Family Lifestyle Photography Shoot at Raglan Beach, Waikato

You know it's going to be a magical family lifestyle session when a beautiful location, stunning light, and a gorgeous family combine. Add to that a wonderful sunset, some fun in the water and an impromptu visit from a magnificent horse and it's fair to say we had heaps of fun.

Our location was Ngarunui Beach in Raglan, Waikato. This is a beautiful and wild West Coast beach, with black sand that can lend to carefree or dramatic images. I love the rich tones that the colour of the sand and the golden light create. The sunset reflections against the wet black sand can be truly amazing.

Such a wonderful place to capture memories for this lovely family. More photos from this session can be found in my portfolio.
