Fall Family Events 2017 {San Antonio Portrait Photographer}

We are excited to share with you our newest FALL LINEUP!
We have never had such an amazing SALE as we are having during September this year.

Book Your FAMILY Session during SEPTEMBER and
SCORE in SO many ways:

⭐You will SAVE a ton of money while purchasing 
CHRISTMAS GIFT PORTRAITS for your friends and family.

⭐You will have your CHRISTMAS CARDS addressed and ready while
others haven't even had theirs taken.

⭐You will have a STRESS-FREE Holiday Season by checking your 
yearly family portrait OFF your list before your list is a MILE long.

Why Wait? 

We are featuring a BRAND NEW LOCATION for this year's 
FALL FAMILY DAYS.
This is such a cool venue, but there are only certain times we are able to photograph there.
On the Weekends, because of weddings, we can only photograph early in the morning.
From the Moment the Sun Rises* we are able to start photographing, but we must be out by 10. 
That leaves us with time to only do 4-30 minute sessions each day.
So...book EARLY if you want one of these spots!

Business Portrait Friday 2017 Coming SOON! {San Antonio Portrait Photographer}

The other day, I happened to see an ad for a business professional and was surprised to see his business headshot.

It was awful.
It looked like it could have been taken with an iPhone.
The lighting was bad. The quality was poor. There was no "enhancing" done to the image.
Overall, the image was not much better than a "selfie" that you might see on Instagram or Facebook.

I started wondering WHY? Why would someone who is in business (no matter what business) make the decision to have their image be portrayed in such poor light? I mean, we all learned in Marketing 101 that the first impression is the most important impression, right? So the first impression he has made on me is one of lack of quality, attention to detail and genuine lack of care for his professional "image".

Maybe your headshot does look great, it was SO great that you haven't updated it in over 5 years! There is another reason to have a new headshot taken. Trends change, styles change, you change. If you are wearing shoulder pads in your business suit, then it is time for a new photo (and a new suit...LOL).

Whether you choose ME to do your professional headshots, or you choose some other professional, PLEASE do yourself a favor: Get a Professional Business portrait taken.

We are having an AMAZING sale coming up on August 25th. It's called BUSINESS PORTRAIT FRIDAY.  Our professional headshots complete with session and digital file are on a major sale. Normally $350, you can get a high resolution file for only $150 or a low resolution file for $50. This quick 10 minute session includes ONE outfit, ONE background, SEVERAL poses to choose from and ONE file of your choice. Of course, you can always purchase more should you love several poses.

What is the difference between High res and Low res? 
        High resolution is good for printing purposes. Planning on creating a billboard or business cards or a brochure? This is the one for you. Of course, it also includes a copy for web use as well.


        Low resolution is good only for online use. Website, Facebook, Linked in, etc. Don't try to print them, they will look pixelated and blurry.

Family Portraits in New York City! {San Antonio Destination Photographer}

I LOVE NY!
I mean really. What's not to love? 
Great Food! Great Entertainment! Great Exercise! 
And of course, the photo opportunities are ENDLESS!

In May, I got to visit again. 
This time we had a girls trip with just my sister and I. As usual for me, it was a working vacation, but we carved out some time to relax and take in the City.
While I was there, my good friends and fellow Master Photographers Jeff and Carolle Dachowski met up with us so I could create a new family portrait for them. My sister was the appropriately named "The Goddess of Light" that evening as I couldn't have created the portraits without her.

Here are a few of my favorite images from our quick session in New York City.

Fiesta Queen La Reina Linda {San Antonio Photographer}

In honor of the first day of Fiesta, I thought I would share with you some of the portraits I created of this year's Fiesta Queen, La Reina Linda, Christina Martinez.

I have known this beautiful lady for decades and have had the privilege of photographing her for all the milestones in her adult life. Engagement, Wedding, Maternity, Newborn and countless Family Portraits. This girl is married to an equally awesome guy named Tomas. They are entrepreneurs, business owners, philanthropists and parents.

We were blessed with a beautiful day in San Antonio at the iconic Alamo.

Thank you Christina for always trusting me as your photographer.
