IN THE BLUEBELLS

Family

The end of April and beginning of May are wonderful months for outdoor family photography sessions, not least because the bluebells are out in bloom. We are so lucky in Northamptonshire, and have some beautiful bluebell woods at our disposal. You need to be quick to snap up one of these limited sessions as the bluebells don't hang around for long! Weekday evening sessions are fantastic for the lovely warm sunlight, and will be available for older children or those that won't be too grouchy if they're kept out a little late, and I will be able to offer two weekends dates 27/28 April and 4/5 May.

Your clothing choice is very important for these sessions as the woods are often quite dark, so light, pastel colours work really well. Creams, greys and light pinks are perfect. A pop of yellow/mustard in your accessories can also compliment the bluebells. The bluebells make the perfect backdrop so as with all sessions I advise you avoid clothes with cartoons/big logos, stripes and too much of a pattern. All these things detract from your children's faces in the final photographs. If in doubt, just keep it simple.  You can always send me a quick phone snap of your clothing choices laid out so I can advise you if you are unsure.

In addition to your own clothes I have a selection of beautiful tulle dresses for little girls aged between about 3 and 10 depending on sizes which you are welcome to borrow for the session. Please let me know at the time of booking.

Images from your session will make the perfect family portrait to hang on the wall. I offer the most amazing quality Pro Canvas and Acrylic pieces, that are handmade in Italy and can be designed to suit your interior design. All wall art ordered comes with the matching digital image with my compliments so you can share with your friends and family online.

Bluebells are a protected species and I'm always very careful not to destroy any flowers. I ask that you tell your children about it before the shoot and I will let them know to be careful too. We will use pathways and bare patches of ground for our photographs and I have a bunch of artificial flowers for children that want to hold them during the session to ensure none are picked!
Spaces are very limited, so book your session today to secure your session. hello@mirandawaltonphotography.co.uk | 07725 084976

WHEN BABIES DON’T SLEEP

Towards the end of last month I went to a lovely village in Northamptonshire to visit 8 day old baby J, and of course his lovely parents. For only 8 days old, J was very alert and wasn't all that keen on going to sleep! Never a problem though, because as long as your...

BABY AT HOME

I visited the very gorgeous baby B last month at his home in Oxfordshire, what a smiley little chap he was! Baby B is 4 months old, which is such a great age to photograph. When anyone books a session around this age I always ask if their baby is happy on their tummy,...
