Last week while checking out our first sunflower field, I noticed that people were bringing their pets. Immediately I was thinking that I just had to get in on the sunflower session craze.
This is where Kito and Christina come in. She was already looking to get some updated photos with her beloved Kito, so why not do them in a sunflower field in Japan!? It did not take much convincing because she was immediately sold on the idea.
Arriving at the field, we already knew that it was going to be hot. Luckily we prepared with drinks for everyone. The blooms were perfect despite the heat. Kito loved running through the flowers and even found some blooms his size. It was a really exciting experience.
We captured so many great images that day. (I'm sure if you see Christina she would love to show you.) I was so happy with how well behaved Kito was. That always makes my job so much easier.
This session is something that I hope they can look back on and cherish once they leave Japan.
Want to know more about booking a Sunflower Session?
Best time to book your session?
The best time to book for the Sunflower Sessions 2021 is in late June, early July. The flowers are only bloomed for about a month so we have to take advantage of that. I usually offer weekday and weekend spots to fit every family.
Take into account the rainy season of July so there will be fewer spots available.
How should I prepare?
Some families like to try and find sunflower themed outfits for their sessions. If you plan on ordering new outfits try to do it at least 3 weeks before July 15. This way if it doesn't work you can have a little time to find last-minute options.
Always bring water for you and your family. Though the session isn't long it will be HOT.
Lastly, bring treats, a leash, harness, and poo bags for your pet.
How long will it take and is it far?
The sunflower field that I will be using is a 20-minute drive from the east gate. I will send you all the information if you already do not know where it is located.
As far as the session. I will try to keep it at 20 minutes or less. This is a really bright and hot time of year so I do not want to keep you all day.
Though booking for this particular session doesn't start until next year, there are a ton of other sessions that you can book.
