I am looking for a beginner camera that is good for both candid shots and low light nature shots. Does anyone have a recommendation?

What's your budget? Any camera can shoot candids, but if low light nature is a priority, you'll want a newer model with a better sensor and auto focus like the new K-70. Then it's a matter of choosing your lenses.

IF your budget is tight, the K-50 is a great beginner camera with the 18-55mm WR kit zoom, and then you can put your money into faster glass for your low light nature objectives.

Pentax K-S2 (body only) and DA 35mm 2.4

or for a few $ more the K-70 (latest aps-c model,recently launched). Right now the prices for K-S2 is a tad high. You could see it drop in the following days/weekes.
