If you spend any time here in Michigan, you're bound to hear someone say, "the weather can turn on a dime," and boy are they right.
I had asked yesterday if anyone would like to do a few portraits in the snow and at the time I had put the call out there, it was gorgeous. The snow was coming down gently, the roads were alright but as we started to make our way into town, I quickly realized that it all had changed. As I watched downtown Bay City come into view, it was just pure insanity. No visibility, a foot of snow on the road, cars stuck, and anyone that was out and about was driving the opposite way that I was going to get home before they got stranded in the wasteland that was the city.
I'll be honest, it was a bad idea to be out there. It was really dangerous. The images though, are incredible. I need to thank Amanda, Alyssa, and Brooke for being total troopers dealing with the wind and the sandpaper-like snow. They were amazing and I can't thank their parents enough for getting them out there safely and helping me make some amazing shots.
The opportunity to shoot in conditions like this only come around once or twice a year and I'm elated to say that we made these in such an insane situation. It was certainly risky, but now we have one more story to tell.
