Bluebell photography sessions

Every spring I get so excited for the bluebells to bloom and create that incredible blanket of lilac. It is such a beautiful natural event that people travel from all over the world to see it. We are very lucky to have so many stunning bluebell locations on our door step here in Hertfordshire.

Where to see the bluebells

The most popular place to see the bluebells in the area is at Dockey Woods within Ashridge estate but these woods got so busy, to the point that they now charge entrance on the weekends.

A couple of years ago I went hunting for the perfect bluebell location that hadn’t yet been discovered.  No one wants crowds of people around while they are trying to enjoy time with their family in front of the camera. After a little research I discovered Whippendell woods (off Grove Mill Lane). At first I noticed the odd bluebell running along the side of the road so I parked up to take a closer look. It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for and now I shoot all my bluebell sessions here.

The woods are off the beaten track and quite large so avoiding other people is easy to do but the greatest thing is that there are beautiful pockets of bluebells throughout the woods with plenty of diversity for photos.

Whippendell woods has so much to offer, with fallen trees, tree stumps and little pathways well positioned throughout the flowers. It is a great place to capture families and children playing together.

Not only are these woods great for my bluebell mini sessions but with a park located on one side of the woods it’s also great for a family day out.

My bluebell photography sessions can be adapted for whatever kind of shoot you would like, whether it be just for the children, the whole family, a couple’s session or a maternity shoot. I can tailor the session to suit everyone.

Bluebell Photography Sessions

Each year I offer a limited number of sessions in the bluebells during a short window around April & May.

There is usually a two week window when the bluebells are at their best. The dates change each year slightly depending on the weather and temperature but fall around the last two weeks of April and can stretch into the first week of May. This means there is a limited number of weekend sessions available so booking a session in early is the only way to guarantee your preferred date and time.

This year the sessions will be running from the 24th of April to the 6th of May, dates may vary slightly if the flowers develop at a slightly different rate than expected.
