August is here! That means sunflowers in Colorado. If you’re a high school senior and you love the look of a big, warm sunflower field, then you need to consider booking your senior session for August. And, it’s a great look for families too!
We had been shooting around Boulder and Erie for a couple of hours. We figured it was worth checking out some open spaces around town for a sunset shot to finish up the session. I’m a big fan of shooting the late evening portrait with big skies, with dark and dramatic lighting…It’s kinda my thing.
We just happened to stumble upon this sunflower field that overlooks Old Town Erie. Okay, the shots in these photos weren’t exactly taken in a sunflower field, but more of a field with some sunflowers. To be honest, it was more like a few small flower patches in a giant field. We definitely made the best of what we had and got a lot of great shots in a short amount of time.
I don’t know that I have actually ever seen a giant sunflower field in Colorado, like they have in Kansas and in the Dakotas, but with some careful posing and lighting, we can make you look pretty darn good standing knee deep in sunflowers.
