Diego Bazan – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Only eight years old and this little guy is a rising star with a big voice!  Diego Bazan is a vocal student in Sara Yanez Music Studio in Edinburg, Texas. He is passionate about singing Mariachi music and Música Regional.

Before his photo shoot, we spoke to his mother and told her to choose two outfits for his session. He wore his Mariachi suit and looked like a very handsome Charro.   If there was one thing that stood out to me when working with Diego, it was his expression. I was very happy with the way his portraits turned out.

These are my favorite shots from Diego’s portrait session.

O’Hanlon, Demerath & Castillo – Law Firm – Head Shots – Edinburg, Texas

Photography and law one time collided in thought. A year or two ago I had the crazy idea of dropping photography to purse a law degree. Obviously, the photography career won but I still dream about becoming a lawyer one day and although it’s a far-off thought I still get to mix the both.

Today we photograph lawyers and I am okay with that. My relationship with the law community has been through the The Hidalgo County Bar Association, which I have had the pleasure of capturing their annual event.

This month we photographed O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, a law firm located at 220 S. Jackson Rd. in Edinburg. I really love how the photos came out for these professionals. We had a simple two light setup with a dark gray portable backdrop. We used a warm tone gel to change the background color as per the clients request. Everyone was super positive and professional and it really reflects in their portraits.

Sarah Echavarria – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Rio Grande Valley Football Club Toros Dancer, former RGV Vipers Snake Charmer, marathon runner and fitness advocate and now model? The list can go on for my multitalented friend Ms. Sarah Echavarria! A while back I took Sarah’s portraits for her Vipers tryouts and was definitely excited to work with her again.

Sarah and her brother Chris stopped by the studio to take some fun portraits. I really love the way Sarah’s photos came out! First she modeled a beautiful mochila purse, after she changed out into a fitness outfit and then her final outfit into some causal. The fact that we changed the background color made the photo shoot more dynamic.

I think the best part of the photo shoot was when she took some photos with her younger brother. Ever sine I have known Sarah I have seen the beautiful relationship she has with her sibling and it was very special to see them take photos together.  I will show them off soon. 06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5579_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5633_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5652_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5784_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5791_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5802_pp_BLOG

Jeannette Garcia – Musician Portraits – Edinburg, Texas

If you haven’t heard of Jeannette Garcia you truly need to! She is a beautiful singer and musician out of Edinburg, Texas. Today she shared that one of her favorite artist Russ liked and retweeted her acoustic cover of his song Ride Slow.

Jeanette stopped by my photo studio in Edinburg to take some fun promo-like musician portraits and I am extremely happy on how the portraits came out. We used a warm tone for the background because her image is a bit more edgy and rock-star that I wanted her to be the main subject. I had her pose with her guitar in different ways to show the love between the two.

I am super excited to share these beautiful portraits of Jeannette Garcia and even more excited to share the video that was retweeted by Russ listed below the images. My photo studio is located in heart of Edinburg, Texas at the Grindstone Coworking at 506 W. University Drive Edinburg, TX 78539. Jeanette_Head_Shots_BBS-5474_pp_BLOGJeanette_Head_Shots_BBS-5466_pp_BLOGJeanette_Head_Shots_BBS-5459_pp_BLOGJeanette_Head_Shots_BBS-5438_pp_BLOGJeanette Head Shots-5441_BLOGJeanette Head Shots-5463_BLOG

Corina and Friends – Prom Photo Session – McAllen, Texas

This Saturday we had a really fun time photographing these beautiful and classy young people before their prom!  If I could sum up the overall experience of this session with four words, they would be: laughter, style, boldness, and friendship.

This group of friends looked amazing and really rocked their personalities into their photo shoot! Not once did they hold back from trying the poses we suggested to them.  They even added their own style to them! From standing poses to impromptu cat-walking to Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love”, this group totally had fun and got creative with us!
Close to the end of the photo shoot, one of the girls sat down to rest for a bit on one of the McAllen Bcycles. We thought that looked pretty cool so we took the opportunity to capture that moment with all of them. Little did we know that Mr. Robert de Leon, Program Manager for the city’s first-ever bike share system McAllen Bcycle, was there at that moment. He really liked the idea and took a picture of us as well!  A very cool way to wrap up the photo shoot!
Thank you, Miranda, Ana, Corina, and Marcos for choosing us, Ben Briones Studios, to capture your Prom photos!  Photo Credit: Lourdes Paz
