*Note: Here in Georgia we cannot grow in rows and rows like in France due to our high humidity and large yearly rainfall.
*For Professional Photographers - where can you, in one place, get so many photo opts to please your clients? Lavender is amazing for photos.
We also have 2 Gazebos, Arbors, 50 varieties of Flowers, 900+ Dahlias Gardens (May - September), small Barn, Wooded area in back of property, and even 4,000 + Lavender plants (The big Intermedia Lavender full bloom in June (exact date depends on weather), while other few varieties bloom from April - September). Each Lavender variety and flower has their own time to bloom. All professional photographers that schedule time at the farm and have clients here must have liability insurance and by May 1st must email their certification of liability insurance.
Fee for Open Shop Hours are just $25 an hour plus 5.00 per adult during June through the end of August and photographers just pay this upon arriving to the farm.
*Please be aware that Open Shop Hours will have visitors in the gardens. We work hard everyday and large expense goes into maintaining our farm in as pristine condition as possible.

For After Shop Hour Photography - photographers must have liability insurance and present a copy at time of reserving. An invoice will be sent once you request your time to reserve your booking with a 50% Deposit. Balance is due upon arrival with CC or cash. All fees are non-refundable. We cannot guarantee rainy days, but we try our best to reschedule as long as another photographer does not have reschedule time or is willing to share farm grounds with you. We have 5 acres so its easy to space people out. Lavender is planted in the front, side, and back of property.
Contact us to schedule your time for After Shop Hours reservations, which are private for you - email us! We are always happy to help answer any questions you may have.
*We will send you an invoice for deposit (50% of total fee) to reserve your time.
*Note: Photographers for After Closed Shop Hours are not allowed to share time with another photographer due to amount of people at once at the farm after closed hours. We share our farm with others due to making lasting memories in photos. But this is also our private home residence as well.
*Very Important - Our insurance providers state that all photographers coming to the farm after shop hours must have liability insurance and are responsible for their clients. ROL is not responsible for any injuries or loss. Proof of photographer liability certificate is required at time of booking.
*We highly recommend that photographers visit the farm before you place your deposit, so you are aware of the farm layout and lighting.
*We cannot guarantee full bloom during your scheduled time of shoot, since Mother Nature is involved in the blooming of all our plants. Please check our Facebook page for weekly updated photos of our farm. Due to our very busy schedule in summer at the farm we do not send current photos directly to any photographer.
Sharing photos with us or on social media allows us to share - so be sure to add your studio name and we will help to promote.
