beach. It was still overcast but the rain had stopped by the time I got there. Overcast is actually very good for pictures, there's less harsh lighting, less shadows, and the clouds can make a cool background. Everything was still very wet so we had to stay on the sidewalk a lot but I think the girls still made the session really fun and I'm glad they all got along.
I ordered them all Brit's Clicks' t-shirts that say that they're a model for me. I let them all choose a design and color that they love, based on their feedback. I believe that individuality is very important and I want my girls to wear what they love and be themselves. I also included the quote, "Be your own kind of beautiful." Once again, promoting individuality. As soon as they changed into these shirts and we started taking a couple photos, it started raining on us. Thankfully all the moms that came with, covered the food and everything that was on picnic tables while me and the girls ran under the shelter. We snapped a few more pictures and that was it. We made it almost all of the way through the session without any rain!
I am so thankful to have such gorgeous girls helping me with my business this year. I think it's going to be a great year for all of us! Here's to my Team Eighteen Senior Reps!
