I've done many shoots in the rain. Living in Seattle, if I always canceled because of a little drizzle, I'd rarely have a photo shoot. The weather report was dicy. It was a mix of snow and rain. We took a risk when things were appearing to let up but this poor family was trying to look natural and smile in gale force winds. Just when we thought we were going to have to give up, Elliot's dad was able to distract him enough to power through and we got the closeups of him his mama was hoping for. His smile was so big, you'd never know he was shivering. I certainly was.
