Family portrait at Colby Farm
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.
