Colby Farm's stunning sunflower fields are a picture-perfect backdrop for your portraits! Located in Newbury, Massachusetts, Colby Farm offers two-acres of sunflowers that seem to extend as far as the eye can see. Their hillside sunflower fields reach their peak bloom for about 10-14 days, in late August and early September. The timing of the blooms differs from year to year, depending upon how much it rains. I get so excited as the summer progresses because I know that it's almost time for my annual sunflower portrait sessions.

These photoshoots book in advance and start selling out in mid-summer, be sure to secure your 2022 session spot! Read on to learn more.

What could be more beautiful (and fun!) than being surrounded by a field of magnificent sunflowers? For some people like me, it is like a little slice of heaven on earth! If you'd like to see more examples from my portrait sessions, please visit my sunflower photo session gallery.

Sunflowers are usually in peak bloom for about 10-14 days. Rain levels and extreme heat will effect the bloom time duration. Please note, if it rains on your scheduled session day or farms close the sunflower fields for the season before your session, we will reschedule your photoshoot for another date, at a new mutually agreed upon outdoor location (ex. a park). If you need to reschedule, as a curiosity, please notify me via email 24 hr. prior to your session time. We will reschedule the session for a date, time and new outdoor location that works for both of us. Sessions must be rescheduled within 6 months. There will be a $50 fee for any additional rescheduling there after.

 

Sunflowers are always covered in bees and bugs. If you or your children have bee allergies and/or are very fearful of bees this session will not be a good fit for your family. I'd be happy to talk with you about alternative photo session location options.
