Documentary Family Photographer Manchester

Going back to see my couples after their wedding day is always a special treat and going to meet a new addition to the family beats nothing else! It is awesome to see the lovely tiny human who has been created in the time that has past, see the changes in the house, the toys of the floor, the photographs, the old spare room that has now been made into a bedroom for their first baby together.

 

Knowing that children grow so fast I love capturing kids at this age, Josef’s tiny feet, hands and gorgeous soft downy hair will slowly grow into something bigger and stronger. There soon will be a point when he doesn’t need help to feed himself, clothe himself anymore, hell he’ll even be able to go to the toilet on his own! These days at the beginning of Josef’s childhood are precious and disappear so quickly.

 

Although parenting though this phase of a child’s life can be challenging and tiring (although Josef was a complete star when I was there!) there’s most definitely a magic to this time in a young families life and it’s a real honor to be able to capture it.

Manchester Documentary Family Photographer - Evie's Birthday Shoot

00064Evie.jpg

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with Evie and her family in their beautiful home in Didsbury, Manchester. It was a cold Autumn morning, thick fog hung in the air like a little bit of Halloween magic was waiting for us outside. It was also the day before Evie’s first birthday. We stayed at home for a little bit while Evie had her bath, some cuddles from Mum and Dad, got dressed and was given some of her birthday presents. These are my favorite type of family photos to take. The normal little parts of Evie’s child hood, little every day things like Evie’s Mum putting her shoes on for her are more special than they might seem at first, there will be a day not too far in the future when Evie will be able to put on her own shoes, get dressed and wont need that help any more and that’s what makes being able to capture this fleeting little piece of Evie’s history extra special.
