Like most evenings, we took the kids to the local golf course to ride their bikes around the empty parking lot. As is my usual nature, I took note of the lighting, our surroundings and took stock of spots that served as opportunities for photo opps.
At this time of the day, the sun is just setting and that wonderful golden hour floods the parking lot with such pretty light. Since this is my usual type of shot, I decided to go for something different. This day my eyes were drawn to the vegetation at a nearby creek. As my daughter took a break from riding, I asked her to step off the pavement and settled her near the greenery.
From there, I just let her pose, never leaving the spot we were in. The sun was moving across & low to the horizon, giving her a touch of light to the side of her head.Speaking of posing, she certainly loves to do that. She’s already at an age where she thinks mommy doesn’t know what she’s doing.
Here’s a pullback shot of where we were shooting.
