I know what you might be thinking, but let me stop you there! Unfortunately we were not in Paris, France. Although, with all the recent terrorist bombings and all, who would want to be there?! Either way, I'm glad I was still able to bring France to Ashley's memories for her Quinceañera through my trusty friend, Photoshop!
I met Ashley and her mother at a baby shower that I was hired to photograph. The baby shower was for our very dear friend and now repeat client, Amy! Ashley and her mother were guests at the party and upon seeing me in action, requested my card and informed me about the plans to throw Ashley a party for her 15th birthday, common celebration among Latino families. They were very lovely people. We exchanged info and enjoyed the rest of the evening.
I learned that Ashley loves Paris. It was set to be the theme for her party. I figured I could have a little fun with giving her a photo that looked like she had made a cameo in the romantic city. She had enlisted teammates from her high school volleyball team to be part of her entourage, as well as some cousins and church friends. We drove around in a white stretched hummer to various DTLA landmarks to snap some fun photos before we made our way to the reception where food and games were waiting!
Documenting the Insanity of the Obvious!! :) Welcome to my photography blog. Will attempt to fill you in on all of the fun and excitement that AUGUSTUS is being exposed to!
