Well, I never thought I would say this, but I really should of planned ahead in order to allow people to make the most of the wonderful spring environment! I managed to go on a few walks and discover some amazing places to take photos recently… but I’ve only had a handful of shoots in the great outdoors this spring because people weren’t aware that these beautiful locations are even an option! So, I’ve decided that it’s a good idea to put it out there a whole year ahead so you guys can ponder over whether or not you’d like to book a shoot in advance for 2017! Spring really is the most wonderful time to take advantage of the beauty of nature. With flowers in bloom and the sun starting to shine, it really could make for a perfect backdrop to your family photos. Or why not book a romantic shoot for yourself and your partner?
Here are some photos I took of my sister in the local rapeseed fields. We had so much fun taking these as the sun was setting and she is now using these images as part of her promotional material for her business. By early June the flowers had gone to seed, so there really is a small window of time, about a month or so, to take advantage of this beautiful backdrop.
I stumbled upon some gorgeous bluebells on a walk too. They had blossomed in late April/early May… So what do you do when you have no one to photograph? Take photos of yourself of course! I set up the tripod and the remote shutter and jumped in amongst the bluebells. Apologies for the vain poses, but overall I am really happy with the outcome! Bluebells often grow this prolifically in woodlands, so it’s definitely a shoot that needs to be done mid-day in order for us to take advantage of good, intense lighting that can get through the dense forest canopy.
I would absolutely LOVE to do a family shoot here in the future – How cute would small kids look playing here? If you would be interested in booking ahead for a bluebell shoot at the beginning of May 2017, please don’t hesitate to contact me – All I’d need is a 10% deposit in advance and I can book you into my diary asap!
Don’t just make memories – Capture them, frame them and relive them every day! If you have any lovely locations you would recommend or want to use for yourself, just let me know and I’ll see what I can do!
