So another year rolls in, and another long-awaited bluebells season! This is an extremely popular time for family photography. ¬†Of course, there are many reasons why you’d want to wait until May/April for your family photo session. Warm, dry weather is one of them ūüôā But the opportunity to have your children’s photographed in a carpet of bluebells is also a very strong contender!

Every year during April and May, I photograph a number of families at a picturesque woodland location near Winchester. Itchen Woods is one of the country’s most famous bluebells locations, with its striking display of blooms and delicious golden light on a sunny day.

It is one such day last weekend, that I had the pleasure of photographing the W family again. Bluebells portraits have become something of a tradition with this Newbury family, whom I last saw three years ago. The time had come to update the portraits of their beautiful daughter A, so off we went for a morning of family portraits at our go-to woodland location. It was, as always, a pleasure to spend time with A, who has become a confident, smart young lady with an irresistible sense of humour. Here is one of my favourite images from the day, whilst I edit the rest of the set for the family to view.
