Take advantage of the long, hazy days, late sunsets and a stunning landscape of purple blooms, and you have all the ingredients for a stunning series of family portraits to proudly hang on your walls.
That’s why I’m delighted to introduce my limited edition ‘Lavender Sessions’ this summer. Only available on a few dates in July and August, these tailor-made photography sessions take place at a stunning location just an hour outside London. The lavender fields only bloom for a limited time, so miss it or miss out. And if you love the golden glow of the sun shortly before sunset, only two sunset sessions are available so book early to avoid disappointment.
Complimentary Mounted Portrait for Early Bookers
The fee for each lavender session is just £125 and if you arrange your complimentary pre-session consultation by Friday, 9th June, a stunning 8×10″ mounted portrait will be included in your fee when you book*.
This fee covers:
- the pre-session consultation appointment
- my time and talent, including travel to and from the destination and at least an hour’s shooting time at the location
- location fees for portrait photography at the lavender farm
- hand-editing of your gallery of images from the session (minimum of 20)
- your viewing and ordering appointment, including design consultation, when you choose which images you want to purchase
A Fun Family Adventure
Designed as a family day trip with a difference, a professional portrait session with me is a rare opportunity to capture those special moments that make your family dynamic unique.
And unlike many lavender sessions, you won’t have just 20 minutes for your photo shoot, forcing smiles and hoping your children behave. Instead, you’ll have a full hour being photographed at the lavender farm, playing games, chasing butterflies and having fun.
Either pick your own flowers or just enjoy the buzz of nature while your children dance between blooming lavender. Most of all, soak up the sights, sounds and scents of this spectacular landscape. It’s your moment, so savour it.
Spend the day
And if you want to really make a day of it, you are welcome to turn up early, or stay on after your lavender session ends. Head to the shop full of natural lavender products, sample tasty home-made cakes or walk in the stunning countryside nearby. Even bring a picnic. There’s plenty to do.

*Subject to terms and conditions
The fee to reserve your session is just £125. This covers your photography portrait session, the location fee for the lavender farm, editing of your gallery of images, and the viewing and ordering appointment, usually around 7-14 days after your session.
The lavender farm location is around 1hr 15mins’ drive from my studio near Twickenham, depending on traffic. An alternative location is available on request, but an additional fee may be charged.
Sessions are for up to 5 family members. Children must be able to sit unaided to take part, so these portrait sessions are not suitable for babies under 6-8 months old.
A complimentary pre-session consultation is available before booking your session to make sure a professional portrait session with me is the right fit for you. You are not obligated to book.
A range of beautiful products are available for purchase at the viewing and ordering appointment after your session. Prices start from £495 and are available at your pre-session consultation.
Except when booking before 4th June 2017, no products are included in the session fee. If you arrange your complimentary pre-session consultation on or before 4th June 2017, a single 8×10″ mounted portrait will be included in the session fee.
Viewing and ordering appointments will take place at my studio in Isleworth, which is close to Twickenham Stadium.
Sunset slots are allocated on a first-come, first served basis.
Lavender fields can be an overwhelming environment for some small children, with lots of smells and sounds. If you have any concerns about whether this is suitable for your child, please raise them with me before booking.
