PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: worth it? ♥ Austin Children’s Photographer

I don’t even want to tell you how far outside of Austin we had to drive to find a safe place to catch the bluebonnets in bloom.

My boys suffer from SEVERE PCS (Photographer Child Syndrome).

I bribed them with a present to give me just ONE picture.

We battled rain and fire ants and very full diapers.

My boys pretty much hate pictures (me?) now.

Was it worth it?

[ETA: For those who asked where this is, I’m sorry to say that if I had to find it again, I probably wouldn’t be able to.  It’s about an hour or so outside of Austin off of 71.  How’s that for good directions? ;-)]

    Yes! Totally worth it!!

    I’m afraid my boys will start to feel the same about me…for now they’re too little to object, but soon I think the bribery will begin :)

    Thanks for your wonderful site…I am so inspired by your work (especially the childbirth sessions!)

  36. Mee Maw Says:

    Not only am I so glad that you did it…(and yes, it was totally worth it); but you will be so glad that you did it, too! I’m sure it was no easy task – you pulled it off beautifully. Love all of the shots. The little lambs give the appearance of cooperation to upease the ‘togopher. Simply adorable! Great work that has the essence of simplicity and peace.

  37. Googhie Says:

    So worth it. So much so that I briefly consider bringing my brood to Austin the next time my hubby has to go there for work (he works for Dell) so you can photo them!

  38. Jenni Says:

    SERIOUSLY? SUCH SWEET SHOTS! Sheesh, your too good! I check your blog… probably TOO much, and I am just amazed how you find the time to take so many sweet shots of your OWN kids! Man, I can barely find time in the day to edit the sessions I do! Your so my HERO!

  39. robyn Says:

    Holy schmoly these are amazing – you have such a gorgeous family!

  40. stacey Says:

    I am so jealous of people who live in warm places where flowers bloom anytime prior to May! We don’t even have these kind of flowers in the northeast-we pretty much just have a bunch of weeds-lol! Gorgeous shots! Gorgeous color! Most importantly-gorgeous kids and I’d say well worth any hassle or bribery needed!

  41. Sandra Harris Says:

    Are you ever going to do the “mini” blue-bonnet sessions again?

  42. Jennifer Says:

    G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!! I’m quite glad you left a comment on Kristie Sierra’s blog, so I can now add you to my “favorites”. Beautiful work!

  44. Keri Says:

    Can you please bring A to our next mom’s night out? She is SO stinkin’ cute and I’m very thrilled that she has brought so much joy to you. :)

  45. Thillysings Says:

    Love these! We just found a field of bluebonnets next to a Home Depot, of all places. Your post is SO true about the fire ants & rain as we battled both yesterday. And I swore that I would never bribe my kids, but the only way to get a smile from my eldest was with the promise of a tootsie pop. Sigh. I just got my camera so it was great practice and so much fun! Here’s to many more bluebonnet filled springs in Texas!

  46. Mindy Garcia Says:

    totally!! adorable!

  47. Townley Pittman Says:

    Wow!! Yes, It was worth it!!! Wish we had bluebonnets in Alabama.

  48. Arielle Says:

    totally worth it, I did the same thing last year after Brianna’s Graham workshop. I was determined to get one good very special portrait of each of my 3 children. I brought with me a couch, lots of changes of clothes, it was so painful, the kids hated it. But I have 3 beautiful canvases on my mantel, that never fail to make me happy when I look at them. Way worth it! Your pictures are beautiful!

  49. Rachel Says:

    these are fabulous!
