Andrea’s French Vintage Baby Shower – La Mansion, Santa Maria Brickell

Hello fans! I’m back and ready to showcase some of my latest work. This past weekend I had the opportunity to photograph my studio partner’s wife’s baby shower. Andrea went with a simple, yet classic and elegant look to celebrate her baby girl on the way.  It was a real Parisian Princess affair held at the Mansion, Santa Maria Building in Brickell. Ivory, gold and pale pink tones lit up the main dining area with plenty of French vintage details.  The outside area featured a photobooth, courtesy of PicShare Bar with a custom-made backdrop and lots of fun baby props. Andrea’s friends and hosts, Pamela Silva Conde, Elsie Gattas and Yaneiza Echezarraga paid attention to every detail from beginning to end, making this a dream baby shower for any mom-to-be and her little princess. I’d like to give a shout out to the vendors that took part in this special event…

Mother’s Day- The perfect gift!

Mother’s day is just right around the corner. I know, I know, it sneaks up on you fast. Well at least you didn’t forget and end up missing it. You still have some time to plan.

So what are you going to get your Mom for Mother’s Day?

Sure flowers are okay, but we both know that’s the lazy way out. C’mon, this is the woman who gave birth to you. Suffered for countless hours, worried endlessly, and she let you live through your teenage years (even though sometimes you didn’t deserve it). You cannot give her a gift that will be dead two day later.
This is the woman that loves you unconditionally. You have to put some thought in to her present this year, especially after all those years of handmade cards.

We both know your hand made cards were never really that great.

Think a little bit.

Does anyone else smell smoke?

I can see you are struggling. Can I make a suggestion?

All mothers love photos of their kids; I will guarantee your that family portrait will never be forgotten. She will know that you really took the time to get her something she wants. Plus, a family portrait is still easy to arrange. All you have to do is make a phone call to your local photographer. At most you’ll have to send a couple of emails to your siblings, but you will have a gift that will bring tears to your mom’s eyes.

Portraits are timeless, one size fits all, and they never where out. As a matter of fact, a family portrait is the only gift that you can give that is priceless.

Show your mom how much you love her. Make a memory this year.

To make it even easier, give Barquin Photography a call and we will prepare a beautiful personalized gift certificate for you to give mom on mother’s day.

Give us a call today at 305.984.8028 you won’t be sorry!

Professional Head Shots: Important In The New Economy, Miami Photographer

Once upon a time, head shots were almost exclusively used by realtors, actresses, and other specialized professionals with which presenting an image to a potential employer was an absolute necessity.  Now, however, they’re widely used by job seekers, everyday professionals, and those who maintain an online presence as part of earning their living.  In this new business climate, professional head shots have become necessary for those of us who want to stand out from the rest of the crowd.


With the proliferation of social networking, our lives have become more complicated.  Websites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter are not only used to communicate our favorite recipes or chat with friends, but also serve as gateways through which we can meet new clients and employers.  With this in mind, it is necessary for us to present a positive image of ourselves.  While a well-written resume or personal statement is certainly a prerequisite for accomplishing this goal, these have become so commonplace that there is need for something else, something more personal.  That is where a professional head shot can really add the perfect touch to an already polished online image.


Head shots are particularly important if you’re seeking out work, such as the case with many new college graduates and the recently laid off.  In our new economy, where jobs are less prevalent and employers can be more picky, job seekers must employ every tactic they can think of to separate themselves from the lot of other applicants.  For one position, there may be well over a hundred different applicants, all vying for work.  Because of this, you should strive to present as professional of an image as you can, and that means having a professionally photographed head shot attached to your application.


Employers, clients, human resource agents, and potential partners all enjoy being able to place a name to a face.  With the right clothes, your best smile, and an agreeable personality captured by the right photographer, you can control your image and wield it to your advantage.  Employees are expected more than ever today to market themselves and their skills to clients and employers.  While it is easy enough to gloss over the customary resume, a head shot is something that will always draw attention.  Whether you intend to use a photograph on your favorite social networking site or for trying to find work, honing your image to where you control what is projected will place you ahead of the competition and increase your likelihood of success.
