We have been photographing Emily’s family since her biggest was just a tiny little thing. Each session we try to come up with new ideas that feel fun and fresh, without veering into the land of props and cheesy themes. (My portrait studio days are long behind me, lol.) This year, Emily asked if we had ever photographed at a sunflower field, and believe it or not, the answer was no. We had never been to a sunflower field.
New locations always get us extra excited. They offer new challenges and new opportunities for play. We contacted Bergsbaken Farms in Cecil and they gave us details on what area would be at peak bloom and how to obtain a permit, and off we went! The day of the session it was warm and lovely. Due to the chaos of pandemic and the fact that Emily is also Juniper’s babysitter, we had a spare two year old running around in the field behind us. This added an extra layer of insanity, but also resulted in some of the most true-to-life smiles and lots of laughter.
Thanks for trying something new with us, Emily and Graham! And happy first birthday to Baby Isaac!
