An Eilan Adventure with Beale-Madison

Hey friends – I’m back (much quicker than before) with another new gallery! This one is not only at one of my favorite places but with a gorgeous new friend. The fall is my favorite time of the year, so these photos are packed with color and life.

Ms. Beale-Madison is a new addition at UTSA. The athletics department is like a big family & she immediately fit into the group. As a person who struggles with personal interactions, one of the best ways for me to connect with someone new is through my photography. What better way to introduce Beale to the beauty of San Antonio than through a photo session?

Eilan, which is a common location you’ve probably seen on the blog before, is beautiful this time of the year. It’s right before they break out the decorations for Christmas, so you can feel the holiday approaching in the air. The buildings are gorgeous & make for a different pictures there every time I do a shoot there.

Before we get to the stunning photos, let me tell you about some of the upcoming things happening around here at Boshnasty Photos!

If you’re looking to book a holiday session, do so early! My November/December schedule is already hectic – plus, it’s visually stunning right now; who wouldn’t want to get their family photos done in all this luscious green surrounding us at the moment?

On top of family sessions for the upcoming holiday season, Josh & I are bringing back our Christmas mini sessions! This year, Josh is getting back into the Grinch mask to bring life to our Texas based Whoville once again. We’ve upgraded our backdrop and can’t wait to celebrate with everyone. To bring something new to the table this year, we’ve also put together ‘cookies with Santa’ mini sessions that are going to be an absolute blast! I’ll be releasing info on both sessions very soon – if you’d like to be once of the first to receive it, leave your name & email below so I can add you to our mailing list.

Spaces will be limited, so don’t wait too long!

Now, without further ado, here are some of my favorites from my adventure with Beale-Madison!

Pat & Justin – Father & Son

Hi friends! So, I know its been a while. I clicked onto my own website the other day and kind of cringed at the date of my last post – how can I expect you guys to want to be around when I haven’t even updated you on my work in ages… absolute ages! You know how it gets, though – life is busy and some things end up taking a back seat. Fear not, however, I’ve been shooting nonstop and working with some of my very favorite people! One of the best parts of this job is getting to make friends with the people who come out to shoot with us.

Pat & Justin are gracing us with their father-son goodness today. Both of these fellas are humans that exist outside of my photography life, too. We’ve been shooting Justin since he was a tiny baby and Patrick is a good friend of ours from Josh’s job. It’s an honor to document the big moments in Pat & Kelly’s lives now that Justin is around making their time much more exciting.

As you go through them, take a look at just how similar these two are to each other. From looks to mannerisms, the Grant boys aren’t lacking in sameness. These were a blast to shoot and even more fun to share with you all!

Oh, before you start clicking through the gallery, I just wanted to let you know that we’re having a little sale on all of our full length sessions! Book before the 30th and grab 10% off. We’re also booking our Grinch photo sessions already, so jump on those while the good dates are still available! Joshy is being a bit more selective about his time in the suit! Send us a contact form to get your session booked!

I hope you guys enjoy Pat & Justin’s father-son session!

Kissing Booth Minis! <3

Happy Saturday, guys! I’m hoping that it’s the best kind of weekend day, whether that’s out and about, or on your couch with your favorite show. With my fella on the road, I’ve been doing some catch up & I can’t wait to share today’s photos with you all!

For Valentine’s this year, Josh & I decided it would be cool to hand make something a little different than our usual. If you know anything about Joshy boy, you know that he’s pretty handy – so, putting together the set up was a lot of fun. Pro tip – when you stain wood, wear gloves!

I had the idea of Lucy’s advice booth in the Peanut comics in the form of a kissing booth, & I think we totally nailed it! It’s easy to set up & a ton of fun to have people in front of. There’s nothing like reminding people of the simple things and getting a little cutesie while doing it.

We’re currently booking mini sessions with this fun little prop. These minis are the perfect gift or date night idea – we’re shooting for 25 minutes & having a blast while we do! If you’re interested in a session, send us a message – we’ve still got a few dates we’re setting up & making magic.

Check out the lovely Herrera family and their loves below – we met this family during Grinch mini times & enjoyed our time so much, we asked them to come out & shoot with us again! They’re both photogenic & filled to the brim with so much personality.

Mean One Minis – Elorah (& Torin, too)!

Hey friends! If you haven’t noticed, it’s the busy season – & I mean that with my whole heart; it’s so dang busy this time of the year. Especially in The Modica household. Between shooting, basketball season starting, and all of the family obligations – there’s a lot going on. I’m sure everyone is feeling that, at least a little – so I’m bringing you cuteness to help ease the ache.

What’s better than decompressing with one of my favorite Christmas characters, you ask? Nothing – there’s nothing better than watching my gorgeous husband get suited up, interact with our clients, and make appearances in at least half of the photos I send out (even if he is under that really warm mask :P). These shoots are some of my most favorite of the year; I relate to The Grinch in a lot of ways, so it’s cool to share that feeling and take it one step further in my work.

Torin & Elorah were a total joy to shoot with – Elorah wasn’t too keen on the big green man for a while, but she ended up coming around by the end. I’m always excited to see how these turn out, because every session is a little different, despite the same location/backdrop. It’s a lot of fun, y’all! I hope you’ve been enjoying as much as we have.

If you’re in need of one of these sessions, or just want to get some family shots done for the Christmas card, we’re running our “friends & family” discount, so don’t miss out while the goings good!

Until then, enjoy Mean One’s with Torin & Elorah!

Allie Mag – A Senior Photo Adventure!

Happiest of Monday’s, friends! It seems like the busier I am, the quicker the days go – especially the weekend. With the end of basketball season coming up, it’s a little bit insane in our household. Despite that, though – I’m enjoying every single second of the adventure and am hoping you are doing the same!

Today’s blog post is all about my good friend Allie. If you’ve been around for a while, you’ve seen Allie in lots of different forms. At Wonder Chamber, rocking a Coraline costume and most recently, as a college graduate! As someone who doesn’t have a high number of friends, it is absolutely insane to get to be a part of something so big!

One of the best parts of doing senior photos is getting to know the person I’m shooting. Since I already know a lot about Allie, we spent the time talking about her experience at UTSA, instead. I’ve been here a long time, especially as a student, but it never fails to amaze me – how different every single person’s experience on campus truly is. If you’re graduating here soon, make sure you take senior photos! It’s one thing to walk the stage, but something totally different to do your victory tour around campus and capturing every single second of it.

Miss Allie, thank you for being not only beautiful but insanely rare. There is something about the person you are that is so fun to be around and so interesting to get to experience. You’re filled with good ideas and have the kindest, most caring soul. The world is not ready for the things you’re going to bring about, but I can’t wait to see what happens, anyway!

There you have it! This tour around campus was filled with beautiful sun, the best places at UTSA, and a great friend. I can’t wait to start the process all over again!

Speaking of the process – it’s almost that time of the year again! I already have a whole slue of senior photo sessions lined up for the next coming weeks & can’t wait to add you to it! One of the best bits of this photography gig is getting to spend time with people who are excitedly achieving something. Graduation photos are some of the best representation of that. With that in mind, I’m offering all of my senior sessions for $135 if you book before 3/17. My schedule for the spring/summer is quickly getting filled up, so don’t miss out on the special date that you want!

With Spring coming up, we’re also offering our bluebonnet mini sessions. These are tons of fun, filled with lots of laughter and gorgeous scenery, and pretty quick! These mini sessions can be booked for any date in March/April and will run for $85. I want to take advantage of the immense beauty that the upcoming season brings, so lets make some gorgeous springtime memories!

Last, but definitely not least, we want to thank you all! This business is nothing without the support of the people looking at our photos, booking sessions, and keeping up with our day-to-day activities. If it wasn’t for you guys, I wouldn’t get to do what I love the most for work! More than anything, we’re insanely grateful for the people that help us make this dream a reality – so thank you so very much!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA v UAB

Happiest of Thursday’s, everyone! It’s game day in The Modica household & that’s always a treat. After getting my week of schoolwork out of the way, I finally got to get behind the computer and play with some pictures. Here’s hoping your day was just as successful as mine ended up being!

Today’s gallery is UTSA’s home battle against UAB. In the past few years, I’ve gotten to see the fellas play against this team in the convo a bunch of times & every time – it’s a pretty epic adventure. This time around was no exception, either. This season in the convo has been pretty rowdy, which always makes watching the game from the sidelines that much more epic. The band is full of the best heckling and the student section is filled with so so so many people. It’s what college is about, really.

Despite the box score not being what we wanted it to be in the end, the fellas put their all out on the court. I think I type that every single time I talk about these guys, but it’s hard not to – it’s pretty apparent. No matter the score, these guys are always fun to watch – they always put on a show and keep the crowd in it until the very end.

As you go through these, get pumped for the first game of bonus play scheduled to start at 6PM CST! Don’t miss out on the last few match ups of the season, y’all. It’s going to come down to the finish.

There you have it! The fellas are about to hit the court, so make sure you tune in where you can. The guys come back home on Sunday at 2PM – be there!

We’re quickly heading into the warm weather and that comes with blue bonnets and gorgeous flowers! We’re already in the midst of planning our bluebonnet sessions and want to make sure everyone has access to them. So – here we are. All of our bluebonnet sessions are $95, yet packed full of beauty, fun, and lots of excitement. The location we like has so great access to light – & we’re so excited.

We’re also trying to get ahead of senior photos! If you’re a 2020 graduate and want to celebrate your accomplishment for a relatively good price – you’re in the right place! Until 3/17 we’re offering our senior sessions for $135! This is the cheapest these will be until literal days before graduates are set to walk – so don’t miss out!

Lastly, we’re so happy you guys are here. This is the most fun and enjoyment I’ve been able to get out of my adult life and it’s all because of the people that support us in this adventure. It’s amazing to get to do this day in and day out, so thank you for booking sessions, checking out our photos, and simply liking what we do.

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

The Lahrman’s – A Family Adventure!

Happiest of Friday’s, everyone! All of the changes in the weather has my sinuses all out of whack, so I’m once again not feeling as well as I could – but it has given me lots of time to edit. Here’s hoping you guys are fairing a little better and the start of the weekend is looking promising!

Today’s blog post is all about our friends, The Lahrman’s. Their two gorgeous twin daughters have been on the blog before. We made some summer fun in front of these really stunning spray paint wall-art and had a blast in the process. This time around, we got to include the whole family on the fun. It’s quite a thing to shoot whole families after just dealing with the kids. You get to see where they get their personalities from and it’s always fun to see how families interact with one another.

We spent a gorgeous Sunday morning at The Pearl, navigating all of my most favorite spots. It was a little chilly, but the lighting for the day was the best it could have been. The whole experience was amazing – The Lahrman’s are a great family filled to the brim with personality and kindness that can’t really be replicated.

As you go through these I hope you enjoy just how gorgeous this family is together. Every single person has their own unique look, but there’s so much familiarity between them as well. Devon’s beautiful auburn hair and unique eyes give the girls such a different look – it’s absolutely stunning. I had a great time with these and hope you enjoy them just as much!

There you have it! Lahrman’s, you guys are the best. Thanks for trusting us with your beautiful family and letting us capture the essence of who you guys are together. If you’re looking for a session like this, use the contact form at the bottom to snag your spot!

Megan & Vida – A Pearl Brewery Adventure!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! Josh is actually home this year, so we’re stoked to get to celebrate the cheesy holiday together. In this busy time of the year, we like to celebrate any time we get to have together, so it’s cool that Valentine’s happens to fall on one of those times. Here’s hoping you’re surrounded by all the people you love doing something that you enjoy!

Today’s blog post is all about Megan & Vida. Megan is an athlete I met in my job at UTSA in the Athletic Academic Center. She played for the UTSA Soccer team, so naturally, I got to help advise her for a little while. I’ve worked with most of the teams in athletics and enjoy the heck out of the soccer girls! They’re filled with intelligence and a cool interest in life. Megan was no exception. When she approached me after I put out an advertisement for couple sessions, I knew we were going to have a great time!

I enjoy The Pearl immensely, so when we met on the day of the shoot – I was pretty stoked. The forecast was calling for rain, so I got to use my really pretty clear umbrella that I have on hand for this particular occasions. Exploring around some of my favorite spots and learning some new ones with these love birds was a total blast.

As you go through these, I hope you enjoy the visible connection between these two. It seems like they just like to have fun and the radiance of their smiles and looks in each of the pictures shows that pretty dang well. These were a blast – I hope you enjoy!

There you have it! Megan & Vida, you two are a bundle of fun. Thanks for adventuring around one of my favorite spots in San Antonio!

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, we’re offering up a flash sale on all of our sessions! Book by 11:59PM tonight and grab a session for 45% off the original price. This is an amazing deal, so don’t miss out!

I’m stoked to be close to being completely booked through the spring! There’s a lot of good stuff coming up for Boshnasty Photos – & we’re stoked to shoot with as many people as we possibly can in the beautiful weather that’s coming up. If you’re looking to book a shoot in the next couple of months, don’t wait to reach out!

Last but not, we want to say thank you to you guys! It’s the best – getting to do photography as a big part of my life. I get to be creative and travel and meet the best people, & there’s nothing better than that. Without the support of all you guys, we wouldn’t be able to have fun for a living – so THANK YOU!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Ryan takes on Eilan – A VDAY Adventure!

Happiest of Tuesday’s, everyone! I’ve been pretty lethargic all day with a sinus infection, but I couldn’t wait to get these photos up. They’re the perfect way to count down the days until VDAY on Friday. Hope you’re feeling a bit better than me and the week is shaping up to be a good one!

Today’s blog post is all about our good pal, Ryan. This kid is one of the coolest humans I’ve ever gotten to know. He’s so intelligent and has so many different interests that he knows so much about. Whenever we get together to do pictures, he is so excited and brings a lot of joy to our time together. For Josh and I, he’s someone we get to expand our craft with and it’s amazing to see him grow and change over the time we’ve known him.

If you’ve ever been to Eilan, you know that the architecture is amazing! There are so many cool buildings and colors that just seem to coordinate so well together – despite being so different. It was cool to let Ryan roam around the cool scenery and come up with things to do with the props we brought with us. His spirit is so rich in all of these, it’s pretty cool.

As you go through these, enjoy how Ryan is totally embodying a tiny Casanova. These were a total blast and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

There you have it! Ryan, you’re a blast as usual. Can’t wait to see what we come up with next. If you’re looking for a cool session like this, fill out the contact form at the bottom of this post!

As Valentine’s Day looms closer, we’ve decided to offer some sessions on THE BIG DAY. Josh mentioned that couples get dressed up beautifully and kids have parties in school – so why not offer the opportunity to get some photos done while they’re dressed to impress. It’s a pretty good idea, so we’ll be offering mini sessions on 2/14 from 11-5. These are going to be loads of fun, fast (20 minutes), and a great way to kick off a great evening with the people you love. Fill out the comment card below to grab a time!

We’re also in the works of putting together some bluebonnet sessions. If you’re interested in these, or have a good place that you know has these beauties in surplus, let us know! Spring in San Antonio is one of the best times for photos, so we’re excited to start shooting in the gorgeous weather coming up.

Lastly, we want to thank each and every person reading this right now. We get to live our dream and it’s because people support us by reading the blog, scheduling sessions, and checking out our photos. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA Men’s Basketball v. UTEP

Happiest of Thursday’s, everyone! Today is one of the only days I get to really relax and I’m taking advantage of that tenfold. It’s always a good day when I get to put together a basketball gallery, so I hope you’re enjoy your day just as much!

Today’s blog post is all about UTSA Men’s Basketball. They’re currently back in my home town of Norfolk, VA preparing to take on ODU – so it’s only appropriate to get a game day gallery put together. Conference play has been a bit of a whirlwind, but today’s gallery was an amazing win at home with a stadium filled with excited fans! There’s nothing like a win in The Convo, y’all – there’s nothing like it.

UTEP is a travel partner, so the week of this game the fellas headed up to El Paso and played The Miners at home, then turned around and took them on at The Convo later that same week. Every year, this game is a push to the finish. The guys work hard to bring home with W and this year wasn’t any different.

As you take a look through these, take in all of the athletic shots that were put up driving down the lane and all of the three-pointers with the opponents hands in their faces. One of the best bits of being on the sideline is getting to see just how tenaciously each of the guys is working.
