Texas Bluebonnets

Posted in flowers, Kids' photography


Texas is very proud of their state flower, the Bluebonnet.  These beauties grow along highways and in parks thanks to former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson.  They grow quite easily here and people have them in their yards.  And, yes, Texans are crazy and take their pictures in the bluebonnet fields around.  Some are even crazy enough to take them along the interstates!  Not I, my friend.  I was fortunate to find an empty lot in a friends neighborhood, where they covered the entire area.  They were beautiful this year!  It was such a treat after last year when they were scarce because of the drought.  My daughter was all about posing this session, and wanted to try some interesting ones.  We had fun and got some great shots!  This is a tradition here, and I am proud to say that I have gotten the kids in the bluebonnets every year for the past 7 years!  I plan on keeping the tradition as long as I can.
