Every so often I get the joy of photographing a Sweet 15, also known as a Quinceañera. If you have never heard of one it is similar to a Sweet 16 but as extravagant as a wedding!  The point is to introduce the young girl to society and giving thanks for her reaching this age. 

The entire festivity is full of spiritual and emotional moments, and composed of several events that take place, where God, thanksgiving, food, music and dance are the mix of ingredients for a joyous culmination after months of planning.

Here are a few photos from some of the Quinceañera's I have had the honor of photographing.
