Although this teen studio session was shot last August… and although I don’t often shoot in my downtown studio… I am so in love with this session! I may be slightly biased because Brentley is my drop-dead, gorgeous niece, but come on, this session was incredible! Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for a different kind of prom gown, and the minute I saw images of Brentley’s prom gown last year, I knew we’d be having a session together! (For the record, we will be shooting her prom gown from this year as well!!)
I think what makes me love this prom gown so much is the contrast between the bodice and the skirt. The bodice is classic black, barely beaded and the neckline is an off-the-shoulder v-neck. While the skirt is a very classic A-line cut, the printed fabric features a wildly modern large printed rose pattern. Long gone are the days when formal ball gowns were monochromatic or of only one color. And pockets!! Many formal gowns now have pockets!
Brentley completed her own look doing her own hair and makeup. While I don’t usually advocate this because I think everyone deserves a good professional pampering prior to a professional photoshoot, Brentley’s makeup and hair looked amazing! Surely it didn’t hurt that she has a flawless palette to start with!
A girl can never have enough portraits (or clothes), so Brentley also wanted a few shots in a second outfit. I obliged.

I am a San Antonio-based wedding photographer and I cater to outdoor-loving couples who prefer to have all the realness captured on their wedding days. I am the wedding photographer for the outdoor adventurers, the romantics, the laid back, the snugglers, and those who wish to capture all their realness.
I am absolutely in love with capturing the kinds of weddings where there are more hugs than handshakes, the dance floor rumbles all night long, and chairs are pretty much rendered useless after dinner. Whiskey bottles are passed around, most of the wedding party has been best-best friends since kindergarten, Grams is likely to lose her shoes and your partner is much more emotional than you are. These kinds of weddings are my jam!
I started Ata-Girl Photography Co., LLC in 2010. I firmly believe that the unique set of circumstances I have faced in life has prepared me to take a personal and genuine interest in my photography clients. I enjoy documenting the important milestones and captivating moments in people’s lives. I love being a part of people’s journey and consider myself privileged to document their legacies.
I am a WPPI-C certified professional, full-time wedding photographer. I specialize in a 10-day image delivery, same-day prints, same-day slideshows, Italian handcrafted wedding albums and I have a mobile meeting space.
When I’m not behind my camera, you can find me hiking, cycling, backpacking, camping, enjoying water sports, listening to music (Elvis and Prince), hunting for arrowheads, reading audiobooks, occasionally eating a few glazed donuts (my only weakness to sweets) and then re-starting my keto diet about every 10 days. The most important things in life are for me to see my two daughters happy and to create a family history my grandparents and grandson would be proud of.
