The bluebonnets have bloomed and it’s time to capture this Texas tradition! Here are a few tips to prepare for your session:

Watch your step! We will be in a field of tall grass – which inevitably has creatures. Ants especially like the bluebonnet fields. Also watch for the bluebonnets (they will be everywhere!). We’ll try to follow the tire tracks, so we don’t trample the beautiful fields of blue.

Arrive on time. The mini sessions are 20 minutes. I’m scheduled back-to-back so it’s important we get started right on time. Please try to arrive at least 10 minutes early to make sure you are ready to go.

Encourage the kids to use the restroom before you arrive. We’ll be in a field… in the country.

Dress comfortably. Again, we will be in a field of tall grass, which can be itchy. Pants and closed toed shoes are recommended but wear whatever you are most comfortable in.

Let’s have fun! While I will give some instruction on where to sit/stand, I don’t like to force a smile. Don’t stress if your kiddos aren’t looking at the camera. I’ll still be able to get plenty of photos. Kids seem to do best when we aren’t stressed about getting a perfect pose.
