Marissa Sandoval Rodriguez – Maternity Session – McAllen, Texas

There is nothing more exciting yet terrifying than bringing a new life into this world. I commend all women for baring us and raising us to the “productive” human we are today. Without mommies we couldn’t exist and that is why today we celebrate this soon-to-be mother, Mrs. Marissa S. Rodriguez.

This weekend I had the pleasure of capturing these sweet portraits of Marissa, with the help of her awesome sister Lorraine, whom I also photographed her engagements and her wedding. We shot at two great places. Archer park and Marissa’s office! I loved the look of both locations because they were both simple but beautiful spots and it really allowed me to highlight our model(s), Marissa and baby Rodriguez.

These are my favorite shots from this photo session. Enjoy

Carolina Solis – Portraits – McAllen, Texas

Yesterday, a friend of mine asked me if I was available that same day for a quick photo shoot and being the workaholic that I am, I agreed to take on this challenge.

I typically shoot the majority of the time at f/4 but this time I decided to go open up to f/1.8 to since we were shooting in an area that would have pretty busy backgrounds. The open f-stop worked out well because it makes the model the main attraction of the photo. Carolina is a photographer herself so working with her was pretty easy. She had all her posing down. She even would make her self laugh to get those natural smiles to come out. Honestly, I just focused on being sharp and capturing the moment.

It was definitely a fun quick photo shoot and these are some of my favorite shots from the photo session with Ms. Carolina Solis. 11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2896_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2875_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2806_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2745_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2677_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2486_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2432_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2391_pp_WEB

Nerva Charles Jr – Musician Portrait – Edinburg, Texas

There’s days when you just meet such a wonderful soul and things just click. Last week I met Nerva Charles Jr, a Christian Rapper, who’s music is fire and is about to do big things! Nerva booked us for an hour photo shoot but turned out to be a three hours long fun filled photo shoot and jam session.

These are my favorites shots from his photo shoot. He chose three awesome outfits the really popped and matched his personality. One of my favorites parts from the shoot was when he showed us some of his latest music and he went off allowing us to capture him in his form of worship. Look out for his music because he’s an extremely talented musician.

Jefte Martinez – Musician Portrait – Edinburg, Texas

Jefte Martinez is a Christian Musician out of Mcallen, Texas. Jefte stopped by on a weekend this summer to take some portraits at my newly remodeled photography studio in Edinburg, Texas and these are the results of that photo shoot.
