Four Tips for Amazing Bluebonnet Photos

Ah, bluebonnet season—the time of year when Texas transforms into a sea of vibrant blue blooms, creating the perfect backdrop for stunning photos. Here are four insider tips on making the most of our bluebonnet photo session:

Plan Ahead for Perfection: Bluebonnet season in Dallas typically reaches its peak in April, but the key to capturing the best shots lies in planning ahead. Reach out to me by March to secure your spot on my schedule and discuss the ideal location and time for your photoshoot.

Dress to Impress: As we prepare for your bluebonnet photoshoot, let’s consider how our clothing can complement the vibrant hues of the flowers. Avoid solid white attire, as it may reflect the blue color cast from the bluebonnets. I would also avoid lots of blue and green, otherwise you will blend in. Instead, opt for soft pastels or earth tones that harmonize with the natural beauty of the surroundings.

Bug-Free Bliss: While the bluebonnet fields may be idyllic, they can also be home to buzzing insects eager to join our photoshoot. 🙂 To ensure a comfortable experience, consider applying bug spray before our session.

Preserve the Beauty: Before we step into the bluebonnet fields, let’s remember to cherish and respect the delicate ecosystem around us. Encourage your little ones to admire the bluebonnets without picking them, preserving the patch for future families to enjoy.

With these four tips in your arsenal, you’re ready to embark on a bluebonnet photoshoot adventure with me!
