This was the day that I went out shooting a little unprepared. Little did I know that it would eventually rain freezing rain. Coupled with strong winds, it was not the most ideal condition to be shooting in. Nevertheless, I kept shooting because I already made the effort to come to the park.
But enough about me. Let’s talk about the families that came to the park with a photographer to take family photos. As I was making my way back to my car, I see at least three families (related to each other) come out into the cold. The freezing rain had stopped but there was still some precipitation, not to mention the cold. For reasons unknown to me, this photographer thought it would be a great idea to keep going with this family photoshoot session. There was a little girl dressed up in a pretty skirt, and parents dressed nicely without their jackets. I overheard one person mention that he thought the family photoshoot was a great idea, thinking it was in a studio!
Meanwhile I looked like a mess covered in ice, with all my photography gear covered…like what you see here:
I just hope she was able to get some decent shots with all the family members. I gather she could have made things easier on herself had she opted to shoot on another day when the weather was a little less…freezing.
