I’ve basically been 0-2 on my last two shoots. Both just sort of imploded thanks in a very large part to good ole mother nature. And I almost wasn’t going to share any of the photos I did manage to get because A) I just know I didn’t do an awesome job (again, thanks weather) and B) I’m hoping both shoots can be re-done under better circumstances and I will want to share those photos with you instead. BUT. I decided to share these from Brian and Teresa’s shoot today and the photos from the other shoot tomorrow – so stay tuned for more fun! ;)
Brian and Teresa are friends of mine. And I sort of convinced them that a snowy shoot would be SOAWESOMEGUYSYOUHAVETODOIT! And they – being the adventurers they are – so kindly agreed to my crazy idea. Because I didn’t just want it to have snowed recently and then we go out on a nice day and shoot the pictures …. I wanted it to be actually snowing in the pictures. And I wanted it to be snowing A LOT. And I figured if anyone would agree to this it would be these two.
So we waited. And waited. And winter never showed up for months. Until a few weeks ago when we started to get snow day after snow day. Since we all work during the week we had to wait for a snowy weekend day and we finally got our opportunity – or so we thought. The forecast kept pushing the snow back in the day – which kind of ruined our plan, but we decided to head up into the foothills and hope it started to snow more when we got there.
Well snow more it did! Except it went from light dusting of snow and a few flurries in the air to full-blown, snowing-sideways, crazy-windy BLIZZARD! And we literally lasted about 8 minutes outside in it before we were frozen solid and realized we couldn’t even open our eyes – let alone take any good pictures – so we called it a day. And this is what we managed to get before we booked it back to the car and headed home.
A quick snow wipe before we tried to do some pictures….
And a visit from some puppies…
And a few good pictures???
Can you tell we were FREEZING? haha
“guys just pretend this isn’t miserable for 5 seconds…”
At this point we had been out for just a few minutes and we knew we were just done.
Thanks for attempting to brave the weather you guys!! We will find a good opportunity soon, promise! -Katie
