Birthday Portrait

It’s busy busy busy in the Machado house these days!  Project Hope is well under way, I will post with details tomorrow!  We have some close friends visiting here from Canada.  One of the reasons for their visit was to come for a one of the girls from the orphanage 15th birthday.  15 birthdays are very important here in Mexico.  They are often celebrated with big fancy parties that include ceremonies and receptions.  So we are busy making decorations and getting things ready for this young lady.  A few weeks ago I had the privilege of taking some portraits of the birthday girl.  Isn’t she gorgeous!  Here are a few of my favorite shots!

So what do you think?

    I’m still trying to get over the shock that she’s 15 already! Gloria you are such a beauty! What lovely photos Amber.
