My favourite relaxed family photography images from 2019


It has been so lovely to look back over a year of relaxed family photography. I’ve put some of my favourite images together for this blog post. I’ve loved catching up with families that I have photographed in previous years, as well as lots of new families that I haven’t met before. There have been large family groups on holiday in the South West. It’s always good to have the opportunity to photograph an extended family get together. And individual families wanting to capture a little slice of family life, spending time together like they normally do, and to photograph this. There have also been the brand new parents, taking the first steps into their own family stories, with those hazy, sleep-deprived, newborn days. There have been shoots on beaches, in fields and forests, and more beaches (well, this is Devon!). Plus – my favourite of all – in people’s own homes. Just hanging out together, doing their normal family thing.

It’s a huge privilege to help create natural and relaxed family photographs that families will treasure for generations to come. I never underestimate the power and importance of capturing all of this. Keeping a photography session as relaxed as possible, means that everyone has fun and can be themselves. The photos then reflect this.

As children grow older, as families change, the images of those times spent together grow ever more powerful. It gives me so huge pleasure to photograph these moments, and to create images that will forever take people back to these precious times together. I can’t wait to do this all over again next year. If you’d like to organise a relaxed family photography session for your own family, please do get in touch.
