Change of Plans {Downtown Roanoke Family Photographer}

Sometimes sessions just don’t go as you plan.  A Texas sized thunderstorm made our original field location impossible.  If I recall correctly (as I am way behind on blogging), we talked and even changed the session to the next day.  When debating a new location we figured that downtown Roanoke would be a perfect spot – a quirky downtown feel without worrying about loads of people all around us.  The decision was made pretty quickly and I didn’t think a thing of it.  As I drove to our session I began noticing traffic.  I heard live music.  I smelled barbecue and fried chicken.  After a 10 minute quest to find parking I quickly discovered that the “Celebrate Roanoke” event was going on.  Yikes!  But the crowded streets, live music, and entertainment didn’t stop us one bit!  One of my all time favorite photos was of the sisters in front of the ice cream truck – which wouldn’t have normally been there.  And there is absolutely nothing wrong with changing your plans to end a photo session with ice cream!

And, for the record, “Celebrate Roanoke” is super fun!  Good music, yummy food, and lots to see :).
