Havana Nights Quinceañera Party

Andrea and Raquel’s long awaited party finally arrived, and it was everything they ever dreamed of and more.  It was an absolute pleasure for me to photograph this event as this family is very dear to me, and the twins’ aunt, Rachel, is forever in my heart.  Andrea and Raquel are sweet, loving, beautiful girls, and it is just so much fun to be around them!  All of their friends agree with me and they were there dancing, celebrating and enjoying the night with Andrea and Raquel.  Young and old had a great time at the party.  The hall was beautifully decorated in a Havana nights theme.  Andrea and Raquel danced with their twin friends, Alex and Gabriel, and they included their family in a 15 candles ceremony.  Congratulations to the parents, grandparents, and to the entire family.   Happy Birthday Andrea and Raquel.   XOXO.

Double Trouble…

I have always found it very interesting to see twins interact, and I recently had the opportunity to see it up close while taking Andrea and Raquel’s quince portraits.  In spite of the summer heat and more than a few mosquitos, we managed to have a good time and ended up with a bunch of cool photos.  Andrea and Raquel looked beautiful.  It is really nice to see how well they get along and how much they love and look out for each other.  Here’s a slideshow I have prepared with some of the photos from the shoot.  They had their “Havana Nights” party last night, and I was also there to capture the fun with my photos, which I will be posting here soon.

Austin’s First Birthday

I had the opportunity to photograph Austin’s first birthday party.  The theme of the party was little playful monkeys.  Austin’s mom’s attention to detail in the decorations, age appropriate games for the children, and overall preparations for Austin’s party were impressive.  She did not miss a thing!  The children and the adults had a fun afternoon.  There was a lot to cover at this event and I hope my photos captured it all.  Happy Birthday Austin.  XOXO.

Merici Academy Summer Reunion 2011

For the second year in a row I was fortunate to attend and photograph the Merici Academy Summer Reunion.  The Merici Academy was an all girl Catholic school founded in Havana, Cuba in 1941.  This group of ladies have quickly grown on me and when I’m around them, I kind of feel like one of their own.  This year’s event got started with a mass officiated by Father Ernesto Fernandez-Travieso, followed by a fun cocktail hour where “the girls” got to see old friends and reminisce looking through old photographs.  We then continued to a lunch and celebration of anniversaries of the Classes of 1946, 1951, 1956 and 1966.  I love it!!!  Thank you ladies for being so classy and for trusting me with the photos of your event.It was a blast!!!
