Yup, it's late October and we're out shooting like it's spring time, sleeveless dress and a floral crown. That's Florida for you.
I miss out on the fall colors, the reds, oranges and golds. I miss out on the snow, too. That part I don't mind so much. I lived in upstate New York for a few years and I remember having to shovel and salt the driveway and side walks. UGH, not fun. I do miss what autumn was like though.
Every climate has it's perks. I may get rained out for weeks or have a random hurricane, but I don't have to deal with months of snow and ice.
I don't get to take pictures of kids jumping in a pile of leaves or throwing snow balls, but I get to put someone in the sun on a winter morning without having to keep a car running to jump in every 10 minutes to warm up.
Every place has their challenges, I've had to shoot in the rain, sometimes I'll walk out my door at 8 in the morning and start sweating instantly and my hair goes crazy. I'll see posts from photographers all across the country and envy their locations, colors, the terrain, but maybe they envy mine sometimes too.
We just adapt, and keep shooting.
