Spring at the Botanical Gardens in Sheffield is a truly beautiful time. The season and time of year you choose to book your family photoshoot has a great impact on your photos. Spring and Summer are two of the busiest seasons for a photographer for obvious reasons in the UK.
Spring brings us the first signs of lighter days after a long, cold, and dark winter.
Spring in the UK, however, can often feel like “what’s on the menu today, weather?”
We may have glorious sunshine and be out in shorts or it might be snowing or it might be torrential downpour. Spring is always a bit of a gamble, but if we can time it right, truly magical and stunning.
When booking an outdoor family photoshoot in Spring, expect that we may have to reschedule or postpone due to the weather. The wait will be worth it, though.
Spring offers us gorgeous florals, low horizon sun (making beautiful golden hour photos on sunny days), and that feeling of lightness and new beginnings.
Camellia’s tend to bloom earlier in Spring, around March and April whereas Rhododendron’s tend to pop up later in Spring around April and May. Sheffield Botanical Gardens makes a beautiful backdrop for photoshoots in Spring, but I have more outdoor location ideas here for you, too.
For these Spring mini sessions at the Sheffield Botanical Gardens we had beautiful sunshine and warmth. I often run mini sessions several times throughout the year. Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter or follow on Instagram to find out when the next one is.
