Locations for Family Photography in Guildford

What locations should you choose for your Family Photoshoot in Guildford?

Guildford is my neighbouring town so I have explored many of it's rural areas and not so rural locations that are ideal for family photoshoots.  Natural long grass fields, beautifully colourful woodland or commons, Guildford and its surrounding areas has many scenic spots.

To inspire you, here are a few examples of locations I have used for a family photoshoot in Guildford or nearby.

By the way If you fancy something a little different, Guildford cobbled High Street (when it's quiet) would create gorgeous urban yet an old and authentic backdrop for your family photos.


Book your session Mid March - April.


You know when spring is here in Guildford because all the beautiful pink of cherry blossom trees appear everywhere. I know of a gorgeous Surrey location not too far from Guildford where many blossom trees grow close to each other. It creates the most stunning background for your photography session. Book a Full Session online, call or email.

Book your session in the last two weeks of April


The scene is utterly magical with the light pouring through the trees and a carpet of purple across the woodland floor. These beautiful wildflowers are a protected species so I use the little pathways between the bluebells to photograph you and your family.  Book either a Mini Session or Full Session online, call or email.


Book your session April - September 


A myriad of green hues (my favourite colour). Sunlight through the trees, long grass and beautiful backdrops of a little village in the distance. I know just the place. It's incredibly magical there.  

Book a Full Session online between dates above, call or email.

Book your session June - September


These poppy fields pop up year after year in different locations, so come June I will begin my hunt for them.  The sight of a field of poppies is just spectacular! Images of you and your family surrounded in poppies helps create the most awesome family photos. Bringing this colour into your family photographs and onto your walls creates stunning and vibrant images. Book a Full Session online between the dates above, call or email.


Book your session In July


There are many wildflower meadow locations in Guildford and Surrey. Hidden gems that deliver the most gorgeous backdrops of blues yellows and pinks of Wild marjoram, Harebells, St John's-wort, Cowslips, Daisies and Wild Orchids. Its like being surrounded in a little piece of heaven. Book a Full Session online, call or email.

Book your session mid July - late August


A 40 minute drive from Guildford and you'll find this scene. The smell of sweet lavender and row upon row of purple fill the landscape at this jaw dropping location. There is a cafe and little shop onsite where you can buy bunches of lavender for the shoot and even head garlands of you fancy. The landowners charge professional photographers for the use of the lavender field, so your session fee will be a little more expensive! But it's well worth it! Book either a Mini Session or Full Session online, call or email.


Book your session end of October - end of November


The oranges, yellows and reds of autumn leaves look amazing. I can suggest several locations in Surrey that are full of autumnal colour at this time of year. Images of you and your family having fun in the leaves, walking and cuddling within a beautiful Autumn light. Book a Full Session or Mini Session online, call or email.

Book your session over the phone whenever it snows


I know what you're thinking...​


"How can I book a snow session in advance when we don't know when it will snow?"


Well you can't. But what you can do is pop a Post-it note on your fridge saying "Call Jo Temple Photography when it snows and book a photoshoot" 

I'm serious! Just call me and i'll book you in within the next few days. 


Book your session over the phone any time of year!


"Where is there a beach in Surrey?" I hear you ask. There isn't one but I want you to know that am able to travel to a beach on the south coast. A little more is added to the session fee for the travel time, but if you're up for it, so am I :) 

The wind in your hair and your family splashing, running and jumping over the waves, or cuddled up on the beach.


The simplicity of the background, the amazing blues/greens of the sea and yellows of the sand. Call or email me below to book this session.
