Orona's Ranch


The other night I got to capture and celebrate wonderful Lilyana with her family as she celebrates her 15th birthday. We spent her Quinceañera at Orona's Ranch (Gloria is so amazing!) and UNM walking and talking and laughing with her, her family, and her boyfriend and had so much fun. And look at how STUNNING she is. What an honor!! Can’t wait to share more from this magical evening ❤️
