Recently I shot a 70th Birthday party/ mini family reunion. We originally talked about taking photos at Bell Rock in Sedona but when the time came for the shoot, the weather forecast was nearly 100% rain. We decided to work with the family home in the Village of Oakcreek instead. I crossed my fingers as I drove down that morning. I was dark but we got really lucky with only intermittent rain drops and the occasional burst of sunlight through dark clouds. It was a cold day and the family opted to keep things relaxed. We took photos right outside the backdoor so that folks could warm up inside in between group shots. It was really a fun time and I am very happy that the weather held out enough for us to take family portraits outside.
