Paula's Portrait Session

What was about to become a missed opportunity, fortunately turned into a great little photo session. Paula contacted me through my Facebook Page, saying she's seen my portfolio and would really like an outdoor portrait photoshoot. So we scheduled it about a week in advance and agreed we'd do it late in the afternoon, when the sun is nice and low in the sky.

The day of the photoshoot arrived and the only problem was, when I left home to meet Paula, the sky had turned dark grey and thunders could be heard in the background. A massive storm seemed to be heading in our direction. I thought ok, I'll go ahead at the location which was Tineretului Park in Bucharest and see what it looks like from there, since it was in a different part of the city. I got there and it was still nice and sunny, but unfortunately the clouds were still heading our way. I called Paula and told her what I was looking at and even though I didn't want to, I suggested that we would better reschedule for a different day. Fortunately, she said she'd come down to the park and we'll see from there, despite me explaining to her that even if it doesn't end up raining, without the sun, the photos won't be that good. I am so glad she insisted to come anyway, because I am not sure how, but that giant blanket of clouds slowly started turning away and ended up missing us completely! Within an hour the sky was nice and clear, which allowed us to take a lot of fun and beautifully lit photographs.
