18. Meal Time

"A cheeky throwback to a quiet dinner round mum's"

Family Photography Now, directive and week 18: Share a photograph that captures your family mealtime

“Many photos we take of food these days are carefully edited for social media. They’re often a world away from the chaotic and joyful mealtimes we have with our families and they don't represent the food people really eat at home together. 

For me, there’s no editing when it comes to eating with my family. The kitchen table is where we can be completely ourselves. It’s where we eat simple flavourful food (not the showing-off kind) and talk more, care more, share more and live more than we do anywhere else in the house.”
