So I’m in Texas, right? And it’s spring, and bluebonnets are the state flower, and they’ve started to bloom. So we went out the other morning on a drive to find fields of bluebonnets for some photos. We got up nice and early (6:30 am!) to take advantage of the beautiful morning light, only to end up with major clouds and not a drop of sunlight anywhere. And there weren’t even many bluebonnets out yet in the area we went to! They were just starting to pop up…it was obvious that the fields are going to look amazing in another week or two, but for now, not a lot to see.

We managed to find at least one small good patch of them, so I plopped my son here and took a photo.

Guess who got a haircut??

Remember this adorable boy I from a couple weeks ago whose mom was thinking about cutting his hair? But then she didn’t end up doing it after all?

Well guess who we ran into at the playground the other day…with short hair!!! I think he looks super cute, and a lot older all of a sudden, too.

Looking ahead

I’m gearing up for a short trip to Dallas next weekend where I have a few mini-sessions scheduled, which I am so, so excited about! This is my first time combining travel and portrait sessions, but my good friend Alicia who lives there is helping organize the shoot, and she has been awesome with everything. I can’t wait to meet these kids.

Just one photo today…this is Lyle, looking a little sneaky as he squats on a bench.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Lyle’s Grandma flew in from Colorado this morning, and she brought a cool coloring book and markers for him. We had brunch at a restaurant at the beach…here’s Lyle (with coloring book) and his dad on Newport Ave. (the main shopping street in our beach neighborhood). And check out his cool new Crocs–he’s gotten so many comments on them and he’s only had them a week!

Hope everyone else had as relaxing a Sunday as we did today. 🙂

Another teaser

A couple “teaser” photos from another shoot I did last weekend. I photographed this adorable little girl and her parents at La Jolla Cove, which is, to put it mildly, busy on a Sunday morning. To B and her parents: Thanks for driving out all the way from East County! I’ll have more for you soon.
