After having an unusually cool summer we all knew that at some point we would have a heat wave in Fall. What we didn’t know is that we would have the hottest day recorded for Los Angeles… ever!
I knew it would be hot at our shoot, but I figured by the time we started shooting it would be in the 90′s, which is doable. Cristina and I chatted earlier in the day and opted to go forward with the shoot because they are from Northern California and it was their last day here. As I’m driving down the freeway to their shoot, my thermostat kept going up. 105. 112. 115. It finally stopped at 117 degrees. 117! I called Cristina, panicked, because I was worried about her two little ones. Still we decided to go for it and see what happened.
I couldn’t have asked for a better family to work with on the hottest day ever! Although we were all sweating bullets on the outside, Cristina and Mike totally kept their cool. Which, in turn, kept the kids happy. I know a lot of people would have complained the whole time, but I never heard one single complaint out of them. Not one! And that made it fun!
At the end of the shoot Brian said, “You know, I really think it’s cooled down a lot!”. I said that I think we had just gotten used to it. It was still 102 degrees when I got in my car!
Hopefully I will get to work with this family again on a much cooler day and I’m excited what we can do then because I think these turned out pretty awesome! Here’s the slideshow!
PS Cristina is an AMAZING jewelry designer. Check out here work here!
During our shoot I was plotting how I was going to run away with this chair. Cristina’s mom found it at a garage sale! But, it was way to hot to run let alone run with a very big chair
I love when we can make time to do some shots of Mom and Dad alone!
