Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea by J. Ridout, esteemed Children's photo portrait artist

This lovely 2 1/2 year old is the daughter of a local dentist. She gave us exactly 5 minutes during the sitting, during which time we captured this lovely expression. The tea set is a family heirloom once owned by her great grandmother.

We were quite sure that she would be excited to see the tea set. We were unsure, however, what she would do. Would she try to play tea and accidentally knock it to the ground? We weren’t taking any chances… just off the frame to the right, someone was ready to catch, just in case.
