Bluebonnets 2011

Sunday was a beautiful day, finally a day without crazy wind. We took the girls out for our annual bluebonnet session. For those of you who don't live in Texas, bluebonnets are the state flower of Texas. It is tradition for many Texans to trek out to bluebonnet fields and capture images of their kiddos. This year, we took the girls and Guapo. I dressed them in their matching outfits from their Grandma (thanks Carol!), which Mari LOVED! Here are some from that session:






Love this one of Guapo bouncing/bounding in the field. He had a great time!


This year was tougher than the past because of two reasons. My allergies were INSANE! I kept sneezing and hanging out in the high grasses and wearing flip flops was not the smartest idea. Also, I wore Tesla for most of the shoot and attempting to get a shot in focus was a bit difficult. I chalked it up to artistic quality for the added blur. ha ha! It was a lesson for sure, but it just means I need to plan to have her sleeping the next time, though. ;) This was the first time I picked up the camera since having Tesla. It was like saying hello to an old friend. I definitely missed it!

Do you do annual photos during the spring?

These turned out great! Where did you find a flat field of blue bonnets? I haven't come across any that aren't dangling off the side of a highway! :)
