After the last post proving the difficulty of posing twin toddlers for photos, I would like to show you the results of our bluebonnet photos.
Bluebonnets are a wild flower that comes out for about 2 weeks each year in Texas. There is a great tradition of taking your family out to a field for photos.
I use the term "field" loosely. Most patches of wild flowers grow on the side of highways. Not really the best place to take young children who like to run.
Oddly, our favorite patch is in part of a cemetery. There are no graves in the area with the flowers, which makes it ok in our minds.
The most difficult things about the photos, (other than getting the kids to be in one place looking at the camera) is not getting a ton of people in the background. The fields are full of people all doing the exact same thing.
Bluebonnets also attract bees and there are other wild flowers that bloom at the same time that cause many allergic reactions. Luckily, we didn't have any of those issues this year.
Many of our photos ended up becoming action shots. This was not intentional, just the only option the kids would cooperate for.
What regional traditions/photo opportunities do you participate in?
