As a family photographer, I love capturing those special, unscripted moments of childhood wonder and imagination. Recently, I had the joy of photographing a session with a mom and her two kids, a boy and a girl, playing together in the sunset glow of Rise Park in Basildon. It was a fun, active shoot full of laughter, magic, and togetherness.
The golden sunlight filtering through the trees set a beautiful scene. Both kids were thrilled to run around and explore. I let the two siblings play more naturally while I followed capturing candid moments.
Some of my favourite images were of them blowing dandelions in the sunset light. The boy loved climbing the branches of a big oak tree while his sister gathered acorns from the ground below.
I highly enjoy photographing families, especially active sessions like this one where kids can be themselves showing their free spirits. The beautiful sunset light provided the perfect scenic backdrop. This shoot epitomised all the wonder of childhood that I aim to capture in my family sessions.
