Teatime with George
Documentary Family Photoshoot Derby
As a documentary-style family photographer, I’m a fierce defender of the everyday. It passes without our really noticing, sometimes it bores us, sometimes we wish time away. But all the while, time is slipping by. Babies are turning into toddlers, they’re making new discoveries, becoming their own people. Their faces change, they stop being so clumsy, and before we know it their baby years are behind us.
This is why George’s parents wanted an everyday event – tea time, bath time and a story – so that they can remember.
George was one a few days before this shoot at their home in Derby. It was an hour long, but I could have easily spent a whole afternoon photographing this lovely boy and his kind parents. This is their everyday.
