Would you love some beautiful photos of your family
in the stunning lavender fields?

I’m running a morning of family mini sessions in July 2018 in the lavender fields in Surrey.

“Love, love, love the photos! In 20 minutes you have captured some beautiful photos which we will cherish forever. I’m excited! I can’t thank you enough.”

When are the mini sessions?

Mayfield Lavender Farm, Banstead | Wednesday, 25th July 2018
20 min sessions available: 08.40, 09.15, 09.5010.20, 11.05

Where will they be?
They will be held at Mayfield Lavender Farm, Banstead, SM7 3BE. There is parking there and a lovely cafe to treat yourself after the shoot!
How are mini sessions different from a full custom session with you?

I’m glad you asked that question as I have a whole page dedicated to the answer! You can read it here.

A mini photo session is perfect for you if:
– you are looking to update your existing family photos
– you are wanting to try out lifestyle photography for the first time and see if it’s for you. What better place than surrounded by a sea of purple!
– you want to buy the session as a present for someone special (I have lovely gift vouchers available!)
A full custom session would be better for you if:
– you have more than 2 children. I need more than 25 mins to do your lovely big family justice! If they are all over the age of 2.5 yrs and will take direction then we should be fine! Please contact me to check if a mini session is suitable for you.
– any of your children are particularly shy or wary of strangers. During a custom session there is no rush and I’ll give them all the time they need to warm up to me.
– or the opposite, any of your children are a little hard to tame! If you don’t think your child will take any direction then it’s probably best to book a full session!
– you or your children are very frightened of bees. Sounds a bit random but there can be a lot of bees at the lavender fields and it might take them some time to get used to them. They are definitely more interested in the lavender than us but it’s not the best place for someone with a phobia of bees!
What can we expect?
I’ll photograph you all having a lovely time together. I will direct you to the right spot so you are in the best light, and then capture you having fun together.
I will also spend some time individually with your children and get lots of great shots of them on their own too.
Can I see the results of the last lavender mini sessions you did?

Of course! I have been running mini sessions in the lavender fields for 6 years now. You can look through them all here on my blog.

How much are the mini sessions?

The price is £340 per family which includes the following:

– email questionnaire sent to you beforehand so that I can find out more about your family
– ‘what to expect’ guide giving tips on what to wear and how to brief the kids!
– 20 minute mini photo shoot in the lavender fields (£25 of the fee goes towards the location shooting fee)
– secure online gallery with 15 fully edited images live for 5 days
– a beautiful gift box delivered to your door containing four 8×6″ mounted gift prints of your chosen images and the same high resolution images on USB flash drive ready to print

The normal price for the above package would be over £650 so this offers considerable savings. You are welcome to order additional prints and products but you are under no obligation to do so.

And what if the weather is bad?

If the skies are grey, then that’s no problem and the mini sessions will go ahead. If it is raining then you need to be available at the same time on Thursday 26h July 2018.

If it’s raining on that day too (please no!) then I will refund your deposit in full or you can reschedule to another mini session date in the future.

Why are you running these mini sessions on a weekday?

I run my other mini sessions on a weekend morning as it’s easier for working parents. However the lavender fields get really busy at weekends, so I find it much better to shoot there during the week when the fields are quieter.

I’m holding the morning during the summer school holiday so you can attend with school-age children.

It all sounds great….how do I book? Please fill in this contact form and say which time slot you would like ideally, then I’ll send you a booking form and an invoice for the £180 deposit to reserve your session. Sessions will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and won’t be confirmed until payment is received. They tend to book up very quickly so be quick!

I look forward to meeting you and your family and creating a beautiful set of photographs for you.
