Now is the perfect time to think about having your family photographed at sunset! Sunset gives that beautiful golden light and is a photographer's dream!

As a photographer, photographing families at sunset is a dream! I love that beautiful golden light! It not only looks amazing, but the light at sunset is very flattering. What every family member wants to hear right?!

Another reason why I love the light at this time of day is because people don't squint. When the sun is high in the sky, even on an overcast day, most people squint their eyes. At sunset, just by simply placing people with the sun behind them means their eyes are comfortable. A lot of children also have quite sensitive eyes so this helps immensely!

Sunset Locations

Kiddy Kats Photography is based in Ferntree Gully, in Melbourne's outer east. This means that I'm spoilt for choice when it comes to great parks! But the two that I love most and I use for photography sessions are The Liverpool Road Retarding Basin in Boronia and the Old Olinda Golf Course in the Yarra Ranges. Both parks offer a huge amount of space which means I can still make the photography sessions feel private, and both give a really natural backdrop that looks stunning at sunset.

Energetic Children

If you have children who are at an energetic age and are a bit restless, these photo shoots will also most likely suit them better than being in a studio. In a park they can do their own thing and have fun, allowing me to capture natural moments. Some people also prefer this style of photography rather than posing at the camera. I like to take a combination of both in my photo sessions. I like to capture a 'traditional' looking-at-camera photo then move on to your family just having fun together... laughing and playing with each other. All of my customers walk away saying how much fun they had!

A photo shoot is a great excuse to dress up and feel your best, and just spend time with each other having fun. Sometimes you may even forget that I'm there! The best part is you will have these memories captured for you to remember forever :)
