I’m loving the fact that the nights are gradually getting longer which gives me a little more time to capture some outdoor lifestyle portraits for my Project 52. I absolutely love taking photos outside and I think this week’s photo proves that, with a little knowledge, beautiful photos can be captured wherever you are.

This week’s photo was taken on our street and, as well as this one, I managed to capture some really great shots of my son in 5 minutes which I’ll probably do a blog post of once I get around to editing the others!

The photo was taken using natural light early evening which happens to be my favourite time of the day for photographing.
