Conner & Shelby – A Golden Light Adventure!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! When I looked at the calendar today, it hit me how fast time is flying. It seems like the summer just started, and here we are – a couple weeks from back to school. Then I think about how rich & full the summer has been and it makes sense that it’s already the end. Crazy, right? I hope your summer has been much of the same & the end will be the best yet!

Today’s blog is all about Conner & Shelby. These two are pretty well known around UTSA. They both play in UTSA’s SOSA, which is the extremely talented band. When they play at the basketball games, they give The Convo life in a way that no one really has before. They are loud, skilled, and so ready to heckle an opponent. Being a part of a group that can bring that much entertainment & noise, I knew they were going to be a blast to be around and shoot.

I wasn’t disappointed, either. We spent an hour exploring Cibolo Nature Center during the best part of the day – golden hour. They weren’t afraid to take off their shoes and get their feet wet when we waded through the little creek running through the park – what’s better than that? All and all, we were able to grab the best of the light & the best of Conner and Shelby.

As you go through these, take in the rich yellow & orange. It’s so insanely eye catching and bathes these two in the most gorgeous hue. I had a blast editing these – so I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

There you have it! Conner & Shelby, thank you again for braving the heat and bugs and bright lights. You two are a blast & we can’t wait to work with you again!

The Art of Eliza Parker

Happy Tuesday, everyone! My Monday was filled with doctor’s appointments, frustration, and some editing. While the rest of the day wasn’t the greatest, getting to go through each of these gorgeous beauties made it all better. Here’s hoping your day was excellent, and if it wasn’t, there was a light at the end of your tunnel!

Today’s blog post is all about Eliza Parker. If you’ve been around for a while, you’ve seen this name before – because she’s one of the coolest people and one of my favorite people to be around/shoot. The chick is stunning without even trying, and talented beyond all belief. She can tutor, she can make your social media look amazing, and she can PAINT! Which is what you’re about to see.

When I got the idea to showcase my art with other art, I knew Eliza was the only person that could make this vision what I wanted it to be. She jumped up at the chance, which I’m so insanely grateful for. So, after a quick trip to our favorite craft store, we were ready to produce some art.

For the rest of our time together during this session, we listened to music, talked about life, and created these gorgeous beauties. Now, the finished piece of this little adventure hangs on our wall – which I’m so very grateful for. It’s so cool to see someone else’s vision of what we would like and who we are. Eliza, you’re a vision, my dude. These pictures are only going to show half of the amazingness that was produced that day.

As you go through these, enjoy the evolution of her painting. There are photos from the very beginning, all the way through the very end of her process. I wanted to highlight what it was like to go through the enter vision, not just a finished product. Here’s hoping we hit that nail right on the head!

There you have it! Eliza, you’re a true talent and I’m so very excited to have caught your spirit. These are some of my favorites to date – so thank you for that! If you’re an artist and want someone to invade your creative space for a while as you work, I’m your girl! Let’s do some art together and make some magic.

I’m currently looking for a model(s) for Friday morning! If you’re interested in filling the spot, fill out of the contact form below. This 90 minute session will come with some free photos and lots of fun!

To round out the summer, we’re putting on some sunset minis at Cibolo Nature Center! August 1st, 8th, & 15th we’ll be out in Boerne for two mini session times. You can book either 6:30 or 7:15 so we can catch that gorgeous honey golden light. If you’re interested in sessions that are lower in price and faster than the norm, these are where it’s at!

We’re also still offering 15% off all our couple/engagement/wedding packages! Until the end of the summer, you and your forever person can get photos for a reduced price. We’ve been loving all the gorgeous summer sunlight, so don’t wait around – it’s the best time of the year for those sunset adventures!

Lastly, we’re now booking into October/November/December – which means I’m putting together my holiday session lists. Throughout the next couple of months, I’ll be shooting several different minis, on location Halloween & Christmas styled sessions, and lots of family portraits! The spots I have available are slowly starting to fill up – so as an incentive to book early, we’re offering 15% off all of these sessions as well. I can’t wait to see the magic we can make!

As always, thank you for tagging along! If you want to know about these different sessions, subscribe to the blog to get an email notification right when the information becomes available. The Boshnasty Photos family is slowly growing and we’re stoked to see what the fall brings our way!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Vivian & Kaleb – A Couple’s Shoot

Happy Thursday, everyone! It’s a good week when I get to spend both Thursday & Friday shooting and editing. I’m enjoying all the things summer has provided me with, and the photography has been one of the best parts. Bring on all the beautiful people & amazing weather!

Today’s blog post is all about Vivian & Kaleb! These two are the most adorable couple I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. We also spent our time shooting around Flower Vault, which happens to be one of the best studios around here! Between all of the gorgeous backgrounds and the sweetness of the two of them – it was an excellent Saturday morning.

I’ve worked with Vivian before, and she already knew how the session would flow – so I spent most of my time making sure her other half felt just as comfortable. It didn’t take much effort, however – Kaleb is a cool dude that is so insanely in love with Vivian that the shots came naturally and the hour passed easily!

Vivian & Kaleb, thanks for introducing me to who you are as a couple. It’s so nice to be able to get to know a couple when they’re in their natural habitat with each other. As you go through these pictures, you’ll clearly be able to see how much these two mean to each other!

Enjoy our Flower Vault adventure below!

Thanks again, guys! You two are so cute together and the pictures cement that fact so completely. Let’s shoot again sometime soon!

We’re currently offering 15% off our engagement/wedding sessions to all my newly engaged friends! Fill out the contact form below to get the process started.

We’re also offering 10% off holiday card sessions today & tomorrow if you book with us now! I’m quickly running out of open spots in October/November, so make sure you get a jump on booking your card session and grab a good deal while you’re at it.

As always, thank you for the never ending support! We couldn’t do this without you and are so appreciative of everyone who continuously comes back to view our pictures, get their photos taken, or simply know who we are and send good vibes out into the universe for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Until next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Allie & The Wonder Chamber!

Happiest of Saturday’s, everyone! It has been a minute since I put up a new adventure, and I’m very excited to share this one with you guys. This adventure was at a new place that was filled with potential photography goodness. I’m hoping that this isn’t the only time I get to frequent this place!

Today’s blog post is all about Allie and the cool little gem of a place she found – The Wonder Chamber. Since I found out about Flower Vault, I’ve taken multiple clients to enjoy all of the different backgrounds and flexibility a place like that affords. When Allie brought up Wonder Chamber, I was so very excited. Anything that’s going to make my creative juices flow is something that I can get behind. As we walked in and looked around, I knew this was going to be one of the coolest shoots I’ve gotten to do!

Allie is one of the coolest people I know. Meeting her through Eliza is one of the best things to happen. Between the two of them, there’s almost too much cool for me to fit in! However, both ladies are great models, so I take advantage of how gorgeous they are every chance I can. So, Allie wanting to explore this new and exciting place with me was really cool and I’m so glad we adventured together!

When you go through these photos, I hope you take in all of the different backgrounds – they are creative, extremely unique, and totally different from one another. It makes getting great pictures super easy and brings people out of their shell. By the end, Allie had the biggest grin on her face and seemed to be having the best time. You can tell throughout the pictures how great of a place this is!

Enjoy our Wonder Chamber adventure!

There you have it! Allie, you’re a total gem and I’m so excited to see where life takes you. I also can’t wait to see what other adventures we get to have together. That’s half the fun of being a photographer, getting to have a great time with great people!

If you’re interested in your own session like this, fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page. I would love to go and make my way around this place again. There are still so many things that can be done!

To all my newly engaged couples, we’re offering 15% off ALL of our engagement/wedding packages. That means you’re basically getting your boudoir photos for free! Wedding season is getting busy for me, so make sure you grab this opportunity while you can. I can’t wait to see all you beautiful people on the best days of your lives!

That’s it for now. As always, thanks for sticking around and taking in all that we do around here. It means the most and I wouldn’t get to do all of these fun things without you guys!

Until next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

The Nicola’s – An In-Home Session

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I’m so very stoked about this week. We’re currently spending some quality time with my sister and niece, and the 4th of July is quickly approaching. It’s cool to see how everyone decides to celebrate our country & the cool freedoms we’re allowed. We usually BBQ, grab some sparklers, and enjoy the sweet outdoor activities (cornhole is kind of my game!)

Today’s blog post is all about The Nicola’s! If you’ve been following for a while, you’ve seen this name a couple times before. Aundrea & Angelo are a sweet couple that we love getting to see. Documenting their life is just another cool little perk. This time, we were lucky enough to spend some time with their gorgeous puppy, too! As a family, The Nicola’s are so organized, put together, and seem to have the most fun. It doesn’t hurt that Maggie is one of the cutest puppers I’ve ever seen.

When I found out they were moving into what they consider their forever home, I knew I needed to help document the transition. In-home sessions are all the rage right now, too – so that was an added plus. There is so much of both Aundrea & Angelo throughout the house. Their decor is tasteful and radiates their commitment to each other and their faith. It was a blast to get to know these two a little better through the intricacies of their home.

As you go through these, pay special attention to the color coordination. I’m so impressed by the continuity of beauty throughout their home. Guys, thank you for letting us invade your space and take photos of you in your natural habitat.

There you have it! Aundrea & Angelo, you guys are beautiful as always. Your home is spectacular and I can’t wait to see what you guys create with that amazing space!

To celebrate 4th of July, we’re offering 35% off ALL of our sessions. This will run through July 5th, so we hope to hear from you soon! These summer adventures have been my favorite & I can’t wait to see where you guys take us next!

As always, thank you so very much for your support! We couldn’t keep doing what we’re doing without you guys. We’re so very grateful for the adventures we get to take!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

& Happy Fourth of July!

Kalista & The Historic Pearl

Happy Monday, everyone! One of the best holidays is coming up – which means my sister and niece are in town. They come every year and we have a great time celebrating our freedom and the cool bond of our family. The summer is by far the greatest when it comes to spending time with people you don’t normally get to see & I’m so happy for that!

Today’s blog post is all about my beautiful pal, Kalista. She is a UTSA cheerleader I met through my athletics gig. She was new to the Roadrunner gang, but took it by storm nonetheless. We spent a rainy morning navigating our way around The Pearl – which is beautiful, even with a grey cloudy sky illuminating it. There are so many great photo taking places and the scenery is diverse & rich, which makes for even better final products!

The hour we spent navigating one of San Antonio’s main landmarks was an absolute blast. Kalista has a great personality and loves to smile a gorgeous smile. When she stood in front of the camera, there was no hesitation. It’s so cool to see confidence like that in someone so young! To say it helped the pictures is an understatement – these are chalk full of confidence and self-love!

As you take a look at these, enjoy not only The Pearl’s highlights, but also the way this chick can work the camera! A lot of fun was had and I think it translates directly into the tone of this adventure.

Enjoy some of my favorites!

There you have it! Kalista, thanks for being so easy to shoot & fun to be around. That combination makes my job the absolute best. If you’re ever in town & would like to explore The Pearl with little ole’ me tagging along – let me know, we’ll make some magic!

We’re currently putting on 4th of July mini sessions. I’ll be shooting all the way until 12PM on July 4th, so there’s lots of time to celebrate the holiday! This one is one my favorites, so we put together a cool little backdrop. I’ve added a contact form to the bottom of this post for easy booking!

I also wanted to let everyone know that our fall is getting pretty busy. I’m currently booking through December & will have limited dates once basketball season starts. We’re offering 25% off pre-booked sessions for the fall until the end of July! This is a good deal, so take advantage! I’m so stoked to get to work with everyone & can’t wait to meet all you future clients.

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Vivian – Class of 2019!

Happy Friday, everyone! We are looking at the beginning of the weekend & it’s a very nice feeling. For the passed couple of years, I’ve taken Friday’s off – & I spend most of those off days shooting, editing, or sleeping. Today is going to be a good combination of both. I cannot wait to spend the weekend doing the things I love with the people I love the most.

Today’s blog post is all about my good buddy Vivian. Okay – so, I’ll let you in on something… up until walking to the Convo, we hadn’t met Vivian before. However, she was in the same program as me at the same time… just a year behind. By the time I was done taking classes in class, Vivian was just starting. We ended up missing each other by a few months, but fate brought us together anyway. Well, fate and another good friend, Nancy.

Vivian is a vibrant chica with lots of spirit & the same thirst for knowledge all of the people I hold dear have. We took the same classes, had the same professors… heck, we even seemed to like the same classes the best. Our tour around campus was easy and most importantly – fun! We hit all the good spots without any interruptions. It’s weird to say this, but getting graduation pictures done after walking is probably one of the best times to do it. So – if you’re looking to do some last minute shots, you know where to find me!

Ms. Vivian, thank you for trusting us with this celebration of success! These are some of my favorites & I’m so very stoked to have gotten to do them for you. Here’s hoping we bump into each other academically, or professionally in the future!

There you have it! Vivian, we wish you all the success in the world – there is a lot more knowledge out there to seek, so never stop. I’ll be right there with you!

We’ve recently started offering a new type of senior session. For all Class of 2020 Seniors, we’re now offering two part sessions. We’ll take some senior portraits now, then come back & shoot again when caps & gowns start making their way out. That way, everyone gets to celebrate to the fullest! Contact us below to find out more about this program!

Until June 21st, our regular senior sessions will be $75! That means all high school & college grads that didn’t get the pictures they wanted before they walked can still grab a good deal! I love academics & this achievement is big, so I’m stoked to offer these sessions at the price they are!

LASTLY – our summer celebration is still going on! Grab 20% off all sessions, including our wedding/engagement packages. We’ll keep this one around for a little bit longer, so don’t miss out! It’s a gorgeous time of the year for family photos…

Thank you, as always, for coming here and reading about our business adventures! Without you guys, none of this would be possible. We appreciate you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Arlayna – Class of 2019

Happy Sunday, everyone! It has been a crazy couple days for The Modica’s. We’re currently in Springfield, Missouri – soaking up family time & enjoying the many things this gorgeous place has to offer. May is going to be a blast and this is our starting leg!

Today’s blog post is all about Arlayna! Arlayna is someone I’ve known since my last semester of undergrad. I forgot to take statistics and needed the class to graduate, whereas she was a bright eyed freshman just getting started. After a couple weeks of sitting at the end of her table, I finally leaned over and made a connection. We ended up being in the same presentation group at the end of the semester, securing myself an A in the class. Now, Arlayna is all grown up and finishing up her degrees in Nutrition & Dietetics!

As someone who gets to interact with people being academically successful on a daily basis, it’s pretty cool to see people do good things. Yet, it’s even better when the people doing these great things are people I’ve known for a while – and have seen at several different stages of life. Growing up is measured not just by your successes, but by those around you, too – and it’s cool to see we’ve all done some pretty excellent growing.

Take in the pictures below and enjoy the uniqueness that Arlayna brings to the table. She’s stunning, has the brightest of smiles, and used some of the greatest props I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. Next time you want to bring an apple to your session, don’t hesitate – it actually looks fantastic!

Congrats, Arlayna – Happy Graduation!
