I've been meaning to do a poppy field photo session for months now and back in June on my way to a weekend away I investigated an area just outside of the village of Boxley in Kent which is a known hotspot for poppies in season, and it was glorious! A real carpet of red, so I knew I had to come back here. I got in touch with Katie and wanted to shoot sometime around sunset to get a mix of daylight and golden hour photos. It was only a week later and amazingly most of the poppies had died down. Despite this we still had a great time (and we did find a few poppies still lurking) and it was a chance to play with new lighting techniques too! I love the dramatic photos of Katie as the sun was going down.
