This webpage tells you all you want to learn about a bluebell photoshoot. My name is Lisa and I’m a professional family photographer located in Bristol. I totally adore the yearly spread of bluebells in the woods. I truly think it is a spectacle not to be overlooked.

The bluebell woods are stunning every year and provide the perfect backdrop for your family photoshoot. Not only this, outdoor family photo shoots are fantastic for capturing natural looking photographs.

I love to photograph children and family’s playing in the bluebell woods and would love to photograph your loved ones too.

'Lisa's photographs are wonderful. She captured the most natural photographs of my children in the bluebell woods. She caught them on camera without them even realising it!'

What time of year are the bluebells out?

Each year a blooming of bluebells happens towards the end of April and early May. The bluebells bring with them, warmer weather and spectacular light. The sight is quite uplifting for portrait photos you may hang on your walls.

Where are the bluebell woods located in Bristol?

In Bristol we are so lucky to have amazing bluebell woods so close to the city. You can find them in wooded areas including : Leigh Woods , Blaise, Portbury and Wrington.

At one of these bluebell woods you can book your very own photoshoot. My photos have been award winning and are published in Vogue Italia, so that you know you are going to get quality photos. Additionally, I’m also a reliable family photographer established for more than 7 years in Bristol.

The photoshoots are suitable for all ages

The family photo shoots are ideally suited for babies from sitting upwards. Families, couples and maternity photoshoots are also possible. The location is excellent for all ages. One bluebell wood is on the roadside, perfect for anyone with toddlers or mobility difficulties.

Couples and maternity photoshoots

In addition to family photography I also provide maternity photography.  Maternity pictures are extremely natural in this setting due to the soft lighting. I can also be very creative with light leading to striking images. All sessions are bespoke and your tastes addressed ensuring I capture pictures you will love.

What to wear for your bluebell family photoshoot

I really recommend taking the time to plan your families clothing for a bluebell photography session, to get the best images for your family. As a result I have created clothing idea pinterest boards for you. Please use to plan outfits for your family.

Start with a colour scheme for your family. Some options are a subtle scheme or striking. You will probably know already if you are a person who loves strong bold colours or subtle accents.

Plain clothing will be best with small details, rather than patterned clothing.

colour schemes

Try and pick the whole family colour scheme based around one or 2 colours maximum.

SUBTLE COLOURS: creams, pastel pink, white, pale blue, lilac, tan, light brown.

STRIKING COLOURS: Bright Yellow, Bright Purple, Deep blue/navy, Peachy Orange.

Little accents of colour can also be added with hairbands, hats and accessories such as a toy aeroplane or wands.

A  Complete Photoshoot session

A complete session is the personal 1 -2 hour session in which we explore many different spots of the woods. You may take a picnic, play amongst the flowers or ride your bikes.  I find mostly children run off to play hide and seek games. I follow along with with my camera.

Little children will gladly sit and examine the flowers wherever I put them. A complete session will offer a full picture gallery with a huge variety of photographs. You can reserve a complete session on a day and time convenient for you.

A mini session is 30 minutes long and restricted to one specific area of the woods. The photographer will photograph 5 or 6 families in one day. The time will be restricted to a pre-bookable time slot. If you want to update your child’s or family’s photograph this is the perfect option for you.
