Aimara Coronado’s Quinceañera

There comes a time in our lives when our traditional cultures recognize, and begin to depend on us, as young adults. The quinceañera is a big one.

It was my privilege to shoot yesterday, at Aimara’s induction into adulthood. The ceremony was held in church, and the party (naturally) at a local Shriners’ gathering hall. The ceremony was conducted entirely in Spanish; the party about half and half, with plenty of cumbias, rancheras, and traditional waltzes—and a few questionable classics to keep it spicy.
