I had the honor of photographing this young lady a few weeks back. She needed portraits for her Quinceañera invitations and to display an enlarged image at her actual Quinceañera party. For those who might not be from Southern California where the tradition is strong, a Quinceañera is a party to celebrate a girls coming of age. In the Latin culture, that time happens when she turns 15. The God parents host a large party akin to a wedding including fancy dresses, loud music, and lots of love!
She was poised and graceful, and it was a pleasure working with her and her family for such a special event. I love how her outdoor portrait session turned out! The light was golden hour perfection and it was set in her uncle’s perfectly landscaped back yard in Ramona, CA. We added in her mask that she will be wearing at her Quinceañera party. I can’t wait to see her ball gown, I’m sure she will look like a princess at her masquerade ball! I have so many favorites from her session, so I wanted to share some of them along with some of her families favorites. These are a surprise for the actual party though, so if you know her, please keep it a secret!
