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…

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…

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! 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…

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.

There you have it! I’m really stoked to have gotten to shoot in Orlando with the team. It’s always cool to see all the behind the scenes as well as capture what these fellas are good at. We’re getting to the peak of the season, so you’ll see lots more of this team – so check back soon!

We’re currently in the middle of our holiday rush! To celebrate the holiday week, we’re offering ALL of our full length photo sessions for 40% off. You can book a session with us anytime this week through 12/1 & receive the discount. We’ve been having a blast with all of the cool families and couples throughout the last few weeks and can’t wait to adventure with more of you guys!

We’re also doing another set of Grinch mini sessions this upcoming weekend. It looks like it’s supposed to rain on Saturday, so we’re going to move the second session to Sunday! You can book between 9-2 to grab yourself a spot with our resident Whovillian! We’re booking at half hour increments (9, 9:30, etc.) & these sessions are running for $65. We had a blast last Saturday & Josh gets really into character!

Lastly, we’re offering a cool Flower Vault mini session deal on Friday ONLY! All of our mini sessions are $65 that day, so don’t miss your chance.

As always, thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout the time our business has been up and running. As the holiday season comes around and I get to see all of the families that have been with us since day one – it reminds me how lucky we really are. Thanks for everything, y’all!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

T-MINUS 6 DAYS TIL SEASON!

Happiest of Thursday’s, friends! Josh and I just got back from our California adventure and it was an absolute blast. There’s nothing like Disneyland as an adult. I remember having a lot of fun as a young person, but it was even better with the freedom of being an adult. I’ve got a lot to catch up on – BUT IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT!

Today’s blog post is all about UTSA Men’s Basketball. We are literally so close to the season. I can’t wait to be in the convo most Thursday and Saturday nights. It’s going to be the best season we’ll get to see yet – and I can’t wait! It doesn’t hurt that I get to watch the game from the sidelines of the court, either. Actually, that’s probably one of the best parts of the whole thing!

Since we were gone for a while, I picked up a late night shift that I don’t usually do, so I didn’t get to go to tonight’s Rowdy Jam. However – I spent my time with the basketball team nonetheless. I’m really stoked to put these on the blog for you guys because I feel like the action shot part of my business keeps getting better and better & more and more fun!

As you go through these, I hope you can see the intensity these guys are bringing to this practice. They can feel how close the season is, too! If you’re interested in more than just seeing these guys through pictures, they’ll be opening up at the Convo next Wednesday, 10/30, so don’t miss it!

There you have it! Make sure you check out these guys during the season that is quickly approaching. If you’re feeling as impatient as I am, come out and support next Wednesday!

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…

UTSA Women’s Soccer v USF

Happy Friday, everyone! We’re finally right at the cusp of the weekend and it’s going to be a great one here at the Modica household. UTSA is back in the dome taking on Army! How exciting is that? As a military brat, it’s going to be so excellent to see the structure and function of something I’ve always known. Hopefully we’ll see you there!

Today’s blog post is all about our Women’s Soccer team. These ladies are very fun to watch and even more fun to shoot. There’s a tenacity that you can’t quite understand unless you’re standing right there watching – and in this case, I get to shoot and document it, too. Getting to be right in the action is my absolute favorite and I’m so stoked there’s still a bunch of season left to be played.

The game shots you’re about to see are very intense. Their match against USF was one that had all these ladies moving from one side of the field to the other without much time in between. The day was so hot and the sun was so bright – I still have a tan line on my arm from it! As the game unfolded, it was cool to see how each of these ladies stepped up and put their game faces on.

As you look through them, I hope you enjoy the tenacity and excitement these chicks have for the game – despite the heat. Hopefully you’re convinced enough to join us this evening at Park West to see them take on Oral Roberts!

There you have it! Ladies, I’m always impressed by your game play. Thanks for being so intense and still looking good in these photos. If you’re interested, Park West is hosting a match this evening. Head out and support our Runners!

If you’ve been around, you know that we’re booking our fall mini sessions. From now until 11/1, we’re scheduling these gorgeous little sessions. At $140, these sessions are 30 minutes long and you’ll all the best photos in a digital gallery. These are so quick and allow for families with little ones or fur babies to get in and out without an issue or impatience. Personally, these are my absolute favorite sessions and I can’t wait for San Antonio to actually look like it’s fall.

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting what our set up looks like for these mini sessions. I’m excited for everyone to see how we embrace fall here at Boshnasty Photos. Of course, you’re welcome to have your own location in mind when you book – we’re flexible and want to give you guys what you want from your session.

On that note, I am quickly running out of weekdays/weekends that are free for sessions. If you’d like to secure a spot before the new year, please reach out soon! I can’t wait to work with all you lovely people and would hate to have to turn people away. You can book a session in December now, just to make sure you get a spot on our schedule! To sweeten the deal, we’re offering 10% off our fall minis and Christmas card sessions. Use the contact form below to grab a spot before I close booking for the year!

Lastly, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone keeping up with us. This is my dream and it’s slowly coming to life because of all the great people that read the blog, book a session, or simply click on our photos on social media. This couldn’t be done without you guys, and I’m so pleased to have such amazing people in my life! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Until the next time, friends! Keep on adventuring…

UTSA V-BALL v. Houston

Happiest of Thursday’s, everyone! We are so close to the weekend, you can almost taste it. It’s going to be a jam packed one for me, between a few portrait sessions and all the UTSA Athletics goodness happening. I can’t wait and I know Josh is looking forward to all the running around we’ll be doing.

I’m putting something a little new on the blog today! It’s definitely not weird to see action shots, but I got to incorporate a whole new sport into my repertoire. Its been a bit since I played the actual sport, yet I was reminded last week just how much I really love volleyball. It was cool to be down on the floor so close to all the action – watching the hitters do their thing was most excellent!

I took in two of the three home games last week and both were hard fought battles. It’s crazy to think that one or two rallies is the difference between a win and a loss. I appreciated watching all the different positions and learning how best to capture the shot. As the season progresses, I’m pretty stoked to move around and see what my range for the sport really is.

I hope you enjoy my take on the intense action of UTSA Volleyball. Between the sprawling an immense air each of these ladies managed to achieve, there’s lots of action to go around!
