Family & Portrait Photography

 

When shooting portraits, whether it be a family, a young child or even a pet, I love nothing better than capturing them in natural, beautiful surroundings. Choosing a location that the subject loves, somewhere familiar, where they feel relaxed is key to getting that special photo to treasure forever. A portrait should tell a story and give a hint to a person’s personality.

This is why I rarely shoot in the studio. I like to make the most of natural light, to create an image that is a snapshot in time, a little piece of history. I strive to create portraits that are two things, a picture of a person as well as a piece of art that you would want to hang on your wall.

If you are interested in me taking some photos for you, or would like to chat about an idea, I would love to hear from you. Please get in touch using the contact form or email me at photography@cerioakes.com.
