Lavender field photoshoot in Hitchin and Mayfield
Romantic and fun family photos in lavender field
Family photos in lavender field are relaxed and romantic. Children are freely running around and parents can play “peekaboo” with them behind the sheaves of lavender. This is a perfect family scenery for me and taking lavender family pictures is pure joy. I can’t say the same for the scent, though, as I am not the biggest fan of it (fun fact). However, seeing all the smiling faces, couples in love and loving family moments, takes away that “problem”. I am creating lavender field photoshoot every year on Mayfield lavender farm and Hitchin lavender.
Both farms are similar with beautiful purple fields. In Hitchin, you can pick your own lavender, while in Mayfield, you can sit under the big tree in the middle of the field. We start with the photoshoot around mid-July when the lavender is first ready for harvest.
What to expect from the photoshoot in lavender field
Portraits and family photos in lavender are gentle, romantic and dreamy. I can say the same for my photo editing style (natural and soft look). Because of that (and to have really dreamy photos) the dress code is important too! I will get in touch with you a couple of weeks before our session and run all the information by you (or answer any questions).
But first, you need to start with an inquiry as these slots tend to fill up very quickly. Lavender photoshoot is limited to morning hours (due to overcrowding) and most of my slots are fully booked by May/June, already. However, if the lavender photography is not for you (perhaps you don’t like the scent or you are afraid of the bees), then maybe you can join me in spring at the bluebells mini session.
Photography in the lavender field is also a little more expensive than my other mini sessions. This is due to the additional location shooting fee I am covering as well.
Selection and editing of your lavender family photos
A few days after the session, I will send you a link to your personal online gallery. You can then choose the photos you like the most or decide for some extra, too.
In the following weeks, (I am quite busy during this time), I’ll professionally edit your images from the lavender field and create your high-res gallery with free download. Most of the time (while editing the photo) I am able to remove all intruders (e.g. non-family members – visitors on the field). However, not always can I do that (without damaging the photo).
Your new family portraits created in the lavender field will look great in bright places of your home, photo albums or social media.
