Celebrate Summer at Our Annual Sunflower Farm Mini Sessions at Dogwood Farms in Belews Creek, North Carolina
Summer is here, and with it comes the golden opportunity to immerse ourselves in the breathtaking beauty of sunflower fields. For our clients and us, these yearly sunflower farm mini sessions at Dogwood Farms have become an eagerly anticipated tradition. Every year, we witness the joy and excitement as families, couples, and seniors come together to create cherished memories among the sunflowers.
A Perfect Match: Sunflower Farm and Mini Sessions
Our sunflower farm mini sessions have proven to be an ideal setting for families, especially those with young children. As any parent knows, little ones may not have the longest attention spans, and that’s where these short sessions shine. The sunflower fields create an enchanting backdrop, enticing young ones to explore, play, and interact with the stunning flowers, making it easy to capture genuine moments of happiness and wonder.
Not only do families revel in the fun and laughter during these sessions, but the sunflower fields also provide an alluring space for seniors and couples alike. For seniors, the vibrant colors and natural beauty offer a delightful contrast to their portraits, ensuring they stand out in the best possible way. For couples, the romantic charm of the sunflowers sets the stage for heartwarming and affectionate photos, reflecting the love they share.
Creating Timeless Memories in the Sunflower Fields
During our mini sessions, we focus on finding the best light and a backdrop with minimal distractions, allowing our clients to take center stage. We guide them through a few poses, but we also employ prompts and games to evoke genuine emotions and laughter, capturing candid moments that they will treasure for years to come.
Important Tips for a Blissful Session
As we prepare for our sunflower farm mini sessions, there are a few important things our clients should know. Firstly, the farm does charge an entry fee for each person, so it’s best to plan accordingly. And while the sunflowers are a sight to behold, it’s essential to remember that the farm is a working one, which means dirt and mud may be present. However, we assure you that the magical experience will outweigh any minor inconveniences.
Another friendly reminder: bees may be buzzing around the sunflowers, but they are more preoccupied with the blooms than our clients. So, there’s no need to worry about them disrupting the session. As for the weather, North Carolina summers can be warm and humid, so we recommend bringing water to stay hydrated before and after the session.
Dress to Shine Among the Sunflowers
To complement the vibrant yellows of the sunflowers, we suggest wearing cool tones and neutrals, which beautifully harmonize with the backdrop. Dark colors and jewel tones can also look beautiful against the bright yellows, bringing a touch of elegance and contrast to the photos. However, it’s best to avoid colors like bright red, green, and orange, as they can create color casts and unnatural skin tones.
For families, coordination is key. We encourage choosing a similar color palette without necessarily matching outfits exactly. This adds visual interest and cohesion to the portraits without being overly uniform.
Focus on Fun and Enjoyment
Above all, our sunflower farm mini sessions are about creating an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. We want our clients to embrace the moment, be present, and let the joy of the sunflower fields shine through. Our aim is to capture authentic smiles, laughter, and connections that will be treasured for generations.
The sunflower farm mini sessions await, and we can’t wait to celebrate the magic of summer with all of you during our sunflower farm mini sessions. Mark your calendars, prepare for a day filled with love and laughter, and get ready to create memories that will forever bloom in your hearts.
