Part of being a professional photographer in Dallas, Texas means every Spring you shoot thousands of beautiful families frolicking and having fun in the bluebonnets, right?
That’s what I thought too. I was ready to deliver the bad news to the late-comers that I was all booked up and simply would not have time to work them in. Barely enough time to eat.
But, outside of a few wonderful clients nobody came knocking. My website never even crashed beneath the digital strain of the sudden and overwhelming bandwidth overload.
And I’m convinced that it’s not for lack of quality. Hey, I’ve taken some pretty good bluebonnet pictures in my time. Just ask around.
True, the flowers haven’t been quite as brilliant this Spring. But, they’re still out there. We can’t all live in Ennis.
No, that’s not it.
My theory is that, for whatever reason, it’s just not as popular as it was a few years ago. I guess everyone is just blue-bonneted out.
If you have been following my photography, you’ve no doubt seen the bluebonnet image of my son before. It’s pretty special to me for a whole host of reasons . . . not least of which – it’s reception convinced me to go pro.
Now that a year has passed since that award-winning photograph was taken, I thought it might be fun to post some of the other images captured that Spring evening.
I LOVE taking pictures of my kids. It’s as simple as that. The bluebonnets, were, admittedly a ruse. I was just stoked to be taking my camera out of the bag.
Now that a year has passed and Ben O’Neal Photography is going strong, taking a look at these pictures reminds me how excited I used to get just spending time snapping images of my son and daughter.
I hope you will contact me today about setting up your family’s Bluebonnet Mini-Session. I can’t wait to make some more photographic magic in the Texas wildflowers this Spring.
