Hitchin Lavender Photography | Fine Art

Each season brings something exciting to photograph for me. It’s why I chose the name Little Seasons Photography when I decided to turn my hobby into a potential career move. I didn’t want to be stuck in a studio, I wanted to let nature be the backdrop of all my imagery- come rain or shine!

The lavender season is definitely one of my favourites, and it wouldn’t be right to not enjoy this stunning season if you can!

There are a few lavender fields around the UK, but the nearest one to Essex and Hertfordshire is in Hitchin

I had a few client sessions there last week, and in between sessions I snapped a few pictures of my kids too. It’s a great annual event for us. My photography has certainly changed since the first time I went!

Hitchin Lavender is a wonderful place to visit, the entrance fee isn’t that much at all (£6.00 an adult, £3.00 for under 14’s and free for 0-5 year olds) and in return you can cut the lavender yourself to bring home.

There is an on site cafe, a little play area for the kids and facilities to allow you to stay for as long as required.

Because of how popular my last session was, I’ll be holding one more lavender session on the 30th July from 6pm to take advantage of the setting sunlight.

If you’d like to book in a session with me just ping me a message. My fine art packages are £150.00.

End Of Life Photography | Cambridge Photographer

End of life photography is a difficult session to consider. And it’s certainly not for everyone.

The pictures I’m showcasing in this blog post are of my Father, and as hard as it was taking these pictures, it really has given me a sense of understanding and closure since his passing.

These pictures not only show how loved he was, and how much he loved in return- particularly his grandchildren. But the pictures also show his bravery and that real strong fighting spirit that he held onto. But also the occasional realisation that showed when he didn’t think we were looking.

There is a sadness when I see these pictures, but also a great ability to still feel and see that connection. And that’s what I’m trying to capture during end of life sessions. The connection that remains between people and the small details of their being.

It’s really important to me that I can offer these type of sessions to others as I hold these pictures really dear to my heart.

End of life sessions aren’t typically sad affairs, it’s just family photography in a very natural, unscripted manner. They can be fun, joyous and beautiful.

Strawberry Picking At Cammas Hall Farm | Hatfield Broad Oak

With the summer season upon us, it’s time for me to really capture the essence of the holidays with my children. And where better to start than with some strawberry picking- a childhood right of passage in the summer months.

In desperate need of some strawberries I decided to drive to Cammas Hall Farm in Hatfield Broad Oak. I like the idea that we can avoid the plastic wastage of supermarket bought strawberries, while also supporting a great local business. Plus it’s a fun activity!

If you’ve not been to Cammas Hall Farm I recommend doing so, not only can you pick a variety of fruit and vegetables yourselves, but they also have a great fenced off play area for little ones including cars, slides and a sandpit. Bigger children can clamber on huge tyres or use the swings and a larger slide.

If you’d like to capture the essence of summer with a strawberry picking family session, just let me know!

Documentary Style Newborn Photography | Littlebury

I adore the wonderful Jennifer. As soon as I met her for a maternity session we just clicked. She wears the most magnificent bohemian style floaty dresses and is just utter perfection. I could rave about her all day long.

We scheduled in a newborn documentary session to take place at her home after the arrival of her little boy, but after quite a traumatic labour we decided to wait a little bit until she felt more at ease. So these pictures were taken a little later than the usual 2 week window normally scheduled.

As luck would have it, her mother was visiting at the time from America so it was a great chance to get some family pictures that can be treasured by Grandma too!

Fine Art Family Photography | Stansted

Keeping my kids up way past bed time is always a mixture of emotions, I really enjoy my free time when they’ve gone to bed. But with the days stretching out the sunsets definitely encroach on my evening time. But it’s worth it.

I always tell my clients if they can, to try and book sunset sessions, nothing compares to that even light as it falls on the subjects skin and that beautiful glow that happens in the evening sky.

In fact this photo session with my kids was taken on the Summer Solstice. Officially the longest day of the year.

Minus a few less hours to myself in the evening, bedtime that night was actually really easy. Straight to bed for them and straight into an editing session for me.
