I think this young woman in Duke Gardens in Durham, NC, is being photographed for a quinceanera, an Hispanic rite of passage for girls age 15. Or so Nancy speculates.

Whatever the occasion, it makes a fine photo opportunity for you, Larry.
Larry Bliss: I just walked by and saw it...
Une jolie robe mais un peu encombrante.
Larry Bliss: Merci...
That would be my guess as well... parents will often spend more on the Quinceanera than the wedding!

At any rate - it's a wonderful image you've captured!
Larry Bliss: i like the way Mom is tending to her girl...
It looks that way, Larry. They really go to town for this celebration.
Larry Bliss: Amazing isn't it?

It is at this time she transitions from girl to woman, with all the horrors and expectations of adulthood..
Larry Bliss: Cheery today, aren't we? smile
She looks worried but the others seem happy!
Larry Bliss: I like the photo girl...
A fine photo opportunity - but she's an old looking 15 year old!
Larry Bliss: A bit heavy on the makeup I think...
I would speculate the same. A very important ritual as you can see on Mom and Dad's faces.
Larry Bliss: A big day...

What a pompous ritual - but I wonder that the other persons are not dressed up more elegantly.
Larry Bliss: I get the feeling they were waiting for a photographer...

Not even one proper camera visible. You could have offered your services smile
Larry Bliss: For a modest fee...
Wow! That is some gown she has on for the occasion. The tiara provides the finishing touch. Great shot, Larry!
Larry Bliss: It must have cost a fortune...
