Isreal Cavazos – Performer Portraits – McAllen, Texas

A while back we took these amazing artist portraits of my best friend Israel Cavazos at my home studio. Sara and I rented a Fujifilm XT-3 with a 18-55 kit lens for a week and we decided to test it out for this photo shoot!

My friend has always been into performing and entertaining so he wanted to take some photos with his new outfits and props! These are our favorite shots from this shoot! 02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-0155_WEB02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-0219_WEB02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-0369_WEB02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-0458_WEB02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-0531_WEB02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-0575_WEB02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-0620_WEB02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-0962_WEB02.16.19_HighRes_Israel Cavazos_FujiFilmXT3_BBS-1037_WEB

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

Carolina Solis – Portraits – McAllen, Texas

Yesterday, a friend of mine asked me if I was available that same day for a quick photo shoot and being the workaholic that I am, I agreed to take on this challenge.

I typically shoot the majority of the time at f/4 but this time I decided to go open up to f/1.8 to since we were shooting in an area that would have pretty busy backgrounds. The open f-stop worked out well because it makes the model the main attraction of the photo. Carolina is a photographer herself so working with her was pretty easy. She had all her posing down. She even would make her self laugh to get those natural smiles to come out. Honestly, I just focused on being sharp and capturing the moment.

It was definitely a fun quick photo shoot and these are some of my favorite shots from the photo session with Ms. Carolina Solis. 11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2896_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2875_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2806_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2745_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2677_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2486_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2432_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2391_pp_WEB

Diego Bazan – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Only eight years old and this little guy is a rising star with a big voice!  Diego Bazan is a vocal student in Sara Yanez Music Studio in Edinburg, Texas. He is passionate about singing Mariachi music and Música Regional.

Before his photo shoot, we spoke to his mother and told her to choose two outfits for his session. He wore his Mariachi suit and looked like a very handsome Charro.   If there was one thing that stood out to me when working with Diego, it was his expression. I was very happy with the way his portraits turned out.

These are my favorite shots from Diego’s portrait session.

Jeannette Garcia – Musician Portraits – Edinburg, Texas

If you haven’t heard of Jeannette Garcia you truly need to! She is a beautiful singer and musician out of Edinburg, Texas. Today she shared that one of her favorite artist Russ liked and retweeted her acoustic cover of his song Ride Slow.

Jeanette stopped by my photo studio in Edinburg to take some fun promo-like musician portraits and I am extremely happy on how the portraits came out. We used a warm tone for the background because her image is a bit more edgy and rock-star that I wanted her to be the main subject. I had her pose with her guitar in different ways to show the love between the two.

I am super excited to share these beautiful portraits of Jeannette Garcia and even more excited to share the video that was retweeted by Russ listed below the images. My photo studio is located in heart of Edinburg, Texas at the Grindstone Coworking at 506 W. University Drive Edinburg, TX 78539. Jeanette_Head_Shots_BBS-5474_pp_BLOGJeanette_Head_Shots_BBS-5466_pp_BLOGJeanette_Head_Shots_BBS-5459_pp_BLOGJeanette_Head_Shots_BBS-5438_pp_BLOGJeanette Head Shots-5441_BLOGJeanette Head Shots-5463_BLOG
