So, you have booked your bluebell photo shoot and are wondering what to wear.
The following post will explain what I think works best. Of course, this is just my opinion. Remember, it is your bluebell photo shoot and you must be comfortable with what you choose. This is just meant to be a guide to help you. Ultimately guiding to ensure you’re looking your most awesome!

Bluebell Photo Shoots are Colourful.

Strong greens and purples will provide the back drop to your photo shoot.
However, don’t try to compete with these. Or match.

Importantly, sticking to neutral tones and soft hues is a good basis to start with.

Therefore pick up to three colours which complement your surroundings and choose your outfits around them. To clarify, I find greys, navy, cream, lilac and blue all work nicely.

What Not to Wear for Your Bluebell Photo Shoot.


I would urge you to keep away from strong and loud patterns. Likewise, logo’s and bright colours.  In this instance simple clothing photographs best. However, I do like a bit of texture. A little frill, chunky jumper or scarf and denim jackets all work well.

You may have a little one that likes a pretty dress or one who hangs out in scruffy jeans and a t shirt, all this is fine. Just remember your colour palettes and all will be good.

Bluebell Photo Shoots Can be Dark.


Remember also, that the woods can be quite dark and cool at this time of year.  To sum up,  make sure everyone has an extra layer to bung on. No one wants to be photographed if they are cold and miserable.
As always, if there is anything personal that you would like to bring along to your shoot please feel free to do so. This may include a favourite teddy, book or maybe even wellies…all are welcome.

Enjoy the Bluebells.


Of course, the bluebells can be enjoyed by all even if you don’t have a photo session booked. Hertfordshire has numerous choices for visiting the bluebells. An enchanting location is Heartwood Forest, you can visit their website here.

( They run activities for kids throughout the year too.)
