Celebrating a First Birthday with a Family Photoshoot at Mayfield Lavender Fields

Family, Family Adventures

What could be better than capturing beautiful memories with your family in a stunning location? If you’re looking for an unforgettable experience, then look no further than Mayfield Lavender Farm. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing a family of four on their trip to the lavender fields. They were celebrating their youngest daughter’s first birthday, and it was truly magical!

Wonderful Props for Photos

The family brought along some wonderful props for the photos including a gold crown and a wooden basket. As well as this, I borrowed a bunch of lavender from the shop so that the girls would have something to hold in their pictures and stop them from picking the flowers. It was a great way to make sure they stayed still while we captured some amazing moments!

Photoshoot Timing

To ensure that we got the best possible shots and avoided any crowds or harsh sunlight, we arrived at Mayfield Lavender Farm at 9am – when it opened. This meant leaving Reading at 7:30am but it was worth it! We had plenty of time to get all of our photos taken before the crowds arrived and it looked like we had the place to ourselves.

Costs Involved with Photoshoot

In addition to my usual photography fees, there are some extra costs involved if you decide to use Mayfield Lavender Farm as your backdrop. This includes petrol costs for travelling to the farm as well as purchasing a photography pass (prices start from £55) which is required for any professional photo shoot. Each guest will also be required to pay an entry fee of £5. For more details you can view their guidelines here. The farm is open between June and August and requires booking so make sure you plan ahead if you want to take advantage of this stunning location!

I absolutely loved capturing these precious memories with this beautiful family at Mayfield Lavender Farm. It was such an incredible experience and one that I won’t forget anytime soon! If you’re considering having a photoshoot here then I highly recommend it – just make sure you factor in all additional costs before booking or contact me to have a chat.
