A relaxed, outdoor family photoshoot by Ceri Oakes
This summer I headed into Mulgrave Woods near Whitby to photograph a grand total of seven adults and eight children. They say never work with children and animals but I love the challenge of capturing photos of children.
And where better to do it than with an adventure into the woods. Natural light and fresh air makes for lovely photos of young people, and they seem most relaxed in these settings.
On my family shoots I take a mixture of set up group shots as well as just capturing the moments. Being outside is great as the more formal photos can still look relaxed and natural while making sure everyone is included and looking at the camera.
Mulgrave Woods in Whitby are open to the public on weekends and Wednesdays.
