There are always silver-linings to anything that goes not as expected or originally desired. “Problems may suck, but they are gifts. They provide us with opportunities to learn.” This is the annoying statement (haha) that I recently told my children. I am still trying to figure out what some of these gifts are to my problems, but I guess I’m an Optimist because I do believe this! And, get this…
Sometimes, these “problems” allow us to find solutions that are even better than the original!
So last Sunday, it was raining. Scratch that. It was pouring. Well, only the middle of the night and in the morning, but still. My photoshoot of The S Family was scheduled for early morning! In addition, there was a 5K race with a running path that overlapped part of our location. This meant a lot of issues for our shoot, including parking challenges, bridge traffic and pedestrian traffic too. So we moved our shoot to a “backup location”.
This backup location was stellar. The kids had room to play. There was natural light in the covered areas. Their wonderfully coordinated outfits stylistically fit the new location better than the original one. There was also no traffic, no parking issues, and no pedestrian traffic. In fact, we had the location to ourselves for most of the shoot! We also had less stress, which meant a more relaxed shoot. Silver lining!
If that isn’t already awesome, the rain stopped and the sun came out. BOOYAH!!! 😀
