This Spring in Texas, it's really hard to believe it's March again, first off because we just had a a huge snow that has left every living thing in our grounds brown or bare. It's hard to envision bluebonnets springing from the dirt right now. Do bluebonnets come after the snow? I guess we will wait and see.
This March also feels signifiant for another reason. We are creeping up on the one year anniversary of the first shutdown we had in San Antonio, Tx. It's hard to fathom that we have all been living during a pandemic for a year now, and simultaneously it's had to remember life before it changes so drastically. I fell one thousands times more the adult then I was in March of 2020, is it just me?
Over the course of this year, I went through the process fo first cancelling all my sessions, then trying a few front porch session when they began trending. It was tricky at first, and still can be with little kids...but I've also learned that I can do session while keeping my distance. I've greatly improved at giving you prompts for posing and fixing little details versus me hopping into your personal bubble and fixing your hairs or necklace for you.
So yes, Virginia, you really CAN do a photo session staying 6ft a part. What a weird fact I never imagined I'd need to know prior to 2020.
I have not spotted the first sign of bluebonnets yet. I promise I will let you know when I do. If you send me your email address, I will happily keep you on my list of updates. You can also always follow me on my Facebook or Instagram for updates.
Wether the bluebonnets come or not, I am really looking forward to some Spring and wildflower mini sessions. Some people take this event and make it an annual family photo updates, a just for fun session, an Easter session, or fit it to whatever else occasion is coming up for you this Spring, Spring can feel like a rainbow after a storm and man has this year been a storm...one storm after another in fact.
San Antonio Botanical Gardens- So much variety, ranging from ponds to fields of wildflowers, lush greenery, succulent gardens and waterfalls.
Guadalupe State Park - Splash in the river and feel the kiss of Spring sun on your cheeks in the gorgeous hillside location
A random field near you - wildflowers can pop up in the most unexpected places, and I've come to find a few favorite haunts that I check out every year.
You home - many of you loved the front porch sessions from last year, and I think it's an idea worthy of repeating or even making a tradition! Show how you have or haven't changed during this momentous year. Let me join you as your plan your garden, or go for a walk outside. These little at home sessions are cozy and intimate. More of a documentary portraiture style and they are precious photos to hold on to exactly what these days are like for you at this point in time.
I have a variety of dates open for March-early May. The timeline is a little different for the bluebonnets and wildflowers this year, so I am flexible while we wait for them to appear.
Worthy of noting: best times of day are early morning between 8:00-9:00, or evenings around 5-7:00.
Most of my available session dates are for a Friday evening, Saturday morning or afternoon, or Sunday evening.
My mini session details can always be viewed here. I can provide more details in an email or free phone consultation to you. This session can really be tailored to whatever your dream for. a photo session have been lately, at an affordable and flexible rate. This is by far my most popular option. But as a bonus, I will be including 10 digital images in the price, and any additional digital images from your session can be purchased for $10 ea.
I am always excited to hear your ideas, and bring your vision to life. I am so ready to dive into Spring of 2021 and create the much needed happy magic that we all need in our lives.
