Genesis’ Quinceanera

May 19, 2012

A Quinceanera is the Latin American celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday.  This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.  It was my pleasure to be asked to photograph this special event.  Although I had never met the Rodriguez family before the day of the celebration, and was unfamiliar with the quinceanera tradition, I immediately felt comfortable with this fun and friendly group of people.  Genesis is a graceful and beautiful young woman, and was radiant in her multi-layered aqua colored gown. Her boyfriend, Wender, was one of the most polite and attentive young men I have ever met.  And the celebration was just as formal and exciting as any wedding I’ve ever been to. I hope you enjoy these pictures~ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
