I do love family photography, since having Dexter I have a new-found appreciation for family shoots and the importance of having them done. Todays shoot is just beautiful, set amongst the most gorgeous lavender field, photographer Victoria Mitchell has done an amazing job of capturing the variety of families in this wonderful collection of photos. I love the soft tones in these images, the warm sunlight is just beautiful! There is a super cute boy in these photos who looks just as I imagine Dexter will look when he is older!
I’ll pass you over to Victoria to tell us a bit more about the shoot……
I absolutely love the lavender fields in Hitchin during the summer months, row after row of beautiful purple flowers that give off an amazing sweet smell that just makes you feel homely somehow. I often take my daughter there and she loves nothing more than to run freely up and down the rows and look at the flowers. I decided it would be a great idea to organise a couple of family shoot days there for couples or families that would love some images and as I would be booking several slots in one day I would be able to keep the cost down for them. I’ve now been running the days over the past 3 years and each year I get new as well as returning clients….it’s great to see previous families again as I get to see their children grow up…or even the new additions to the families! Some of my clients are also previous wedding couples of mine which is lovely. This year also went very well and I met some fabulous people whilst being able to spend the days in one of my most favourite places!
