Benita’s family photos at Delta Park were postponed from a few weeks ago, but I think it was the best decision! Delta Park was absolutely magnificent this week! The park is starting to show off it’s autumn splendour. The trees have started turning golden colours, and the best part are the fields of cosmos flowers.

Fields of cosmos

My sister had instagrammed photos of cosmos earlier in the day, so I phoned her before I met the family to find out where exactly she’d taken the photo. I’d never seen a field of cosmos so spectacular in the park before.

It was so worth the hike!

I worked out pretty early on in the shoot that Lea was far more comfortable when I was far away from her and using my long lens. So very unusually, almost the entire shoot was done with my 70-200mm lens.

Are the flowers magnificent?

Under the autumn trees

We actually started the shoot at the autumn coloured forest. It really won’t be long before all the leaves are gone, and we had fun throwing some in the air.

Not bad for a two year old who apparently doesn’t like cameras 😉

I was taking photos of Benita and Gert, and turned around to see Lea watching them from behind a few grasses… sometimes the best photos are the ones that are unposed.
