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…

Miss Ashley – Class of 2019

Happy Saturday, guys! It’s one of my favorite days – GAME DAY! The fellas of UTSA Men’s Basketball are taking on Southern Miss and I can’t wait to get my camera out and shoot what I hope is going to be a great game. Basketball season is one of my favorite seasons and getting to shoot every Saturday is everything!

Today’s blog post is surprisingly not about basketball. In my time at UTSA, I’ve also gotten to work with lots of the different athletic’s teams – cheer being one of my favorites. I get to meet amazing people, too – like Miss Ashley. This girl is filled with so much potential, personality, and is gorgeous to boot. When she decided to book with me for senior photos, I knew we were going to do some great things.

This session was done in three parts. I got to meet all the kids in her classroom, her pup, and tour around UTSA’s campus. Each part of these sessions were special in their own way and Ashley rocked every single one of them. One of the best parts, though – each outfit worked amazingly and brought out a new piece of her personality.

As you go through these, enjoy all of the different pieces of Ashley you get to see. There’s some Dr. Seuss, tons of cute outfits, and a celebration of all things cheer. I had a great time with these and can’t wait to share them with you guys!

There you have it! Ashley, thank you so so much for trusting me with this big deal. It’s so cool to celebrate with all of my seniors. It’s such a big accomplishment, graduating from college – & I’m always so honored to be a part of it!

We’re also currently booking our Valentine’s Day sessions. For the young ones, we’re putting together a kissing booth that will make for a really gorgeous backdrop. For all the adults, we’re putting together short mini sessions at our favorite outdoor shooting location out in Boerne. These sessions would make for great gifts for your loved ones or for mom’s of little ones that want adorable photos of their littles!

We’re also introducing a referral program. If you’ve shot with us before and happen to know other people that need some photos done – refer us! If they book a session, you’ll get your next session for 50% off. Just tell them to use the code BOSHNASTY20! We love our return costumers and want to share the love with everyone!

As usual, we want to thank everyone for all of the support. Heading into a new year is always a little scary, but we’re surrounded by people that are so supportive and so willing to enjoy all of the work that we put out. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is a dream and we’re so stoked to keep on living it.

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

Michael – Class of 2019!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It has been a long one for me, so I’m so very stoked to wind down with my photos and spend time honing in on my craft. Here’s hoping you guys have been having a better day than me!

Today’s blog post is all about my good friend Michael. Not only is he a recent graduate, but he’s one of the smartest cookies I’ve ever met. He and I first met in my office, where we’re both tutors. I remember sitting in one of the cubbies listening to him go on and on about coding and computer stuff. I knew then that this guy was really good at what he was doing. Over the next little bit, tutoring kept us in touch – so when he approached me to do his senior photos, I knew it would be a total blast.

& I wasn’t disappointed a single bit. Michael is filled with personality, intelligence, and is destined to do some great things in his industry. Our time around campus was spent with me learning more about him, his dreams, and his time at UTSA. One of the best parts of this job is getting to know clients and capturing what that means in the photos.

As you go through these, I hope you enjoy his stellar outfit and the cool spots that we ended up grabbing throughout our tour of campus. I had a blast, & I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking & editing them.

There you have it! Senior sessions are my absolute favorite in terms of getting to celebrate people’s huge accomplishments. Getting to shoot all the spots on campus that have made an impact on so many people is so amazing. If you’re about to graduate or want to get a leg up on your senior session, shoot us a message. We’re booking senior sessions all year round!

We’re also currently booking our Valentine’s Day sessions. For the young ones, we’re putting together a kissing booth that will make for a really gorgeous backdrop. For all the adults, we’re putting together short mini sessions at our favorite outdoor shooting location out in Boerne. These sessions would make for great gifts for your loved ones or for mom’s of little ones that want adorable photos of their littles!

We’re also introducing a referral program. If you’ve shot with us before and happen to know other people that need some photos done – refer us!

As usual, we want to thank everyone for all of the support. Heading into a new year is always a little scary, but we’re surrounded by people that are so supportive and so willing to enjoy all of the work that we put out. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is a dream and we’re so stoked to keep on living it.

Nursing School Graduation – Chelsea Edition!

Happy Thursday, everyone! Josh and I are getting ready to drive the twelve hours to Alabama to see some of my family and do a bunch of photography gigs. It’s always an adventure heading back that way, so we’re looking forward to the time away with new people and my amazing family!

I’ve always admired people in the medical field – especially nurses. These are the people that have to know a lot, think on their feet, and attempt to be nice to every person they come in contact with. I’m not the best with people, especially people I don’t know, so I’ve always respected the ability to do it – with a smile on your face, nonetheless. Today’s blog is all about my good friend Chelsea – who is now a graduate of UT Health’s nursing program! Which means she’s one more medical professional I can take my aches and pains to – & there’s not a thing wrong with that.

Chelsea is a beautiful lady with a personality that matches that. From the second we walked from the parking lot, we were talking about life and what comes next with ease. Though we’ve shot together before, we haven’t spent much time together outside of that – so it was cool to feel the instant connection. It made the hour we spent together go by so fast and so pleasantly. Like most of the people I shoot frequently, I’m already stoked for the next idea and can’t wait to see what we come up with next!

As you go through these, enjoy the beauty of The Pearl and the cool color coordination of UT Health’s scrubs! I enjoyed the whole process with these beauties, so I hope you guys do, too!

There you have it! Many congratulations again, Chelsea – I’m stoked to see where the nursing world takes you and how much goodness you bring to the world. We’re lucky to have ya!

Since we’re heading back to Alabama, we’ll be opening up some sessions on Friday & Saturday night specifically for my Alabama pals! If you’re interested, fill out the contact form below.

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…

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…

Ms. Georgia – Senior Pictures!

Happy Saturday, everyone! It has been a long day for Josh & I. We drove ourselves home from the great state of Colorado – and if you’ve done that from Texas, you know it’s a very VERY long drive! We’re currently lounging around and I’m catching up on all the editing from the passed couple of weeks. Here’s hoping you guys are enjoying your own blissful day!

Today’s blog post is all about Ms. Georgia. This chick is one of my niece’s very best friends. One of the best parts of being an aunt is getting to see how all of the people I love & care about grow. Which means I get to see the people they love & care about grow up, too. Georgia has been friends with Tori for years, so I’ve caught her here and there throughout all the cool portions of her life. I had the cool honor of capturing one of the best parts of growing up, though – graduating! She’s a 2020 graduate, but it’s worth celebrating, nonetheless.

Georgia is very quiet and reserved, choosing to keep her smiles and laughs for the people & things she cares about the most. Our first stop on this little picture tour was her favorite coffee shop. If you live in Auburn, Alabama you know this little place. It’s unique and chill, down to Earth in all the right ways. Probably one of the coolest places I’ve gotten to shoot at thus far, too! Check out Mama Mocha’s if you’re ever in the area.

Our next stop was the Arboretium. This place is so gorgeous and has such a diverse selection of places to get great shots. It’s also a special place to Georgia & her family, so that was just icing on the cake!

The last stop we made together was my favorite of the bunch! Georgia’s great-great Grandma was a dancer just like she is. Their family actually had one of their grandma’s old dance costumes that Georgia would ultimately wear. I was tasked to replicate a picture of her great-great grandma dancing in a similar costume. It was an absolute blast to play around with the posing, and Georgia looked great in the beautiful family heirloom.

As you go through these, enjoy the quiet elegance that is this young lady. You’ll see another series of these pictures later on, but for now – enjoy!

There you have it! Georgia, I’m stoked to see what your senior year is like, and can’t wait to do some more of these before you walk that stage. For all seniors like Georgia, I’m offering two part senior 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…

Jennifer Ramos – Class of 2019!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope the hump of the week is treating you well. Josh and I take off for our next vacation/work trip on Friday evening and we’re super stoked to get away from Texas and adventure somewhere else! It doesn’t hurt that my sweet little nephew is graduating, and we’ll get to celebrate that accomplishment in person.

Speaking of seniors, today’s blog post is about a graduating senior – Jennifer Ramos. Until getting to campus and getting strapped up, I had not met Jen. We spent a bit of time getting to know one another through text message while we planned out our photoshoot, but we did not meet face to face until the time of our session. It’s cool to shoot friends and people I’ve met before, but it’s another thing to shoot someone completely new. I appreciated the challenge of keeping us both comfortable throughout our shoot. The pictures turned out amazing, and we didn’t miss a beat the entire session – so I’d say it was a success!

As we toured campus, it was easy to see that Jennifer is a completely driven woman. She has a goal in mind and will continue to train and run towards it until she’s accomplished it. I also found out that Jennifer is a long distance runner, much like myself – so it was cool to trade running stories and aspirations while we went from place to place. I’m so stoked to have met you, Jen! Thanks for trusting me with these important memories – I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Check out our UTSA Campus adventure below!

There you have it! Ms. Jennifer Ramos – here’s to the future. I’m so very happy to have met you and can’t wait to see where your drive and determination takes you. You’re destined for good things, so keep on running!

We have discounted our senior sessions to $75 until UTSA’s graduation date (5/18). My campus sessions have been filled with other seniors and their photographers doing the same thing. It’s such a cool thing to see and I’m stoked to be a part of it. Contact us with the form at the bottom of this page to grab a relatively cheap session!

One last thing! Josh and I’s anniversary is coming up –  so we’re getting excited! To celebrate, we’re discounting all of our sessions by 25%. This won’t last long, so take advantage and help us celebrate the coolest day of our joint lives!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

 

Kai – Doggy Wonder!

Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope the week has been treating you right and the weekend is shaping up to be a good one. Josh and I are finally home from our vacation in Missouri. It’s always awesome to go back and see friends and family that have been an important part in our life together. It’s also super nice to be home, too.

Today’s blog post is all about Ms. Kai! This puppy is gorgeously long, and incredibly athletic. She’s got long legs and the most adorable face that shows every emotion. She loves her owner, my good friend Ms. Eliza. I’ve heard many times over that dogs save people, and I think that’s totally the case here. Eliza is a bright person, but she opens up and becomes something more when she’s around her sweet Kai. I’m such a sucker for puppy love that I had to capture this stuff on camera.

We also decided to see what Kai would look like mid-treat throw. Eliza is the best helper and did all the tossing, so all the well placed treats are courtesy of her. I think anyone would look pretty goofy with food coming towards their face, but I’m pretty certain Kai makes it look pretty cool. I’d like to continue to see what this collection looks like, so if you’ve got a puppy and you’d like to take part of this – let me know!

Go through these and enjoy the absolute adorable thing that is Kai. There are times when she looks like the cutest thing, yet there are times she looks like a raptor stalking through the grass, too. I had a great time going through these and hope you guys enjoy them just as much!

Without further ado –  Kai the Doggy Wonder!

There you have it! Kai & Eliza, thanks for being awesome and making these pictures look awesome. I’m always glad to shoot with you guys and can’t wait to have you in front of my camera again soon!

We’re currently gearing up for summer and are offering 20% off on all of our sessions! I don’t have too many spots open during June & July, so book with us now!

We’re also offering senior photo session mini sessions on Monday & Tuesday (May 13 & 14) between 12-5. Drop us a message and reserve a time to get great photos done quickly and for a reasonable price! (30 minute sessions, $75.00, 10-20 photos).

As always, thank you for your time and support! I love what we’re doing and can’t wait to do more of it – and that’s all because of you guys.

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!

There you have it! Arlayna, we wish you the best of luck. I can’t wait to taste the many creations you bring to the people of the world!

We’re still offering 45% off senior/graduation sessions! Today is the last day to grab this awesome deal. When Josh and I get back from Missouri on the 8th, all of my photography spots are dedicated to senior pictures until we pack up and leave again! Let’s take that victory lap around campus and take some fabulous pictures along the way!

All other sessions have also been discounted – we’re extending our May the 4th Flash Sale one more day. Which means all other sessions are 15% off and will stay that way until 5/8. There is a contact form at the bottom of this post to make for easy booking and question asking!

As always, we appreciate each and every person who stops & takes time to read these words and check out our images. We’re here because of you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…
