Bluebonnet photos with Jessica and her family

It was a bit chilly the Sunday afternoon we took bluebonnet photos with Jessica and her family out in Brenham, TX.  Driving from Houston to Brenham took an exceptionally long time too — multiple accidents and the Rodeo had just packed up that day.  It was non-stop traffic from about 99 until Brenham.   A tip to everyone in Houston, stay off the freeways when the Rodeo ends!  But, for the photo memories, it was definitely worth it!

Her son wasn’t having any of the photos… so I had to take a whole bunch and photoshop his best look into this photo.  (shh… don’t tell anyone!)

All-in-all we got some cute ones they were very happy with.

Wedding reception

I had the honor of assisting with a wedding reception this last month.  It was at Pecan Grove Plantation Country Club in Richmond, Texas.  Here are a small handful of the many great shots of the day.

They did Nothing Bundt Cakes for their wedding cake.  This was a great idea and all their guests enjoyed them.  Not only were they individually wrapped & delicious, but left over cakes (perfectly boxed) made their way home with guests too.  It was a brilliant idea!

Chi and her family in the Bluebonnets

Chi has been my hair stylist since about 2002-ish.  She has two very happy children and recently just got married (Congrats!!).  She has been after me for Bluebonnet photos for years now and it just happened to pan out with our schedules this time.  We ended up visiting a little field down in Richmond Texas on a Sunday and arrived pretty early in the morning before others were up.  The sun was super bright, but the weather was in the mid 70’s – perfect for taking photos!

Here is Chi and her new husband!

Here are her two little ones.  While he was playing it cool, he definitely cared a lot for his little sister!

This was us trying to get him to smile/show his teeth.  No dice!

And we can’t have photos without the grandparents!

Next to the field of bluebonnets, they had a cool bridge, so we tested our luck there too…

They were limo’d to “Naty Salon & Spa” in Pasadena, Texas where they got a bit of makeup done while they ate cheese and fruits and had some juice.  The staff there was very nice and professional.  Thanks ladies!

The Party came next at Demers Banquet Hall (one of their smaller rooms, but very large for a small party!)  The ladies got to paint sculptures and a few other things while they ate and chatted.

At the end they brought out her birthday cake.  When they poured on the hot chocolate, the outer crust melted away revealing the ice cream and brownie inside.   All the ladies were in awe!  Being a home made dish that I had only see on facebook, I was in awe too.  Good job mom and dad!!
