Photo Challenge: Golden Hour

My little sister makes pregnancy look beautiful! My nephew will make his debut next month, so my sister and I had planned to head to the beach this summer for a fun and short silhouette photo session before the little blessing arrives. It was a beautiful day and my brother-in-law took us to a little private beach in Corona Del Mar. {He swore me to secrecy, so don’t even ask πŸ™‚ }

The beach was small, serene andΒ perfectly peaceful to capture these shots. And lucky for me, The Daily Post challenge this week is the golden hour. Lovely serendipity!

On a side note, I was lucky to have spent an afternoon earlier this year with Erika Thornes who is an AMAZING photographer, especially when it comes to silhouettes. So glad I was able to learn from her as I would’ve been lost getting these shots without her previous guidance!

What are your favorite “golden hour” shots? Link up in the comments – I’d love to see! Besides looking forward to getting silhouettes of my daughters, I can’t wait to get silhouette shots of my nephew out of the tummy, too! Thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!
