Spring time in the Texas Hill Country brings on a blanket of beautiful bluebonnets and with some easy tips from a professional, you can take gorgeous photos of the ones you love nestled among our state flower. Candice Ghai of Twin Sisters Photography stopped by with some great advice on making your photo shoot a success. Necessities like a blanket that blends with the flowers, bug spray, and toys or trinkets to keep a toddlers attention are at the top of the list. She also reminded us to think of different angles that will make for more interesting photos: climbing on top of a step ladder and shooting straight down or getting down low in the flowers to show a different perspective. Candice says high noon is definitely not the time to shoot as it leads to squinting and sweating. Just after sunrise and just before sunset offer beautiful light for your photos during a time photographers refer to as “magic hour.”
