Every year I take my own children to the bluebell woods and I also get to photograph a lot of other families whilst up there. It's been so great to be a part of other families annual bluebell traditions and to see the children I photograph grow each year.
Sometimes the weather isn't always on my side but this year the bluebells were on top form and the weather managed to play ball... even if it was a little muddy. I find children really enjoy a walk around the woods and it's easy to capture relaxed photos of them in this setting. I almost always have a discussion about the Gruffalo or fairies hiding in the flowers. It truly is one of my favourite places to shoot. With the impending opening of my new photography studio (which has the most amazing light! I can't put into words how excited I am) it is nice to still hold outdoor packages, like the bluebells, and I intend to carry on shooting here for many years to come.
I offer family photo sessions at the bluebell woods (Ashridge, Hertfordshire) every year. They appear early May time and only hang around for a few weeks. Be sure to contact me early Spring next year to book your photo session.
