Recently, I had the opportunity to shoot a family in Fairmount Park, in Philadelphia. I want to start by saying that the shoot was not supposed to happen there. It is a rare event that things go as planned when leading up to a particular photo shoot. As the photographer, I need to always think two steps ahead, like a game of chess. Or, as a good friend shared with me on one fine day, "Prepare for the worst, hope for the best." For some reason, that statement has been my mantra for situations just like the one you are about to learn about.
