5. Sunflower Farms

Sunflower season in New Jersey is typically the end of August to mid September. We are so lucky to have the Sussex County Sunflower Maze right in our backyard! This spot has acres upon acres of these beautiful sunflowers to run, play and stroll through. If you want a session in these beauties, you have to act fast and be a bit flexible. Mother nature runs on her own schedule, and I follow her lead. I offer just 5-6 of these sessions and adjust them to be done right when the sunflowers are at their peak bloom! Trust me, it’s worth it to be flexible!
