Graduation is around the corner and one of the things that go along with walking across the stage is to take graduation photos to record the special milestone! My friend Nick Cruz recently setup a studio graduation photo session at my home studio located in McAllen, Texas and I love how the photos came out! Nick graduated in 2018 from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) but didn’t get a chance to take photos back then but we hooked him up. Here are some of my favorite shots from this studio graduation photo session.

This past weekend I was able to work with Ms. Vanessa once again. Vanessa and I have been friends for some time now and she has trusted me to document some of the most special moments in her life. Sunday we celebrated her achievement as a graduate from South Texas College with a bachelors degree through an awesome photoshoot.
I have photographed Vanessa’s maternity photos, her most recent birthday, her graduation portraits, and soon her family photos. Here are some of my favorite photos taken by myself and my team.

Recently, I had the honor of taking Christopher Echavarria’s graduate portraits at my photography studio in Edinburg, Texas. Chris is a McAllen High School senior graduate, a trumpet player, and a member of the four time State Champion McHi Mariachi Oro! What made Chris’s portrait session unique was how he incorporated his personality and style into his photos. High school graduation is exciting! Bringing the future near and igniting that great anticipation for further successes and growth. Congratulations, Chris! May your future always be bright!

A true #throwbackthursday post right here!
In 2011 I was still attending The University of Texas at Austin finishing up my degree but that didn’t stop me from driving down to the Rio Grande Valley to serve my clients. Amanda and I went to school together at Edinburg North High School and when she asked me to photographer her graduation portraits I did not hesitate; even though I was 500 miles away.
Back then I was shooting the original Canon 5D and using one studio light on location with a octabox. Since then I have simplified my light setup but after seeing these beautiful images I may go back. Another thing I would do back then was try to shoot all my sessions between 1pm – 3pm to have explosive natural light and studio light. It nice to take a look at your older work and see how you have matured as a photographer.
The beautiful thing about this special person is that not only did I have the honor of photographing this milestone in her life, we also shot some head shots for her and most recently I helped document her wedding with Stephanie Rios Photography.

As a professional photographer is it always such a great feeling to sign a new client but what brings me the best joy is working with a returning client. These photos that I am featuring today are of Ms. Criselda Garza, who is graduating with a nursing degree from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV).
Criselda is a returning client because I had the pleasure of photographing her beautiful daughter Krystal Molina in 2011 and I remember how much fun that photo shoot was, now the spotlight is on Mom. Ms. Garza is beautiful so it was not difficult at all to pose her and guide her during the photo shoot. I also had the detailed help of Ms. Sara Yanez, a recent graduation photo session client. Thank You Sara!
We shot these milestone portraits on the UTRGV campus where Criselda is a student. I decided to use a lot of the newer areas of the campus because of the greenery and colors. Criselda was a doll at allowing me to pose her in all these different locations. Congratulations on her degree and thank you for allowing us to document this milestone.

I am super excited to photograph and feature my first University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Graduate on my blog! Congratulations Ms. Karen Perez on your achievement!
Every time I photograph someone on this university campus it takes me back to my days as a student their. I use to walk around with my camera around my neck photographing nature and people and now I have the privilege to capture momentous milestones in graduates who too have walked the same campus as I.
The University of Texas Pan American, as it was once known, molded me as a photographer and really help me plunge into the world of photojournalism with the opportunity the Pan American Newspaper granted me. And even though it is now UTRGV, I know the leadership, professors and staff still hold quality education as its top priority.
Ms. Karen Perez, once again best wishes and thank you for trusting my brand to capture this milestone in your life.
Special thanks to Sara Yanez.
