It's Bluebonnet Season! | Katy Moms


Parents all over Texas are driving out to the middle of no where, scoping out the best places, and even stopping on the side of the road to snap a picture of their babies, children, and even themselves in all the beautiful wild flowers that are in full bloom right now! It’s a sight to see and the entire Houston area has some beautiful spots! Last year, we tried to take pictures ourselves, and although we got a few good ones, we learned that the way to go, is get yourself a professional! And, y’all, Katy has so many dang good photographers! 


Our friend, local boy mom, and super talented photographer Sam with Samantha Schaub Photography, offers Bluebonnet Minis and Spring Sessions, and she is a true expert on anything spring time photography! Sam has scouted some of the best local Bluebonnet locations and even offered tips on what to wear! We hope all these tips help your luck in capturing that perfect moment! And if you’re not brave enough to go it alone, give Sam a call. She rocks!

Bluebonnet PSA


Please remember to be respectful while out taking pictures. No, it’s not illegal to pick them, but when bluebonnets are picked or detroyed, they will not produce seeds for the following year. Each year, it gets harder to find them. There are many locations that have chosen to no longer allow the public to enjoy because of property damage. Or, ever worse, there are locations that are mowing down all the wildflowers because it’s easier than having the public on their property. So, please walk on paths or around the flowers, and watch your step!

About our Expert


Samantha Schaub is an on-location, natural light, modern, lifestyle, and portrait photographer with a focus on timeless portraits and a meaningful experience for her clients. She enjoys capturing candid moments. Lifestyle photography is her favorite – capturing the love, the fun, the joy, and the emotions that make up a relationship. She of course hopes people love the images they see after the session, but Sam also hopes they enjoy the experience. She’d hate for a couple or family to leave their session having felt awkward or uncomfortable the entire time. Sam wants to be thought of as a friend and not some stranger you can’t wait to be done with. She gets especially excited when she has clients come back to her as their relationship and family grows!

Capturing images has been very important to Samantha for as long as she can remember. Her mom never kept baby books for her or her brother, instead she chose pictures and videos as her medium for memory keeping. Now she gets to capture precious moments in a similar fashion, both for her clients and for her own family. Sam took a black & white film developing course as an elective back in college where she learned the technical aspects of the camera along with basic composition techniques. She started out taking pictures for her friends, when they got engaged or pregnant, and then their families. She started charging for her work as she became more comfortable with the spontaneity and quickness that’s necessary for lifestyle photography – especially with kids!
