Adalie’s Quince – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Having a Quinceañera is super special for a young woman and the parents. I met Adalie when her father brought her to my studio for her formal portrait session. Her photos turned out so beautiful in her portraits with her blue dress.  It was no surprise that the result of her photos from her Quinceañera would be any different.

Here are our favorite photos from documenting a special evening of symbolic traditions, dancing, and fun moments of Adalie celebrating her 15th birthday with her family and friends.

Guerrero Baptismal – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Today I got hired by the Guerrero family again to photograph their two other kids getting baptized. It’s always a special feeling when families call you back for special milestones in their lives. A few years back I photographed their eldest son getting baptized and today I documented their 14-year old daughter and 11-month old son. Here are my favorite shots from this Sunday event!

Zavala Family Portraits – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones

When planning a family photo session one thing that you need to consider is the location. Living in the Rio Grande Valley we all know it’s extremely hot and sunny so when discussing the photo shoot with my clients I always show them locations that have both indoor and outdoor areas to shoot in. Now, most of the places are going to charge you to use them so you have to prepare for that as well. I have a rule with my clients; if the location is $100 and below I will pay for it, but if it’s more than $100 I asks the client to split the cost with me. I already have a location fee built into my premium portrait packages just in case we do shoot at a place that charges you to use it.

For this particular family photo session we used the very popular Memory Lane Photo Spot located in Mission, Texas. I love this place for family photos because it has both indoor and outdoor variety and the owners are super nice! The place is a one-hundred year old home with lots of character and well decorated. The inside has a beautiful wood finish with a staircase, a piano, and very nice furniture. The outdoors is lush with beautiful landscaping and rustic settings. I have used Memory Lane Photo Spot for all kinds of photos shoots including bridal, engagements, maternity, etc. Here are my favorite outdoor shots of the Zavala Family at Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas. ZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-1_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-5_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-6_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-12_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-17_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-25_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-27_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-16_WEB

Susana Sanchez Grad Session – The University of Texas at Austin – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

Beautiful. Bold. Intelligent. Studious. Adventurous. Strong. These are all nouns to describe Ms. Susan Sanchez, a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin. I met Susy while attending UT through a mutual friend. She and I became friends and kept in touch and when it was time to celebrate the achievement of completing not only one but two undergrad degrees she contacted me to document this special moment.

It’s been a a few years since this photo shoot and Susy is now saving lives and keeping the people of Austin, Texas safe. I wish you the best friend. I am very proud of you! \m/
