I recently had the honor of photographing a quinceanera, a coming of age celebration for a 15-year-old girl in the Latin American community. I had never photographed a quinceanera before, so I didn’t know quite what to expect, but I was eager and excited. When I showed up at Maimunah’s house in Durham the week prior to the event, to shoot some portraits of her, I was floored by the beauty and intricacy of her gown.
The quinceanera party itself was held at Carmen’s Cuban Cafe in Morrisville. After a beautiful ceremony celebrating Maimunah’s coming of age, and the wonderful Cuban food, the party really got hopping under the flashing lights and pulsating music. What a party! I’m so glad I got to be a part of this wonderful quinceanera experience. Congratulations to Maimunah and her family!
