If you’re looking for beautiful photos of your children and family, a lavender session in summer offers the perfect backdrop.

Take advantage of the long, hazy days, late sunsets and a stunning landscape of purple blooms, and you have all the ingredients for a series of stunning family portraits to hang proudly on your walls.

Lavender Sessions – July 2020

That’s why I’m delighted to announce the return of my limited edition ‘Lavender Sessions’ for July 2020. These short family photo shoots 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 late summer sun shortly before sunset, only four evening sessions are available so book early to avoid disappointment.

Mayfield Lavender Farm, Banstead | Monday 27 July 2020 | 20-25 minute sessions

A Fun Family Adventure

Designed as a family day out with a difference, an outdoor photo shoot with me is a rare opportunity to capture those special moments that make your family unique.

Each session is at least 20 minutes long, giving us plenty of time to have fun, chase butterflies and play games, and take some beautiful images that you are going to want to hang on your wall, all while maintaining social distancing guidelines (and no need to wear masks!).

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 to check out the natural lavender products, sample tasty home-made cakes or take a walk in the stunning countryside nearby. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy the buzz of nature amongst beautiful surroundings with the blooming lavender. Most of all, soak up the sights, sounds and scents of this spectacular landscape. It’s your moment, so savour it.

Book your spot now

Booking for these sessions has just opened but spaces are strictly limited, so book now to guarantee your spot.

The price is just £125 per family and includes the following:

  • a quick pre-session consultation appointment via video call so I can find out a little about your family and why you want professional photos
  • a helpful guide full of useful information to help you prepare for your session, including tips on what to wear and exactly what to expect
  • a 20-25  minute mini photo shoot in the gorgeous lavender fields
  • location shooting fees for portrait photography at the lavender farm
  • hand-editing of at least 15 images from the session
  • your favourite image as a gorgeous 7×5″ mounted gift print, perfect for putting in your own frames
  • the option to upgrade to a special bundle of your five favourite images for just £250, plus matching digital files (via online download), for making unlimited personal prints
  • a live online design consultation when you choose the images included in your bundle and can also select from a range of beautiful hand-made frames, albums and wall products available for purchase for displaying your images in your home

Mini sessions are a fantastic way to get a professional photography experience for a bargain price and because they’re short it’s also easier to get reluctant dads on board!

The normal price for the five-print bundle package would be more than £750 so this represents considerable savings. You are welcome to upgrade your package to one of my excellent value collections, or to add more prints and products, but you are under absolutely no obligation to do so.

Summer has always been a great time to head outdoors for a family portrait session. So, if you’ve been meaning to find a professional photographer to capture your family’s memories, what are you waiting for? There’s no time like the present to book your lavender session with Victoria Rowe Photography.
