Barquin Photography has over 15 years of experience in family, children, maternity and newborn photography. Our studio is a family owned business operated by a husband and wife team, Carlos and Eli Barquin. Eli has a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Florida International University and a Master’s degree from Barry University. Before launching the studio she worked as a first grade teacher at Miami Heights Elementary. She has managed the daily operation of the studio since it’s start in 2001.
Carlos’ visual career stems from his years of experience in local and network television. Carlos graduated from Florida International University in 1995 with a BS in Communications. After graduation he started his television career at WSVN Channel 7 as a news editor. Two years later Carlos left WSVN and joined WLTV Univision 23 as an editor and 6 months later was promoted to news photographer. Two years later Carlos accepted an offer to join the Telemundo Network’s national morning show. He was instrumental in the launch of Telemundo’s first national morning show. During his 8 years in Telemundo Carlos traveled the world and worked important assignments such as: Sydney Olympics in 2000, Death of Pope John Paul II in Vatican City, Torino Winter Games 2006, 9-11 Anniversaries and several Presidential Elections. In 2001 Carlos started the studio as a personal project. As the studio’s popularity grew Carlos decided to manage it full time in 2008.
The boutique studio is conveniently located in the Bird Road Arts District. It is designed to provide families and children the most comfortable ambiance during their photography sessions. We work by appointment only since our focus is on reserving time exclusively for one client at a time.
Carlos has earned many awards throughout his career and was voted South Florida Parenting Magazine’s Best Children, Family and Maternity Photographer in 2009. Our studio offers a variety of photography collections to best suit your needs including our very popular baby plan. We also specialize in communion and baptism, fashion, high school seniors and lifestyle photography.
