Lavender with Love

Back to blog

Our first Lavender Field day was a big success with some gorgeous photos to show for it. We’ve since decided to extend our bookings for these shoots for families that would like to book on a weekday while the lavender lasts (mid to late August). If you missed this shoot day and would like to arrange a booking for this year, be sure to get in touch.

One of the shoots from the day was with a few familiar faces. We first met Angela and her husband back in 2011 when Julia had photographed their big day. As Julia shoots less weddings now and focuses on portraiture, it’s great to see all of her wedding clients again with one or two additions to their family.

“Our photos from the day are fantastic and something we will always treasure. We have a beautiful large canvas in our home and we both knew if we had a child, we’d love Julia to take some photos for us.”

Like their wedding a few years ago, Julia made the whole experience fun without the stress. Having shoot days out at special locations such as the lavender fields gives us the opportunity to create stunning portraits as well as give clients a fun day out (in this case out of the city), which is always a bonus. The day easily can become as memorable as the images we are able to take.

As with most families, there is usually someone who would rather not be in front of the camera and would happily be the one behind the scenes. We completely understand this but certainly encourage both parents to take part and be present in the portraits with their children. After all, they will be the ones treasuring these images and won’t care what you look like in them.

Perfect family shoot for summer

“My husband in particular isn’t a fan of having his photo taken yet he relaxed and enjoyed himself, we both felt confident Julia would capture some great photos for us.”

When speaking about Julia, Angela described her as “energetic, fun and easy to be around” and considered the experience professional but relaxing.

“She takes photos so quickly you aren’t even aware half of them are being taken and somehow you always look good in them which certainly doesn’t happen with other photographers we’ve encountered. From the photo shoot through to the viewing, everything is handled beautifully and you know you’re going to walk away with amazing photos, the trouble will be narrowing them down as we discovered!”

Family Fact File:

How old is your child? 14 months old.

What’s her favourite toy? She has a few, she particularly loves her Upsy Daisy doll from In The Night Garden.

What’s her favourite book? She’s a big fan of ‘That’s not my’ books with her favourite being ‘That’s not my monkey.’

What’s your top parenting advice tip? Don’t get too stressed! I think we were both quite anxious the first few months. Being a first time parent is a huge learning curve and we worried a lot! 14 months down the line, every day is different with new challenges so we try to relax and enjoy things more.

Where’s your favourite family spot in London? We live very near Wandsworth common, it’s great for lovely walks with a good park for our daughter and a little cafe where she enjoys some baby classes.

What’s your favourite kids clothing brand? There’s a few but I think my favourite has to be Zara.
