Let me just say, these guys are mad troopers. It was supposed to rain the day of their shoot and I am always hesitant to cancel due to rain because most of the time when the forecast says "rain" in Southern California it means "overcast." Overcast days are actually really nice for shooting because it's like a big soft box in the sky, so I let them know it was up to them and they decided to risk it and stick with their original shoot time.

And of course, this was the one time the forecast was right and it rained. Cats and dogs. They wanted a beach shoot, so we moved it the pier so we'd have a place to run and hide in case of a downpour. We had about a half hour when the skies cleared and we ventured out from under our shelter, but other than that we stayed nice and dry under the pier.

Thanks Lopez's for braving the elements, keeping your shoot, and being such beautiful models. I had a great time hanging out and getting to know your awesome family!

    The last shot is FIERCE! You are a trooper too. Cameras (without housing) + water = not good. Glad it worked out!

    Nicole, thank you so much for all of the beautiful pictures! Our family loved them as chritmas pictues! Plus we did not have a family portrait of all of us! Thank you again!
