I have been DYING to do this blog post for a month and now that the family has seen their photos, I am free to share. I absolutely love these!
Celebrating with Erin for her fifteenth birthday was a joy and an honor. I was referred by another photographer and am so grateful for the amazing network of photographer friends I have.
Enough about me, though ... let's look at Erin's gorgeous birthday party!
For those of you that don't know - a quinceañera is a really big deal in a young hispanic girl's life; it celebrates her commitment to Christ as well as her entrance to womanhood. This beautiful tradition is usually greeted with great revelry and genuine celebration with her family and friends.
Erin and her family attended her blessing Mass at The Holy Rosary Catholic Church in downtown Houston and the party that followed took place at The Parador, also in Houston, TX. The Holy Rosary Catholic Church is a stunning architectural beauty: built in traditional Roman Catholic style. The Parador is a photographer's dream, to be honest! Every nook and cranny of that spectacular event venue appeals to a photographer's creative and emotional side...plus, Erin's mom did a FANTASTIC job designing the décor!
Much a like a wedding, a quinceañera's beautiful moments are captured in the details.

Even the escorts get dressed up for this beautiful celebration!
Here, Erin is receiving prayers and blessings from the priest before receiving her gifts from her Godparents.
The father - daughter dance is as significant in a quince as it is in a wedding. There is no love like a father's love, and Erin is truly blessed.
Finally, I give to you the BEAUTIFUL birthday girl and her handsome young escort, Marco.
