Hitchin Lavender Photoshoots
Hitchin Lavender in Hertfordshire is one of my favourite places for picturesque family photoshoots.
From the purple, rolling hills that dominate the landscape, and the occasional tractor for working farm authenticity, Hitchin Lavender at Cadwell Farm (just outside Ickleford near Arlesey on the Hertfordshire / Bedfordshire border) provides the perfect backdrop for beautiful family and children photographs.
The unmistakable scent of lavender and the humm of the bees make it the quintessential English countryside photoshoot location. Not only that – the awesome cake is unmissable for post shoot refuelling, and the wooden play area near the cafe is ideal for for post shoot climbing fun. All in all there’s plenty on offer to make a real occasion of your photoshoot.
These are a few of my favourite shots from previous shoots.
Photoshoots at Hitchin Lavender are fun, colourful, and a super way to spend a couple of hours whilst capturing some lovely family moments.
Remember your sunscreen and factor in a half hour post shoot for a coffee and a cake from the farm cafe 😉
A side note that there’s a fee to pay for booking your photoshoot at Hitchin Lavender – the farm charge the fee to help cover their costs. But if you’re keen on creating a gallery of family photos busting with colour it’s a gorgeous spot and highly recommended.
Information on my costs, packages and how to book your own family photoshoot is over here and if you’d like to find out more just give me a call or send me a note – I’d love to chat.
