Tears and Laughter – A Emotional 15th for Nicole

Before heading out of town, I had a chance to photograph Nicole’s quinceanera, a traditional celebration in the Hispanic community of young girls turning 15. Nicole’s quince was a day full of emotion, from the mass to the end of the reception at the Col Ballroom. Here are some highlights of that special day:
