Roslyn Banda Maternity – Austin, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

During my spring break I took a trip to Austin with Sara and my sister Erica to visit our beloved sister Veronica, who is attending the University of Texas at Austin. Before going on this trip I told myself I wasn’t going to work or that I would only work one hour a week. Well that didn’t really last. I have a very awesome client in Austin who I messaged to see if she would be willing to take some maternity photos. Well She agreed and these are the beautiful photos we took of her and baby Banda.

We asked her to meet me at the Long Center Performing Arts Center because it has a beautiful view of the city and the surrounding area is beautiful. My client wore a cute baby blue lace dress for her photo shoot, which was perfect for the occasion and location. These are some of my favorite shots we were able to produce. Enjoy! 03.16.18_PRINT_Rosyln Garza Maternity_BBS-8740_WEB03.16.18_PRINT_Rosyln Garza Maternity_BBS-8749_WEB03.16.18_PRINT_Rosyln Garza Maternity_BBS-8766_WEB03.16.18_PRINT_Rosyln Garza Maternity_BBS-8796_WEB03.16.18_PRINT_Rosyln Garza Maternity_BBS-8814_WEB03.16.18_PRINT_Rosyln Garza Maternity_BBS-8882_WEB

Rene Family Session – Hummingbird Springs – Donna, Texas

We had a really fun time photographing this small but adorable family.  Our session took place at Hummingbird Springs in Donna, Texas.  Selecting the location was a big part of this session.  The family wanted to go to a place that had the mission style home in the background.  And was glad we were able to shoot at this location. Hummingbird springs has the beautiful greenery gardens on one side and their charming house on the other. Perfect for what the clients were looking for close to home here in the RGV.

Overall the session went great!  It wasn’t a hot day as usual for being around 4, that was a major bonus.   They wore super cute matching clothing that made the photos look every well put together.  We just had a little hiccup when Little baby Ruiz got a bit fuzzy but we trooped on.  I was even able to catch a big smile from baby Ruiz!

The Gonzalez’s New Arrival – New Born Portraits – McAllen, Texas

Today we photographed this little stud and it was an awesome experience. Back in 2016 I photographed this lovely couples engagement photos and wedding photos. Fast forward two years and look at this lovely family!

We were invited to their home to capture some special moments of them with their child.  I love how they dressed in up in a spiffy outfit with a cute little bowtie then quickly got him into his jitsu gi, like his daddy. Here are some of my favorite shots from this photo session.

Special thanks to Sara Yanez. 2018-02-03_High Res_AJ New Born Session_BBS-8087_WEB2018-02-03_High Res_AJ New Born Session_BBS-8120_WEB2018-02-03_High Res_AJ New Born Session_BBS-8183_WEB2018-02-03_High Res_AJ New Born Session_BBS-8216_WEB2018-02-03_High Res_AJ New Born Session_BBS-8273_WEB2018-02-03_High Res_AJ New Born Session_BBS-8291_WEB

Elizabeth Solís Maternity – San Antonio, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Love the way these photos turned out! Special thanks to Elizabeth for trusting me to capture this milestone in her life and another special thanks to my cousin Manny who helped me with the lighting to capture all these great photos!

Elizabeth has hired us to shoot her engagements, which we also shot at the Missions in San Antonio, Texas and her wedding which took place in Mission, Texas. I love that she’s always open to my creative ideas and that always reflects the photos we produce for her.

My client chose San Antonio Botanical Garden because wanted a mix of greens and desert like scenes for her maternity photos. I think it was the perfect location because it offered both and we had a lot to work with. It took us about 2-hours to walk through most of the gardens and grab some nice photos. The ones you see below are some of my favorite shots from this photo session. Elizabeth Maternity_HighRes_BBS-1981_WEBElizabeth Maternity_HighRes_BBS-2020_WEBElizabeth Maternity_HighRes_BBS-2028_WEBElizabeth Maternity_HighRes_BBS-2037_WEBElizabeth Maternity_HighRes_BBS-2044_WEBElizabeth Maternity_HighRes_BBS-2093_WEBElizabeth Maternity_HighRes_BBS-2126_WEBElizabeth Maternity_HighRes_BBS-2167_WEB

Glory Iris Baptismal Family Photos | Estero Llano Grande State Park | Weslaco, Texas

Last Sunday I shot some early morning beautiful family photos of the Barnes Family but the star of the photo shoot was Miss Glory Iris Barnes. Later that Sunday morning she was going to get baptized and the family wanted to celebrate with pictures before the ceremony.

We did this photo shoot at Estero Llano Grande State Park, a gorgeous state park, located in Weslaco, Texas. The Barnes wanted their baby girl photographed with scenic backdrop and this park in my opinion was the perfect place for the portrait session. A few months back Michael and Crischelle actually got married at Estero Llano Grande State Park.

We beat the sun and heat, which made the photo shoot great! Excited to share these beautiful photos with you! Enjoy! 06.25.17_PRINT_Glori Baptislam Family Photos_BBS-7867_BLOG06.25.17_PRINT_Glori Baptislam Family Photos_BBS-7884_BLOG06.25.17_PRINT_Glori Baptislam Family Photos_BBS-7876_BLOG06.25.17_PRINT_Glori Baptislam Family Photos_BBS-7823_BLOG06.25.17_PRINT_Glori Baptislam Family Photos_BBS-7890_BLOG06.25.17_PRINT_Glori Baptislam Family Photos_BBS-7887_BLOG

Hatch Family Session | Hidalgo Pump House | Ben Briones Studios 

I’m sad to start this story by saying they were missing one. The Hatch Family is actually a team of five but one of their son’s was not feeling to well and didn’t participate in this shoot. I promised them I would retake their session if they were ever back in the valley. They had been visiting family during the Christmas holidays and took advantage of the time to take family photos. Very grateful they chose us! Thank you!

We photographed them at the Hidalgo Pump House. Surprisingly their outfits matched the aesthetics of the location which was a major plus for all of us! The kids were little angles as well, always ready to pose. Mom and dad too were fun and always willing to take my instruction rather it be a standard shot or something creative!

I’m sad their other son didn’t join in but as someone who once was a teenage boy I can sympathize with him. As I mentioned I wouldn’t mind redoing it free of charge. Every family deserves a quality family portrait and I will champion that for the Hatch’s.

Family Photo Shoot – Austin, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

#TBT

In 2010 a friend of mine asked me to photograph their family. These beautiful photos were shot at the Zilker Botanical Gardens in Austin, Texas. This family took me in as their own and I considered them my family away from home. The gentlemen you see in the shot actually help build the “Outhouse Photo Booth“.  I grew close to this family and I owe them a lot. I wish them lots of success and love!
