The Hayes Family

One of the perils in scheduling outdoor photos well in advance is that you have no idea what the forecast will look like when your shoot finally rolls around, which is precisely the dilemma that Sarah and I faced as her family's session approached. The forecast looked miserable, and when Saturday arrived with persistent morning showers, I assumed we'd be falling back on our rain date. But the skies cleared and our cautious optimism was rewarded with a perfect fall afternoon in downtown Allegan. (Pure Michigan, indeed.)
