Sometimes the summer rains in Florida allow for some amazing light, lightning and clouds. For this senior beach portrait session, my clients rented a condo close to our favorite section of the Emerald Coast. On this particular evening, a rain storm started at 5pm and came and went the whole session. We had to hide in our vehicles before we braved the beach. We were rewarded for our patience; the natural colors after this rain were beautiful soft, warm cloud filtered light. We even got a lightning strike in one of our images! I am guessing nobody in her home town will have images like this!
