Relaxed family photos: the Cope family at home

Relaxed family photo of a family sitting on a blue sofa together, relaxed and laughing


I photographed Laura and Alan’s wedding a couple of years ago, so it was a huge pleasure to visit them for some relaxed family photos at home. Especially with their gorgeous new addition to the family!

With babies, it is always better to have at least part of the shoot at home. Otherwise, they tend to be bundled up in pushchairs or slings, and it’s difficult to photograph them properly. So it worked really well to visit the Cope family for a really relaxed and enjoyable shoot in their own home.

It was wonderful to just hang out with them for a little while, and photograph all the family in their own surroundings. My family photography sessions are always very relaxed anyway, but when you are in your own home, it adds another level to this. You don’t need to pack up lots of stuff and go out – everything you need is right there. Children are always so much more relaxed in their own home as well. I always think that these photographs will mean so much more, just for having been taken in the place that will hold so many other memories over the years. A set of relaxed family photos that really captures things as you recognise them. Images that look like your family, doing what you all normally do, in the most special place of all.
