Best pick your own fruit farm in Norwich 2014

This morning we ventured to White House Farm in Sprowston , Norwich. We went fruit picking there a lot last year.  They now have a big cafe selling cold drinks, hot drinks oh and cake! but more on that later. My family love going, Lila got to run abut this time, and we saw lots of young children about today, it the best pick your own fruit farm in Norwich very family and child-friendly!

We checked their fruit meter online and although the strawberries were low we stocked up on raspberries to make smoothies and lollies with.  I have recently brought a nutribullet  (ITS AMAZING ) to make lots of fruit and veg smoothies. My two kiddies are loving them,  and I can hide all sorts of stuff like kale and kiwi which they are not usually keen on.

I try and support local businesses as much as possible,  that's why I am a member of Buy Local Norfolk, i also much prefer the taste of local fruit and veg. The farm sells eggs, jams, local popcorn it recently had a local farmers market which I sadly missed but they have plans to hold some more!


It's a great place to pop too and stock up on fruit and vegetables as they sell stuff already picked if you do not have time too. You can go and meet friends for a cuppa and cake which was delicious, they have changing facilities and toilets.

Today there was a choice of chocolate brownies, Victoria sponge cake, and scones which came with fresh cream and jam. My two children gulped theirs down and my nephew had some local ice-cream Ronaldo's, I had some and it was lovely. White House Farm has a great relaxed atmosphere, the children enjoyed picking the fruit and running about. As soon as the strawberries appear we will be going back again.

I was amazed by how many photos we got of all three cousins especially with my two, but with a belly full of cake and fruit they were quite happy to let me snap away!



The farm is open 6 days a week (closed Mondays) it's always good to check their website and see what their fruitmeter is like just in case there is little fruit to pick! If you go let me know what you think, and if you know of any other 'hidden gems' as I call them in Norfolk, we love getting outdoors and visiting new places!

Can I book my photography shoot outdoors?

Can I book my photography shoot outdoors?

Yes, I love my studio but once your toddler is walking, or if you have older children I would suggest a photography shoot outdoors is best! These are held on location in Norwich (various places) From June up too October the perfect time to get outside. my outdoor gallery can be viewed here.

If your child has a favourite toy or teddy they wish to bring along that's great. I feel its important to capture these childhood friends too!


I believe the outdoors is the best backdrop for family portraits, and when children are on the move. Bookings for on-location shoots get snapped up quickly especially at the weekend.

I love to capture natural smiles,  I do this by making the photo session informal and fun.  I give a little direction, but work with what the children want to do and make it more of an adventure.


Please note most family sessions on location take place early morning or late evening. This is to ensure we capture your family using the lovely soft sunlight. It also means most places are fairly quiet. I have spoken with a local farm and have secured some dates to photograph families at their farm -these spots are very limited as its an awesome location.


Often parents worry that they are investing in a photoshoot that it may be canceled. But if the weather is really poor we will reschedule. This is another reason I do not overbook outdoor family sessions. I want to ensure we can rebook quickly. You do not have to worry we will work around the British weather.

I keep family sessions simple, I do not set up themes or use props. I want to capture your child/ children as they are and bring out their personalities. These two below got very messy running about and looking for frogs - I like to keep outdoor shoots pure and fun!

How do I book an outdoor shoot with you in Norwich?  If you are looking for a photographer to put your family at ease and make the session fun and informal then pop me an email today or complete my contact form, I will then email or ring you discuss your requirements and let you know my availability.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
