Natural beach portraits are among my favourites, but photographing totally candid can lead to failure. I find the best way is to take control and direct the kids, is usually more successful. Of course being ready for any magic moments is also valid.


In this post I am comparing two images taken at the same location. The portrait of the boy and girl above was taken at one of my first sessions at this location, an Historical Village nearby. I love the emotional contact between brother and sister, but there was something not quite right.
