11 Great Spots for Bluebonnet Pictures


Bluebonnets are blanketing our fair city and several readers have asked where to go for their annual family photo shoot with the state flower of Texas.

It can be tricky to find a lovely field of flowers that also has accessible parking, so we asked our friend Sarah of Sarah Siller Photography for help!  She responded with gusto, dragging her adorable children all over town this week, from Cedar Park to South Austin, tracking down gorgeous fields of flowers that also have handy nearby places to park.
Here are 11 locations where you can take bluebonnet photos this weekend!

Brushy Creek, Cedar Park (parking lot)
79 and Joe Dimagio, Round Rock (park here
200 Dell Way, Round Rock (park by Building 5)
Drainage field across from North Austin Medical Center, off Park Bend Drive (street parking)
Barton Springs, at the entrance to the greenbelt (park by the pool)
St. Edwards campus (3101-3199 block of S. Congress)
Cullen & Slaughter (in an empty lot)
Circle C Metro Park (free parking)
Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center (this photo was taken in the parking lot; to visit the Center requires admission)
Sarah’s Creek Drive & Pecan Street, Pflugerville (park on Sarah’s Creek)
St. Mark’s United Methodist Church (Braker & N. Lamar)
If you are thinking, wow I wish Sarah would take my family bluebonnet photos, you are in luck!  She is currently offering Bluebonnet Mini Sessions for $150. Contact Sarah at [email protected] to book yours!
