So, you have a photo shoot scheduled with a family to do sweet 16 pictures for their daughter and 7 of her closest friends. You scheduled to shoot outside, and you've already had a location change or two, and then you wake up and it's cold and rainy. Not misty and moody type rain, but a cold, constant rain that at times is coming down in a downpour. All the girls are together, and there are people from out of state here for the occasion, so not shooting is not an option. The mom of our sweet 16 came up with a wonderful idea, and a short phone call later we were all saved by the Book Bums!
So, if you've never been to Book Bums, it's a coffee shop, library, and all around cool place. Located in Old West Chester on the North end of Cincinnati this little gem not only caters to book lovers, but they take that love of reading even further and do children's story hours, and have tutoring sessions.
They graciously said yes to our little invasion, and they let us turn their space into a photo studio for a couple hours (can't thank you guys enough!). What looked like a total washout (pun intended) when I woke up, turned into a totally cool time in an awesome location, with a great group. Couldn't have asked for a better outcome!
