Blossoms, bluebells and a bit of bribery
Even though spring comes each year without fail, every time it does, I’m just as excited as the last. I love the energy, the vibrance and the retreat of the winter restlessness that comes with each blossom and blast of colour. As a family (and newborn) photographer, it also means tracking the weather and watching for the arrival of spring flowers and blossoms to get the most from the outdoor photography season.
Based in the leafy South London suburb of Dulwich, we’re within easy reach of a number of picturesque locations to provide stunning backdrops for any photography session. My family spent much of Easter weekend taking in the sunshine and exploring all that spring has to offer. Some days we stayed local and took to our favourite parks while one of the days we travelled a little further afield to the Kent countryside where we were treated to a blanket of bluebells during our country walk.
A few of my favourite spring inspired photos along with a description are below. All were taking using a Canon 5d mark iv with a Canon 70-200/f2.8 lens.
Where does the bribery come in?
Don’t expect these kids are modelling for the love of it, unless we’re talking about their love of ice cream! A few cones were consumed following the shooting of these images, but only after they found a new tree to climb.
This image was shot at 1/500 sec, f/2.8, ISO 250 at 142mm.
