#HeyFrancis | A couple weekends back, I was privileged to shoot my first "Debut" for an amazing young lady by the name of Kammi. Similar to a Quinceañera in the Latin American community, a Debut signifies a Filipino woman's transition from childhood into womanhood. Going in I didn't know anyone nor what to expect, but by the end of the evening I left out feeling like I was part of the family. As traditional in Philippine Debuts, the program included the "18 Roses", "18 Treasures", and "18 Candles" presentations with a variety of performances in between.
I have to give a big shout out to my man Manny (the DJ) for acting as the host and MC for the event (his link --> www.musicalcreationsdjservice.com). All in all, Kammi's debut was full of life, laughter, and plenty of fun. A special thank you goes out to Kammi's mother, Miss Joanne, for if not for her, this exciting and memorable evening would not have been possible. Connect with me today if you're looking for photographer for your next "Debut"! Thanks for following the journey, and I hope these photos find you well.
