Bluebell Mini Sessions


Bluebell Photography Berkshire


I am so pleased to be able to announce that after last years amazing response, I will be offering my Bluebell Mini Sessions again this year!

I love this time of year! When after what feels like a long winter, colour finally begins to reappear; the trees start to blossom and the daffodils are already in full bloom. We're then treated to a spectacular display of bluebells, transforming our woodlands with their intense colours and providing us with the most amazing backdrop for family photography sessions.

Bluebell mini sessions are short and fun! Perfect for updating your family photos or giving as a gift to your nearest and dearest. The sessions are 30 minutes long, so shorter than a standard family photography session (meaning they are great for families with smaller children!). These sessions are only bookable on certain dates.

The Bluebells tend to bloom towards the end of April and into May, so I have chosen a few selected dates (as detailed below). The Bluebell Mini Sessions are very relaxed and natural, we'll take a gentle stroll through the woodland whilst choosing some little areas to stop and include as backdrops. The session don't involve any heavy posing, just maybe a little direction along the way.

Included in a Bluebell Mini Session :

  • a 30 minute session in local bluebell woodland

  • 20 digital downloadable hi-res images

  • a password protected on-line gallery to share with family & friends



(mid week sessions are available at a discounted price of £75)

These Bluebell Mini Sessions are very popular, early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment!!

Important information :

  • a booking fee of £25 would be required to secure your slot, this would be deducted from your session fee. This would be non refundable for any no-shows or cancellations. If you do need to reschedule due to circumstances out of your control, it would be subject to availability without the other selected dates above.

  • the balance would be due 2 weeks prior to your session

  • these sessions cannot be booked using any other offer or with part payment from any gift certificateoOnce booked I will send over a guide on what to wear to help you get the most from your images

  • these sessions would not be suitable for newborn babies, any children would need to be able to sit unaided

  • Bluebells are a protected flower and need to be treated as so, extra care is needed to step amongst them and not to cause any damage. Picking Bluebells is strictly prohibited!

  • please arrive 10 minutes early for your session as there is little wiggle room between each family. Late arrivals could result in the cancellation of the session

  • as time is limited with these sessions, I would suggest a maximum of 5 family members. Please let me know if you would like to include more people, I can then double up the session to allow for extra time

  • if heavy rain is forecast, we may need to reschedule, however, if its only slightly raining on the day I would suggest bringing an umbrella for time in between shots, we are in woodland anyway so should be pretty protected

  • these sessions will include some gentle walking through the woodland, but please be aware of wet, slippery and uneven surfaces. Please wear appropriate footwear. 

Please contact me for any further information.
