LAVENDER PHOTOGRAPHY FAQS: YOUR ULTIMATE GUIDE

WHAT WILL THIS BLOG COVER? HOW THE LAVENDER CAN ENHANCE THE BEAUTY OF YOUR PHOTOSHOOT, DETAILS ON PRICING, MAYFIELD UK FIELDS, HOW BOOKING (VIA EMAIL...) & TIME OF YEAR (JULY) THAT I SHOOT LAVENDER PHOTOGRAPHY ALL APPLIES. 

Lavender enhances photography by adding a pop of colour, texture, and a sense of tranquillity to the images. Its delicate blooms create a visually appealing backdrop, adding depth and contrast to the composition, making lavender photography captivating and aesthetically pleasing.

As if I didn’t love Summer/August enough already, (not only for all of its sunny days and the happiness that that brings, getting to celebrate Adam’s Birthday or for it being a peak wedding season month)…it’s only lavender blooming season too!

Hiring a professional family photographer for special occasion photos ensures high-quality, timeless portraits that capture your family's unique dynamics and personalities. They provide expertise in lighting, composition, and editing, hopefully resulting in images that you'll cherish for years to come.

As a professional family photographer, my personal family photos showcase genuine moments of love, laughter, and connection, which are my favourite to capture. I strive to capture authentic emotions and create memories that reflect the unique dynamics and personalities of each family I work with.

The lavender farm I go to during lavender season really highlights the beauty of nature, creating the perfect backdrop with rows of lavender, a pop of colour and a fun photo opportunity in the beautiful English countryside.

 

I thought what better blog to write, than one that complies all the questions I get asked about having a shoot at the lavender fields, since they do tend to be rather popular?!

·      Where are the fields? Are they even in the U.K.?

·      Yes, I always go to Mayfield Lavender.

·      Why there?

·      This particular field covers Surrey/London areas, so a large proportion of my clientele. There is ample parking, and they have special rights for photographers (which I love, of course). It’s always rather busy there, but the fields are more than big enough to accommodate everyone and the staff are really helpful (there’s even public loos located by the car park – added bonus!).

·      When is the best time to go?

·      July/August.

·      What is the best timeframe within those months?

·      There are no exact dates for either the beginning or ending of the “prime lavender field photo opts”, but I can assure you, after several seasons here and endless breathtaking photo opportunities, these are the approximate dates for every year.

·      When do you book them for?

·      Early July can be a little too early, although by the end of the month/start of August they seem to be at their best, as this is when the flowers are at their maximum bloom before the harvest season. Nearer to the end of August they start to lose their colour a little (especially if it’s rained a lot – which seems common for August now!) and they also start to be harvested then.

·      We are busy on one of your specific dates, is there a bigger time window/more dates?

·      There’s a bit of flexibility within those three weeks until the final days before the harvest season. I know it is really short. I wish they lasted forever, the smell and the landscapes alone make you fall in love with nature, sunrises and sunsets.

·What’s the best time to have photos taken there?

·My last common question that I get is… what’s the best time for our photos to be taken? In my experience with my clients, the best time is usually between 10am-2pm, especially when working around little ones and their nap/lunch times… or just before sunset – which tends to be more popular with couples/businesses!
