Monson Photography FAQ: What if it rains on the date of my session?

July 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Since the recent Michigan on-and-off storms have had both myself and my clients scurrying about, trying to decide if we need to reschedule or not, I decided this would be an appropriate addition to my FAQ series. 

I'll let you in on a little secret: I've been in business for five years now, and I can probably count on one hand the number of times I have actually had to reschedule a session due to the weather.  However, I have had a bazillion days of "iffy" weather that ends up to be fine.  I have spent COUNTLESS days checking every hour on the hour, and what I've learned from this is that the weather can change on a dime. 

So, if you have a session scheduled tonight and it's been dreary all day, or it's sprinkled now and then, don't fret!  This happens a lot.  Most times, what we are left with is a nice, overcast sky, which actually provides beautiful, soft lighting for portraits.  Sometimes it turns out to be very sunny.

The moral of the story is, we won't even considering rescheduling until at least an hour before your session. And if we do have to reschedule, so be it.  We can't change the weather, right? 

For my out-of-town clients (Which I have many of and LOVE!), I always, ALWAYS schedule your session date as well as a rain date.  No matter what, we will have your session during your stay. 

I hope this helps to ease your mind a bit! 

Best Wishes!
