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.

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!

Words can not express how thankful and happy we are that we chose Monica to capture our perfect day. She made us feel both comfortable and confident in the whole process. She has this ease that makes you feel you’ve known her for years. Her kindness, personality, and professionalism was beyond what we could have hoped for. Her communication and organization was so impressive as well (I am far from organized)! Our photos are AMAZING, they are perfect. We wish we could do it all over again, and again. Seriously, book her right now! Best choice we could have made, and she helped make our day so wonderfully memorable and way less stressful.
