As I stood on the shores of Byron beach, watching this family have some Thursday night surfing fun as the sun slowly set, I couldn't help but feel a sense of joy wash over me. The unscripted moments of pure happiness, captured through my lens, felt like an honour to be a part of.
Being a photographer has allowed me the privilege of being an observer of life's most intimate moments. The emotions of families splashing in the water, laughing together and creating memories that will last forever, are the authentic experiences that remind me of the power of family photography.
Watching the children run freely on the sand, exploring the endless possibilities of the beach, brought back memories of my own journey of growth in this field. The realisation that photography is not just about capturing an image, but rather, about the emotions, experiences and memories that are attached to it, was a significant moment for me.
It's this realisation that drives my passion for family photography. The ability to authentically portray the love, connection and joy within a family through my lens, brings me so much fulfilment.
The stars truly aligned for this photoshoot, once strangers standing on a beach, and now a part of my travel journey!
