Yesterday Sara Yanez strutted into our photo studio we have at Grindstone Coworking and demanded a portrait because she was wearing a new black dress she recently bought! She was lucky I had my camera ready to go because I had just finished documenting some events at Games of Texas in the morning. Okay maybe even if I didn’t have my camera ready I think I still would of prepared the gear. I mean just look at this portrait… isn’t she just gorgeous? When Sara and I first met I would always take portraits of her and I think its time I start that backup again!
There is something beautiful about photographing your significant other. There are so many photographers who actually never show their girlfriend or wife off and that’s a little strange to me. I try my best to show Sara off when the opportunity arises. It also helps that she is drop-dead gorgeous and has amazing style. Men I say you bring your girl to our studio and have Sara and I conduct a beauty portrait session for y’all.

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.

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.

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.
