The girl gets special clothing, is dressed up and gets a perfect makeup. Then they go to a photographer to take beautiful photographs.
According to our guide, some girls are dressed like a bride, other wear cocktail dresses and I also noticed photographs showing a girl dressed like a female version of an old-fashioned, spanish caballero. The photographs are usually taken in a park or in the streets and not in a studio.
Two weeks later, there is a party with all of her friends and an album, containing the photos, is the eyecatcher for that party. Also, the parents put framed photos on their wall, taken during that session.
I like that idea. (OK, maybe, because I’m a photographer).
So, we can congratulate her for her 15th birthday.
Are there any similar habits, where you live or coming from?
