This multi-generational Photo Session may be one of my favorites this year! I was delighted when in March a lovely family in The Woodlands commissioned me to create a Family Portrait Session which would include Grandparents and two pets, preferably in a bluebonnet field nearby.
As most professional photographers in Houston TX, I am well aware that the window of time to capture our beautiful Texan flowers is very thin... time is of the essence because our gorgeous flowers come and go so quickly! After learning that this would be the very last family photo session before moving to Seattle, I started dreaming of romantic fields of bluebonnets, little cowboy boots, grandparents' hugs and dreamy portraits of the dogs.... I wanted this to be a memorable family outing for them!
Problem is The Woodlands bluebonnet fields are typically all occupied by other hobbyists, nature lovers and photographers often with props. The answer had to be Brenham, Texas - a beautiful town in the countryside west of Houston which is the home of vast fields of wildflowers.
Multi-generational Photo Session | THE WOODLANDS PHOTOGRAPHER
Creating this multi-generation photo session in Brenham, Texas was so much fun! The drive in itself is so pleasant, especially if you bring along your family, plan a special family outing for the kids and a delicious dinner in the old town after the photo session. (Later I will write about the adorable portraits I took of my kids while testing the light). It was a long drive but we truly enjoyed our two consecutive three-hours round trips from The Woodlands (one to scout the perfect location and one to do the actual photo session). Among the many fields I walked upon, I eventually settled for one that appeared more private and endless. The light reflecting on the vast field was so strong that we had to wait for the sun to set before I could even get my camera out of the case, but the wait was well worth it: the delicate sunset colors seemed to be painted there for us.
These family portraits turned out just beautiful. As with all my family sessions, we had so much fun... among laughter, hugs and kisses I was able to capture a beautiful gallery of images that will remain a precious memory for this family as they move on to the next chapter in their life. Thank you K. Family for letting me create these for you! You hold a special place in my heart.
Here are some of my many favorites from this memorable session....
