We photographed the Corpuz family at their lovely Roseville home on a July day, when one would expect it to be bright and sunny, but we were in for a little surprise! We hardly saw rain at all this past year, and low and behold, it started to rain right in the middle of summer! Luckily it was only a little bit, and we took cover under their patio for a few minutes to keep from getting damp. That is when this gorgeous family portrait was made….thanks to the sprinkles! They really wanted their family dog, Mr. Cookie, to be in all of the family shots, but he had his own agenda. We did get a few of him, though, and they loved this black & white of him in particular (I think it was the kids’ favorite!).
