There are lot of different kinds of light from this session because we were testing light – duh. Some of these are not at all my favorite kind of light (hot spots – oh my!) – but these are my two favorite girls in the world!!
I remember our first year to do bluebonnet pictures & special mess #2 was not even sitting up & her sister was only two. Then the next year, she was barely standing . . . I found those pictures here. Last year we didn’t do any bluebonnet pictures because it was a scary age as far as behavior goes for us AND there were no bluebonnets!! But this happened! anyway!
And, now . . . at 3 and 5 years old . . . it wasn’t so bad – they didn’t do a single thing I wanted them to, but we came out ok don’t ya think?! I’m so happy to have these. Wildflower pictures are a special tradition if you grow up in Texas. I can remember my dad hauling us out to the side of the road & taking pictures . . . the best part of below . . . was when my 5 year old said as we left, “Mommy, that was a fun surprise! You are the best mommy ever!” I’m putting that here because I almost didn’t even remember our day trip that I linked above until I saw that slideshow! The whole day came flooding back to my foggy brain. Even though I remember being annoyed they wouldn’t do what I wanted them to that day either – I cried and smiled and watch every single image fade by. Now, I love them & can’t believe I never printed any of those!! For shame. I’m on it.
Pictures are important because memories of your childhood are important. Make it a special day with your kiddo & come out & see me this week!!
It’s a beautiful drive & this would be a fabulous Mother’s Day gift;o)
I would imagine it’s tough being the little sister. And, yes . . . her big sister is sitting on her head & enjoying every second while her mom stands there & takes a picture. This is how you get the super-star parent of the year award.
I’m SOOOOOO happy we have wildflowers this year in Texas and sooooo HAPPY WE HAVE LAND TO do bluebonnet sessions on this year!!!!! yippee!!
Here’s the deal – the light is tricky & once it’s gone – well, it’s gone. So there is a small window each day we can shoot. Because of that – there will only be 2 family sessions & they are already booked. They have been reserved for 2 years in fact! no lie! There is only 1 30 minute window each day that is suitable for families & I won’t be taking my couch this year & I’m not sitting families on the ground. There are still plenty of spots for kids & babies & mommies! Keep reading . . .
We will plan to do these THIS WEEK!! Friday & Saturday (weather permitting). Here’s what I have & I expect it will be booked in the next 24 hours if not sooner – so don’t wait if you want to do this. I am not calling these mini-sessions because there is nothing mini about the way I approach them. These are full sessions & I will shoot that way. We will just have limited time.
- 6 sessions for babies (sitting up to barely walking)
- 3 sessions for kids any age (walking & following some directions but under 8)
- 2 sessions for maternity - this would be super awesome!!
- 2 sessions for mommy & me – DO IT!!
- I’d love to do 1 1st birthday session with my aqua high chair & balloons if that works out well for anyone?!??
Cost: $200 for a 30 minute session, full digital collections will be offered following sessions & will start at $350 (full digital collections generally start at $1295)
Time: I will assign times based on the age/light/etc – but you will need to be available Friday from 3:00-7:30, Saturday from 8:00am-10:30 or Saturday from 4:00-7:30. Our location is at FM 1488 & 290 on private property. This is 45 minutes from The Woodlands. A very easy straight shot down FM 1488.
How to book: email me now with your name, (email@example.com), include the ages of kids and who you would like to have in the session. This will be first come, first serve (with existing clients getting first dibs). I’ll start a waiting list once these spots are filled because there were last minute cancellations last time we did this. I will get back to everyone by Wednesday at the latest with the schedule and more details.

See you soon!!!
