Amanda Maternity – Sarita, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Today we shot some beautiful maternity photos in a town named Sarita, Texas, which is a short distance from Kingsville, Texas. The family chose to have their photos taken at the Kenedy Ranch Museum. Amanda is a returning client. We took Amanda and Marcos Wedding photos back in November of 2018 and today we photographed another special milestone in their lives.

The Kenedy Ranch Museum has a beautiful outdoor country feel and it was perfect for the ideas Amanda had planned. Here are some of our favorite photos. 2019-04-13_00012019-04-13_00022019-04-13_00032019-04-13_00042019-04-13_00052019-04-13_00062019-04-13_00072019-04-13_00082019-04-13_00092019-04-13_00102019-04-13_0011

Ernesto & Kim + 1 – Archer Park – McAllen, Texas

A few weeks back we photographed a special session. This couple was not only celebrating their graduation from nursing school but also the fact that they were expecting a child.

We took their portraits at Archer Park in Downtown Mcallen, Texas. They wanted to make the announcement the following weekend with their family. Here are some of my favorite shots from this session.05.09.18_PRINT_Ernesto Kim Grad-Baby -7523_WEB05.09.18_PRINT_Ernesto Kim Grad-Baby -7543_WEB05.09.18_PRINT_Ernesto Kim Grad-Baby -7536_WEB05.09.18_PRINT_Ernesto Kim Grad-Baby -7531_WEB05.09.18_PRINT_Ernesto Kim Grad-Baby -7584_WEB05.09.18_PRINT_Ernesto Kim Grad-Baby -7610_WEB05.09.18_PRINT_Ernesto Kim Grad-Baby -7845_WEB

Ember & Adrian + 1 – Hummingbird Estates – Donna, Texas

In 2011 – 2012 or so I photographed this couples engagement photos and wedding. Just shy of mother’s day I photographed their maternity photos as well. I really enjoy seeing the couples I work with grow together and start a family. This is one of the main reasons why I have chosen to a professional photographer.

When Ember reached out to me to take these photos she seemed set on my services so we moved on quickly to try to get a location and we chose Donna, Texas’ very own wedding venue; Hummingbird Estates A.K.A. Hummingbird Springs. I have shot there a few times and always loved how the photos come out but this time around it was very special and man did the photos come out lovely! Here are my favorite shots! 05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6160_WEB05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6189_WEB05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6279_WEB05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6202_WEB05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6223_WEB05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6207_WEB05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6353_WEB05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6372_WEB05.04.18_PRINT_Ember Adrian Maternity_BBS-6389_WEB

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

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

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

Baby Ybarra in the Making – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

#TBT

It’s always special when a couple who hired you for their wedding rehires you for the next big milestone in their life. I photographed Angie and Eduardo’s Wedding some years back and it was beautiful. Recently they choose to make their maternity announcement through photos and they asked me if I could help them out.

The couple and I planned the shoot at Archer Park in McAllen and its surrounding areas. They were very interested in my ideas and as well came baring their very own unique shot ideas too. We mixed the both and yield these gorgeous fun shots of the couple and their expecting child.

Thank you so much for trusting my team and I to document this next big milestone!
Special thanks to Sara Yanez for assisting.

Vidal, Vanessa, and baby Toby – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

This is my first maternity session of 2016 and I love how the photos came out! First of all thank you Vidal and Vanessa for allowing me to capture this milestone in your lives and secondly thank you to my love Sara Yanez for helping me produce these beautiful images.

We shot at one of my favorites places; Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas. This was our secondary location because of how the weather was behaving. We decided on just going to Memory Lane because it offered indoor and covered areas just in case it rained.

Vidal and Vanessa are friends from my church New Hope of Weslaco so it was a pleasure being able to take these portraits for them because they are my spiritual friends. Vidal and Vanessa I want to bless your marriage and your family! Enjoy these photos. VidalVanessa_Blog_BBS1VidalVanessa_Blog_BBS2VidalVanessa_Blog_BBS3VidalVanessa_Blog_BBS4VidalVanessa_Blog_BBS5VidalVanessa_Blog_BBS6
