I am writing this tonight with a heart full of gratitude! Back in March, I was asked to shoot a Quinceanera for the wonderful “R” family. Those of you who follow my work, have seen the pre-quince pictures of their beautiful daughter. I enjoyed every minute that I was able to spend with this wonderful family. I witnessed so much love between mother and daughter when we began shooting J’s portraits. J was full of beauty, humor, and spirit. Every moment spent with her and her mother was a blessing. When we first began shooting, J’s big day was months away, but that quickly came upon her family, friends, and I. That day I was privy to witness the love between J and her wonderful family. I watched her father’s eyes, when he saw his daughter walk down the stairs after her mother helped her get into her beautiful ballgown. The look her grandmother had when she walked through the door, was so endearing. This was definitely one of my favorite days so far, because I was blessed to see all the different emotions that J’s family shared. I am very pleased to release this sneak peak into a few of the moments that I captured on this incredibly memorable day.
