It’s no wonder that New Jersey is the epicenter of greatness. With an abundance of farmland and delicious produce that we share with the world, that we are the BEST on the east coast as far as tasty produce goes. Well.. we definitely can put the “garden” in the garden state, too.
One thing we also rock at are sunflowers. From July 4th to early October, you can generally see these beauties all over this precious land. These beautiful sunny and yellow golden babies are a sight to see and always bring a smile to one’s faces. It’s no wonder they are a beloved flower. They can typically last up to 3-4 weeks in the right conditions.
One thing I like to offer my customers are sunflower sessions every year. I am quite obsessed with flower sessions and like to incorporate a lot of them into my session offerings. I typically do flower photos all year round!
Here is a session I did recently, of a family I truly love. I see these guys a few times a year. It’s always a pleasure to photograph!!
As you can see, all you need is beautiful light, a great setting (like these lovely sunnies) and beautiful subjects and this is what you can create! I truly love whites a blues as wardrobe options for sunflowers. These color choices, the subject generally pops.
Happy Shooting my friends! Enjoy the sunflowers this year! I have enjoyed all the families that have come my way!!
