When to Visit the Lavender Fields in the Provence
Every summer the South of France bursts with colour from the iconic purple lavender fields. The season is short as come mid July the farmers start harvesting the lavender for oil. So, if you want to visit the lavender fields make sure to be here from mid June to early July.
The Best Time to Plan Your Lavender Photoshoot
I always organise my photoshoots for the golden hour light, either an hour after the sun rises or hour before it sets. So, in June and July these times are around 6AM for sunrise and 8.30PM for the sunset session. My favourite is sunrise, despite the early alarm clock, the light and colours are so soft and you avoid the crowds!
Where are the Best Locations for Lavender in the South of France
There are two fantastic locations where you can book your Provence lavender photoshoot. Either in the Luberon or Valensole.
P.S. Dogs and pets are always welcome on the photoshoots! I love animals, so it’s a good excuse for me to have a cuddle with them. Plus animals always make you feel more relaxed if you have some nerves being in front of the camera!
