I don’t know why, but I love being a Texan. I’m so not a typical one. I live in the suburbs of a big city, I don’t have an accent, I don’t ride horses or raise any sort of farm animal (unless my dog counts).
But I have serious State Pride.
One of the landmarks of a Texas spring is the arrival of the bluebonnets. It’s basically a right of passage for every Texan kid to be stuck in the middle of a dirty patch of flowers and forced to smile by mom, dad, or for me it was my grandpa. So, welcome to Texas, kids!!
Bluebonnets are the Texas state flower. Legend says they’re illegal to pick, but there’s been some rumors that it’s not true. Either way, they last like 3 weeks all year, so save them for the rest of us okay?! (I’m talking to you, people I saw with a bouquet in your hands…) They’re pretty much just a wildflower, and they bloom typically on the sides of highways. You can find amazing fields of them farther into the Hill Country, but there’s some good patches in Houston too.
Last year, the bluebonnets were my first “real” photoshoot and it’s what inspired me to officially launch Little Egg Photography. So, this year the bluebonnet minis felt like a real milestone to me. Thanks to everyone who signed up and participated! Here’s a few of my favorites!
If you missed it this time, mark your calendars for March 2017- it’ll be here before you know it.
Have you ever wondered if your outfit choices really make a difference in the end result of your family photo session?
Well, not to put any added pressure, buuuut they totally do! Here are a few tips for you to remember when coordinating your family’s outfit.
1. Don’t be afraid to not be “matchey matchey”. If the colors are all in the same general color family, they will look great. This family is in all different colors but the session took place in the summer (see number 3 for more on that) and even thought it’s a lot going on, it works for them since they are all bright and springy colors! If you want to perfect this look, make sure someone is toned down a bit, like the mom in this family.
2. Avoid too many patterns on too many people. A good rule of thumb is to throw pattern on only one or two people in the group. Make Dad stand out a bit more by putting him in a plaid or checkered shirt while Mom or kids bring in the splash of color.
3. Remember your season and surroundings. If you have a gorgeous location picked out (IE spring flowers or fall trees), don’t wear anything too bright to distract from it. Color is still okay but keep it muted! This family’s session took place at the height of fall. While they still have a color theme going on, it’s a nice dark purple, which is muted and seasonally appropriate.
4. Rules are meant to be broken! These are great guidelines but don’t be afraid to mix it up if you think it looks good! They’re your pictures and you should feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. These kids are breaking rule number 2 but they look amazing!
Good luck and happy shopping!
