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

I’m running a magical evening of family mini sessions in July 2022 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.”

Where will they be?
They will be held at Mayfield Lavender Farm, Banstead, SM7 3BE. I’m hiring the field out for the evening, so it be free of the usual crowds (hooray!) plus with any luck we’ll have that gorgeous golden evening light.
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 spend 20 minutes photographing 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.
I know it’s probably not your idea of fun to have a camera pointed at you, but I pride myself on getting the best out of everyone, big and small! And it’s only 20 minutes shoot and I find a quick shoot suits most children (and most reluctant Dads!)
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 10 years now. You can look through some of them here on my blog.

How much are the mini sessions?

The price is £385 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 £750 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 the evening of Thursday, 22nd July 2021.

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 evening?

If you’ve ever been to the lavender fields at the weekend you’ll probably understand why! They get incredibly busy which makes it difficult to shoot there.

Over the years, I have found weekday mornings getting busier too, so I have decided to hold my minis there in the evening for the first time.

I’m hiring the fields out for the evening, so it will be without the crowds and hopefully we’ll get some lovely golden light. So just pack some PJ’s for the kids to go home with and see it as a fun family evening trip out. And the school holidays will have just started so no early morning rush the next day! 😍

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 £190 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.

“I totally love all of the pictures. Thank you so much for creating these beautiful photographs of our family which have captured the children’s personalities so perfectly. You have such an amazing talent to be able to identify and capture the defining moment.

Looking at the images fills me with pride and happiness every time I look at them. There is no doubt at all that we will see you again, I am addicted!”

“Just a quick note to say thank you for the lovely pictures and CD, Amelia immediately declared it was ‘Mama’s birthday’ when she saw the beautiful packaging! The photos are gorgeous. We will treasure them as always, they capture us beautifully at a very happy point in life.”
Sophia & Kash, Surrey

“The mini session was a lot of fun and felt very natural, which came through in the photos. Vicki is a real talent, capturing not just wonderful photos but memories that will be treasured forever.”
