Location ideas for your family photoshoot 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 has sprung when you see the beautiful pink of cherry blossom trees popping up everywhere. I know of a gorgeous Surrey location where many grow close to each other. It creates the most stunning background for your photography session. Book a Full Session online, call or email.

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.

There is nothing better than a poppy field full of scarlet red, set against a backdrop of the deepest blue sky. Bringing this colour into your family photographs and onto your walls creates beautiful and vibrant images. Book a Full Session online between the dates above, call or email.
