Family Photoshoot in Sandsend, Whitby by Ceri Oakes Photography
Time to share another of my family shoots which was bought as a christmas gift. James bought a voucher for his parents and his brother’s family as a surprise present and arranged for the shoot to take place a couple of days after christmas.
We decided to take the photos at Sandsend, in Whitby, North Yorkshire, as it was a spot that they visit regularly. They all love the outdoors so it was the perfect spot to photograph them as a family, feeling relaxed and enjoying themselves.
They brought the family dogs along too, who occasionally joined in and looked towards the camera!
It was a surprisingly warm day for late December, the sun was very low in the sky, wonderful for keeping warm but a good challenge for a photographer, trying to avoid harsh shadows and squints!
We walked around and tried out shots in different locations, making sure we got the sea in the background with the lovely clean sets of waves coming through.
We had a bit of fun with the pictures too, striking some daft poses, we even had one of the dogs being lifted in the air Lion King style!
Here’s a selection of my favourites from the morning:
