Jasmin is a lovely young lady who will have a special celebration in honor of her 15th birthday: a quinceañera. This is her story through photography...
A Quinceañera is the Hispanic tradition of celebrating a young girl's coming of age - her 15th birthday. Today's celebrations embrace religious customs, and the virtues of family and social responsibility. The Quinceanera tradition celebrates the young girl and recognizes her journey from childhood to maturity. The customs highlight God, family, friends, music, food, and dance.
We started the quinceanera tradition with a photo session a month before her big celebration. The photos from her session are then combined with photos of her throughout the years, growing into the young lady she is today. The photos are put into a slideshow which is played during the celebration.
On the big day of the celebration, there is a lot to do! From hair and makeup, to putting on the big gown, taking group photos, and finally with the big celebration. The photos here document the day in the life of a quinceanera... and make sure to scroll down to the bottom and view the video!
