I pretended to be a Real Photographer last weekend

I was asked to photograph one of my sweet hermanitas last weekend in honor of her upcoming quinceanera. It is an important part of a young Hispanic girl's life and I wanted it to be the best for her. So with trembling legs, and lots of advice from Jen, I bravely set forth.



She is so beautiful and sweet and was very cooperative with this fumbling amateur photographer. I look at the photos and I can see all my mistakes. I was very frustrated with the light and the thermometer in my car registered 110 degrees when we pulled up to the park....but...

I learned so much and it was super fun to be of service to this delightful family.  I think I better prepare TL for a new camera budget.........
