My Captured Moment – Festival moments

My Captured Moment – Festival moments

I’m so glad I caught this moment between Tween and Toddler. It was taken at the Saltrock Croyde View festival we went to recently, it was a beautiful day and the relaxing, chilled back festival atmosphere is portrayed perfectly as these two sat to ‘just be’ For a moment.

A moment captured at the Croyde View festival

The Toddler loved having a chance to explore without me scooping him up away from danger every 5 minutes too.  And having the Teenager spend the day with us made the day extra special.

      They are, Tween is a real nurturer always looking out for his little brother and worrying about him.

    Lovely photos, such calm and relaxed moments, really special. I love to watch my three when they don’t know I’m looking. Finding them sitting snuggled up, or happily playing next to each other or chatting is wonderful. #mycapturedmoment

      Thank you Sara, I get a lot of shots of the back of them as it’s so much more natural.

    Beautiful photos. Can I ask what camera you used to take these?

      Thanks Jenna, I use a Nikon D500 with a prime lens, I’m upgrading in November so will be selling it on. I think you can pick one up for around £250 -£300 on eBay.

    Such a lovely captured moment. It is great when you can give the toddler room to roam, that’s why I always loved empty beaches when my girls were little. Family activities where everyone can join in are just great. Lovely pictures x
