Perla's Quinceanera


So this last weekend I was fortunate enough to take pictures for a Quiceanera. I've never been to one, let alone take a photo shoot for one, but I wanted to expand my horizons and it all worked out in my favor.  In case you don't know what a quiceanera is, it is a celebration of a girl's fifteenth birthday. These are celebrated from Latin America to all the way up here in Ohio! This celebration marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood. 

I loved the experience. I enjoy being around different cultures and learning about them. It's crazy how we are all the same yet so different at the same time. I find it fascinating.  But I digress. It was unlike any other birthday party I had been to. It was very official I guess you could say.  There are a DJ, and every action was announced over microphone from dancing to cutting the cake. With three weddings to do this year I look forward to the many events that I will have the honor to take pictures for just like this one.

Below are some of the photos I took from before and during the party! Enjoy!
