Capturing Senior Portraits in Sunflower Fields


Senior year is a time of transformation, growth, and new beginnings. What better way to celebrate this momentous journey than by capturing your senior portraits in a beautiful, vibrant sunflower field? In this blog post, we'll explore the reasons why having your senior portraits taken in a sunflower field is a great idea, along with outfit and accessory suggestions to make your photoshoot truly stand out!

Why Choose a Kalamazoo Sunflower Field for Senior Portraits?

  1. Local Beauty: The Kalamazoo area has a few stunning sunflower fields available that provide a picturesque backdrop for senior portraits. These local fields offer unique charm and a sense of connection to the community. My favorites are Gorby's and Gull Meadow Farm.

  2. Timeless Appeal: Sunflowers have an enduring charm that transcends trends and seasons. Your senior portraits will remain timeless, just like the beauty of the sunflowers themselves.

Outfit Ideas for Senior Portraits at a Sunflower Farm:

When selecting outfits for your senior portrait session, consider these ideas:

  1. Casual: Embrace a comfortable yet stylish look with jeans and a light-colored blouse. Add a wide-brimmed hat adds a bit of charm and helps frame your face.

  2. Hometown Elegance: A white, pale blue, or pale yellow sundress exudes elegance and beauty amidst the tall, bright sunflowers.

  3. Boho Vibes: For a bohemian touch, opt for a flowing maxi dress. Earthy tones and floral patterns blend seamlessly with the local sunflower fields.

  4. Denim Delight: Denim is a timeless choice. A denim jacket over a simple sunflower-yellow dress or jumpsuit can create a fun and playful look! A pair of light colored blue jeans with a white or navy blue shirt will help you pop against the bright yellow of the sunflower.

Overall, the color scheme for a sunflower field can be very broad! I find that pale yellow, whites, pale or navy blue or a bright fire engine red look amazing. You can play with accessories such as hats and necklaces to help tie everything together! Consider bringing a jean jacket or sweater to add variety to your wardrobe for the session!

Reach out to me today to inquire about a sunflower field portrait session for your senior portraits! Remember, this opportunity is limited to just a few weeks a year, late in the summer when the sunflowers bloom!
