Brianna Garces – Miss Borderfest 2018 – Ben Briones Studios

Last night we photographed Brianna Garces, the newly elected Miss Borderfest 2018. Brianna and her family attend the same church my girlfriend and I go to. So we already knew her but we only found out she won Miss Borderfest 2018 this past weekend when they made the announcement at the festival.

Brianna reached out to me because she needed some head shots for a possible modeling job with Betsey Johnson, who I here will be visiting the valley soon. Brianna models for Missy’s Modeling Studio located in McAllen, Texas. She’s also made an appearance on my blog on the V-Lashes Launch Party blog feature.

Here are some of my favorite shots from the last nights head shot session! 03.05.18_PRINT_Brianna Garces Head Shots_BBS-2227_pp_WEB03.05.18_PRINT_Brianna Garces Head Shots_BBS-2229_pp_WEB03.05.18_PRINT_Brianna Garces Head Shots_BBS-2292_pp_WEB03.05.18_PRINT_Brianna Garces Head Shots_BBS-2293_pp_WEB03.05.18_PRINT_Brianna Garces Head Shots_BBS-2312_pp_WEB03.05.18_PRINT_Brianna Garces Head Shots_BBS-2319_pp_WEB03.05.18_PRINT_Brianna Garces Head Shots_BBS-2428_pp_WEB

Margie Villalobos – Attorney Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

Last week we had a prominent immigration attorney stop by the studio for new head shots and we had a very pleasant conversation!  Margie Villalobos is an immigration lawyer who’s been practicing for 25 plus years as a partner in Villalobos & Villalobos  in McAllen, Texas.

I enjoyed photographing Mrs. Villalobos because I found out we were both alumni of The University of Texas at Austin, where she received her law degree. We talked about the possibilities of maybe one day I becoming a lawyer. She also shared her passion about the work she does and how important it is to her. I think the bond we had made for great photos!

I love how the photos came out and these are some of my favorite shots!

Nick Moore – Attorney Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

This week we had Mr. Nick Moore, a local attorney, stop by the Studio for professional head shots. Mr. Moore brought in two sports coats, which was perfect for the backgrounds we had setup for him. A mutual friend and fellow attorney, Ignacio Mendoza, referred Nick to us. A few months back we took Ignacio’s attorney head shots as well.

Depending on what the attorney does we try our best o get the best look for him or her. We tried a variety of positions and facial expressions for Mr. Moore and these seem to be my favorite shots. Take a peek and enjoy!

Jessica Musick – Photographer Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

Head shots are important to clients as much as they are to the photographer taking them. Ms. Jessica Musick, a local professional photographer, asked if I could take some new head shots for her last week. Well, we got’em done and they came out amazing.

If you know Jessica, you know that she’s a character and that she never puts down her camera, aka Monique.

Even I have my head shots with my old beat up camera.

Client Review

Law Office of Ignacio Mendoza Jr. – Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

Yesterday I had an interesting soul enter my studio. Mr. Ignancio Mendoza Jr., a defense lawyer, out of McAllen, Texas. Mendoza is not your regular lawyer, he’s young, good looking and well educated but with that homeboy type feel.

Mendoza and I met through my friend Britny Rocha, who’s also a local lawyer and has done head shots at my photo studio. At studio during our photo session I got to know him a little better and the dude is pretty awesome if you need a lawyer give him a call. Mendoza has a new office at 10125 N. 10th St. Ste. A McAllen, Texas 78504 and can be reached at 956-287-4008.

These are some of my favorite shot from our head shot photo 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.
