Antonella's Quinceañera

Antonella's Quinceañera

Antonella and her family have a special place in my heart. One of my first "real" jobs was at a preschool and I got to watch Antonella and her sister Sophia while her mom planned lessons and taught. It's such a strange and incredible feeling to photograph Antonella and her friends at the turn of adulthood, it made me feel super reminiscent (and a little old)!

We took informal portraits of Antonella and her court at Apoxee Trail and formal portraits on Worth Avenue on Palm Beach. Antonella told me she loves nature, flowers and describes herself as a hippie so I thought the Apoxee Trail would be perfect for her. I really loved her style and the flower headband she sported at the informal portraits. She also walked the trail in heels, which is truly a feat for any woman.
