Bluebell Photoshoots in South Wales
Book an award winning bluebell photoshoot.
Thank you so much for your interest in booking a bluebell photoshoot with me.
Bluebell season is fast approaching and is a once a year opportunity to experience the enchanting woods unfold into a sea of blue to mark the start of Spring. My Bluebell photoshoot sessions in April, May time, is a perfect time to update your family album with new beautiful photos and every year without fail they are a SELL OUT.
Walking along the woodland paths to see the springtime carpet of bluebells in our local woodlands is a favourite of mine, the scent alone takes me back to my childhood. Every year I look forward to reliving those happy memories and creating the same experience for you during our photoshoot.
With almost half the world’s bluebells being found in the UK. we have plenty of places to chose from. Bluebells are relatively rare in the rest of the world, so it is no surprise that every year I am flooded with people messaging to ask if I am doing “Bluebell” photo session and they have become my most popular family sessions of the year.
Why are my Bluebell sessions limited
Bluebell photoshoot sessions look beautiful, so I thought I would explain why I only do a very select few each year, and what I mean by select is only 4 sessions a year.
Bluebell colonies take a very long time to establish, on average 6 or more years from seed to flower. They are fragile flowers that the flowers can take years to recover after footfall damage, which is why it is essential to stick to the paths, and picking them is a big NO, NO! Most people are very surprised to learn that it is a criminal offence to pick bluebells.
Doing a limited number of Bluebell photoshoots allow me to respect the efforts we go to in order to ensure there is a thriving woodland habitat on our doorstep, it remains open to the public without charge all year round, and not land myself or you with a hefty fine.
How does my Bluebell photoshoots work…
Every year on my visit to a bluebell wood I only release four Bluebell photography sessions. During your Bluebell session I create a beautiful gallery, where you will appear to be sat surrounded by a sea of bluebells, but in fact you are on the woodland path, so no bluebells are damaged, and I use my Photoshop expertise to edit the bluebells in.

The session is relaxed, fun, and guided by your children, this way of working allows us to capture those natural smiles we all love. On our walk around the Bluebell woods I will have dedicated areas where I will use my vintage props, to give you a variety of photos for in your gallery.

What happens after the photo shoot?

If you are thinking of having a bluebell sessions, please make sure you're not actually sat or walk on the bluebells. Before your photoshoot ask your photographer if you will be on the woodland path and if they are creating the illusion that your sat in the Bluebells. As you can see from my photo it is possible.
Bluebells only come once a year and don’t last long, so get out there, enjoy the beauty and respect where we live, so we can enjoy keep enjoying it.
