I have been scouting out new locations to take my clients for outdoor portraits among the spring flowers. And I have discovered some wonderful new places, literally bursting with colour!
Just last week my friend Jackie and I came across this field of vibrant yellow rapeseed. Here’s my daughter Lizzie among them in the gorgeous golden light, just before sunset.
Spring flowers: A photographer’s dream
As always, the beautiful flowers which emerge at this time of year are an absolute delight.
Whether photographed in the morning or at dusk – when you get the best light – daffodils, tulips and blossoms all create a stunning backdrop for outdoor portraits. A photographer’s dream!
Bluebell woods portrait sessions
My first love is the bluebells though. I’m delighted that these beautiful, delicate flowers have emerged once again.
I’ve been busy this past week doing the first of my bluebell woods sessions in my favourite locations across Dorset. Being ever so careful to stick to paths and not damage the crop, of course.
My very own bluebell wood
My own crop of bluebells has some way to go yet – despite planting 3000 in my garden, after a huge excavation project last year, this is what has emerged so far. Excuse the iPhone snap!
It’s certainly progress, but there is some way to get yet! I’m looking forward to being able to photograph clients in my own private bluebells woods in future years though. J
Princess-themed outdoor photoshoots
You’ll notice that several of the portraits I’m sharing here feature princess-inspired dresses.
They come in gorgeous pastel shades and complement the stunning colours of the blossom and bluebells, so are ideal for outdoor portraits among the spring flowers. Aren’t they fabulous?!
What’s even better is that I have them in both adult and a variety of child sizes!
I have been getting some wonderful feedback on these pictures when I share them on my Facebook page, so it seems these are popular with lots of you too.
Timeless outdoor portraits among the spring flowers
However there are just a few slots left for this year as I write this, so if you’d like an outdoor maternity or family portrait session this spring, please don’t delay in booking!
I can create stunning outdoor portraits among the spring flowers that I know you’ll adore all year round, and for years to come. I look forward to hearing from you.
