Hi, I’m a Surrey Family and Child photographer. This blog provides an ultimate guide on some of the best places to see Bluebells in Surrey and when.

Hardly surprising that a lot of my family photography clients in Surrey are asking about Bluebell sessions at the moment with Spring on our doorstep!

If you would like to find out more about my Spring family photoshoots, why not book a free no obligation telephone consultation. I’d be delighted to find out more about your family and capture so natural family images for you!

Best time to see Bluebells in Surrey

Bluebells grow, although not exclusively, in ancient woodlands under the shade of the tall trees. They grow very closely together and flower mid April time before the main canopy of the woodland gets to thick and completely stops the light coming through. When they flower does depend on the weather, so be ready to move quickly if they flower early.

Bluebells are delicate flowers and are protected in England. If you dig bulbs up you can get a hefty fine of £5,000!

When out enjoying the bluebells, please make sure that you stick to the pathways and however tempting it is… don’t put your little ones in the middle of a beautiful untouched patch to snap a quick photo. Instead, think about different angles and perspectives to achieve the same effect of them surrounded in Bluebells. Get down low or take a shot from above.

I’m very careful during my bluebell shoots,making sure I get beautiful imagery  and leave the bluebells intact for others to enjoy.
