Y’all, I am not going to lie. I have wanted to photograph a beautiful young lady in her Quinceneara dress since I started my photography business years ago, so I was over-the-moon excited when Yakelinn asked me to take her portraits in her gown.
This stunning young lady chose a beautiful, off-the-shoulder lavender dress and in true Quinceneara custom, it had a enormous skirt that absolutely made her look like a princess. (Even some little girls on our walk said so, so you know it’s true!) The entire bodice was covered in delicate cut-out flowers and embroidered into an intricate tone-on-tone pattern that extended down into the bell of the skirt. It took a bit of work maneuvering this beauty up and down bridge walks and such, but her handsome boyfriend (and entire family) was there to help!
I mean seriously. I think I was in a perpetual swoon this entire session! So much gorgeousness!
Thank you, Yakie, for giving me the honor of capturing these images for you. I hope they bring you happiness every time you look at them! May this birthday and all the others to follow be filled with joy and those that love you.
