Colorado Springs Sunflower Photo Session

Colorado Springs Family Photographer

It finally feels like spring has arrived here in Colorado Springs. All the snow has melted and the weather is warming up! This has me so excited for summer. Summer is my favorite season for photos and at the end of summer comes sunflower season!! Sunflower season is a great time to take family photos. I love the pop of color it adds to photos and I love the natural interaction it adds to a family photo session.

The Best Time of Year for Sunflower Photos in Colorado Springs

Sunflowers are usually in peak bloom in late August, although it is different every year depending on when and how much rainfall we get. However the best locations for sunflower photos are different every year. If you would like to book a sunflower session, just add a note when you fill out your client questionnaire and we will choose a location that has the best sunflowers.

Summer is the Best Season to Take Family Photos

I love summer in Colorado! It is a fun filled couple months with camping trips, hiking and playing in the creek or reservoir. Summer is also my favorite season to take family photos. So often families wait until fall to schedule their yearly family session. Here are four reasons to schedule a summer session instead:

  1. Summer is so colorful in Colorado. I love the rich greens and pop of color from the landscape in Summer.
  2. The summer skies typically have the most beautiful clouds that really add a dramatic interest to your photos.
  3. It is warm! This is especially important if you have any toddlers or babies in your family, they will be much happier if it is warm out. Starting in September the weather can turn cold and we can even get snow.
  4. The carefree vibe of summer creates the most relaxed photo session. Your kids will be used to playing outside and exploring nature, which is exactly what we will be doing during your photo session. In fall you’ll be more stressed about sticking to your schedule with school and other activities.
