How to photograph children in spring flowers | London Spring and Bluebells family and photography portrait sessions | Little Bunny Photography



After long dark winter nature bursts back to life with explosion of colour and sound. Nothing is so beautiful as spring and for many of us it is favourite time of the year. There is no better way to enjoy the vivid colours, sound of birds and intense scent of flowers and then outdoors and it’s a fantastic opportunity to capture beautiful portraits.

Here are my tips how to take stunning pictures of your children outdoors:
1. Find spring flowers around you. You do not have to look for a field full of flowers, just a tiny patch is all what you need. The best place would be your local park or meadow, your garden or even your neighbour’s blossom tree with hanging branches.
2. Choose the time of day you photograph wisely. When looking for suitable outdoor light to take photos, keep in mind that the midday sun can be very harsh and will cast unflattering shadows. The best times of day are the early morning hours and the last hour before sunset.
3. Make it fun and spontaneous. Skip the “cheese”. Try to get some great action shots when your child is joyfully running in the grass or playing with friends. Children can only focus for a very short time and most of them simply will not be able follow complicated posing instructions. 
4. Consider shooting perspective. The best way to capture a child’s world is to get down to their level. Do not shoot from a standing position. The moment you make pictures at your children’s eye level, you will start to make pictures that better capture their experience.
5. Avoid busy backgrounds. Always pay attention to distracting elements in the background of your shots, as well as any other unwanted details. For example, wipe your child’s face after having a snack and make sure that the hands and feet are visible in whole body portraits.
6. The child’s stylingWhen photographing children in flowers, it is important that the colour of the flowers works with their clothing. Loud or patterned clothing might distract the eye and take attention away from the subject. Whatever your ultimate creative goal, keep in mind that kids feel more relaxed in casual, comfortable clothing rather than formal wear.
7. Shoot a lot! Keep on taking lots of shots and vary angles and distance throughout the shooting. There will definitely be some out of focus images with odd expressions or cheesy smiles, but I sure you will end up with at least a few gems in the end.
8. Respect the nature. Photography sessions in the bluebells are one of the most beautiful locations of the year; woodlands with a floor of bluebells gives their photography session an enchanting, timeless and magical feel. Therefore protect the bluebells, they are special and are easily damaged. When taking photos amongst them please tread carefully and keep to the pathways or empty patches. 
You can hear negative opinions about photographers photographing children and families in the middle of the bluebells. The true is that we, photographers, are respectful and perfectly able to take photos to look like children are sat among the flowers. We actually place our models on the paths and simply shoot from very low down and that way we make a path disappear in the camera. 

Here are some examples:
