Mayra Vaquera – 30th Bday Shoot – McAllen, Texas

1989 was a good year! Turning 30 is a big thing and what better way to celebrate by moment than by taking badass photos? My friend of many years, Mayra, reached out to me for this special photo shoot to celebrate her upcoming birthday. She wanted something private, fun but grand to celebrate the big 3-0! We planned out the shoot to be studio and outdoor session. We did two outfits and a crown in studio and a beautiful black dress outdoors with her black Ford Mustang.  These are my favorite photos from her 30th birthday photo session. 2019-03-20_00012019-03-20_00022019-03-20_00032019-03-20_00042019-03-20_00052019-03-20_00062019-03-20_00072019-03-20_0008

Sara Yanez B-Day Session – Wallflower RGV – McAllen, Texas

On January 15, 2019, one day before her birthday, I surprised my beautiful girlfriend with a photo shoot at the Wallflower RGV located off Trenton in McAllen, Texas. I had been following the Wallflower RGV for a long time now on Instagram and would chat with the owner here and there. I am super happy I was able to rent this place for Sara’s photo shoot because the photos came out absolutely beautiful.

We rented the spot for one hour and I took plenty of shots but the ones you see here are my favorite shots. The Wallflower RGV has a lot to work with, they have over 10 looks or backdrops you can create great photos with. I highly encourage you to check this place out before it’s gone, as I believe it’s a pop-up studio and won’t be around forever. 01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9626_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9664_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9763_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9792_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9832_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9897_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9938_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9950_web

Xiomara B-Day Session – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

We recently did a photo shoot with a local photographer for her 27th birthday. Things didn’t quite as planned but we made it work. She had a 27 gold balloons and sadly when we were posing her for the first couple of shots the #2 flew away. Heart broken about the loss of her balloon, she was a trooper and we continued the photo shoot. She chose this abandoned building in Edinburg, Texas, which worked out great for her style. Another challenge was that we lost the ambient light super super fast but I went prepared with proper lighting and fast glass. We used an LED and eVOVL 200 diffused by a translucent umbrella and these are the shots we got.

Sammy Turns 3 – San Juan, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Photographing this young lady was such a treat! Her mom told us that one day they were at church, The Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle ,  and saw a quince taking photos on the church grounds rounds and that Sammy told her mom that she too wanted take pictures in a princess dress for her birthday. Well we made her wish come true. Sara and I loved working with her because she was so sweet and excited after every shot. We have worked with some younger clients before and Sammy has been one of the best. These are some of my favorite shots from her birthday photo shoot! 10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7301_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7324_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7407_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7440_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7451_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7461_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7472_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7497_WEB

Jazmin Garza 25th Birthday Portraits – Edinburg Texas – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

This past week (October 2017) we had an array of photo shoots but Jazmin’s by far topped all of them. She brought glam, beauty and and a whole lot of props into our small photo studio but we made it work!

Jazmin is celebrating her 25th birthday and we were excited to be part of it! The one thing we pride ourselves in at our studio is to one, make the client feel beautiful and two, make any of your vision come to live and I think we succeeded at both on Jazmin’s shoot!
