Shelby Williams – A Gruene Adventure!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It’s the first full week back in classes and I’ve been hustling to keep up with all of the new material. I love reading, but there’s going to be a ton of it this semester! Here’s hoping the start of your week has been well and you’re looking at a great end to it!

Today’s blog post is all about Miss Shelby Williams. I watched Shelby grow into a beautiful human that has so many dreams and goals throughout her college career. She’s a previous member of UTSA’s Volleyball team, so if you’re a die hard Runners’ fan, you’ve seen her in action before. Shelby is full of excitement and will to live, packed to the brim with intention and determination, and filled with so much beauty – it’s actually insane.

I’ve shot with Shelby once before and upon finishing that shoot, she brought up Gruene. Since that’s much more her scene, I decided the next time we shot, we’d absolutely shoot there. Not only did she fit in perfectly to the beautiful surroundings, she stood out in the most perfect way, as well. When she stepped out of her huge truck wearing a jacket with fringe and the coolest hat – I knew this session was going to be amazing.

& I was not a single bit disappointed. As you go through these, I hope you can enjoy how comfortable Shelby is in this environment. The candid nature of these posed photos makes them most excellent – & the addition of her awesome hat just makes these even better. I had a blast with these, & I hope you enjoy them just as much!

There you have it! Shelby, you’re a blast to shoot with and I’m so excited to try out all the new spots you showed me. I can’t wait to see the next spot we decide to shoot in and the adventure we have! If you’re looking for a shoot like this, send us a message – lets make some most excellent memories!

We’re currently booking our Valentine’s Day Studio Sessions – they’re fast and fun & our backdrop is very cute. These are going for $95 and have been a blast so far. I’m turning over all of my edits to you guys – so you’re getting a lot for your money. We’ve also discounted our full hour length sessions! Book with us now until 2/14 & grab 15% off ANY hour session. These discounted sessions make for great gifts! We’ve even created a voucher for those that have purchased these sessions for other people!

After taking a look at my calendar, it’s easily filling up much quicker than it did last year. I’m currently booking senior sessions, engagements, and family session all the way out in June already. If you’re looking to have some photos done and want to make sure your date is still available… book with us now! This year has been full of fun already & we can’t wait to see where the days take us. Use the code BOSHNASTY20 to refer a friend and both parties will receive 20% off their session.

As always, thank you so very much for the support! This is a dream and has been an absolute blast. We couldn’t have done anything close to this without you guys and all the different ways we’ve been supported over the passed couple of years. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Fall Time Beauty – Bridget Style!

Happy Monday, everyone! We just got back from Orlando with Men’s Basketball (which means you’ll be getting basketball galleries here very soon!) & it was nice to catch up some editing I’ve been putting off. This is the busiest time of the year and I’m loving every second of it!

Today’s blog post is all about my girl Bridget. This girl is someone I met through athletics and I’m so glad to know her. She’s full of life, beauty, and this charisma that goes with her everywhere. Which is probably why she’s a fabulous cheerleader, too! The last time you saw her, she was on the blog with her handsome boyfriend, Mundo – but today, it’s all about her!

We went to one of the prettiest parks in Boerne and wandered around right through the golden hour. One of the best parts of fall is all the gorgeous colors, and these photos absolutely showcase that. Not only were the colors amazing, but the scenery we found to shoot around was amazing, too!

As you go through these, enjoy all of the simple poses that really highlight all of the other gorgeousness within the photo. I think it’s cool to just be able to capture someone naturally, and we did a great job of that with Bridget during this shoot. I’m stoked for these, so I hope you enjoy!

There you have it! Bridget, thank you for being amazing and always be up for whatever we throw your way. That makes this job so much more worth it! If you’re up for an adventure around this gorgeous location – shoot us a message! It would be absolutely perfect for Christmas card photos.

We’re currently booking our holiday sessions and man – it’s getting really really busy! If you’re looking to have some photos done, please make sure you book a session soon. It’s one of the peak times for basketball and we’re already pretty booked for the rest of the month! We’re also offering our cheapest prices of the year – so don’t miss out!

I’m also really excited to announce our Flower Vault mini sessions! They just put together their Christmas installation and it’s gorgeous – which means I have to make sure I shoot you gorgeous people there at least a time or two. This upcoming Saturday (11/16) and Sunday (11/17) we’re headed to Flower Vault from 12-5. You can use the contact form at the bottom of this post to grab yourself a spot – I’ve already filled a few out already!

As always, thank you for your support. This is a dream, and it’s only possible because of all you beautiful humans that contribute to it. Whether that’s booking a session, looking at a photo, or simply reading this post. Thank you! You are all the best and we’re soooo grateful!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Brianna – A Fall Photo Adventure!

Happiest of Tuesday’s everyone! It’s a cool week for the Modica’s. We’re headed to California to take on the greatest place on Earth – Disneyland! Josh and I are the biggest Disney nerds, so it’s going to be a blast getting to get on all the rides and meet all the characters we’ve been talking about for ages!

Today’s blog post is all about my gorgeous friend Brianna! She’s a member of UTSA’s cheerleading squad and I absolutely adore all of those beautiful humans. As someone who did routines over and over again until I got them absolutely perfect, I hold a little bit of kinship with these athletes. It doesn’t hurt that they’re all stunning and take the most wonderful photos!

We adventured around one of my favorite places, Cibolo Nature Center. As you go through that place, you see tons of different foliage that makes it seem like you enter a new place each and every time. It is finally starting to look like fall there, so we decided to make the most of it. Brianna is a nature in front of the camera, too! We adventured around and I pointed places out, she struck her pose, and then we moved on. It’s amazing when sessions are that easy and seamless!

When you go through these, enjoy Brianna’s natural beauty and the way she sets a tone in the photos. They were a blast to take and an even better time to edit! I hope you enjoy!

There you have it! Brianna, thanks for coming out to shoot with us. You’re a stunning person both inside and out. We’ll be stoked to work with you again in the future!

We’re still booking our fall sessions, y’all. They have been so beautiful this far and it’s only going to get better as the weather actually starts to change around here. If you’re looking to get some seasonal family portraits done, or just want to tumble around in the gorgeous fall foliage, let’s have an adventure! Our fall sessions are discounted to a really great price right now and will stay that way until 11/1 – so definitely take advantage of that before it’s too late!

Our Christmas sessions are coming up, too! We’re currently booking all of these sessions and want to maximize on all the beauty that is coming to San Antonio before it gets too cold. We’re putting together two different types of sessions – Grinch minis and Christmas Tree Farm sessions. You can book either of these sessions throughout the rest of the year. They’ll be perfect for Christmas cards and all that fun stuff. My gorgeous Joshy is going to be The Grinch – & it’s going to be an absolute blast!

You can use the contact form at the bottom of this post to book your session! I’m quickly starting to fill up my schedule because basketball season is starting and I’ll be insanely busy with that. So, if you’d like to book any type of session, do it soon!

Lastly, we want to say thank you! You guys are the reason I get to go out and shoot every week. It has been a blast developing this business and it wouldn’t be where it is without those who book with us, check out our pictures, and read my rambles once or twice a week. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Kyndall & The Historic Pearl!

Happiest of Saturday’s, guys! Today is a big day in the Modica household. Not only is it a three day weekend, it’s the start of UTSA Football! I’m so very excited to get back into the action shot game. It all started with the Women’s Soccer game last night – which was a whole lot of fun and a great start to this jam packed weekend.

Today’s subject on the blog is Kyndall! This chick is someone I’ve known since my undergrad years. I used to be a student athletic trainer for UTSA’s Track and Field team. I spent two years helping these athletes compete to the best of their ability. In my time with everyone, Kyndall was one of those people that was so very interesting to get to know. Her injury history was rich, so she spent lots of time with us in the training room and on the table out at Park West. In all that time, you end up getting to know someone.

When I approached her to do some photos, she was immediately on board. & when we met at The Pearl, it was like it hadn’t been a few years since we’d last seen each other. As an adult, it’s cool to see how earlier connections play out later in life. Despite our time being warm and shrouded with humidity, it was so much fun. We laughed, talked about our lives, and got the best of pictures. Kyndall, you’re a total gem, my friend.

As you go through these, pay special attention to Kyndall’s shirt. She had a whole selection of them, but the one she decided on is one of the coolest shirts I’ve ever seen. You can see the fun we had throughout these, so I hope you enjoy!

There you have it! Both the location and the person were completely perfect during this shoot. Photography gives me the ability to hangout and connect with people on a different level & I’m forever grateful!

Since it’s Labor Day weekend, we’re keeping our $50 off deal until 9/2! We’re getting very booked up and very busy with with UTSA goodness. If you’re wanting to plan a family session, grabbing your slot now would be the best decision – you can take advantage of the discount and make sure you get a date.

I’ve also decided to do my fall minis a little differently. Instead of having a couple dates to book, I’ll be taking any date through November 1. These mini sessions are $140, 45 minutes and all edited images (this usually falls between 30-50, depending on how quickly we’re able to move through the session.) I think this will be more fun for everyone and allow for multiple locations in the San Antonio area with their specific kiss of fall. If you decide to book with us before 8/31, we’ll add an extra $10 off. That means a $140 becomes $80!

Lastly, we’re finally opening up our new sports photography packages. I spoke to multiple youth sports league coaches and got some insider information on what packages like this should consist of. So – these team action photography packages are new and improved, focusing on game play photos and portraits! If you’re interested in booking us for your season or some games within the season, shoot us a message! I can’t wait to work with all the different athletes throughout the year.

Thanks for following along! This wouldn’t be real for us without all the people viewing and booking our services. It means the world to be able to do this sort of job for amazing people!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Shylla & Sierra – An Austin Adventure!

Happy Sunday, everyone! It has been a crazy week for me and my mind is everywhere, but I’m here and presenting this gorgeous gallery – so there’s that! If you’re starting school tomorrow, good luck to you & if you’ve already started school, all the power to you!

Today’s blog is all about two ladies who Josh & I had the pleasure of meeting at The Dominion in Austin. To begin with, we absolutely love Austin! There are so many things to do, so many places to go, and some crazy concert venues that we absolutely love. We’re complete music junkies, so we head in that direction all the time. However, we’ve never been to this gorgeous mall & it was an absolute adventure!

Shylla & Sierra were a total blast to have throughout the session. It’s obvious that they’ve been friends for a while, because they talked and laughed with each other the entire time – so the pictures are very natural and fun. As we adventured through the different stores, I pointed at a wall and these two just went with it. If all clients could be like that!

As you go through these, enjoy the eclectic backgrounds and natural chemistry between these two buddies. It was a blast to shoot these – hope you enjoy!

There you have it! Ladies, you guys were great to meet and excellent tour guides. If you’re in this area and want to adventure around Austin with us, shoot us a message and lets make some amazing photos!

We’re currently still offering $50 off all of our sessions until the end of August. I want to cling to the summer as long as I can, so if you book a sunset session, we’ll give an extra $10 off! That’s right, ANOTHER $10 off!

We’re also putting together our fall mini sessions, which will take place September 21st and October 12th! Our backdrop is gorgeous and we can’t wait to see who comes out to shoot with us! The current $50 off can be used towards these sessions if you book before the end of August – (which is an amazing deal for these!) so don’t miss out.

As always, thank you for hanging in there with us. We couldn’t do this without all the people who book with us & look at our stuff throughout the year! Y’all are the greatest and we can’t wait to see what else comes our way!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Hippy Hopper – Josh Modica Edition!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope the week started out in the best of ways and the rest of it is shaping up to be pretty great, too. Josh & I are heading to Alabama to do some photography and see my family – so it’s looking like a good one for us!

Today’s blog is one of my favorites – because it’s all about Josh. A couple weeks ago, we had plans to head back to Alabama. We ended up not being able to, so I booked a couple local jobs – then those fell through, too. When all was said and done, Josh offered up a really great “make-up” idea. So, we got in the car at 3AM, drove down to South Padre Island, and managed to grab beautiful photos of a pretty perfect sunset.

I am eternally grateful for my adorable husband and his great ideas. He’s always willing to go with the flow & it usually turns out being the best it can be, regardless of what we end up doing. Not only does he have good ideas, but he’s also handsome as all get out. I’m pretty sure I make him stand in front of the camera way more than he wants to, but when he does – it’s my most favorite. It’s always so easy to tell him what to do and where to go, because he’s already in the process of doing it. My muse, this guy – my handsome muse!

As you go through these, enjoy the cool outfits that Josh picked out and the cool ways he decides to work the camera. There are several that are just his shadow, and some that are so bright it’s insane – and I’m so happy about them! Enjoy the bright orange-yellow-pink of a South Padre sunrise!

There you have it! Joshy, you’ll always be my favorite to photograph. I’m forever grateful for my adventure buddy, and can’t wait to see where the lens takes us next!

We are currently having an end of the summer sale on ALL of our sessions – which means you can grab $50 off any session until the end of August. & if you book a holiday session, we’ll add an extra $20 off to your total session price.

My fall schedule has opened up a little more, so I will be booking some weekday shoots as well as the already scheduled weekends! I’m really excited to be a little more flexible in my booking, and can’t wait to shoot more with you lovely people!

We’re also officially booking our back to school sessions. We will be hosting a few hours of mini sessions on Saturday, August 24th between 9-1. The sessions can be booked in 30 minute intervals, and the $50 discount can be applied! If you’re interested in one of these time slots, fill out a contact form below and we’ll save your spot.

Lastly, I want to get a head start on all of my action photography – since the youth sport seasons are starting up soon! I’m freelancing quite a bit and am stoked to be able to work with more teams & sports. If you’re looking for individual action shots, or shots for your team, please reach out – we’ve compiled a whole new list of packages that can be used for all sports and action shot types! I cannot wait to take part in all of the sports goodness.

As always, thank you for tagging along! We wouldn’t be able to do this without everyone who reads, books, and follows our crazy adventures. We appreciate it and can’t wait to see what comes next!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Zoe takes Eilan – A Portrait Session

Happy Thursday, everyone! I’m pretty stoked to see the weekend at the end of this week. For some reason, this one has felt like an eternity. Aside from that, I’m grateful for the jam packed days I’ve had and the ones that are heading my way. It doesn’t hurt that we’re heading to Austin this weekend, either – I love a good trip to Austin!

Today’s blog post is all about my good pal Zoe. This lady and I go way back. Maybe not in the sense that we’ve been close forever, but I knew her in some of my most important years as a young adult. Zoe ran track with UTSA during my time as a student athletic trainer. In my training knowledge came knowledge about people – and this chick was always one that gave out as good as she got. If you’re looking to have a good conversation, seek her out – it’s never dull!

This session took us a few months to plan, which is funny – because it seemed like we’d just seen each other when I walked up to her at Eilan. Once we finally settled on a time and date and actually got to meet up – I knew this thing was going to go really well. As we went around the gorgeous shopping complex, we chatted about life, got some good shots, and enjoyed a pretty awesome summer day. All and all, a session I’m so stoked to have been a part of!

As you go through these, take in the cool background and Zoe’s impeccable posing ability. There’s a lot of looking to the sky and I appreciate the aesthetic that brings to the natural light we were shooting in. Check them out below!

There you have it! Zoe, thanks for being a champ & braving the mid-morning heat. These are beautiful and I’m so stoked to have seen you!

To round out the summer, we’re putting on some sunset minis at Cibolo Nature Center! August 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…

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…

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…

Miss Shelby – Flower Edition!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I’m ready to get over the hump of this week and get one step closer to the weekend. Easter for my family is filled with good food, great movies, and usually some sort of photography adventure. To be real, though – most days are an excuse for photography adventures.

Today’s blog post centers around one of my good friends, Miss Shelby. Shelby is a tutor in my office and has been on the blog before. As a photographer, one way I can share what I do with friends is get them in front of the lens. I’m not the best when it comes to verbal communication, so pictures and directions while taking them are how I can express myself the most efficiently. Shelby ended up coming with me to The Flower Vault because of a cancelled session and her great heart.

The Flower Vault is amazing, y’all! If you’re looking for a good spot to take some pictures without having to worry about the lighting, or the background, this is the place for you. All the rooms are well lit, and can be used in so many different ways. As you go through these pictures, you’ll see what I mean. Not only is Shelby nicer than most people, she’s also gorgeous and completely photogenic.

Going through each of the rooms with my pal was a blast, and you can see the fun we had while taking these pictures within them. I’m a firm believer that a picture says a thousand words. These shout “I enjoy life” and that’s some of the best artistry you can capture.

Enjoy our adventure below!
