An extra special, Special XV Dress & Birthday portrait in Sydney.

It's not everyday my subject and her family fly in from Mexico for a portrait photoshoot. However, when it's such a very special occasion, your daughters sweet fifteen, she loves the Sydney Opera House and you love to travel; well there is only one thing you can do. Jump on that plane and head for Sydney! While the shoot itself only required a couple of hours on location (at the best time of day), there was plenty of planing and preparation beforehand. Location shots emailed back and forth, morning or afternoon? Weather checks closer to the date and only a few days from which to get our shots. And this is not just a portrait, it really is a capital F Fashion Portrait. The Quinceañera dress is as central to the picture as the location and of course our Sweet Fifteen subject (yes 15 not 16, this is for Mexico). So in a portrait situation like this, being a fashion photographer and portrait, well it certainly helps. I hope you all like these pictures as much we all do. Thier favourite was blown up very large for the birthday party later on back in Mexico. Of course no matter the occasion, if you would love a special portrait to keep those memories alive forever, call me to discuss you project.

  1. Great shots Kent! This gorgeous girl reminds me of Madonna's daughter Lourdes. I still can't believe that the family brought all her gowns and dresses all the way from Mexico City for this special occasion shoot!!
