Helen Bartlett / Family Portraiture

Memories of a family day, not a family photo shoot.


Being a children’s photographer myself, I had high hopes and expectations of how Helen would approach our shoot and what she would come up with. I was not disappointed.

The measure of a social documentary photographer is their ability to get cracking images that convey the spirit of what is happening with no interference in those events. We hardly noticed that Helen was there, and the memories of the day that Helen came to photograph us are of a family day, not a family photography shoot.

But the real proof is always in the pudding – and for that just look at the images!
