When life gives you rain… take photos & make cookies

Yesterday I photographed Lily and Michelle at discovery park. I consider them both friends and it’s always a treat to work for people you both know well and love! We were so excited and had tons of ideas, but then the rain came. We kept shooting anyway (gotta love clear bubble umbrellas), and then the real rain came down. This rain is the type, that if you jumped into a lake your would be less wet. It was crazy. So we scurried as fast as we could to our cars and regrouped. We decided to end our outdoor session (as if we had a choice), it really was comical, and go back to their house and do some documentary style pics of them making cookies. After all, Lily is known for baking and Michelle was an excellent assistant. It was the perfect seattle evening and photoshoot.

Here is a peom called Spring Rain that fits our story perfectly. From the book Eloise Wilkin’s Poems to read to the very young.

The storm came up so very quick

It couldn’t have been quicker.

I should have brought my hat along,

I should have brought my slicker.

My hair is wet, my feet are wet,

I couldn’t be much wetter.

I fell into a river once,

But this is even better.

It’s a long story, but I basically forced them in front of the camera. Thanks Laurel and Clare!

Love them all, but my favorites are the peering over the book and blk & white in the grass with the umbrella. I also like the kitchen photo prepping to make cookies (what a GREAT idea for a theme!!!)
