Sunsets and Silhouettes


It's rather sad when the days start getting substantially shorter, don't you think? I'm really noticing it now. The one benefit is that golden hour and sunset is at a very suitable time for photographing kids. We're often still out and about around 7pm and there are these amazing sunsets! I started bringing my camera with me on the off chance we would be lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. And when we are I announce we simply must stop the car and take some photos. Cue groans from everyone. I remain undeterred. 


I'm a bit obsessed with sunsets and silhouettes at the moment. They are so beautiful and really fun to photograph! I love wee Noah's silhouette! He's very animated and you can still really see his emotions, even without his features!


In some other news, here's some recent going-ons...

1. Visit to a windfarm
2. Noah's days in his cot are numbered
3. Picky tot driving Mama to distraction
4. Reflection
5. Maisey in sunflowers
6. Noah's first trip to the cinema
7. Playdate
8. Daisies 

Good dog.

  9. Such a lovely time of day to be out and the most beautiful photos. The silhouettes look stunning. I find I miss the 7pm sunsets as we tend to be eating at this time, when the clocks go back I hope to catch them again, this post has inspired me.

  14. I love them, they looks so artistic, yet it's obvious that they are your little family. I'd definitely have them framed. #sundaysnap

  15. I love this time of year. I'm not a fan of the long, dark nights but, as you say, at least sunset and sunrise is at a more family friendly hour! These photos are absolutely stunning.
