I will never get used to how quiet our beaches are in Cairns. They’re a family photographers dream!! I will say that beach family photos are up there with my favourites. There is so much space for children to run around, and lots of our beaches are close to greenery, so you can get two locations in one photoshoot!
That is exactly what we did for this family photoshoot. We chose a spot that we could include a wide open grassy area, and the beach. This is one of my favourite beaches. It’s less touristy and there are lots of different elements to give variety in your gallery. And palm trees. What family doesn’t want palm trees in your family photos?!
I’m from the UK originally. Even though I’ve lived in Cairns for 7 years, I still get excited by palm trees!
It actually rained the day of this session. We were contemplating calling it off, but decided to risk it. I’m so glad we did because, as you will see, the weather turned out beautifully for family sunset photos on the beach!
