You've probably heard this before, clouds can be a photographer's best friend and on this particular cool July morning they were in abundance with a side of drizzle. This sweet family whom I had never met, trusted me to make the call. I said let's go for it and they happily obliged. After we hung up and I drove closer to the beach it began to pour and I thought, what have I done!? But clearly there's a happy ending here. Luck was on our side that morning, because I no sooner pulled into the parking lot and the rain stopped and the overcast sky made colors pop and textures look so rich. I was in picture taking heaven. This sweet family was such a pleasure to meet. So easy going, so fun to be around. I thoroughly enjoyed our time together. It was a gem of a morning after all.
