For many previous generations, immigrants to the US had left their culture behind as they assimilated into the American landscape. Today it seems that more people are celebrating their heritage and culture in the US, rather than forgetting it.
Recently I provided Emely and her family with some photos for her Quinceañera. While a Quince, as many call it is similar to an American Sweet 16, for many families, these parties are more elaborate than some weddings.
Anyhow, here’s a photo that came out nice.
From Wikipedia: “Quinceañera, sometimes called fiesta de quince años, fiesta de quinceañera, quince años or simply quince, is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America and elsewhere in communities of people from Latin America.”
