Tea at the centre of the family

This family has a deep connection to tea.

From their historical tea fields in China to studying in Japan, their knowledge and passion for every aspect of this drink is truly remarkable. And so it was extremely special for me to be asked to photograph this genuine tea expert as she passed down her knowledge to her daughter.

Set at Lapito House on the Fleurieu Peninsula, this ceremony was magically slow and peaceful, and watching the younger mind absorbing several generations worth of knowledge was heartwarming.

This type of photo shoot is a real joy - capturing little unscripted moments as people do their favourite thing with their favourite people.
