Documentary Family Photographer Manchester UK | The Drayton

Coralie is a documentary Family Photographer Manchester Uk with an artistic approach.

Today I’m sharing with you the story of an incredible family. I spent a day in the life of the Drayton family in Manchester to capture the beauty in their normal routine.

When I met Andy and Jane, I immediately felt so welcomed. They are some of the nicest people I know, very humble, enjoying good food and good music and above all cherishing their son Ernie. A lot of families struggle to have children and Ernie is one of these babies who has been wanted and fought for so hard by Andy and Jane. Each moment spent with Ernie is a kind of a miracle for them and I’m so glad I could capture all these little moments that mean so much to them.

On the day I went to photograph their everyday life, the weather was amazing. It was sunny, windy, then snowing and then somehow sunny again. Looking at the pictures you could think that I spent a week photographing them but our journey only lasted from morning till night. This kind of session is my favorite.

I always feel so privileged when I get to capture the intimacy of a family. These are the pictures and video that Ernie will watch in a few years and will remember how his parents really were with them and also how they were altogether, to see and realise the way his parents were loving each other and also loving him so much. To see how he was interacting with the world, the way he was smiling, eating, talking… this is what they will treasure as a archive of their life and for me this is the best gift I can give to people.

ps : I recommend you watch the video in HD (on the top of the article) before taking a look at the photos!


If you’ve enjoyed watching this Day in the Life family session, you will probably love this 24 hours session with the Pavoine Family! <3

The song used in the video is Holocene from Bon Iver one of their favorite musicians.
