Mischa | Quinceañera Portraits | Laguna Gloria

It was a beyond-gorgeous Memorial Day. We’ve had a very rainy Spring in Austin, TX, but luckily the weather was perfect for Mischa’s quinceañera portraits. This was my first time taking Quince portraits, and this session made me fall in love with them! The gorgeous gowns and the tradition behind quinceañeras is so much fun! Mischa’s session was at Laguna Gloria, a sculpture garden and art school part of the Austin Contemporary. The house and grounds was a perfect place to showcase the beautiful dress Mischa wore. Nowadays, quince girls wear ball gowns similar to prom or wedding dresses, but Mischa’s dress is a traditional Mexican dress hand embroidered in Mexico! Mischa was joined by her sista Donaji, whom I had the pleasure of taking college graduation portraits of this year, her cousin and aunt!

I had Mischa do a lot of twirling which was perfect! This was her princess moment!
