I am getting ready to start a new photograph in my series. This image is based on a very traditional Mexican event the Quinceañera.
Last summer as I walked the neighborhood I witnessed this event many times. The next Photograph will depict the private event that happens before the large celebration. The blessing in front of the immediate family. This is also when the God-parents present the 15 year old girl her first pieces of jewelry as a woman.
I have just completed the alterations on the dress that will be worn by the Jessenia, I am still working on the needlepoint for this scene once completed I will be ready to take this photo.
