LAVENDER FIELDS 2021: EXPERT FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS

Happy August Folks!

How are you all doing? Well, I hope!

My August has been so packed with beautiful weddings, and I'm kept busy with all of my wedding photography, maybe more so than any other year previously (thanks again covid-19), but I genuinely wouldn’t have it any other way!

However busy I get in the month of August/during the summer months, I ALWAYS like to schedule in my lavender field shoots – weather permitting, of course! These family photography sessions are popular every year, and you can see why! As a documentary family photographer, I absolutely love to capture these family photos at the most perfect location, there really is nothing like them.

Much like blossom season, however, lavender season is also a finite period and can be slightly fickle due to the lovely/unpredictable English weather we have here. I’m always on high lavender alert during these summer months, so that I can pick the perfect time, and week, to book in these gorgeous lavender photoshoots.

As luck would have it, on the day of the shoot, the weather was perfect and getting there early meant that we had rows upon rows of lavender to ourselves! It was the perfect setting for Clare and her precious family, who were looking for authentic natural images of all of them together. I took a natural approach to their documentary family photography, in order to accurately tell their family story, they were able to relax into it, to run around and generally have a fun family outing and photography experience.

When you think of lavender fields, your mind probably instantly wanders to Provence, or at least mine does! But time and time again, I am reminded of the beautiful, almost holiday destination vibes that we have here in the U.K. This was definitely the case when Clare and her family wanted to have their family shoot in the lavender fields in Surrey this August.

THIS BLOG WILL EXPLORE SOME TIMELESS TIPS FOR HAVING A FANTASTIC FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT, PLACING YOU IN THE BEST POSSIBLE POSITION TO FULLY ENJOY YOUR FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY TO THE FULLEST, AT YOUR SURREY.LONDON/SHOOT, MARKING A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER MILESTONE AT THE LAVENDER FIELDS

I thought I’d give a few tips and tricks (as a veteran) if you’d like your photos with no one else in the background, like these images below

  • Visit on a weekday if you can, although I do want to make a note that we visited on a Saturday in the middle of Summer and still got our beautiful photos despite this, so trust me when I say a weekday isn’t your only chance, just your best.

  • Arrive before or as it opens, or when it’s closing.

  • Be creative and look for an empty row to begin with!

I really enjoyed putting this together, and it was genuinely so SOOO lovely to see such a happy family loving each other and having fun in the summer and beautiful lavender.

So please, sit back, take a deep breath, and smell the lavender. It’s one of the many reasons I love the U.K., for all its hidden (or not so hidden but sometimes overlooked) beauty.
