Best locations for family photography in the Lake District

The Lake District is not only a haven for hikers and nature lovers but also a picturesque backdrop for capturing those perfect family moments. With its stunning landscapes and natural beauty, it offers a multitude of idyllic settings for family photoshoots. Here are some of the best locations for family photographs in the Lake District to make your photos stand out:

Blea Tarn

Nestled between Little Langdale and Great Langdale, Blea Tarn offers a serene and accessible spot for family photos. The calm waters reflecting the surrounding fells create a breathtaking setting, especially in the early morning light. The area around the tarn is relatively flat and easy for little ones to navigate and with parking available in the National Trust car park it is a hassle-free location for families.

Woodlands Behind Grasmere

The magical woodlands behind Grasmere provide a lush, green backdrop that brings a whimsical quality to any photo session. The rich hues of the forest and the soft, natural light filtering through the trees add a serene glow to photographs. This spot is particularly stunning in autumn when the foliage turns into shades of gold and auburn. It's also a great place to show the kids wildlife like red squirrels.

Shores of Derwentwater

Derwentwater is one of the most photogenic lakes in the Lake District, with its wide-open views and dramatic backdrop of Skiddaw and Catbells. The shores of Derwentwater are perfect for capturing the expansive beauty of the lake, especially at sunset when the light dances across the water. This location is easily accessible and offers a variety of scenic points along the lakeshore, making it ideal for families with children of all ages.

Langdale Valley

For families looking for dramatic landscapes, the Langdale Valley offers rugged scenery dominated by impressive pikes and craggy hilltops. The valley's grandeur provides a dramatic contrast to the intimacy of a family photoshoot, adding an element of adventure to your family portraits.

Capturing Your Family Adventure

Each of these locations offers unique elements that can help tell your family's story through photos. Whether it’s the peaceful shores of a lake, the enchanting woods, or the majestic mountains, the Lake District is a photographer's paradise.
