To mark her passage from childhood to young womanhood, this 15-year-old girl celebrates her quinceanera with her family. As she and her family were leaving the park after having had their formal photos taken by another photographer for this special birthday celebration, I noticed that the girl lifted her hoop skirt slightly so that it wouldn't drag on the pavement, which revealed she was wearing a pair of purple high-tops underneath. And that's when I snapped this picture.
