I found portraits incredibly intimidating, so when I was asked to take photos of this lovely lady for her Quinceanera, I couldn't help but hesitate. But with her incredible faith and patience with my perfectionism and OCD like tendencies, we had a great time. :)

Thank you everyone who I pestered with my emails about portraits, lighting, ideas, etc.. Your help was invaluable and inspiring!

I shall put more shots up soon, and yes John I did take shots in the "blazin' sun" too :)
