One of my favorite things in this entire world to do is visit Sunflower fields, apple orchards, pumpkin patches, anything along those lines. Here in central Kentucky we have several orchards within a 15 minute car ride, and I was so excited to go see the GORGEOUS Sunflowers this year! Not only is it fun to just go and see, but it is an excellent opportunity to snap some gorgeous photos. I noticed a lot of photographers snapping professional shots of families and couples, but my photos were just snapped with a regular iPhone. Nothing glamorous or time consuming, and they turned out so well. I thought I would give you some ideas on a possible outfit and different poses to give you a little inspiration if you have the chance to visit a Sunflower field.
One of my favorite props for photos has to be a hat. A signature pose I often do is to turn my back to the camera and hold the hat with my hands. It automatically elevates a basic snapshot into something Instagram worthy.
Pick a gorgeous bloom and use that sucker as a prop. This particular Sunflower field lets you pick any Sunflower in the field for $2/bloom. LOVE.
~Be like a Sunflower....even in the dark stand tall and find the sunlight.
As for my outfit, I immediately knew I wanted something off the shoulder (my signature Summer look in these hot, humid days), and I knew I preferred a print that would pair well with the Sunflower background. Buffalo check is always a good choice, and the mod white bracelet and white gladiator sandals were last minute additions that completed the look. I love big, statement earrings with off the shoulder dresses, and the black trimmed straw hat just seemed to finish the look to perfection. I think a bright red dress or a white summer dress would also look perfect in a Sunflower field!
Dress: Poshmark (boutique, mine is no longer on there but there are TONS similar)

Did you spot the yellow butterfly?

So basically, throw on a pretty dress and smile your biggest smile! You can't go wrong in a field of beautiful Sunflowers! They have to be the PERFECT backdrop for gorgeous photos. If you take any pictures in a sunflower field make sure to tag me in your photos and let me see!
