The choice in and around North Lakes is endless with the number of beautiful locations for family portraits.

You have Lake Eden (you can find the link to that blog post here), North Lakes Woodlands (you can find the link to that blog post here) and now this little gem which I am proud to say another awesome local photographer put me onto!

Family of family of 3 on a track with long grassThis spot is a bit tricky to get to… just off Plantation Road in Dakabin, you will see a big open field with lots of long grass and a few sparse trees. If you didn’t know it was there, you probably wouldn’t notice.

Once we get to the track, there is a definite 5 minute walk to start the session. Up to the rise of this field, along the ridge and then down the other side to start off in the shade of some trees and bushes (on a bright sunny afternoon). We start there.. not venturing too far off the main track and with the sun behind us. The along the path itself and as the sun sets, we slowly make our way up to the top of the hill for sunset and some beautiful images with the late afternoon sun shining through.

Due to it’s semi remote location, there are no toilets here and this spot is really only great in the afternoon, but well worth the walk and the wait for that sun!
