Aaliyah's Quinceanera | Chicago, Illinois | Emma BelenPhotography

I had the great opportunity to photograph Aaliyah's Quince and I have to say I'm so grateful that I got the chance to meet this young lady and her family. Mike and Mayra, Aaliyah's parents, not only are great people, but also amazing parents who care deeply about their children.

Mike and Mayra needed to celebrate their beautiful daughter's Quince even though it meant that they needed to change their original plans due to Covid. So, they planned a surprise Quinceanera for Aaliyah's at her grandfather's farm with all of Aaliyah's closed friends and family.

Aaliyah wore an amazing dress and she believed that we were only doing a photoshoot, but when She arrived at the farm she was surprised by her family and friends waiting anxious to celebrate her life.

It was a beautiful day to celebrate Aaliyah! Congratulations!
