Bluebonnets are the state flower here in Texas and they are beautiful when they bloom in the spring. Due to all the rain we've had this year they bloomed early, making the photographers scramble to open some mini sessions. I was undecided if we were going to do them this year with a favorite photographer and thought we would just go out to a field with our DSLR - well that didn't happen. One of the photographers that I've used in the past was having a mini session and was going to be donating the proceeds to her summer mission trip. The field she chose to take pictures at was about 5 minutes away, and it was on a Friday that we didn't have any planned...so it was a win/win/win for me!
