Ryan, Keeley, Zach & Darcey – Family Photographer Bournemouth

A few weeks ago I spent a lovely late afternoon in the Evening Hill area of Poole with the loveliest of families, Ryan, Keeley and twins Darcey and Zach.

For those of you who don’t know Poole, Evening Hill is a view point (cue picnic benches and Friday night fish ‘n’ chips) which sits at the entrance to the Sandbanks peninsula. Known for its millionaire houses, Sandbanks has by area, the fourth highest land value in the world! On one side of the peninsular are the most stunning beaches with a view to the Isle of Wight on a clear day and on the other side, the Poole harbour entrance, where watersport enthusiasts use the shallow waters as a playground for paddle boarding, kite surfing and windsurfing. The harbour side is often overlooked in favour of the immaculate beaches on the other side, but this side is where the sun sets. Here, you can take a long evening walk along the promenade and enjoy spectacular views or sit on one of the many benches on Evening Hill and take it all in.

You can tell I’m quite emotional about this spot, not only from a photographer’s point of view – the late afternoon light is like liquid chocolate for the camera along with the reflections off the water, but this is where I learnt to paddle board, kitesurf and where I met my  hubby!  To be able to hang out with a gorgeous, warm, kind and fun family, capturing these natural moments was an absolute privilege. Darcey and Zach were adorable, hilarious and super energetic, so much fun to work with.
