Sunflower Sessions 2014- NOW BOOKING!

Every summer since 2009, we’ve looked forward to July.  Old South Studios has exclusive rights to acres and acres of sunflowers.  We feel we have the prettiest outdoor studio in all the Carolinas!  This is BY FAR our biggest portrait event each year.  In 2012 and 2013, our cameras captured over 200 smiling faces in just 2 weeks!

In early May, we rolled those tractors and safely nestled thousands of sunflower seeds in the ground.  The countdown to bloom has begun and we are sooo excited!

Our expected bloom dates for the 2014 season are:

JULY 1-14, 2014

Please remember that our bloom window is short and spaces are limited.  We invite all clients into our new Ballantyne studio for a complimentary wardrobe consult to get your family camera ready!! See our video HERE explaining our unique approach to wardrobe selection and custom interior wall collection design.

Session fees are $300 and portraits begin at $99.  Email julie@oldsouthstudios.com to reserve your family (and fur babies!) session in the fields.

What does the session fee of $200 include as far as digital images or prints?

julieandrews - May 25, 2012 - 3:51 pm

Digital images are only available at certain investment levels. We are a design studio and focus on wall collections to enhance your home. Once you have selected your canvases or framed art, we “gift” digital images at a certain investment level. The $200 includes the design consult in our studio, shooting time and selection appointment (where we custom design your collection)
