10 Jan Golden Hour: A Family Session at the Beach
The inspiration for this photo session was to capture my two favorite things: children and the beach. And not any beach … Redondo Beach, California. It’s my happy place; to me it’s pure magic, and the sunsets here are stunning! In California, the land of “forever summer”, sunset beach sessions are a daily possibility.
My favorite element is the expression on the children’s faces when experiencing the beauty of a sunset and the fun of being at the beach. When photographing children at the beach, I love simply letting the kids be kids. No need to ask them for poses. Instead I let them run and play, all the while watching in awe behind my lens as they draw in the magnificent beauty and energy that the beach has to offer.
The biggest challenge of this sessions was catching my breath while running after three kids. The beach has no walls! You’ve gotta be quick, and ready to pull out all the stops to gather the children together for some candid moments.
When photographing any family session, keep it simple and go with the flow. Beach sessions will get sandy and wet. Roll up your sleeves and pant legs and try it out. The golden hour never disappoints.
