My son and his girlfriend are moving to live, and work in Dubai in a matter of days. His apartment is rented out, and they are busy packing everything away to put into storage here or to take with them.
My son rarely lets me photograph him and I was sad that our 2012 family photobook, will be severely lacking in pictures of him, so somehow I persuaded him to agree to a shoot at the lavender fields, near Hitchin.
To say when he arrived at the fields he wasn't keen, is an under statement. But by the end of our session, he could see what all the fuss was about, and he happily cut away at some lavender for me to display at home.
You can cut as much lavender as you like in the field, for just £4 !! Plus they have a wonderful cafe, with scrumptious cakes. That kept him happy as well.
I even persuaded them to take some pictures of me for the photo book and as always I was able to get some beautiful ones of my daughter , Tasmin. She is such a pro.
It wasn’t the most perfect weather for the shoot as it was really sunny, so I just made the best of the opportunity and grabbed every bit of cloud cover I could.
It made this Mummy very happy, to have some great photographs for her 2012 Family Photobook.
The Hitchin lavender fields make the most amazing backdrop for family photographs, if you would like me to capture, just such a memory for you, then just contact me and we can sort something out.
I have a lot more shoots to share with you from this fantastic location. Just be patient, please. I have a humongous pile of editing to do !
