Planning your perfect bluebell photoshoot
in Nottingham

At certain times of the year a little bit of magic happens when nature generously gives me the most beautiful settings for photoshoots. Bluebell season is one of these little pockets of magic. Bluebells are always hugely popular so I though I’d put together a guide to planning bluebell photoshoot in Nottingham, because there are few things you really must consider before booking. Let me tell you more..

Timing of your session

Bluebells are unpredictable little things. They bloom at different times every year and are at their best for only about 2-3 weeks. Usually the season is between end of April and beginning of May. 

Location of Bluebells Photoshoot in Nottingham

My favourite location for Bluebells Photoshoot is a small  old Sherwood Forest in Nottingham, but there are some things to consider. The bluebell area is set on a slight slope and the flowers can be damp and slippy. I advise everyone who is coming to wear sensible shoes, boots or wellies. It can also get a bit chilli as we are under the canopy of trees, be sure to bring something warm to wrap up in should you need to.

Styling your family for Bluebell photo session- What to wear

Clothing choice is very important when during session with the bluebells. Your base colour pallete in all your images is going to be quite an acidic green and a very vibrant purple/ blue. Ideally  your clothing needs to fit with this colour scheme and I tend to use neutral tones such as cream, grey, light pink etc.
