As far as downtown Houston locations go, engagement sessions at Sam Houston Park is one of my favorites to shoot at. You can get the outdoors look with the Houston skyline backdrop, and then a quick walk you can have more modern look like the white marble Shell Gas building.
A Texas bluebonnet engagement session with more wildflowers and large oak trees? Yes please! I was pretty thrilled when Brittany suggested doing a session in the flowers but of course, timing is the most important thing with the 2 week flowering window. After having a weird non-winter and warm February in totally unpredictable Texas style, this day in March was freezing. It was the one day that was windy and cold the whole month but thankfully the quilt came in good use to keep them warm. The light looked amazing and the bluebonnets were really blooming in Brenham.
This Hermann Park engagement was a new adventure featuring Kate, Cameron, and their 3 adorable dogs. I have had shoots with dogs before, but never 2 rottweilers and a pug! I knew there would be some adventure wandering through the crowded park with 3 dogs in tow. Thanks to Cameron's parents for their last minute trip to help wrangle the herd! This was an unseasonably warm Saturday in mid-February but with Texas you never know what you might get in the morning, then could snow by the afternoon. We still wanted to do the cute blanket shot at the end though it might involve sweating.
