A friend’s son recently turned two and the family organized a friends and family outing to DierenPark Amersfoort. I immediately knew I would want to take photographs of the day. And as we had never been, I expected our son would love the new experience. It was a great day. Unfortunately, we did not luck out with the weather – there was a huge rainstorm early on in the outing, but hey, it’s the Netherlands. And as they say, there isn’t bad weather, just bad clothing. And we did not come prepared. We did finally buy our son the child-sized umbrella he’s been wanting for ages and he was super happy jumping in puddles. I didn’t bring his boots so there was a bit of a #mommyfail but it all worked out in the end.
Despite the downpour, we all had a wonderful time and we can highly recommend it to families and people wanting a good outdoor activity. Below is a selection of the photographs taken that day. Hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed the outing and as much as I enjoyed shooting these photographs.
