Some of my “monthly” posts of Dottie’s first year have been really long, because I had a great idea, or Dot was in a great mood, or a combination of both. For her 11 month pictures, we’re a bit on the lighter side. Lighter, and late, as a matter of fact. The great thing is, though, that Texas in March has a built-in theme for photoshoots of little kids who don’t feel like playing nice for the camera… bluebonnets!
Yeah yeah yeah, I know. Everyone does pictures in the bluebonnets every year. It’s so unoriginal. 🙂 Don’t care! Bluebonnets are one of the things about Texas that I really and truly adore, and I was so excited for Dot’s first bluebonnet shots. Big Brother jumped in on the action some, as well.
The sweet dress my girl is wearing came from an open-air market on St. Thomas. Isn’t it precious?
I know it’s illegal to pick bluebonnets… but is it illegal for a reeeeeally cute baby to do it?
This is Dot’s sneaky face :
I managed to get one good shot of both my blue-eyed babies looking straight at the camera. It’s a miracle!
Now… my original plan for the 11 month session? It was all about Dottie and Gertie, our new puppy. They play so well together, and I knew it’d be adorable. Except, well… it’s kind of impossible to get an explore-crazy toddler and a sniff-crazy puppy to play nice. I got this ONE shot of the two of them together, for all my efforts. Sigh. But hey… at least I got one!
Next month is… GASP… Dottie’s first birthday. Oh man. It’s going to be epic, just wait and see!
Come back tomorrow, for sure. We’ve got a super cute engagement session to share!
