Valentina contacted me to ask if I could photograph her in a gorgeous dress she was going to wear to a Quinceañera as a guest. Of course, I said YES! A quinceañera is a Latin American celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday and her transition from childhood to adulthood, which usually involves Mass followed by a party!
Valentina loved the portraits that Cecilia & Martín took in Downtown Tulsa for their engagement portraits and wanted to capture a similar look. I love photographing referrals from previous clients –Thank you for making me feel so loved!
The day of the Quinceañera, I met Valentina downtown. She had her makeup done by MAC and it looked flawless! I fell in love instantly with her two piece floral dress – Valentina looked like a real life princess! She brought along a handmade shawl made with love from Mexico. (I love it when clients bring sentimental items to their portrait sessions!) I feel the images really captured her confidence and personality. My fiancé Daniel came along as a lighting assistant. Didn’t he do a great job?! Here are some of my favorite portraits from her session:
We photographed all around Downtown Tulsa, but one of Valentina’s favorite locations was the Gold Arch!
She LOVED the images at her Showcase Ordering Session! Valentina chose a 10×10 press book to commemorate the day. She received a beautiful, fully retouched book as well as a digital copy of each image. Here are her album spreads below:
Valentina, thank you for choosing me to capture this special day! You were a joy to photograph and I hope you had a wonderful time at the Quinceañera!
