Golden Hour

Most photographers live for “golden hour”….that time of day when the sun is going down, but not set yet, the light is softer and more golden. It’s a lot more pretty for photos than glaring, bright sun light.

Unedited…this was the height of the eclipse for us. still pretty light, but it was such a pretty light. This photo does not do it justice. 

I’m pretty sure we all know there was an eclipse yesterday. Sky was super excited about it, and wanted to go somewhere to view it, and make is special. So we headed to Chambers Bay Park and found our spot in the meadow to watch the show.


I’m not sure what I expected to happen, but that first glance up at the sky with the glasses on and I was floored. Sky was too. She couldn’t get over being able to see the moon in front of the sun.


What I didn’t expect was the amazing light that happened at the peak of the eclipse. We were not in the path of totality so there was still a decent amount of light. It did get noticeable darker, and cooler, but not totally dark. Instead we had this totally amazing golden light that was gorgeous. Made me wish I had a real camera and was ready to take “real” photos. It was so pretty.


Sky thought it was pretty epic to say the least. All I could hear from Sky was “I can see the moon! Mommy this is so amazing. I will remember this forever!”

I love being able to do stuff like this with her!
