I’m thankful to meet another amazing family! I donated this session to the “Lynnwood Expressions Skating Club” and this family won!
I know it rains a lot here in the Pacific Northwest but the morning of the photo shoot we were not talking just sprinkling it was down pouring. Most of my families would reschedule but this family was set on having their photos done and didn’t even make a peep as they were getting drenched and were all freezing cold. We all know that when your that cold your body is numb in a few minutes and yes that includes me the photographer. We all had a blast and had fun using the umbrellas too.
Now a little bit about the family:
The Grasser Family loves the outdoors! They enjoy spending their summer weekends entertaining on the deck, camping or at the beach, they get out and live a little – rain or shine! They live in the beautiful PNW and if they choose to schedule around the weather, there are many opportunities we would miss out on. Isn’t that what the adorable rubber boots and umbrellas are for? This photo shoot was perfect for them regardless of the rain. Where it could they have tested their patience, stressed mom out, or really messed up our hair, they made it a family event. Sherra’s sister in law helped with the shoot by chasing me around with an umbrella to try to keep my camera equipment dry (sister-in-law = drowned rat wet) and Sherra’s brother in law was ready & armed to put up the canopy. But that is how the Grasser’s work! They have a great love and commitment to family! Their family is a family of five – Dean, Sherra, Tyler (15), Emmy (12) and KC, their old, little “man’s best friend”.
