Now is the time to book that Bluebell photo session you have always been threatening to do. At Wildgoose Photographics it is one of our busiest times of the year and these slots get booked up fast. So fast in fact, that people were booking before Christmas and I now only have a handful of appointments left.
So, what you can expect on one of our Bluebell photo shoots?
Well, I run back to back 90 minutes sessions all taken at Everdon Stubbs in Northamptonshire, part of the woodland trusts. Please be warned that it can get busy when the bluebells are at their peak and parking is in short supply, so make sure you at the meeting place in plenty of time… Unfortunately, if you run late the time will be lost.
I have been working in this woodland for 3 years now and know it like the back of my hand. This means you can be reassured that I know the best places to go to, as we do a short round circle walk with different backdrops. The age of your little ones will depend on how far that circle goes, so please don’t worry, I don’t push little legs further than they want to go.
Many people ask for clothing recommendations. My advice would be to try not to clash with the bluebells with reds/oranges or blend in with blues/purples. Instead, compliment them with pastel shades of creams/yellows/pinks. If you are coming as a family, try to match, don’t wear a different colour each but try to pick a colour theme that you can all wear.
Feel free to bring any props, I do have a selection of flower crowns that can be used, or you can bring something yourself. Girls do look lovely in pretty dresses, but I am also aware that you may not want them ruined. It can get muddy after a rainfall, so use your own judgement on what to put your little ones in but remember dresses and shorts with wellies can still look pretty cool.
Lastly, Everdon Stubbs is one of the oldest ancient woodlands in our area which means it has had many, many years to mature into a fantastic bluebell setting. It is a magical place that must be respected always, we must remember it is illegal to pick or dig up the bluebells and refrain from trampling all over them. It would be nice to preserve this natural environment for the next generations to enjoy.
