Finding the perfect setting for my bluebell sessions is always quite a big task, you wouldn’t believe the amount of sites that are owned by the Sussex Wildlife Trust, National Trust or are just privately owned.
The perfect location has to be easily accessible from Crawley & Horsham, have parking, not be a long walk from said parking and above all else, pretty!
This year my saving grace came in the form of my very good friend Perri, who runs her own forest school, Two Muddy Boots, who is at one with nature and pretty clued up on the local area.
She suggested a small woodland area behind a lovely local village hall, who happily granted me permission.
Last year I was surprised that my bluebell mini’s sold out in under 48 hours, this year I was utterly shocked when they sold out in less than 3 hours!
I hastily added another day so that I could total an epic 18 sessions.
I met so many amazing families during these days, from tiny babies just a few weeks old to the coolest of teenagers – every single one was an absolute pleasure, and the many 2 year old boys kept me on my toes!
I also got to photograph one of my 2019 wedding couples who I will be seeing again soon on their big day at Cissbury Barns, can’t wait!
Each session was as unique and individual as the family but I would like to think that every single person that came along had fun.
During the course of the shoots we had bug hunting, stick searching, tickle wars, piggy backs, races, stare offs and even a wedding dress!
I hope that you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them, thank you so very much to everyone. See you all next year xx
