“Quinceañera is the Spanish word for a girl who is 15 years old. Among Latinos in the United States, quinceañera also is the name given to the coming-of-age celebration on a girl’s 15th birthday. The quinceañera has its origins many centuries ago when both boys and girls participated in rites of passage.” (reference)
It was so special to capture portraits of this charming family. With their daughters party later that afternoon and a storm on the horizon, we were thrilled to squeeze in some nice outdoor family portraits. There were chickens running around, herded by an aggressive rooster. There were tall grasses, open plains, and the lines of the Colorado mountains in the distance. I could not have asked for a better setting.
