FOMO – I had no idea what this word meant until I absolutely lived it last year. I am talking about the Confetti Fields and the way they filled my instagram feed. I vowed that this year I would go and get right in amongst those petals, pulling out my best frolicking moves. So when my lovely friend Katrina mentioned she had planned on doing Mini shoots there I was so excited.
If you don’t know what the Confetti Fields are, then in short they are fields of flowers grown to make confetti and for one week each year they open to the public. It is the perfect setting for family portraits and this year saw glorious sunshine too which made it even nicer.
Katrina is a very talented local photographer and I have had the pleasure of doing a few shoots with her. Photography aside, she also has a real skill for getting the most out of people. My two boys are very used to being in front of the camera which now means it is hard to get those natural candid pictures of them as every time they see a camera they strike a pose. She immediately made them feel at ease and got them talking. (I’m pretty sure she even got a smile out of Si too)
Here are a selection of our photographs from the shoot.
Dont worry if you missed out on the Confetti fields as there are still some amazing alternatives that you could visit such as
Cotswold Lavender – which is open until August 5th
Hitchin Lavender – Who also have sunflower fields.
Let me know whether you visited the fields too and what you thought!
