When is the best month to book a Family Photoshoot with Helen Rowan in Chesterfield?

Spring is in the air

Have you been thinking of booking a photoshoot this spring?

I’m often asked what is the best month to book and the short answer is all of them (possibly with the exception on Feb unless it snows).

I can’t rave about photographing your family outdoors enough, it’s such an amazing way to get some high quality natural images of you and your family.

The very best thing about booking a Family Photoshoot is that we can do absolutely anything. We can go somewhere that is really special to you and your family, or we can have a chat about a few things that you’d like and I can make some suggestions for you.

I’ve put together a few of my favorite images from last spring for you to see.


April is such a great time of year for a photoshoot, everything starts to become green again and it’s often warm but not overly hot.

As a natural light photographer I know exactly what I’m looking for in terms of locations to create beautiful portraits.

I love April because the light is still quite soft. Later in the summer I don’t generally offer sessions in the middle of the day (10.30-4pm) because the sun is to harsh and unflattering.

I love this set of images so much. Family sessions last anything up to 2 hours, giving us time to relax, have fun and create a beautiful, varied collection of images for you.
