If you are a beach family get your photos taken at one of Adelaide beaches and preserve those precious childhood memories for a lifetime!
The family in this photograph often come to the beach as a family. The boys play with the rocks and then have a swim and paddle in the water so when this Mum contacted me to take her family photos she was keen on the beach scene for the venue.
I love to take family photos when the light is low in the sky giving a golden glow to each image. This is first thing in the morning or the late afternoon. Families, like the one in this photograph, chose the morning light as their children are up early anyway and would be too tired in the evening.
Taking care to position them in the best light possible, I stepped back and let them be the lovely family they are. I always want the parents and kids to just relax and enjoy themselves. I loved the little hand on Mum's leg, the interaction with each other, the golden glow over the whole image and the reflection in the water. After a while the parents stepped back and I was able to get some delightful sibling portraits and individual photos of each child.
Having got enough images on the sand and with the rocks, we rolled up the boys pants and they had lots of fun skimming pebbles into the water and then going all out and getting themselves totally wet! They went home from the family photos to celebrate the middle child's birthday with a spark in their eyes, a lolly snake as a treat for being so good and pretty wet overalls!
