Vivid – Sydney’s Festival of Light – is my favourite festival of the year – and a great one for families and photographers! The City does such a fabulous job illuminating the City with light, music, interactive exhibits and fireworks for two fabulous weeks. Each year the festival gets bigger and bigger. We didn’t get to see as much as usual this year, but what we did was incredible. And incredibly crowded! We spent one evening down at the height of the festival at Circular Quay. The Custom’s House light show and the lights on the Opera House are always my favourite. I could watch those for hours. There were also more interactive activities for kids with crowd controlled entry which was a big help. Next year we will be sure to go on a Monday or Tuesday when it is a bit less crowded. But despite the crowds it was fun family night. To top it off, we took the ferry there and back allowing us to see the lights from the water. The last photos of the Opera House were taken from the ferry. It was a spectacular sight! And the kids always love taking the ferry. Can’t wait til next year!
I’d love to photograph your family enjoying something special about Sydney. Contact me to book your session!
