Bluebell Photography Sessions Hertfordshire

Well we have survived the cold snap!  A long Winter, lets hope we can now look forward to some warmer weather and put the Winter behind us.   Spring has certainly been on hold the last few weeks!  Snow is great for the kids, and I love to photograph in it, and I love those cold, sunny frosty winter mornings but now its time for more colourful things! So lets start thinking about all things purple!

About Bluebells and how the sessions work 

Bluebells usually flower mid April through until roughly the first week of May but this often changes from year to year so I find booking the last two weeks of April is fairly safe, I will know nearer the time if I can book into May, last year they became sparse and leggy towards the end of the first week of May so I try and keep to these timelines to start booking.

Most bluebells are found in ancient woodland as they prefer moist, shady conditions and the stability offered by a well-established habitat. Bluebells make the most of flowering early in the spring before the surrounding trees come out in full leaf and completely shade the woodland floor

Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, bluebells are protected and if you dig up and sell a wild bluebell you can be heavily fined!

The first bluebells are believed to have appeared in Britain after the last Ice Age. So they have been around a long time! It also takes at least five years for a bluebell seed to grow into a bulb.

With this in mind when I shoot family portraits in the woods amongst the Bluebells, I take great care not to squash them and usually use clearings, pathways or the numerous logs available to place subjects/families so as not to destroy these beautiful flowers and they are left as we find them for all to enjoy!

My Bluebell shooting locations are in Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted.
