How to Rock a Session in Rain, Snow, or Wind
How to Rock a Session in Rain, Snow, or Wind: Saaty Photography. Whatever your plans are for a portrait session, chances are you’re banking on a clear, sunny day. Of course, that’s not always how things go, especially in Flagstaff. Here are some tips to help you rock your session in case your shoot gets an unexpected bit of weather.
Use the Weather to Your Advantage
So, it looks like your photoshoot is about to get rained out. Never fear! There are so many unique options for shooting in the rain that will make your photos pop. Try using an umbrella as a cute prop that will make your photos extra dreamy. Hopping in puddles and enjoying or dancing in the rain is always fun and looks adorable, especially if you have young children or pets.
If the weather turns a little more extreme and you find yourself caught in the snow, there are plenty of ways to put a fun spin on your photos. Bundle up, pull your hair back, and just have fun! Throwing snowballs, making snow angels, enjoying hot cocoa, or just watching the snowfall can add a whimsical, wintry twist to your portraits. Snowy weather can make for romantic couples photos and wholesome family shots if you’re not afraid to get a little chilly.
Enjoy the Changes
Lastly, if it looks like you’re going to be dealing with an unexpectedly windy day, make sure you use that to your advantage! Wearing flowy dresses or skirts in the wind adds an unmatched element of romance to your portraits, especially if you let your hair down and go with the flow. The magical atmosphere this gives your photos will absolutely blow you away!
If you find yourself having to battle the elements on the day of your photoshoot, there are still plenty of creative ways to get the stunning photos you desire. Use these tips to help you rock your session in rain, snow, or wind.
