Sunflowers have been one of my favorite flowers as long as I can remember. Growing up in Chester County PA I remember my mother always “ planting” them in her garden. After years I learned that she didn’t plant them, the birds did. See my mother has a love for nature, I guess you can say that nut doesn’t fall far from that tree! She always had bird feeders in the yard filled with sunflower seeds, so in turn the birds did all the work!
After my visit to the now famous sunflower field in Elverson PA I made it a point to travel from NJ two weekends over the summer to capture families and loved ones in this beautiful field. The owners are amazing. They don’t charge you to walk on their field, they just love to share the beauty of it. From time to time they will ask for donations to support the local community, you can fine more info on their facebook page: Please Wash Me Car Wash
So I started to think. Why not offer special mini sessions at this field? Now knowing that I’m based in NJ I might not get many bookings. WELL I WAS WRONG! 2018 I booked 84 sunflower sessions. That’s 84 families that came to see the field and the car wash. I was able to capture 84 happy families.
See my love for the flowers? I love capturing families celebrating their love for each other. The emotion, the cute little moments that no one sees, I try and capture.
Sunflowers have a meaning to me. The remind me of the carefree days of my youth. My mothers garden, the birds, and summer. I hope that I get to spend time with you this summer at either the PA field or NJ. New Jersey is a private event and is by appointment only.
Let me capture your family in the sunflower fields in PA and NJ this year. I promise you wont be disappointed!
