The Lahrman’s – A family Session

Hi friends! I hope your week has been treating you well and the weekend is something to look forward to. I’ve been enjoying the late summer heat after all the rain – with Saturday looking the way it is, we might even break out our little pool!

Today on the blog we’re hanging out with the Lahrman family! This beautiful collective of humans has graced the blog many times throughout my photography adventures. Between Devon and Mike, they’ve created these gorgeous mini humans that are filled to the brim with personality and intelligence. It’s always a pleasure working with them.

When I set up my swing mini sessions, I knew Devon and her babies would be perfect to bring life to the backdrop. We had a blast celebrating mom and throwing dad in on a few of these, too! As you look through them, check out how much individuality stands out in these pictures – every one of the little ones has the biggest voice.

Before you go, I just wanted to let you know that my holiday season schedule is already filling up! The busy season is going to be extra busy. So, to entice you to book your sessions early, I’m offering 15% off all of my packages until July 31st! Shoot me a message here or find me over on any of the plethora of social media sites to book a session.

Thanks for sticking around – enjoy my fun with The Lahrman’s!

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!

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.

There you have it! The fellas play tonight out in Norfolk, but you can follow along. Tip off is at 6PM CST, so don’t miss out! We’re slowly creeping up on the end of the season, so there won’t be too many opportunities left.

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 MBB v Southern Mississippi

Happy Thursday, everyone! This week has been a little hectic, but I finally got some time today to really sit down and get some good photo work done. It feels pretty fantastic to get lost in the work & was completely what I needed. Hope you’re enjoying your day just as much!

Today’s blog post goes hand in hand with UTSA MBB’s game day tonight against North Texas. I like to get up previous conference home games when the fellas are off on the road, so that’s what we’ve got today. The game against Souther Miss was just as fun to edit as it was to shoot. The guys played so fantastically – & it shows in all of the images.

For being the second home conference game of the season, the crowd was pretty intense – & made the game play that much better. There are so many shots where you can see the crowds reaction and it’s just as exciting as the actual play in the shot. Besides getting to experience the atmosphere at each of the games, one of the best bits of the job is getting to see the game from a really excellent perspective.

As you go through these, enjoy the continued intensity that can be seen throughout the gallery of images. It’s dang cool to see the team play well and get to capture all of the good moments. Here’s hoping you enjoy, too!

There you have it! Tune in tonight to see these guys take on North Texas. It’s going to be a great game, so make sure you check back. If you’re interested in action shots like this, shoot us a message – sports season is my favorite season!

We’re currently making the most of San Antonio’s beautiful cool weather and enjoying all types of sessions. As Valentine’s Day creeps closer, we’re stoked to be offering a couple different discounted session types. These would be the perfect gift for your loved ones. What’s better than a moment in time captured through an image? Grab 15% off a full length session, or book an in-studio session for $95! Josh and I spent a bunch of time last night getting the studio set-up just right!

As always, thank you for supporting our small little love child. We’ve put so much time and effort into creating what we’re able to bring to the table for everyone and we’re able to do that because of the people that book sessions, look at our photos, or simply read our posts. Thank you, thank you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA Basketball v. Wiley College

Happiest of hump days, everyone! The Christmas holiday is quickly coming & that means the end of the semester with it. My day job is stupidly busy, which is lots of fun but kind of hectic, too. I’m so very stoked to have my photography to cut into the stress and bring me all the fun!

I figured a nice home win yesterday was a good reason to drop a game gallery. It’s always nice to go back and revisit each of the games after the fact. Initially, I go through and pick out the photos that catch my eye – but when I go back and actually take time to edit the gallery, I go through each shot one by one. In a way, it’s like watching the game all over again. It’s cool to see what memorable plays look like slowed down, or how each of the guys change and progress from game to game.

If you haven’t started coming to the games yet – that’s okay! There’s still a ton of basketball left to play and watch. As the season progresses, each of the games will be more and more intense – which is always a blast to watch. Either way, you can check back here and get all the updates you need.

As you go through these, I hope you enjoy how excited the guys are when they’re playing well. You can see the joy of playing the game on their faces – on top of the intensity, of course. Not only do they look happy playing, but they won a game in their orange jerseys!

* Fellas, if you’d like a copy of any of these photos, shoot me a message! They’ll look much better in their original format. *

There you have it! If you’re up for a little road trip, the fellas are taking on Texas State on Saturday. It’s always a good game and the atmosphere in their gym is always exciting!

We’re currently still offering our Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals – which means you can grab a full length session for $135 and a mini session for $60. & since it’s engagement seasons, we’re offering $250 off of all our wedding/marriage packages. These are our lowest prices of the year & the best time to grab a spot for a session. I don’t have too much space left and I’m loving every single second of these holiday sessions.

Since I’m such a fan of UTSA and all of the greatness it has afforded me, I’m putting our senior session prices down to $75 until 12/12. It’s a lot of fun to celebrate with all the new alum as they prepare to walk the stage!

Please capitalize on these prices while you can – we’ll be increasing our prices in the new year!

If you’re interested in any of these sessions, use the contact form below. I’m starting to put the end of the year together and I can’t wait to meet with all of you guys!

As always, thank you! We could not do this thing without you guys and there’s not enough words of thanks I could say to express how important you guys really are. We’re so stoked for this journey and can’t wait to see where it takes us!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Michelle & Trent – Christmas at Flower Vault!

Happiest of Monday’s, everyone! I hope the holiday weekend was everything you wanted it to be and everyone got to capitalize on all of the great deals that come along with our food coma holiday. Our Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal is still going and will be the best prices were offering this year!

Today’s blog post is all about Michelle and her boyfriend Trent. I know Michelle from my job in Athletics. My first year as a GA, I got to work with the Women’s Soccer team pretty closely. As the time passed, I got to spend a lot of quality moments with each of the different ladies – Michelle included. As a former athlete, it was really easy to connect with this lady & it doesn’t hurt that we’re both really into school and stuff, either.

When Michelle approached me about a session, I jumped on it the second that I could. It’s not often that I get to shoot a COUPLE at Flower Vault. I absolutely love that space and it’s a challenge to get people in poses that look good with the same background in each of them. I love a challenge – it’s what makes my job the most fun. When you go through these, you can tell that we had a lot of fun enjoying the space!

While you go through these, I hope you enjoy all of the love between these two. They seem to really enjoy each other’s company and make a good pair!

There you have it! Michelle & Trent, it was a joy to get to know you as a couple and shoot together. We’re currently offering our mini sessions for $60, so a trip to the Flower Vault would be a good way to use that mini session!

We’re currently still offering our Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals – which means you can grab a full length session for $135 and a mini session for $60. & since it’s engagement seasons, we’re offering $250 off of all our wedding/marriage packages. These are our lowest prices of the year & the best time to grab a spot for a session. I don’t have too much space left and I’m loving every single second of these holiday sessions. You can also put this session price towards senior photos.

Please capitalize on these prices while you can – we’ll be increasing our prices in the new year!

If you’re interested in any of these sessions, use the contact form below. I’m starting to put the end of the year together and I can’t wait to meet with all of you guys!

Sunshine Slam – Game #3 v. Delaware

Happiest of Tuesday’s, everybody! I’m hoping that everyone is enjoying the time leading up to the holiday with family and friends. The end of the week is when the craziness begins, so enjoy the calm while you can! As for the Modica’s, we’re enjoying all of the holiday and then some.

Today’s blog is all the final game in UTSA’s performance in the Sunshine Slam against Delaware. These are probably the best of the bunch in my opinion – mainly because I love shooting these fellas in their white jerseys. Regardless of that, the game was one of the better of the bunch, too! There are plenty of cool three point shots in this group of photos.

Despite not getting the results they wanted in Orlando, all of the games were good learning opportunities nonetheless – & I don’t mean just for the guys. Every time I get to shoot, I feel like I’m learning something completely new. The best angle for these shots was sitting on the floor – so I needed to figure out the best way to do that with the angle I like to shoot and my height. It was a lot of fun, to say the least.

As you go through these, enjoy how laid back the guys seem to be in them. Out of all three games, they seemed to be more at ease in their game play than all the rest.
