Based in Bangor, beach photos are something I often shoot. This session was shot at Ballyholme Beach. Regardless of being cold the light was just beautiful, combined with the with imagination and wonder of these two brothers.
My favorite trick for kids at the beach is to let them play and be themselves and just shoot away, they often don’t even know I’m taking photos, these are always the moments that mean the most. Its about capturing the freedom and spontaneity of being young and set free to explore nature, and let the kids do what they love and find inspiration in the playfulness of just being surrounded by so many wonders and possibility. I try to approach my photography with the same wonderment and endless possibility.
I have countless times photographed Max and Leo and its a pleasure to see how they are growing up. These two brothers are just filled with so much energy and sense of exploration It was a pleasure to capture and even try to bottle up some of that energy at the wonderful Ballyholme Beach.
