Baby Cloe -Donna, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

THROWBACK TUESDAY! (Yeah, that’s a thing.)

Two years ago we photographed one of my friend’s baby.  They wanted to celebrate her arrival by capturing photos of her and together as a family. We photographed a few shots of the baby inside their home and then we took the family portraits in an empty field across the house during a beautiful sunset. Please enjoy our favorite shots.

Esmer Family Portraits – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Family photos can be nerve reckoning and sometimes stressful when it comes to the outfits you are coordinating for your family, especially if you have a big family. Today I wanted to show off this photo session because they did such a great job. I love the black, red and silver color combo they chose.

Esmer (Mom) put her smallest girls in the same dress because many times the little ones want to match their siblings or for them they do care what you put them in. I do like that she put her oldest girl in a different outfit because you can distinguish that she’s older and plus she matched with her Dad. Esmer wore a beautiful black top with a silver metallic sheer skirt to match her husband’s metallic pants.

What I love about this photo session is every which way you pose the family as a whole or the kids they would match so well. Enjoy!

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

Jessica Styles MUA – Brand Portraits – Hidalgo Texas

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of Jessica’s name and her work from local photographers and models. Jessica Styles is a professional makeup artists and powerhouse in local women’s business circles. I saw her brand rising and contacted her to  see if she would be willing to build her brand with photography of her self. Usually clients want to know who they are working with and having photos of yourself on your marketing products is important. Jessica and I scheduled a photo shoot at The Old Hidalgo Pump House and these are some of my favorite photos from the session.

Emily & PJ Engagement – Hidalgo Pumphouse – Ben Briones Studios

The Old Hidalgo Pumphouse in Hidalgo, Texas is one of my favorite spots to shoot at because it’s so diverse in landscape and it’s very affordable as well. Those very reason’s is why we chose to take Emily & Pj’s Engagement photos there. This couple got in contact with me through a good friend, Ms. Georgette Rojas, who’s been friend with them for a very very long time through their parents. Georgette and her Dad have actually done a few photo shoots with me.

We took the couple around the whole venue taking beautiful shots of them around the building and the greenery. I really loved the outfit they had on because it was “fancy” yet casual enough to blend in with the rustic-ness of the Old Hidalgo Pumphouse. Here are some of my favorite shots from this engagement photo shoot.
